Great family law attorney!
Amber is super knowledgeable on all things family law. In just one conversation, you can tell how much experience she has, and you feel like you are in good hands. She will come up with a strategy for your case based on your goals, explain the strategy, and keep you updated throughout the entire process to make sure you understand what is going on and that you are in alignment. Would definitely recommend!

Professional, Strategic & Communicative
Attorney Amber Shemesh is the perfect attorney for anyone who needs out of a marriage due to emotional and mental abuse. Amber and her team showed a high level of professionalism mixed with compassion. Amber tells you the reality without sugarcoating anything. What you get from Amber and her legal team is a strategic roadmap. I was really impressed by Amber's skills in reading people, and both her and Attorney Willen's negotiations skills. The mediator they chose was highly qualified. I also appreciated prompt responses to my questions via email. When it comes to custody, you need an attorney who is highly knowledgeable of the best parenting counselors, along with divorce counselors for your children. I was appreciative of having a say in what goes into the divorce decree. Amber is your advocate and a great listener. She knows how to read people. You can laugh, cry and vent in a non-judgmental environment plus get brilliant legal strategy. I highly recommend hiring Amber and her team. You will be glad you did.

Exceptional service and knowledge
Amber has been and always will be my legal go to for family law issues. She's handled prior custody case and my recent divorce. I've been able to refer others to her with excellent results and resolutions. She and her team are super knowledgeable, thorough and professional. The communication and updates were exceptional. The integrity and ethics to this office are of the highest level. Legal issues are never pleasant but they can be less stressful with the right the team handling your case. Look no further.

Amazing lawyer!
Amber K. Shemesh has Excellent communication skills! She is woman of many hats. Without her help, I know that I would not have had the successful outcomes I have had. She took on an extremely difficult case and encountered issues that no one expected. She has stood by every one of my requests and guided me through the entire lengthy process. I am proud to be her client and will continue to retain them for all legal matters that may arise as I know I am in the best hands.

Long Distance Child Custody and Mediation Success
Amber and her team were amazing! As an active duty military member, stationed overseas, I already had a divorce decree and child custody/visitation agreement in the state of Florida. This agreement was very one-sided and my ex (and daughter) had relocated to the state of Texas. I contacted Amber and discussed my concerns. Amber immediately impressed me with her calm demeanor and knowledge of family court/child custody agreements. It was a long uphill battle for quite some time, as I had to communicate from overseas via emails and skype. Additionally, my ex was not as easy to work with. There were also issues moving the case to TX, as the opposing council did not want to this nor the mediation to occur. Bottom line, Amber assisted me in making this process easy, she answered all questions in an extremely timely manner and was extremely thorough with my case. She was honest and gave me real feedback on what the outcome may be dependent on each scenario. I never doubted Amber and am extremely satisfied. We were able to move things to TX and mediate. I would highly recommend Amber Shemesh to my closest friends and family. She is an amazing attorney. I cannot thank her enough for being patient, thorough and to keep me moving in the right direction. This all occurring with 6 hour time difference, 10,000 miles and COVID to boot. Thank you Amber for your amazing work! I honestly cannot express my gratitude to her and her team, words alone are not enough.

Divorce
Amber was vital in helping me through my divorce. During the entire process, she demonstrated knowledge and confidence stemming from her experience in her field of practice. She also showed compassion and understanding in what was otherwise a difficult time in my life. She quickly answered any and all questions that I had, and helped me understand the process from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Amber for anyone looking for help getting through any family-related legal matter.

Child Custody Case
Amber was amazing and up front with my husband and I. She was patient with us and walked us through what to expect with this case. There were no surprises. She was truly a pleasure to have as a lawyer and helped ease my mind though the whole process. I hope to not need her services again but would hire her in a heartbeat if we did. She is amazing and I highly recommend her.

Professional Excellence
I could not be more pleased with Mrs. Shemesh and her staff. The professionalism shown and dedication to take care of my needs as well as the needs of my son were impeccable. The communication between attorney and client was spoken in a way that I could completely understand my legal rights. When in front of the judge, there was full confidence that all bases were covered, plus some. Thank you to Mrs. Shemesh and her staff.

Professionalism at it's finest
Amber Shemesh, Attorney at Law, did my final will and testament as well as a Power of Attorney. She answered all my questions and comforted my concerns with a tremendous amount of knowledge. She and her staff were very professional in every aspect. I'm a very tough critic and can say I would have Amber Shemesh do any of my civil legal work for me. Very happy to give her the best recommendation possible.

Great Work Thanks Shemesh Family Law
As the "out spouse" from the beginning of the case Amber was understanding of financial considerations to try and keep costs down. Her communication is superb, responding to emails late in the evening or even on the weekends for matters not even considered urgent or emergencies. She doesn't leave you hanging and stressed out waiting for answers and responses. Though costs did get out of hand she was dealing with an aggressive opposing counsel and an unreasonable ex spouse who tried to steamroll my rights and intimidate me into signing a very lopsided unfair settlement using less than honorable tactics. She was able to protect me in a high conflict contentious divorce that would have left my life in ruins without her support and caring attitude about my well being and that of my children. Her attitude, approach, experience, and skills are superb. Stellar representation is to be found at Shemesh Family Law, her new firm she is working hard to build. Please consider her for your legal matter if your children or case is important to you to achieve the best outcome.

Amazing attorney, highly recommend!!
After having two other lawyers prior to Amber and then hiring Amber, I was blown away the difference in professionalism and knowledge that she had. I have referred several people to her and they have all had great experiences. Amber gets the job done and listens to you and your needs. I can't say enough great things about her!! She is a class act and I HIGHLY recommend her!!

Highly Recommend
Amber is the calm during the storm. I feel that she is concerned about me and is a genuine, caring person. I have worked with Amber on 2 divorces. She sets the expectations properly, listens to what your objectives are, and then works diligently to achieve your goals. She has a great knowledge of the law, the people who work the system and what their preferences/prejudices are. She is very cost conscientious, working with me to keep costs down. I have worked with other Attorney’s on other matters and I felt that she was easier to work with, more responsive and represented my interests better, by far. I highly recommend her.”
