We were referred to Attorney Waechter and couldn't be happier! She was very proactive with our case and went way beyond our expectations to get the outcome we were hoping for, but really never thought was possible.

I decided to hire a lawyer after my teen daughter was involved in a minor traffic accident and was charged with driving too fast for conditions.
I initially posted a question on Avvo and Ms. Waechter responded immediately with sound advice that made me immediately comfortable. We spoke by phone the next day and I hired her.
We had 2 court dates. The second day we had quite a few conversations about how to proceed. Ms. Waechter explained every option in a way we could easily understand. She helped us make the best decision and my daughter's case was dismissed.
I am extremely happy that I hired Ms. Waechter. And would recommend her to anyone that finds themselves heading to traffic court.

We haven't gone to court yet so i can't comment on that yet, but i will say shes very professional and extremely accessible. She answers all emails, phone calls, and all questions and concerns i had. She seems very confident and knowledgable in the art of clemancies. I hired her bc i got a good vibe when talking to her, plus good reviews from this site and others PLUS she seemed very confident, im not a fan of wishy washy type people, especially an attorney.

I have know Amanda for quite some time. She is an attorney who's opinion and expertise I hold in high regard. She is an exceptional attorney and formidable litigator. Amanda would get my top endorsement--someone I would refer family and friends too.
