Drafting of Will
My mother Alicia Nuncio accompanied my Sister Janie on a trip to this particular Law Firm and she called me that afternoon to tell me she was going to write her will with KLC. I asked her why and stated that everyone she spoke that day at the firm were very nice and professional. I accompanied My Mother on several visits with Amanda while details of Will were bieng hammered out. As soon as we left Amandas office that day until the Wills Completion. Both me and My Mother appreciated the attention to detail, the communication was excellent and especially Amandas persistence when she needed to communicate with the Family. I personally have Used Charles Craig and Herbert Evans in legal matters here in Austin. I have to rate this firm as excellent. On behalf on The Nuncio Familia we want to Say Muchisimas Gracias Amanda. Your Spanish was a clincher and we appreciate all the Folks at KLC.

Great Service
Amanda was an attorney we employed to help with guardianship paperwork at the Austin Probate Court. She did a great job and I would refer a friend to her if they are in the need of representation.

She has earned my loyalty and repeat busniness!
Amanda was knowledgeable, helpful, and quick! She guided me through setting up a LLC, was always available to answer my questions, and made sure I had any documents needed within minutes. In addition, she is a kind, thoughtful, and patient person who helped me immensely in an area I had no previous knowledge of. She has earned our loyalty and repeat business.

Versatile and Resourceful
Amanda has helped me with a few different situations now. She prepared descriptions of my properties for a divorce filing. She also gave me excellent guidance in dealing with two different personal issues; one involving a less than perfect mechanic experience, and another in needing a defense attorney. If Amanda was not able to do the work herself she was honest about that not being her specialty, and was always very prudent about referring me to someone who would have more knowledge and experience with that specific issue. She was always very professional, friendly, and courteous... I would recommend her to all of my close friends and family in a heart beat.
