I recommend Amanda Porter!
Because of Amanda Porter I had a good divorce! Divorce can be confusing, I appreciated her patience, explaining each step until I understood. I also enjoyed her sense of humor. At the completion of my divorce I had her do my will and several other documents. I'm a very satisfied client!

Simply Amazing!
I ave used Amanda for several custody issues. She is phenomenal. She provides clear and factual advice, easily taking out the emotion out of the situation and getting you to focus on the long term best result. I have passed her name onto others all with glowing reviews. Even with a good co-parenting relationship, I keep Amanda's info handy as questions or conflicts still arise over time.
