Amazing
Amy has always got back to me when I email or call her within the same day. She is a very fair, kind person and she makes great judgement calls on what to do. She is organized with everything. She has great people skills, and is dedicated to doing an amazing professional job. Amy, was thorough with my case and did everything in her power to have my child's voice and mine heard by the judge. When I needed references for people to go to she knew exactly who to talk to and what to do. I will continue to keep her in my phone for many years and would recommend her to my family and friends.

One of the best lawyers we've ever dealt with
Amy is a tremendous asset to the law industry; we were terrified about the situation we were facing, and Amy's expert knowledge and professional demeanor put us right at ease. She made herself available to answer all of our questions and calm our fears; she treated us with the utmost dignity and respect; and most of all, she made us feel like we were a priority and not just another number. Amy is absolutely wonderful and we will have no qualms about recommending her to anyone.

Amy Sauter
Amy provided diligent and effective representation. Not only is she knowledgeable and experienced, she actively listened to all my concerns to address each circumstance thoroughly; while keeping my best interests in mind. She is attentive to detail, communicative and provided excellent guidance along the way. As a result of my experience, and my confidence in her from that, I would recommend Amy to anyone seeking an attorney with her skill set.

Mr.
Amy Sauter and her firm handled my case for spousal support adjustment. Her and her team were very easy to work with, especially during these difficult times. The services and legal direction was through and provided me with an acceptable outcome to my case. I would highly recommend Amy and her firm to anyone looking for assistance in this area of family law.

Amy is our Unicorn
In what seems to be a dog eat dog world, Amy is what every lawyer should be. She's professional, intelligent and knowledgeable. (And yes, I believe intelligence and knowledge are two completely different entities that are a rarity to find in any one person.) From day one she has always had my sons and my best interest at heart. She's picked up where others could have let the ball drop. I truly believe she is our unicorn, that once in a life time person that is going to make a difference for the better in my family's life. It is more than comforting knowing she is the one that is representing us. I will continue to work with Amy far beyond our current family law case and would turn to her for any legal need that may ever arise in the future.

Excellent
Amy is an excellent attorney. I have never felt more comfortable going to anyone with my issues. I know I can email her whenever I have an issue and she will answer as soon as she can. She has helped me with everything possible in my case. If I am out of line with what I am asking she is sure to tell me and make sure I don't over step my boundaries in the case. She is an amazing attorney and I would recommend her to anyone. I couldn't have asked for someone better to represent me and help me with my case.

Amy was great! She was very informative and knowledgeable, and she was always extremely responsive. She knew how to help and made the process, which is an unpleasant ordeal, easy to deal with. Communication was great. She was friendly and kind. Great job! I'd definitely recommend her and would use her again.

MR.
Amy was recommended by a relative. Working with her was a very stress free. She talked in a way i could understand. She kept me in the loop on any thing that was going on with my case. The first time i met her she made me feel very comfortable with dealing with i thought was a very complicated. I knew right away that she was there to help me thru the whole case.

Amy Sauer Attorney with Heller and Thyen Law Firm St. Cloud MN
We met Amy at her office at Heller & Thyen in St. Cloud, Mn. When we first starting thinking of filing for bankrupcy we were apprehensive and to be honest scared. We made appointments with 3 different attorney's. Amy was our 2nd appointment. She was very friendly front the first appointment and explained to us all our different options. We immediately felt at ease and at the end of our free consultation and we hired her and her law firm. Throughout the whole process Amy was friendly and constantly answered our questions we had many and kept us informed. She was always quick to return a phone call or an email . We never felt uncomfortable with the process. Going through a bankruptcy is a very emotional process that she understands from the begining to the end. We would highly recommend Amy and her staff at Heller & Thyen. Thank you Amy for all you do.

Amy was an excellent lawyer and we liked the fact she had a legal team behind her law firm she could consult with if needed. However, the most important thing for me was the personal care and understanding we received. Not only her legal expertise, but her compassion and sensitivity to our circumstances helped us navigate through a very difficult time in our lives.
