    Step-parent adoptions are one of the most wonderful aspects of Family Law. If you have a child and that child's biological parent is not in his or her life and your new spouse is fulfilling that role, a step-parent adoption can truly make an incredible difference in your and your child's life.

A long term client of Tami's
Tami was responsive, professional, kind and effective. It was a pleasure working with her. My husband and I always knew what was happening and the choice was ours as to how to move forward. She gave us advice and scenarios and professionally guided our decisions. We were treated as the smart professionals we are--who don't know anything about law. Tami was also very empathetic and fought for us as a true advocate. Tami is great. One or both of us has used Tami for a variety of issues for over 10 years.

Client
After being with several attorneys, Tami came into my life. She is the best thing that came into my life during a long dramatic divorce. She always had time to listen, even at on the week ends or at night. Her professionalism along with her caring attitude went above and beyond what I expected. When I had a question she spoke and gave advise with the childrens best welfare in mind. The well being of my children was at the fore front of her concern. She came into my life when I needed her the most. Without any reservation I recommend Tami without any reservation. She is caring, always gave me information and advise without prejudice. Well respected and caring . I highly recommend her to anybody with a family dispute.

Caring, Compassionate and HONEST
Ms. Augen was the best attorney I have ever had an experience with. She was extremely professional, caring and honest. She was open about my options throughout litigation and was a very calming source for me during a difficult time. Anyone looking for a family lawyer should hire Ms. Augen.

Person you can trust!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Tami since 2003 where she handled a legal dispute I was involved in, Dog bite vs young teen trespassing. She cleared up the initial quagmire and in a very professional style limited the damages and helped keep my sanity. Since then I have used her expertise and followed her advise many times, she is always willing to help and guide her former clients and she always returns phone calls promptly. I have recommended Tami to many colleagues and friends and they have had rave reviews about her legal knowledge! I highly recommend Tami Augen to for all your legal matters, if she cannot handle your case or answer your question she knows exactly who to direct you to. Thank you Tami, I truly appreciate your sincerity and legal talent!

Highly Recommend
Tami took a difficult child custody situation and made it simple and easy for all parties. She is very organized, has an eye for details, has been extremely prompt with getting back to me (as early as 7:15am) and keeping me up to date with my case and her rates are more than reasonable. I would highly recommend her!

Excellent
She is someone you want by your side. She took over for another lawyer and moved my case forward when he wouldn't. She kept me informed and made me feel comfortable through tout this process. I am very greatful to gave her in my corner.
Posted by Zeus | September 18, 2013
Great job!
Tammy did a great job despite getting a crappy judge. She was thorough and supportive during the whole ordeal. She has trial experience which most lawyers do not. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to be represented by someone who cares about the people she defends.

Her answers are based upon the facts presented and no doubt lead the person asking for help in the right direction. Given the the time and effort Tami devotes to helping people coming to this Avvo, I can easily endorse her as an attorney."
