Trustworthy, knowledgeable and kind
Amy has helped me with a couple different legal matters in the last few years. She helped me with the adoption of my son and was always available for the many questions I had. It was the biggest and most important legal matter of my life, not to mention the most stressful, and I would not have trusted just any attorney. I knew, by the end of our first meeting, that she was completely trustworthy and an expert in adoption law. She was also honest and so kind. I could relax because I knew she would take care of both of us and she most certainly did. I easily refer her on to anyone I know looking to adopt. After the completion of my son's adoption, it was time for me to do some estate planning. Amy was my first call. She took all the time I needed to sit down and hash through my situation. I have some unusual things to take into account and she easily worked around them and found the best way for me and my family. I expected it to be a more stressful and uncomfortable conversation but Amy has a way of putting you at ease. I'm not sure there is any legal issue I wouldn't first check with Amy on! She might refer me on to someone else if it isn't her area of expertise but she is "my lawyer" so she will always get the first phone call. Amy, thanks for all that you do, for so many families just like mine. I am thankful to have found you and I will happily continue to refer you on!

Perfect Package
Amy has been there for me and my family in every situation possible. She has always been kind,caring, attentive, understanding, and unbelievably knowledgeable. No matter what time of day or night I have an issue or a question she's there for me. There is nobody in this world that I would trust my life or my child with. She has put so much time into caring about me and my family that I feel she is apart of our family. I couldn't be more grateful that she has been a part of my life and has helped me get through all of life's problems. I wouldn't trade her for the world and if you have the chance or need her, there's nobody else I would recommend. Thank you beyond a million hearts Amy. I mean every word from the bottom of my heart. My gratitude could never be expressed with words.

Amy Vinton is the best Attorney ever!
Amy was very helpful and kept me well informed. She helped me terminated my guardianship. Since last year 2014 in July I have been my own guardian and it feels good. She helped me get out of a guardianship I did not want to be in. I am loving life and I thank Amy for it. She is an amazing Attorney. And I recommend her to anyone. To this day she still gives me advice. I thank you Amy for everything you have done for me! I am glad I had you as my Attorney!

Amy has been our family estate planning attorney for over 15 years. We have consistently gone back to her for updates and advice, and she has been great about suggesting different things we need to think about as our kids have gotten older. We trust her and know she has our best interests at heart, and don't hesitate to call her when we have questions. She is part of our team and we would definitely recommend her to others!
