Intelligent, supportive, strong and thorough
Amanda helped me through a challenging divorce mediation while I was finishing chemotherapy treatments. She was both supportive and strong by my side and made the challenging moments much more bearable. I have tremendous confidence in the intelligence and thoroughness of Amanda and her team and have continued to hire them for help with additional legal challenges.

Excellent & Trustworthy divorce attorney
Amanda and her team impressed me from the very get-go. If you want an attorney who is responsive, who will work as much within your budget as possible, and will keep you clearly informed throughout your legal journey - I recommend Amanda fully and without reservation. In my case, it was a relatively agreeable divorce situation with children, multiple properties and businesses involved. And as my divorce attorney, I could not have asked for better representation and sound advice. As with any divorce, I had some times of pretty high emotion and Amanda was kind, non-judgmental and very understanding to the challenges I was facing. And along the way, Amanda and I shared some great laughs which made the tough situation of divorce a bit easier. Are there things that Amanda's office could probably do better? Sure. But that's true of any attorney or any business practice. What she does best is what matters most - and that is ensuring her clients are protected, advised, and represented professionally with the highest ethical standards.

Great family lawyer
I hired Amanda Andrae to help me with a child conservator issue. I had orders in place already regarding custody and child support but I needed to change them to sole conservatorship in order to take care of everything for my daughter in the complete absence of her father. I knew that changing orders was very difficult and would be even more so without being able to locate the father to serve him. I had also had a terrible experience with the lawyer who wrote the original orders and felt very uncomfortable undergoing the process again. I researched and chose Amanda and her firm carefully and I am so glad I did. Amanda figured out exactly what needed to be done, inspired confidence and calm in me, and took me through the long process with the exact end result I needed for my daughter's safety and best interests. The new orders are perfect, thoughtfully written to reflect our situation rather than boilerplate, and have already worked wonders. With them, i was able to get my daughter a passport and give her school authority to turn away her father if he tried to come pick he up. I feel immense peace of mind knowing my daughter is safe.

Ethical, compassionate, dedicated attorney in an extremely complicated and difficult situation.
Amanda Andrae is an ethical, compassionate, dedicated attorney who truly cares about what is important in family law, the best interest of the child. My situation was beyond complex and difficult with respect to the dyamics of all the involved parties, therapists, attorneys, witnesses, etc. Amanda did not falter in her ability to skillfully manage both the "people" side of things and the legal/ technical. She is honest and responsive, and truly went above and beyond to find ways to resolve an impossible situation. Amanda is also well respected by other attorneys, judges and therapists in Austin, which is important. In a situation where there were often no good answers, she did what she does best, which is think strategically, creatively, and always focus on what was best for my children and for me. If you want an ethical, compassionate, skilled family law attorney, I highly recommend Amanda Andrae.

Divorce and parent visitation
Amanda and her team have exhibited the perfect amount of understanding and empathy balanced with sound legal guidance. Amanda was sensitive to my desires in implementing my divorce and setting up visitation for my ex-husband but didn't let me short myself by giving up more than I needed.

Amanda Andrae
Amanda is compassionate and cares about her clients. She is ethical and her good morals and family values come through in her work. She hires professional and knowledgable staff to support her. I appreciate how she provided options and recommendations but allowed me to ulitmately make my decisions. Other lawyers can be overpowering and pushy but Amanda has never acted this way. Lastly, she knows many lawyers, judges, counselors, etc. in her field, and has built a great rapport among her peers.
