Professional, and compassionate
I hired Attny Follett to help guide me and prepare the necessary paperwork associated with Estate Planning. Having lost my mother abruptly earlier in the year, I was overcome with what would happen should I fall ill, or pass. Who would have access to help me? Who would control, distribute, manage my estate. There were several sensitive issues to consider, and Attny Follett managed them with compassion and sensitivity. She was sure to 'dumb things down' (my term) for me, when it felt over my head. I was in the midst of grieving, quitting a job, recently moved, etc, so this was an added stress that could have been just too much. I appreciated the time, and patience, of Attny Follett and highly recommend.

We hired Amanda to help us to create a trust and to establish some layers of protection. She was very knowledgeable, provided us with multiple options to consider and explained the advantages and disadvantages of each. The entire process was easy and efficient!

Just what you want in a lawyer
Friendly, professional, and knows her stuff. Our living trust was created efficiently and quickly. She was always quick to return phone calls, and emails with answers to questions. Her assistant, Courtney, also impressed.

Outstanding Attorney
We retained Atty. Follett for a matter and she took time to explain the situation to us, and also she specified various options of "how to" handle the matter. We highly recommend her for her knowledge, skills and abilities as well as her willingness to assist us when we needed it most.
