Amy S. Loper joined The Family Law Practice of Leslie S. Arzt, LLC, in December 2017.  Attorney Loper’s experience has trained her to listen closely to client’s needs and wishes to allow her to provide them with quality legal advice that meets their specific circumstances.

Prior to joining The Family Law Practice of Leslie S. Arzt, Attorney Loper was an associate attorney with a general practice law firm in Hanover, Pennsylvania where she gained experience not only in family law matters but also in estate planning, estate administration, probate, employment law, business law, and criminal defense.  While there she was assistant general counsel for a successful Hanover business. 

Before entering private practice, Amy spent over five years with the York County District Attorney’s Office where she was the Senior Deputy Prosecutor for the Special Case Unit, which focused on child abuse and sexual assault cases.  During Amy’s time at the York County District Attorney’s Office, Amy gained courtroom knowledge and experience, tried misdemeanor and felony cases in front of juries and judges, argued motions before judges, drafted appeal briefs, and qualified minors as credible witnesses. 

Amy attended Susquehanna University where she graduated cum laude in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a minor in Sociology.  In 2007 she received a Juris Doctorate from Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Attorney Loper then moved to York County where she has resided ever since and has become familiar with both the York and Adams county legal communities. 

Amy is admitted to practice law before the Courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Federal District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.  She is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the York County Bar Association.

Attorney Loper remains committed to helping children who have been victims of abuse and has been an active board member of the York County Children’s Advocacy center since 2014, where she currently serves as the board President.

Kind, Compassionate, Fighter for you in York County
I brought a very complex divorce and custody case to Attorneys Loper and Arzt (reviewed separately). They are a team and Attorney Loper handles custody. Without out getting into the messy details, my case was tragic and involved my spouse attempting to remove me entirely from my sons' lives. Attorney Loper had to navigate through an opposing counsel that supported my spouse in, what I would consider to be, less-than-ethical tactics to gain financial and legal advantages. Through all of this, Attorney Loper remained calm, competent and driven to both protect me and fight for my family. Her performance has thus far been spectacular. She has managed to navigate this complex case while finding victories for me whenever possible. While the case remains open, my divorce is now finalized and she played an integral part in that process as well. I am very pleased with her work. She is unbelievably responsive, which is really so important when you are dealing with such matters. Her invoicing is fair and reasonable. Her paralegal staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Most notably, her heart for my children is so obvious. She has experience in the District Attorney's office and has seen so much. You can tell that matters involving family are important to her because she has a passion for the most vulnerable in any divorce, the children. I cannot say enough about how highly regarded her name and reputation are amongst the York County legal and judicial communities. Again, the value of this cannot be overstated. If you are looking for compassionate, intelligent and hard-fighting representation, Attorney Loper is who you should contact. Thank you, Amy.

Invests her heart in your case
I wanted to write an unbiased review of Amy prior to any big legal proceedings. Upon meeting Amy she was friendly although bold and thorough. Since hiring her for such an important case, she has continued to impress me. She isn't just about taking your money and giving you subpar service. Amy is prompt in her responses, spends time devoted to your case making sure she's not only prepared but understands and accommodates your needs. Ive seen her a few times since consultation and she has a great big heart especially for children. If you need a lawyer who is attentive and will do her job then I recommend Amy Loper. Every time Im upsets she assures me we will be ok and you find comfort in her confidence in her abilities. Her personality makes you so comfortable, its like your talking to a loved one. I haven't seen her litigate just yet but I have high hopes that her sweet innocent face with a unique set of eyes is merely a distraction for what she's truly capable of. Im excited to see her at work. For the first time I found a lawyer that I feel is really here to help me when Ive felt nothing but helpless. I would hire her again and again regardless of court outcome.
