Amanda has been a godsend. She has listened to my needs and wants. She is upfront with me on my case and what I can expect. I’m very confident in her abilities.

worst experience
This was by far the worst experience i have ever had dealing with an attorney. Initially everything was going well, as the case progressed everything started going wrong. I was usable to get a hold of Amanda, every time i called the office i was told she was busy and asked to leave a message. I would get an email response a week late. After waiting 3+ months of my time and delaying the case i got an email for the court that she was requested to remove herself form the case with no explanation. Never received an final invoice and all attempts to contact her were ignored.

I first hired her to extend a spousal support order then had to file a failure to pay court order.. I had moved to Indiana and would have to come back for court appearances in which she would ask for a continuance. Never explained what she was doing, never kept me informed, misinformed me about drawing soc sec from ex husband, charged for a phone call in which I had to call and check on case was gave a court date thankfully I called court house and found out there was no court hearing. Never returned phone calls, this has been going on since Summer of 2019!!!!! After a review I left one of the owners replied to call the office so they could respond to my concerns. Called on 11/9 9:42am left a message with secretary and still no reply!! She is the WORST I have ever had the misfortune to meet. She did nothing for the money she received but file for 2 cases. I wouldn't even give 1 star but they have to have a rating
