Satisfied Client
I couldn't be happier! I was recommended by a friend to see Fred Amos to help me resolve some issues that weren't being addressed by my previous lawyer and bring my case to a close. I brought to him a mess and, after quickly discerning the facts of the case, he has moved my case monumentally forward in just a few short weeks. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Fred works hard to understand your particular issues, communicates his plan to move forward, communicates effectively with the necessary parties, and keeps you informed of his progress. Divorce is tough enough; you need the right lawyer to help you navigate through the process. My only wish is that I had found him at the beginning instead of the end of my case. If you need a great divorce attorney, Fred Amos is the right one to help you.

Divorce
I used Fred's services to get a simple divorce. The process turned out to be a tad complicated as my now ex husband made himself untraceable. Fred and a process server handled this and were able to successfully serve and close this chapter on my behalf. I would recommend Fred and his firm for two reasons: (1) His firm was the only one that responded to my initial inquiry while I reached out to at least five firms. This demonstrated the respect for my time and got us on our way fairly quickly. I also appreciated that Fred's advice was to the point and no nonsense. (2) Apart from sending some emails and locating a process server, I didn't do any work. Fred handled it all and this made it a whole lot easier of a process since I've tried to do it on my own without an attorney. I'd definitely recommend Fred for divorce cases or to close real estate deals since we used him to purchase our home and will likely be using Fred's services in the future.

Excellent attorney
Fred did various services for me when I went through a divorce, and I found him to top notch as well as fairly priced. Would recommend him highly.

Awesome !
I met Fred and he was up front about everything from the first meeting. He also made sure that he kept expenses down while doing what he had to do for the case. One thing was that was important was that he took the time to go over the details with me and when needed he took the time to explain things to me in a logical manner. Over time he became a trusted friend as he went out of his way to make sure I was taken care of properly. Therefore, if you are ever looking for a good, honest, caring, and at times witty lawyer then you may want to talk to Fred. For actual details- he understood the law and when there were points made that were not supportable he was able to counter with force - he took a big picture view of my case and asked me several points that allowed him to serve me better- he was available at crazy hours when things needed to get done and never once cut me off short.

Outstanding Experience with Law Firm!
The Amos law firm experience was outstanding!! From a friendly, comfortable atmosphere when I arrived for the first consultation at the office, to a completed case within about a month. His knowledge of the law and professionalism far exceeded my expectation. The completion of my child's change of name has taken a very long time with no end in sight. Mr. Amos was able to find the missing person and complete the court requested petition so that the hearing could be set and the case completed.

Terrific Attorney!
Nobody wants to need an attorney, but when you need one, having Fred Amos as yours will definitely help you. First of all, he worked with me to allow me to pay him over time because I didn't have any money for an attorney when the need arose. His experience in the court system and his knowledge with respect to who is who helped me understand my chances all the way along. Finally, it was clear to me that his interactions with the ADA and police officer for my case were very respectful and it showed in how they responded to him. I would hire him again if I ever fall into trouble (which I hope I don't) :)

Fred Amos
Fred Amos is a great guy. I was charged with a dwi and underage consumption. He got me out of the dwi and only charged for the underage. I was ecstatic about that result. I was glad I hired him and if I ever needed help again he would be the one I'd call. I recommend him to everyone because he will do whatever he can to get the best outcome for you.At first I didn't know what my best route was with my case but he definitely helped me figure it out.

Review of Fred B. Amos
I knew that Fred Amos was the attorney for me when I was first greeted by him, and his wonderful "office assistant", ' Chance'. I retained Fred Amos to represent me on a DWI charge; a possible Level 2 offense. Fred has always been available, ethical, and candid in his dealings with me. Fred is well-versed in the law, and is patient with, and informative to, me, a lay-person. Fred Amos shows himself to be, in my experience, a good and competent attorney, and a good, and decent man. I feel privileged to have Fred Amos as my attorney, and would recommend him, wholeheartedly, to anyone desiring legal representation .

Prompt, direct and informative. Thoughtful follow up points.
Prompt response, direct and informative. Thoughtful follow up point to say where beneficiary source was from (life insurance, pension, bank account, etc.). Or whether one was designated before person died.

Poor Service & Overcharges
Both he and his wife work together, our company had 1x transaction with his wife that went fine. However, he represented our firm in small claims court. He was unresponsive to phone/email, unprepared for meetings-we had to consistently reproduce already provided documents and a slew of other annoying items. The biggest problem was that when it came time to send us a bill after the case closed he attempted to charge us a rate 125% higher than previously used with no notification and no prior estimate. When asked why the different rate his only response was he and his wife charge differently. We ended up paying the $120/hour rate and lower hours only after getting the NCBAR involved. Would suggest getting everything in writing from them before contracting to represent you.

Response from Fred Amos November 17, 2015
What Steve fails to state is that I won his case and got him a significant money judgment against the other party. He also fails to state that I only billed him at my standard hourly rate as listed on my website. However, he was upset that I did not give him the same discount that my wife gave him for previous work which involved only the drafting of a document. I do not offer a discount for litigation. We all know what they say about assumptions. Finally, Steve implies that it was he that got the NC Bar involved, which is not true. It was I that informed him of the NC Bar's fee dispute resolution program. Finally, while he is free to change his mind in retrospect, Steve told the NC Bar fee dispute mediator that he had no issue with the service I provided but simply expected his bill to be lower.
