Top Notch Attorney!!!
Amber recently represented me in a criminal assault case and I have to say her representation was impeccable. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and knowledge of the law is second to none. She took the charges and accusations against me head on and left no stone unturned in bringing out the truth in my case resulting in a not guilty verdict. To see Amber in action during the trial was truly amazing. She was thoroughly prepared, and fought aggressively for a favorable outcome in my case. I highly recommend Amber to anyone who is looking for an attorney who will aggressively and thoroughly represent you in your case.

Fabulous Attorney
I approached Amber with a challenging case that involved divorce proceedings going to trial. Amber was able to successfully negotiate on my behalf, and was completely professional in her honesty about my best options. Amber stands for morals, values, and ethics- you want her representing you, trust me. I hope to remain a long time client of hers.

Caring, Confident, and Skilled
Amber was very clear when I first met her. Her clarity and always there to answer questions through my process kept me on task to have a successful probation, and Good. ending to my case. She sent a closing letter to summarize everything I needed to remember and know after my case was through. Her kind manner made this difficult process much better. Her communication with me through the process was prompt and clear. She's made for this business and it shows!

Best Choice
I was going through divorce back in 2014. Amber took the time to listen to everything I had to say. She helped me understand aspects I had not thought of. She also helped me to be sure that I was awarded what I deserved. She was very concise when explaining things to me and all parties involved. She was respectful, attentive, and not afraid to be the dragon slayer. I ended with 50% of all that we owned and was very happy with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend Amber.

Good outcome in custody fight.
We had a situation where the Mother withheld contact from the Father. Amber helped in giving voice to our concerns with the Mother's criminal record, bizarre augmentative behavior and association with recent violent felons. In the end, with Amber's help, the Father did obtain primary residence for the good of the child.

There are two types of legal representation. The good and the bad. Amber is the definition of good. Intelligent and cunning, if you are in need of a lawyer who achieves excellence this is the one. I would recommend Amber to anyone who is looking for an attorney or is unsure of their own.

A great choice
I used Amber through Prepaid Legal (referral). We had to make changes to a divorce decree/custody arrangement. She was very helpful and professional. I enjoyed working with her and trusted her to take good care of me.
