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!

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.

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.
