Mediation for Divorce
I would like to just express my gratitude and huge thanks for everything Amber did for my wife, my two kids, and me. My wife had been extremely adamant prior to mediation that 50/50 was not going to happen and it wasn't in the best interest of the children. She had spoken to me multiple times how it would not end well if I took her to court over this issue. However, Amber was able to help speak to her in a manner which changed her mind. I am still in awe of how everything turned out. I am so thankful (and even that word doesn't express it enough) that my wife and I were blessed by God to have Amber as our mediator! She helped to provide my family with a very positive and happy future in a unfortunate situation. From the bottom of my heart thank you for helping me to be the most present father I can be for my children! I just can't say thank enough, for how Amber was able to help my family. She was a professional and at the same time showed compassion and empathy toward me and my wife during this difficult day of mediation. She helped my wife and I both compromise to find agreeable solutions when it was necessary for us to compromise.

She's the best!
I was referred to Amber through a family member who had recently gotten divorced. I had called about 5 or 6 other attourneys and I didn't really find one that I "clicked" with. I set up a consultation with Amber and I knew instantly she was who I wanted representing me with my divorce. She was so personable yet professional. She took the time to help break down the process for me and even give me some resources to do my own research. She made the whole process as pleasant as it possibly could be! She communicated clearly- I was always aware of where we were at in the process and I always knew what she needed from me and when she needed it. She was easy to get in contact with and always got back to me in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an honest, reliable, family/divorce attorney

Outstanding!
I was referred to Amber because of her knowledge in family law/mediation. From my first consultation she explained my options and walked me through the 'typical' process. Amber, presented my options in a manner that allowed me to make an informed decision of how to proceed. Amber, was very thorough, would check in and reassured me that no matter the decision I made she's got it handled. I highly recommend Amber! Her service, knowledge and professionalism are beyond expectations!

More than happy!
I hired Amber because she is well known for her knowledge of Police and Fire pension/work situations. From our first meeting she was straightforward with me about my custody situation and realistic expectations of its outcome. However, she also listened to what I had to say and took to heart the fight I was willing to pursue for my child. Through the entire process I continuously felt that Amber had my best interests in mind. Even at times when my emotions ran high I knew that Amber's guidance helped me to stay focused and to think strategically about my case. She returned phone calls and emails promptly and was always extremely professional. She allowed me to assist with certain aspects of my case that helped me feel powerful instead of powerless. Amber recently handled a contempt hearing for my case that resulted in a favorable outcome. She is always well prepared and fights as hard each time as if my case is her most important case. I have a great appreciation for her "bulldog" courtroom personality and a fondness for her caring and kind heart. I plan on using Amber again should I need further assistance with my case because I trust her ability to defend me and my child.

OUTSTANDING CARING LAWYER
Amber was very kind, understanding, and passionate as well as extremely prepared and had the response we desperately needed from the judge in a matter of minutes at our hearing. Highly recommend Amber to anyone who is looking for a lawyer who cares!

Incredible Lawyer. Highly recommend
Stop searching for an attorney you can trust and count on. Amber Boles is your attorney. She is incredibly responsive, always willing to listen to your concerns and has a very caring heart. We were at our last hope in trying to get a two year case resolved. After spending thousands and thousands of dollars with another attorney and getting no where, Amber took on our case with such passion that she was able to get more accomplished in 45 days than our old attorney did in two years. She is someone who in my opinion doesn't see you as a revenue stream, but one who wants justice served for her clients. She studied hard to know our case and spent countless hours getting ready for trial. She represented us so well in court. Amber is inspiring to be around and candidly one of the smartest individuals I have the chance to be around. I highly recommend you hire Amber Boles. She is top notch in our book. An outstanding lawyer.

I highly recommend Amber Boles. Amazing!
Words cannot explain what an amazing human being Amber is. She went above and beyond to help me in a very ugly custody battle. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. When you're in court cases that have your children's safety at risk, you want the best. And Amber Boles is the best!

Effective, Compassionate, and Knowledgeable!
I hired Amber to assist me with my divorce. My ex-husband is self-employed and was trying to evade alimony and child support payments. Amber was very aggressive in uncovering his income. She left no stone unturned, and did not waste time in moving my case forward. She was extremely knowledgeable about the law and was very familiar with our judge. At trial she presented the evidence and facts in a clear, professional manner. She was very organized, and aggressive. Most of all she really cared about me. She far exceeded my expectations. She was the second attorney I had on my case, and by far the best! Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

Amber is great!
Amber is wonderful! After a two year long, failed custody battle with another attorney, we hired Amber. Amber had the case resolved in about 5 months with mediation and we got everything we wanted! Amber knows family law so well, it made the process easy and comfortable! We highly recommend her!

Family Law
Amber handled my divorce extraordinarily well. she was able to take my case that was two years old, settled it in three months! Amber cares what her clients needs are and fought for every thing i needed. Me and my kids are grateful for the equal time i get with the children.

Saved my family
My exwife wanted to move away with my kids to a different state after marrying someone she met online. outrageuos! I felt like I was going to lose my family and my ex was determined to move. A friend recommended speaking with Mrs. Boles and seeing if she could help me. Mrs. Boles worked hard and provided the research and evidence needed to make my case. My exs attorney looked stunned when Mrs. Boles used her knowledge to outwit the other guy and win my case and keep my girls with me in the only home they've known. I cant thank her enough. I highly recommend!

Excellent Service
I knew that I was going to hire Amber right after out first phone call. I had spoken with two other attorney's prior to meeting Amber. Amber was empathetic towards my situation and displayed a high level of knowledge about family law. Amber handled my case in a professional and timely manor. Amber does something most practices do not do and that is take care of the client. The e-mail correspondence was more than convienet and I was always kept up to date on changes concerning my case. If you are looking for someone who will work for your best interests then I highly recommend Amber Boles.

Amber = Help
I knew Amber was the right attorney for me when my friend, and his ex wife both recomended her to me. I spent 2 years and more money than I care to think about and was starting over when I called Amber. Within a few months we sat with a mediator and had an amicable agreement. She is a true professional and loves her work. She cares about her clients and they in turn care about her. Hard work and heart will carry Amber to the top of her field. Its a true pleasure to call her a friend.

Amber treated me like family!
The first time I met with Amber I felt like I was sitting down with a good friend. She was so easy to talk to and I knew she really cared about my feelings. The whole divorce process went incredibly smooth and Amber was ahead of the game at each step. She fought for what she knew I deserved and I got everything I wanted in the end. I was so relieved to find someone I could trust at such an vulnerable time in my life and through it all Amber was there for me in more ways than I could have ever imagined. I can never thank her enough and I highly recommend Amber to get you though this difficult time in your life.

A great Family Law attorney
Amber was referred to me after I had two previous attorneys handling matters concerning my divorce, and I can say that she will be the last attorney I work with as I am confident she will remain my attorney should I ever need one in the future. She is extremely knowledgeable in family law. I would say her greatest asset is that she kept me informed every step of the process and kept in constant contact with me, even if just to check in to let me know she didn't forget about me. Even though we just met, I felt like she began to work for me and my children as though we were her own family. She is incredibly personable and easy to talk to with. I felt a sense of comfort with her, and it was easy to open up about things that aren't easy to talk about. I have already recommended her to friends, and will continue to do so. I believe she went above and beyond what I expected her to do based on my previous attorneys, and know that she is a dedicated, hard working attorney! She resolved all my outstanding matters and helped my ex-husband and I reach an amicable decision about timesharing, schooling, and support. She also helped me mend my relationship with my now ex-husband, which I can honestly say I never thought would happen. She helped me to learn how to be friends with him, so that we may co-parent for our children's sake; for that I will be eternally grateful. An attorney is also called a "counselor" for a reason, especially in Amber's case! Not only did she handle my legal affairs, she was there for me in time of crisis. So, if you are considering an attorney, please call Amber for a consultation. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

I would like to know who reviewed her a 5 besides her partner
Ms Boles and Mr Phipps participate in practices to help their personal careers rather than watching for the interests of the child or family involved. My life will never be the same after these disastrous lawyers got my case. Buyer beware. I know that Ms. Boles is definitely not a 10/10 lawyer and is unethical in practice. Do not hire. Today she says she's a Mediator and Collaborative lawyer. She told me she is a litigator. Never stepped foot in the courtroom that I hired her for.
