I do NOT recommend using them for consumer issues. She agreed to take a look at my case and said that we would most likely have a case as long as her "expert mechanic" could find what was wrong. I purchased a used car and 2 days after I bought it, smelled oil burning. Took the car back to where I bought and they told me it had a cracked head. They kept my car for THREE MONTHS and I left with a $2400 bill and still losing ALOT of oil, 1 quart every 500 miles to be precise. I called Amy Wells and she insisted that I take the car to her "expert mechanic" and not have anyone else do the diagnostic on it to find out where the oil was going even though I told them it was BURNING oil not LEAKING OIL!!! Her "expert mechanic" took 2 months before finally looking at my car (all the while I had to drive this car as it is my only means of transportation) Much to my surprise....her "expert mechanic" charged me $250 and all he did was an oil change and then said he couldn't figure out where the oil was going so he called the test "inconclusive" and a month later she told me she couldn't take my case. Now, ANOTHER month later....my engine blew up today on the way to work, meaning the whole engine is gone and I don't have a vehicle!!! Her mechanic also said that I had a wheel bearing going out and when I took that to get fixed......no wheel bearing going out, they were fine!!!!!!! She told me my options were to give her more money but that it would be a waste of time because I wouldnt get anything after her fees or get a second mechanic opinion or legal opinion!!! I spoke to another attorney who IS taking on my case with no problems and I'm also stuck right now paying a $3000 bill for a new engine put in the car.

I would DEFINITELY recommend Amy to anyone that needs help with consumer rights. My husband and I both lost our jobs for almost 2 years and ran into debt issues. I was terrified I would be sued by debt collectors, have my house taken, wages garnished, etc. Amy was able to calm my nerves with her abundant knowledge of consumer law and her compassion. She went to bat for me and helped me settle my debt to a reasonable amount. Amy is the complete package.... extremely bright, compassionate and a formidable opponent! Thanks Amy!

My husband and I have hired Ms. Wells to handle a few different matters for us over the last few years, mostly dealing with breach of warranty issues. She knew the law inside and out and informed us of all rights. She was also very frank about the risks we faced if we decided to fight our case and didn't pressure us to do anything we didn't want to do. Two of the three cases Ms. Wells helped us with were settled without a lawsuit ever being filed, so we were very happy with this result. The other one settled not to long after we filed a lawsuit. We tried to settle that one before, but just as Ms. Wells predicted, the other party wouldn't work with us. And best of all in the end we got all of our legal fees paid for by the other side. We will definitely recommend Ms. Wells to anyone who has a problem with a business. She really fights hard for the side of people.

Atty. Wells defended me in a civil action brought by ex in-laws over a money dispute. She handled all aspects of the case with professionalism, skill and compassion. Ms. Wells knows her business thoroughly, is a tough fighter and has an excellent support staff. I highly recommend her.

Attorney Amy Wells has handled a couple matters for me. She is highly skilled in her trade and helped to resolve an extremely stressful situation with a debt collector. Throughout the process, Amy was realistic with me about what I might expect while remaining supportive in what steps I wanted to take with my matter. She has always been honest and forthcoming with any issues in my case, which allowed me to make informed decisions when it came to the resolution of my matter. I highly recommend Attorney Wells to anyone who needs both an effective advocate and advisor.

Amy helped me when i was being harassed by a collection agency. Her and her staff kept me informed every step of the way. Amy also understands that most people don't understand law 'lingo' so she always explains things very clearly.
Amy also is a very realistic lawyer. She will not waste your time chasing after something that can't be caught. A couple times I was being a little unrealistic with my settlement demands so she took the time to explain why I shouldn't expect certain things.
If you want an amazing lawyer who isn't an ambulance chaser and doesn't waste your time to collect more fees, Amy is definately the right choice!!

Issue with another attorney that filed suit against me for a time barred debt. Ms. Wells immediately had answers, with excellent advice on how to repremand the oposition, for violating FDCPA Act.

My husband retained Amy Wells in January 2009 for a very complex, emotionally charged family identity theft matter. It was something we had tried to fight on our own for the preceding year and I immediately felt like a weight have been lifted when we met Amy. It was a long, hard battle, but the case is now settled and we were extremely happy with everything Amy did to help us. I can honestly say we would not have made it through this horribly traumatic situation without her assistance. I am an attorney as well, and feel Amy's professionalism and courtesy throughout the course of this case was outstanding. We would recommend Amy to anyone dealing with an identity theft matter, in fact I have on several occasions.

I turned to Amy Wells to sort out some financial matters in the wake of a difficult divorce. From our first meeting, she could not have been more supportive or more efficient. An excellent listener, she focussed on my particular needs and went to work immediately on helping me address them. She can be very tough in defending her clients and that is a great plus. But her strongest suit is that she is a thorough-going professional of great integrity. I would recommend her without reservation: she is just the best.
