Amy is amazing! Legal matters can be very scary for some. Amy, however, put me at ease and boosted my confidence in the outcome of my case being the best thing for parties involved. She took the time to hear me out and understand where I was coming from, but she didn't sugarcoat anything or tell me what I wanted to hear just to win my business. In fact, her candor is what won my trust and I'm so glad I put my trust in her. She delivered! I counted on her and she did not fail me. Amy will always be my go to. I have complete confidence in her and highly recommend her.

Contested Divorce
Ms Amy Slayden and Sarah Meigs represented me during my contested divorce and ran circles around the other attorney. This awesome team was able to get my case settled without even having to go to court. They had my case taken care of during mediation and never had to see a judge or courtroom. I was beyond amazed at the way they represented me and ensured that my wants, needs and concerns were taken care of. I would highly recommend these ladies for any family law matter. If you are needing an attorney for Family Law and do not make this office your first call, you will be making a very big mistake. Thanks again to my attorneys!!

Excellent Law Firm
My family worked with Sarah Meigs an Attorney with Amy Slayden Family Law, we were extremely happy with Sarah's experience and knowledge. She helped us get a custody battle dismissed and communicated with us over weekend and evenings, and did what it took to get the job done. We are extremely grateful to her and I would recommend her service to anyone needing help.

Dominated my Wife's Lawyer
I hired Amy to represent me in a contested divorce with custody. She was able to argue my case in court in front of a female judge and legally outmaneuver my wife's lawyer. No shenanigans, no stunts, just good, solid legal execution. My wife attempted to bring me in for contempt of court, again Amy stepped in and protected my interests. Hire her again without a second thought. If you're a father trying to get a fare shake in the Alabama courts, you can do no better than Amy.

Absolutely the Best!
My family can never thank Amy enough for what she has done for us over the years. She has followed our case and been with us every step of the way. Child custody cases are always emotional, but Amy kept my son safe and we can never thank her enough for that. She always gave us straight forward advice, told us the good or the bad, and was there for us every step of the way. She was compassionate and understanding with us and especially with our son. I have never seen another lawyer so confident and prepared in a court room. She is absolutely amazing. We owe her so much and would highly recommend her to anyone dealing with child custody issues.

Amy was able to, very quickly, after 6 years, previous attorneys, mishandled court fileings, and being the man who's case, "slipped through the cracks" , allow me to get a proper visitation order filed in court. She was tough, fair and very well prepared for my case. Thanks again Amy.

I received a referral to Amy Slayden from an elected official who had recently become a friend. I hired her for post divorce litigation after a non-so-great divorce settlement filed with another attorney in town several years prior. I wished I had hired her for my initial divorce! I have retained her now four times for post divorce litigation. She is tough, smart, and cares about her clients. My ex-husband keeps changing attorneys to try to match her level of expertise, but thus far has not come close.
