The best attorney a guy could have!
I have several pieces of advice... First, and foremost, don't get an exwife. Second - get a prenup. Third, if you didn't take my advice on the first two (I didn't) & find yourself searching for an atty - reading this trying to determine who to choose - get Andrea (I did). She can't fix your stupidity (or the consequences that follow) but is excellent in taking your case / situation & getting the best possible outcome "given the circumstances..." I say "given the circumstances" STRONGLY because there's only so much any one person can do given the circumstances, legal precedent, judge, etc... I can't imagine a higher level of service or a more knowledgeable attorney who serves their client better than she did with me. Billing is reasonable, fair, honest, & upfront. I hired Andrea for her advice & guidance - not for me to tell her what to do - which is a different approach than some people take. Use her wisely, & you'll be thankful you did... I won't be getting a divorce again (you can't get a divorce if you don't get married :) ), but will 100% recommend her to anyone needing her help!

Honest, trustworthy, and excellent
Andrea was my divorce attorney years ago. I didn’t realize how skilled she was until I had to deal with other attorneys. She is specific and concise. She doesn’t do the bare minimum. She goes above and beyond most lawyers in this area. Plus, free consultation, and her retainer policy is more than fair.

Excellent Attorney
Highly recommend Andrea Sipes. She was totally responsive to all my questions and concerns! Promptly returned phone calls and very supportive through my difficult divorce. Billing was fair and accurate. Always prepared thoroughly and well organized for court.

Tells it like it is
I have had her for a year and she had accomplished more things in that time than my past attorney Hopson whom I've had for 3yrs+ prior to meeting Andrea. Straight forward and with no nonsense tolerated.

Awesome
I've hired her for multiple cases so far and it has always had a great outcome! No regrets. I recommend her to everyone I know.

Efficient, Smart, and helpful!
Andrea is handling a custody case for me. She is no nonsense. Let's me know upfront what the law is and what can expect each and every step during this horrible process. He staff is also very courteous and helpful. I don't want to work with a lawyer every again. But if the need arose I would hire Andrea Lester again!
Posted by Chris | July 15, 2014
Outstanding! Andrea is an excellent attorney and will provide superb representation.
From the beginning, I knew I was lucky to have Andrea defending me. She is very upfront regarding the situation. She thoroughly explained the charges and possible outcomes. However, it was evident from the start that she is here to defend my best interests and did nothing less but fully dedicate her services with all her ability to achieve a favorable outcome by successfully illustrating my side of the story. Andrea displayed unconditional professionalism while also showing me compassion and understanding of my fear and anxiety caused by my dilemma. I am extremely pleased with the representation and compassion Andrea provided through this difficult time.

Andrea Lester is a wonderful attorney!
I hired here for a divorce case, she has been quick to respond and explained the process every step of the way. She is knowledgeable about the law and has let me know what to expect. She has taken the time to be available when I've needed her for help in this difficult situation.

Knows the laws
I hired Ms. Sipes in my mind the day of the consultation. She was straightforward and to the point about what could happen with my case and did not sugar coat. I appreciate her honesty and her support.
Posted by K | May 16, 2014
Fair and honest
She was exceptionally fair in her billing procedures. My legal fees were expensive but competitive. I never felt that I was being overcharged or that the bill was padded with unnecessary activities. She made her billing policies clear to me prior to taking my case. I feel she did work toward my best interest but she was brutally realistic about possible netative outcomes for the case. She offered no false sense of unrealistic results. So...though my case was resolved less favorably than I had hoped for, I was not unprepared and realize the outcome was due to certain facts of the case. I would use her again.

Client
She pretty much took my money and sit back and did nothing to help me with my divorce. I thought she was a very highly respected lawyer, but I was wrong. She never would call me back or answer any of my questions. This shouldnt be allowed when you pay people and trust them.
