Counsel on which you can count!!
Ms. Meisler and the rest of the attorneys handled my case with the utmost professionalism, respect, and efficiency. Her knowledge and legal wisdom are invaluable. I would absolutely trust her and the rest of the staff with any legal needs that may arise. I had many concerns and she put my mind at ease. Thanks again Ms. Meisler.

Extremely responsive and effective!
We had another attorney helping with a probation violation issue in county court, but after dragging his feet and becoming unresponsive we sought another attorney. AMS Law was recommended to me and wow was I amazed! They did in just about a week that the other attorney didn't get done in six months. Sharon was extremely responsive to my inquiry, did her research quickly, came back with a resolution and in DAYS everything was taken care of to our excitement! Will your case get resolved this quickly? I don' know, but you will not regret contacting AMS at all, but you will regret it if you don't. They were quick, professional, and effective. We are so thankful for their help!

Sharon helped change my life.
No matter how difficult I was to deal with my during my incarceration, Sharon never gave me up on me. She takes the time to get to know you and really works with you and makes it very easy to open up to her. She did everything she could to get me the best outcome and without her I don't think I would have been so lucky. I will forever be grateful for all she has done for me.

An Attorney Who Cares!!
You and your loved one are not just a dollar for Sharon and AMS Law. Sharon is committed to her clients, she will fight and work your case like it’s her only case. Every time I called she was available to take my call if not she would return my call as soon as she was free. There were times we would talk for close to an hour just to make sure I was comfortable with her defense strategy and most importantly that I understood the legal system. If I failed to mention something I would email and just like that a response would come through within 24 hours. Sharon checks emails on her vacation. Sharon is the real deal she is well knowledgeable in criminal defense, she will not stop until she gets the win. Hands down I would definitely recommend Sharon and AMS Law, they believe in justice for all. You have a team of lawyers who care and are ready to jump in to get you the justice you deserve. Sharon and AMS Law has become apart of our extended family because of Sharon expertise and fight for justice my Love one is coming home. If you want an attorney who’s well knowledgeable and have your best interest at hand contact Sharon and her team at AMS Law.
