Past client Hyatt
Aimee is the best lawyer I've ever had contact with. Married three times with bad custody battle twice. She really is wonderful and NOT money grubbing and greedy. Once she even gave me advice without a charge. I truly admire her as a person and as a professional. If I'm ever back in her state and have a need she is the only lawyer I'd ever consider. I miss her, she's very refreshing in today's world of mostly greedy over- rated over-paid attorneys that are heartless.... she is a gem with a great big heart.

Amazing Lawyer!
Aimee Cain has gone above and beyond any and all expectations I could have had. Her knowledge and expertise was precisely what I needed. Her staff was very friendly and helpful not to mention timely. Aimee is proof there are still people in this world actually doing what God created them to do!!!

Amazing Lawyer
I met with Ms. Cain in Feb 2022, for consult on child custody, from the moment she walked in she was not only dn to earth, but straight to the task in hand , on what it was we were looking for in our case. She was straight forward, never sugarcoating, so I knew what to expect each and every time. She was professional at all times returned my emails , calls and made us feel comfortable and that she truly cared. I would highly recommend her and I will definitely use her again if ever needed.

Personable and caring
Aimee was great! From the first time I went into her office she was very down to earth and straight forward. She took good notes throughout the whole process was as excited as me to procend with the divorce case. During the mediation I started to get money hungry (hoping to get the absolute most from my ex) Aimee actually advised me against it. She noted that it may not be beneficial and her job is to help me, not to take my money. Attorneys tend to get a bad reputation for just wanting to take your money, Aimee didn't make me feel that way. Thanks again Aimee!

Amazing
Aimee is an amazing attorney! She works late nights and is responsive to email. She is available even when she is traveling! Aimee took my case very seriously. I feel the advice she gave me was within reason. Before court she spent lots of time to help prep me for my testimony. I feel like Aimee genuinely cared about the outcome of my case. I would recommend her to anyone!

AGRESSIVE AND COMPASSIONATE
I had a great experience with Aimee. Fantastic lawyer!! She always called me back promptly and even called me from Egypt when she was on vacation when I sent her an email asking that she contact me ASAP. I had no idea she was half way around the globe. LOL!! She worked with me to prepare my testimony and was sooo on top of it at trial. I feel lucky to have found her. I think my ex wishes that they had found her first :)

Phenomal and dedicated
Aimee Cain is not just a lawyer, she is a genuine, whole hearted individual that TRULY cares about her client. I currently have Aimee as my attorney and without her I don't know where I would be with my case. She makes sure you are clear on every single motion filed or motion needing to be filed. I personally have multiple kids that are a part of this very contentious divorce and the support and empathy that Aimee has provided is more than I ever imagined receiving during this time in my life. Whether late at night or during recess of another trial she WILL get back with you and spend as much time answering your questions. Now let's discuss trust, this is not something that comes easily from attorneys. I have had several court dates where she has asked that I trust her judgement and I am always pleased. Her pristine office and staff complete the package. I would highly recommend her whether a simple or nasty divorce. She is very reasonable and not out to break anyone, rather use your funds wisely while keeping your best interests in mind.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Aimee for my custody case. It was complicated and long but I got primiary custody of my three children and that is so hard to get for a father. Aimee fought for me hard. She stayed in touch with me and even called me from home. I recommend her highly. Do not hire anyone else in Cabarrus County

Highly recommend!
Aimee is a great attorney and a wonderful person. She was very approachable and welcoming to me however after seeing her in court, I am definitely grateful she was on my "side". With Aimee's help I was able to terminate the rights of my daughter's biological father paving the way for my fiance to be able to adopt her. Aimee took the time, many times, to speak with me and calm my nerves regarding my case. I am so grateful to Aimee for helping me give my daughter the best future possible.

The BEST of the best!
Aimee is not only a great attorney shes an amazing person as well. She has put her whole heart into our case. Her and her staff have been amazing and so helpful in every way. We are not done with this case its still ongoing but I have 100% trust in her and so does my whole family. Our case is very different and is complicated bc I had not hired her to begin with and the other attorney made a mess of the case but Aimee is fighting tooth & nail to fix it. My children absolutely adore her. She for sure puts her all into every case and you will not be disappointed with her!

Not in it just for the $$$$
I called Aimee Cain concerning a non-biological child we had custody of. After several DNA tests, the bio father was identified. She spoke with me over the phone for approximately 45 minutes answering all of my questions and giving me some excellent advice! She had never met me nor received a dime from me when she took the time to help me that day. Her advice proved priceless in the following months. I can't thank her enough for how she helped me without even being a client.

If you want to win your custody case- Hire Aimee
If you want to win your custody case hire Aimee Cain. She and her staff worked so hard for me I can never thank them enough. Victoria and Kimberly kept me informed and Aimee was right there to answer questions and give support even beyond legal advice. LOVE THIS FIRM!

That's crap
That last review is BS. I know and have had several cases with Aimee and know that she is a sole practitioner in a small southern town. No way she EVER got a $25,000 retainer. I also know she is not a blackberry girl. She had a Droid but now has an iPhone. I have never known her to show up without being completely prepared for mediation, trial or a settlement conference. I suspect this review was from a competing lawyer and not from a client. Shame on you whoever you are for playing so dirty.

Fantastic Experience-Couldn't be happier
When I was looking for a lawyer, I was nervous and apprehensive because of what was at stake. Two different people recemmended Aimee Cain so I felt like I should give her a try. I couldn't have been more pleased. I got the result I wanted and for much less than I expected. I highly recommend her.

Worth it if you can afford it
I consulted her about my child support and custody agreement with an out-of-state father. She was able to advise me of my rights and responsibilities and was also able to answer questions about aspects of my situation not related to the child support or custody case. Due to the father's military deployment, I had to put off going to court, but I am saving up some money so that I can go back to Ms. Cain in the future. At the time her retainer fee for my case was $2000 and she advised me that depending on whether or not the father made it difficult and then caused the case to be drawn out over a length of time the cost could possibly go up. She even called me weeks after our consult to check in on me and make sure everything was still okay for my child and I. She was very understanding of my situation but also seemed like she would be a tiger in court.

LIAR and Total Ripoff
Totally incompetent and incapable of doing what you pay her thousands of dollars to do. Never returns phone calls and when I call her office, she is never there. I am constantly told to contact her by email but she never answers those either. She took my money and did nothing but agree to continuances for almost a year and then told me if I didn't pay her more money she would withdraw as my attorney and I could start over. She shouldn't be allowed to be an attorney and take someones hard earned money and do nothing for them. Never hire this fake!

Don't waste your time or money!
Aimee took almost $4,000 up front for a custody case. I never went to court. She actually went to the child support hearing without telling me and I ended up paying thousands of dollars in arrears that weren't even owed. She made up numbers for my income. She never even knew who I was when I asked to speak with her. She does not return calls. EVER. She told me I had $700 in my account and when I tried to get it back, she changed her story to my case being a "fixed" rate. Please save your money for an organized compasionate lawyer.

You are Just a Dollar Sign
I regret hiring her and the same things happened to me that happened to the previous two posters. She took my money in September 2014 and my case did not go to trial until September 2015. I understand the legal system takes time... a lot of time. But when I was at trial that day she did not even know who I was because she had not seen or spoken to me in a YEAR (I had to wave her down and she then told me she did not remember what I looked like. This is NOT something you should tell your client). The only person I ever spoke to was Victoria (the secretary/assistant). The attorney's team made errors on the documents and my case almost got dismissed. You will never speak to the actual attorney you paid for unless you go to court and she has to be present (and she may not remember who you are). We won my case and she fell off the map completely after that and I never got compensated, so I called their office and nobody would ever return a call. Then the attorney could not even call me back, the receptionist called and told me that my case is closed (uh, what??) there is nothing they can do for me. After almost 2 years and a bunch of disappointment I now have to "hire another lawyer" (their words) or try to figure this out myself. I definitely do NOT recommend this lawyer unless you want to waste a lot of time, money, never get told what is happening with your case, and never even speak to or see her and get treated like you are just a dollar sign.

Slow and unprepared
I actually hired Aimee for a custody case in which I was trying to obtain full custody instead of joint that was in place. Paperwork took forever to be written and filed and served. When that finally happened, I kept asking and asking when she would get us into court. It dragged on for months and months for seemingly no reason. I know courts are slow but there seemed to be no attempts to get a court date. All of a sudden, she started speaking to the attorney on the opposing side and trying to strike a deal with him and my ex without my consent. I wanted to get into court. She kept saying that settling out of court was faster and would be better but my gut told me we needed to be in front of a judge. Aimee sent me custody proposals from my ex's attorney via email and kept encouraging me to take them. Each one had another and another concession on my end until finally the custody was so convoluted and far from my original goal that I gave up. I had payed her so much that I didn't have money left to hire another attorney to take over. To be clear, when I first consulted with her she said I would have no problem getting sole custody. I am not a drug abuser, not a child abuser, have no criminal record at all, not even speeding tickets!! I am a great mom now and was when I hired Aimee. Before I paid her she convinced me we would have no problem in court or with custody. After I paid, she was lazy and I guess decided court was not her desire. Never mind what her client wants! I was highly disappointed and walked away broke and lost miserably. I am writing this now (a couple years after I hired her) because in those years I found a great attorney who gladly took my case and got me my kids back! So I know it was possible and I just hired the wrong person. It's way too bad my kids had to go through two more years of a bad situation with their dad while I saved the money to hire another attorney and properly get the case handled the way it SHOULD have been with Aimee. Beware of any attorney who promises you your cake and to eat it too. In retrospect, I would have asked her to be honest with me about how hard she planned to work and what she thought the worst outcome could be. Not just assume that she would have my interests as a priority only to let me down in the end. After all, custody cases involve the lives of innocent children. They are not just business deals. Aimee is nice and funny and very pretty but I was blinded by all that and got taken.

Would not recommend
I consulted with Aimee and went over in detail all issues I was having pertaining to my custody order. I was wanting to file a Motion for Contempt. We discussed all options and what i would need to do to present sufficient evidence in court. We also went over options for filing for modification of support. I paid the consultation fee, she took detailed notes of my issues, copied my paperwork, and qouted me costs for the contempt and modification of support. I was working on gathering information and evidence for my case, and also trying to come up with the fees to retain her. A couple of months after the consultation I received a letter from Aimee's office. Initially I thought it might be a follow up letter. When I opened it, it was a court summons and she was representing the opposing party. I then had no choice but to consult with another attorney, pay the fee to consult, then retain them. I am not sure if Aimee failed to realize she had consulted with me prior to the opposing party, but her lack of ethics and organization in this matter was unexcusable.
