Amy is an extraordinary Attorney. The moment we spoke for representation she was very informative and direct about the case. She is on top of everything . I cannot express how great she represented us in this case. I pray that we never need Her again ( in a nice way) but I can say that Amy is an Attorney I would recommend to anyone. She is a go get it done Lady...

Worried mom
Ms. Owen’s is definitely invested in her clients. She kept me informed and always answered all my questions. She makes herself available via text which is great cause we never had to play phone tag. She went above and beyond when she reached out to me after hours. While we are currently dealing with a health crisis in our area she did not allow it to affect her work and dedication. We are blessed she was assigned to us.

Amazing, Wonderful Attorney
I was charged for possession of a controlled substance 1-4 grams. Never had any other charges or been arrested. My original attorney was court appointed and I Got 5 years probation. I met with Amy and she was appalled that the attorney didn’t get my case dismissed. She started the process for early termination a few weeks ago and today I GOT OFF EARLY! Super quick process. She’s very communicative, reliable, and I feel like she actually CARES. I would recommend for anyone seeking an attorney to not look any further. She’s definitely who you want representing you.

Wonderful experience. Knowledgeable and responsive! Case dismissed!
Amy Owen was a pillar of hope when I needed it the most in my life. Extremely dedicated to achieve the best results for her client. She will represent you with indisputable knowledge and professionalism, while very personable and reassuring. I was going through a very hard time and was depressed because of my situation. Amy managed to get my case dismissed and all charges dropped. Now I can move on with my life and get back on track without a bad record to follow me. My hope has been restored and my worries erased. Amy Owen is the attorney you want to represent you because she will fight for you and win.

I am so thankful!!!
After I was arrested for a DWI, I was recommended to Amy Owen from a friend and boy am I glad I listened and hired her. Amy has such a calming presence and has a way of making you feel like everything is going to be okay, even through one of the most difficult times of your life. She kept me updated on my case, kept me informed, and in the end got my case DISMISSED! I can’t be more thankful for Amy, as she helped me avoid something that could have potentially been very bad for me. THANK YOU, Amy Owen!!

A true professional...Honest, reliable & knowledgeable
Amy is passionate about the law & her clients...Consulted and hired her for a civil proceeding. She is very professional, kept me updated about my case, explained every step -in detail- of the process, she is very knowledgeable in family law. She is reliable, she returns calls and I felt she had my best interest at heart. Without hesitation, I recommend Ms. Owen for Civil or Criminal representation.

Family Law
Amy did a wonderful job with my case. It began with her taking the time to truly understand my complex situation. Her availability gave me a true sense of comfort as she always returned my phone calls and or messages in a prompt manner. This always made me feel secure and protected. Her court room presence and preparedness was spectacular. Always well prepared and ready to provide me with great guidance as we worked through my case. I can safely say she went above and beyond in her service. I could not have asked for a better outcome to my case. I would definitely refer Amy to anyone out there in need of a great Lawyer.

Amazing, understanding Attorney
Amy has assisted me personally as well as referrals to friends and family, including my fiance on some tough cases. She approaches your case with a superior attention to detail;yet, is very compassionate and reassuring, even in less than ideal situations. Amy has had her hands full with me, I regularly tell her that I understand enough of the law to get myself in trouble. She takes the time to really explain the situation and ensures her clients understand what's going on and possible outcomes/expectations. If you're considering a consultation, be confident that Amy's assistance will result in the best possible outcome for your case.

Highly Competent and Professional
Being caught in a nightmare 4 hours away from home for the first time in my life was stressful to say the least. Amy and her team were AMAZING!!!! They took care of everything from start to finish. They stayed in touch throughout the process and reassured me they'd get everything taken care of, which they did, quickly and efficiently. Best experience I've ever had with an attorney and their practice!!! Would highly recommend this firm to fight for you.

Stress lifted
Hired amy from a referral that had great results from her. I made a bad decision and found myself in court with an assult, I had court appointed lawyer, no clue which direction I was heading with this individual. Then a friend referred me to Amy, she is a person of great confidence. She took the stress from me and assured that she was gonna work hard on this case. My case was dismissed and my family couldnt be more grateful for her hard work. I refer her to any one when looking for a lawyer

Changed my life!
I needed an attorney to help me get my son back from my abusive mother. He was kept from me for almost 6 months and I was having trouble finding the right path to bringing him home since seeing him wasn't an option. My mom had kicked me out and kept my son from me illegally. I needed help. Amy was AMAZING. Not only did she change my life and help me win the battle against my mother, but she got me my son back. I was finally free from my abusor and I was free to be with my son. And it was all because of Amy's hard work, dedication, support, and advise. Even after I got my son back, she has maintained being in my life and giving me help, support, and advise in any and every way she can. If you need an attorney, saying I recommend her is an understatement. There is literally no one else you should go to.
