Before falling in love with the law, Amy was a French teacher for grades 7-12. She loved helping her students understand the complexities and the beauty of the language, and was encouraged by their success. In 2009, Amy transitioned to working for a bankruptcy attorney and right away, she knew she had found her calling. While working as a bankruptcy paralegal and raising her two young children, she attended Seattle University School of Law, and earned her degree in 2014. She opened her own firm right away, eager to serve clients and guide them through the rocky waters of bankruptcy. In 2019, Amy and her children moved to the Toledo, Ohio area to be closer to family. In her free time, Amy enjoys attending her children's concerts and sports games, watching Mariners and Seahawks games, exercising, reading, and learning about her new Ohio home.

Very informative and helpful!
I hired Amy for a chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Amy took the time to explain the differences between chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcy and which one would be right for me. Amy was prompt in returning my phone calls and emails overall I am very pleased with her legal assistance.

Amy is great at keeping you informed during this confusing process. She is compassionate. The decision to file for bankruptcy is not an easy one. She streamlined the process for me. Would highly recommend and did.

Excellent Service
Amy toke over my case after two months of futile efforts with her predecessor. Amy listened very carefully and charted a course how to go about my case. She helped me with sound advice to stay the course when I was ready to give up after an initial set back. She clearly explained the possible outcome and at the end the outcome was exactly what she explained. Thank you Amy.

You're in good hands with Amy!
Amy came highly recommended from someone within the legal community. We came to Amy at month 56 of our 60 month plan, after our original attorney left us hopeless, facing a dismissal and being advise to file ANOTHER 5 year plan! Feeling desperate and defeated, Amy agreed to represent our mess of a case to the court, and she did so quickly and successfully. We will now receive a discharge at the end of a very long and hard 5 year journey. Amy is an expert in her field of practice. She is honest, compassionate and kept us well informed. Her hard work and dedication to our case changed our outcome and financial future for our family. We cannot thank Amy enough!

Genuine, Compassionate, and Communicative!
Amy resolved my BK conversion challenges very quickly and with informed legal expertise. Amy was genuine from the start and I felt like she really cared about what was going on. Amy jumped right in, communicated with me, made sure I felt supported, and then resolved the issues that I was dealing with in short order. Thank you so much, Amy!

Above and Beyond!
Amy, thank you for your prompt and professional follow up on my issue, having completed my chapter 13 with another attorney who has since retired, and needing some help,  I was apprehensive about getting any help. You've gone above and beyond!  Great example of how to run a business, and how to take care of all clients, past and present.

Amy helped me to get out of a timeshare contract.
I was anxious to get out of a time share contract and was desperately looking for help online. I found many companies that were specializing in that area but all wanted money upfront without any guarantees. I didn’t have any more money to pay and that was one of the main reasons that I needed to get out of my contract. After a long search for help and many phone conversations, I came across Amy and she immediately stood out. Amy wasn’t interested in my money upfront and was sincerely concerned about my situation. She took her time to give me her feedback on what was going on and where I was going with my situation. She gave me hope and inspiration; not only that, she adjusted her attorney fees to my financial situation. Amy doesn’t like injustice and it gets under her skin. She genuinely cares about people and was there for me at any time I needed her help. She spent a lot of her time without charging me. Thank you, Amy, for everything!

Amy is bright, compassionate & hard working!
I have known Amy for several years prior to her becoming an attorney when she was a paralegal. Amy was the smartest most compassionate paralegal I had run across so when I was facing garnishment of my wages I knew to reach out to Amy. I was facing a rapid deadline and Amy worked after hours to get the paperwork completely in a timely matter. Amy was able to answer all my questions and put my fears to ease. Amy is professional yet kind as well. She really cares about her clients and does not pass judgment whatsoever. I refer Amy to anyone I know that it is need of a bankruptcy attorney.

Bad communication
Months without answering calls to my incapacitated husband. She had him blocked from his cell phone. He promised to lower the Chapter 13 bankruptcy payment. He never did. Then he blamed goldfish's law firm. He then she moved to California and never oriented well. He doesn't follow instructions either.
