Very evident that she cares and has integrity.
I have consulted with Amanda regarding and few personal and business related transactions. Amanda was prompt, responsive and clearly communicated the pros and cons of the decision as well as brought to light a few other perspectives that I had not yet considered. It is evident that Amanda not only cares about her clients, but also believes in upholding high integrity...a must when considering an attorney.

Business Contracts
We hired Amanda Engel to make print release contracts for our photography business. We were previously using documents that we made ourselves which probably did not protect us from anything should we have had to enforce them and were not very inclusive of all of our special needs. Amanda was very thorough, and did her research after our first visit. She went above and beyond to ask many questions about how our individual business runs, and what we needed. She even thought of a few things to include in our contracts that we had never even considered but were much needed. I feel much more prepared for business as I feel that a great well worded contract leaves no questions between my clients and I spend a lot less time on emails and explaining. After using Amanda for our business, we were left with a very professional, sound, and easy to use and understand contract!
