About Amy

Learn Amy’s areas of practice.

YOUR CHAMPION IN THE COURTROOM, YOUR VOICE IN NEGOTIATION. ROBIDAS LAW CAN HELP.

I am originally from Pennsylvania, but relocated to Maine after serving as an Electronics Technician in the US NAVY.  I attended the University of Southern Maine and the University of Maine School of Law.  After graduating from law school with honors, I worked as an associate at a firm in Portland, where I practiced  family law and criminal defense exclusively.  

 

Amy’s practice is 100% litigation and continues to focus on criminal defense and family law, including divorce, parental rights and responsibilities, enforcement of orders, protection from abuse, protection from harassment, and post judgment custody issues. Amy is admitted to practice in both state and federal courts and is a member of the Maine State Bar Association and the Edward Gignoux Inn of Court. She is a past president of the Maine Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and current Chair of the Family Law Section of the Maine State Bar Association.

The best choice
I was hesitant to hire an attorney for my divorce but there are financial and personal considerations that, even though I hadn't thought of them, needed to be addressed. That is where Amy came in and I am so happy with the results. She is beyond professional. Her guidance through the process was well worth the cost.

Outstanding Assistance
Amy responded immediately to our initial request to review a 2000 divorce and a recently filed QDRO. It was not a black and white issue. Her analysis of the situation proved to be spot on, which was verified as more information became available. She was honest with me on my chances of prevailing early in the process which allowed me to make an informed decision concerning the risks/rewards of proceeding without first spending a lot of money. I strongly recommend her and would use her again without hesitation.

Amy and her team are the best!
I reached out to Amy for help with a post divorce child custody modification. Amy and her Team were incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive. Many times I had to contact Amy or her office with issues on very short notice and she was always quick to respond and offer realistic advice. She advocated for what was best for my son and for me and also had great suggestions to reach an agreement with my child's father that were fair and reasonable. I highly recommend Amy!!

So Appreciative!
I cannot thank Amy Robidas and her paralegals enough. Their commitment, compassion, expertise and support throughout my divorce was so incredibly stellar. It isn’t too much to say Amy exceeded my expectations and raised the bar. Getting a divorce can be a daunting experience to go through. Amy and her team made me feel heard and importantly that I was not alone. Highly recommend Amy’s firm Robidas Law, LLC to anyone going through a divorce and you want the best of the best.

Highly recommend
Amy helped me through a parental custody and schooling issue for my child. She was always quick to respond to any questions I had and made sure to have my best interest in mind when working on the case. I hope to never need a lawyer again in the future, but if I do Amy will be the first person I call.

TB
I was in a bad spot mentally and emotionally and didn't know what to do. Once I was in contact with Amy, she was able to put my mind at ease. She was able to clearly explain each part of the process and was someone I knew I could contact at any time I had questions. Amy was very understanding of my situation, which had multiple layers, and she treated me with respect throughout. I appreciated all of these aspects! From the beginning, and throughout the entire process, Amy was someone that I knew was doing whatever possible to have my best interests at the forefront.

Very professional
Amy handled our parental rights and responsibilities case. She drew up a petition to the court within a few days of us speaking with her. She worked hard to get the paperwork served across state lines and would follow up with the sheriffs and courts when things weren’t moving as quickly as expected. She was very accurate with record keeping and made herself available for phone calls, drop-ins to her office, or emails. I would definitely hire her again if needed, thank you Amy!

The Very Best Representation
Amy represented me during my very traumatic divorce. Her efficiency and professionalism in handling my case, made the process much less painful. She listens and works to understand. She is empathetic, kind and at the same time a very strong force to be reckoned with. I felt confident and comfortable knowing she had my very best interest in mind. She was vey accessible, promptly answered questions, dispelled doubts/fears and delivered everything she promised. I listened to her counsel and did everything she recommended. My divorce was finalized so quickly and I am very grateful.

Best Decision I made!
Amy has been incredible to work with. I put off hiring an attorney to deal with my high conflict ex for many years, afraid of what the legal process would entail. Amy is quick to respond, answers all my questions, and puts my mind at ease. She has a very large breadth of knowledge, and is the best advocate I could ask for. The only thing I would change would be hiring her sooner!

Wonderful Representation
It took me a while to write this for Amy because I wanted to have proper time to reflect on what has happened since my divorce. No one plans to have their lives upended and relationships end in divorce. When you start down the path of divorce, the idea that the relationship will close a chapter amicably tends to quickly give way to personal best interests. This ended up being a very high-conflict divorce where there was little to no trust with the opposing party. Amy was also able to be empathetic to my children's needs so that we never lost sight of what was truly important. As a result, Amy helped me keep a clear mind and wade through the sea of accusations, emotional threats, and focus on what was actually at hand. She was able to see through the rhetoric from my ex-wife and her placating attorney. At the end, we were able to come up with an even split of assets, children's visitation rights, and brought in experts to separate the business. Amy's staff, headed by incomparable Sylvia. Her attentiveness to details made it certain we didn't miss deadlines, appointments, or any information that would potentially be needed. I would highly recommend Amy for all of your family practice needs. Again, thank you!

Hire Amy Robidas
Amy is down to earth and doesn't speak legalese. There's no BS or wasted time. She's engaged, to the point and listens, helping to take emotion out of the decision making process. Most importantly, she doesn't tell you what you want to hear, but rather how it is and what you need to hear. She was a true advocate and guide that helped me through a tough time to an acceptable outcome.

Proficient and practiced
The divorce process is inherently long, difficult and isolating. Divorce in the midst of a pandemic feels unremitting. Despite the need for all virtual operations, Amy was available, direct and knowledgeable. She was clear in both her explanation of the law as well as her advice in regards to my individual circumstance. Amy knew when to step up and when to step back. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone seeking a steady hand and skilled approach.
