Amazing
Amanda and her team were incredible. Despite my many questions they were always quick to respond and very polite with a professional manner. She is straight forward and honest having my best interest in mind at all times. Couldn’t be more thankful for her expertise in my divorce.

Attorney recommendation
Hiring an attorney is a daunting task. I was referred to Van Wyhe Law Firm & Mediation Center by a friend. I cant thank these ladies enough for the gentle but firm guidance in going through my divorce process. It's an emotional process and they were the voice of reason I needed to hear when making these difficult decisions. I would not hesitate to recommend Miranda and Amanda.

I am lucky enough to have found Amanda and not only did she make this process smooth and comfortable but she put my concerns, my knowledge into this case and made sure i got what matter the most. If you ever need someone that is knowledgeable, caring, and on top of it SHE IS YOUR WOMEN

Best Team you could ask for
Was referred to the Van Wyhe law firm for my custody case and couldn't be happier with their team. They're always there when I need them, they explain everything and tell me what I need to do or get and how... Amanda and Miranda are the perfect team. We have our day 2 the end of this month and I feel confident with what the results will be but regardless of how it turns out I know that they did their best and if I ever need a lawyer again, This will be my go to team and I'd recommend them to anyone in the area. They're honest and truly worth every penny.

Outstanding!! Don't hire anyone else!
Amanda is the best lawyer and with Miranda, her para legal, they are a perfect team! I would hire them again without any hesitation. They are amazing!! We were going through a messy custody battle and she kept us informed every step of the way. Our questions and emails were always answered timely and they walked us through how to do everything and what we should expect. They never acted like I was bugging them when I needed clarification (a lot) and always spoke with a smile. Our trial took a long time due to the other party but they stayed on top of everything the whole time and didn't let the other lawyer or party push us around. They also double checked all our paperwork and documents so everything was always kept professional and appropriate for court. (Can't say the same for the other lawyer, who forgot to redact a few things.) If you're in the area, do your research and then come back and hire these 2. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent and professional
Amanda and Miranda could not have been better! I would highly recommend if you're in need of a divorce attorney. Especially from the other attorneys that I saw or have heard about.

Definitely recommend!
Amanda has been my lawyer for many years. She has been nothing but fantastic! She is very up front and honest. She tells you what you need to hear! She is very professional. She has always responded in a timely manner. When I have needed help with other things that she couldn’t represent me, she gave great recommendations for someone who could help. Her paralegal Miranda is also great! She is very profession and helpful as well. They make a great team and would recommend them to anyone!

Would definitely recommend.
My case was taken on short notice and they were kind enough to squeeze me into their busy schedules. I had great fast results with professional straight forward advice. Can't thank them enough for helping me through this difficult process.

Excellent Review!
In our first meeting, I was very happy and relieved to get reassurance about my custody case. I am so grateful for the professional & courteous service that was given. Amanda and Miranda are awesome. The best decision I ever made was hiring Van Wyhe Law Firm.

Well worth it!
With so many lawyers to choose from, I was at a loss as to whom would be best suited for my specific situation. I called Amanda's firm for a FREE consultation and they were very prompt to answer any questions I had. I hired this firm to represent me and I don't regret it one bit! Very friendly, ethical, and timely. If you're looking for a lawyer that practices family law, I highly recommend Amanda Van Wyhe!

Friendly and Professional
I have been carefully considering a modification of my custody. I researched attorneys for hours on AVVO and picked three with good ratings to call today. Amanda's website is so informative and told me a lot before I even called her. When I called the office this morning, her assistant was kind, patiently listened to my situation and offered insight that I didn't receive from the others. It was nice to have someone answering the phone who didn't just transfer me to a voicemail. Amanda's retainer is just slightly higher, but in this instance I think you get what you pay for! When I am ready to file, I am going with them!

Knows her stuff
Amanda handled a child custody/visitation modification for me. She is very knowledgeable, and experienced. She is careful not to guide you into doing something you don't want to do. She listens and she takes action. Amanda provided me with excellent service and was helpful to me when I told her I wanted to attempt to keep cost down. I would recommend her to anyone.

Knowledgeable Attorney at its finest!
Mrs. Van Wyhe is extremely knowledgeable about the law! She does not give you the runaround and is reliable in communication. She is theé best by far, and extremely recommended by previous clients. I do not regret one penny in hiring her! She cares for the child's best interest and that is important to me! I love the availability she provides (also with her incredible assistant) and always informs me as soon as there she receives any information about my case.

Effective Professional with expertise in her field.
Mrs. Van Wyhe was a tremendous help in assisting our family with a divorce modification. She was a wonderful child advocate for my daughter and cared about her well-being. Mrs. Van Wyhe was very professional and knowledgeable. She utilized many different avenues to progress through our case. She was readily available to take calls and e-mails, and quickly responded back. I was thoroughly pleased with not only the outcome of my case, but how expertly handled it was.
