I hired Amy to represent in a paternity matter. She was always cold and distant an mistrustful. Seems only concerned about being paid, not about getting what you need. My ex had multiple DUIs, but Amy never put in order that he should be restricted from drinking or any penalties for him to continue to drink. Of course, he continued to drink and drive and racked up more tickets, causing me to have to go back to court again and again. She could have done a better job of representing me, looking out for a child, but she didn't. Didn't feel that she cared and just wanted to be paid. She became very cold and distant after awhile and I never understood why. Wound up hiring a different attorney who reviewed her work and said she made lots of mistakes.

I have worked with Amy on post divorce issues and she has always been strong and steady. She has given me difficult advice at times when I didn't want to hear it or follow that course.
She is well respected in the community for being honest and straight forward. She is compassionate and listens to her clients and does what is most prudent.
I am always greeted with a smile and great advice anytime that I need to enlist her help.
She has been successful every time that we have needed to go in front of the judge. She knew what would resonate with that specific judge and knew when to let go of something.
I have referred Amy to several other friends going through difficult family matters and they have been very satisfied with her services as well.

My divorce had special issues at play as my ex has issues with multiple addictions. These issues impacted our finances and children in significant ways. Amy represented me through our collaborative divorce. I can’t say enough good things about Amy’s knowledge and skills. She has a high moral compass that kept my focus on the big picture, despite the natural grief, anger, resentment and sadness that would pull me down. She does a great job of keeping things fair and balanced, logical and purposeful. She was direct and honest with me about likely outcomes – particularly when they wouldn’t be in my favor and then was creative about finding solutions. She was a God send for me and helped me land softly after what was a heart wrenching negotiation. I’m thrilled with our outcomes. And I’m happier, healthier and more whole as a human being than I have been in years. Thank you Amy for helping to get me here!

Amy, is an honest, hard-working and insightful attorney. I have worked opposite her on numerous cases, and she always has the ability to advance a client's position, while looking for creative solutions that can work for both parties and reduce conflict. She is one of the few lawyers I refer friends to as she treats all cases and clients ethically and as a priority.
