Chapter 7 bankruptcy Attorney | Dec 21

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Apr 03

"Amy is a tireless advocate for her clients. She combines a thorough knowledge of bankruptcy and debt collection law with an imaginative approach to solving her clients' problems. I endorse Amy without hesitation."
Foreclosure Attorney | Mar 31
Relationship: Family member
"You will not find a more empathetic advocate than Amy Good. But it probably isn't hard to find empathy among recent law school graduates (you know, lawyers filled with idealism who have not yet been hardened by the realities of legal practice). What sets Amy apart is her follow-through. I have never seen anyone better with the details of assembling a client's case and of doing the hard-work of tickling the file without ever dropping the ball. She also has a heart for service, something for which our local legal community is thankful, particularly with her extensive history of pro bono advocacy and most recently, with her involvement in Berks County's foreclosure diversion program."
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Feb 15

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Mar 02

"Ms. Good-Ashman is a well-respected attorney in the consumer rights community. She is known to always assist other attorneys and members of the public on complex areas of consumer law.
