Reliable - Attorney Extraordinaire!
I have hired Ms Amaro for land use issues of which her knowledge and advice was stellar. She is professional, creative and logical, seeking solutions and active efforts that is resolution based and nit court based. I’ve also worked with her in custody based course work in Idaho and was pleased with her compassion for the child over the diligent Representation of the parent. She leads with her heart but acts with her skills and ability with a perfect blend of what you want in an attorney.

Divorce/ custody
Rami performed above and beyond what I had anticipated from legal counsel. She has a thorough knowledge of the law and was able to go above and beyond in working to get me the maximum amount of time with my kids. Even while dealing with a less than reasonable opposition.

Best decision I ever made
I could not be more grateful. I was in a terrible custody battle and I thought I'd be lucky to get every other weekend. Rami worked hard, was always there when I called, and was vicious in court. I ended up getting everything I could have asked for and far more. The price was very reasonable but believe me it was worth every penny. If you are in a custody battle she is the lawyer to have. She also represented my cousin and got him all he asked for. Hire her you won't be let down

Rami is the best
She is incredibly thorough and very easy to talk to. She is sympathetic to the issues I am dealing with and works hard to get the best resolution in my favor. She also is realistic and will tell me what is worth fighting for, and what isn’t. She is prompt to respond to questions and explains things very clearly, which is useful when a client knows almost nothing about legal matters. Highly recommend!

A Review of services
Several years age, when my son and I had no place to turn----no lawyer in the state of Idaho would represent us. To say the least, we faced a very difficult and painful legal matter. Through the maze, we found Ms. Amaro. There is no question of her brilliance, dedication, passion and the wherewithal to stand to her ground in American's' Judicial system. Therefore, It is without any reservations that I recommend Ms. Amaro, .Several years age, when my son and I had no place to turn..no lawyer in the state of Idaho would represent us.

Helped Me Despite Being Sick
Ms. Amaro helped me with information I needed to start my own business even though she was very sick. She still took time out to talk to me and to help me. She is not like any other lawyer you will ever meet. She actually cares about people.

Mrs Amaro
Just amazing, well spoken, thorough, disciplined. Rami helped me through some tough times. I would not be here if not for her! My prior atty handed her a sorry excuse for a case, within weeks she had it all cleaned up and my case was presentable. Rami was able to give me more then I was asking the court for, without the underhanded sneaky business the other guy was doing. Honesty was truly the best policy.

John Recommends Ami Amaro
Ms. Amaro advised me on some work related aviation matters having to do with contractual compliance in regard to Federal Aviation Regulatory compliance when I was doing work for one of our union committees. She was prompt, professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. I would seek her advice again and highly recommend her to anyone needing legal advice or action.

Insightful and realistic
I had a unique family law issue that I took to Mrs. Amaro. She was able to see the major issues and put them into words years before the judges were able to see the truth. If the legal system were as intelligent and intuitive as Mrs. Amaro we would all be better off. If it weren't for Mrs. Amaro and her day or night availability I would not have custody of my oldest son. I really appreciate how she was seemingly always available to help.

Legal work pertaining to issues in a battle to get legally entitled documents/money from a dishonest developer
Ma Amaro, is always passionate, helpful and very committed to assisting me in getting what I knew I was legally entitled to and not receiving from a development company. Ms Amaro challenged the developers and found them to be indeed in breach of several written contracts that I had with them. The briefs that were written contained many key points that the developers tried to keep hidden from the other potential buyers, that would ultimately affect future sales. These facts had been verified by the USA government. Ms Amaro is and always has been the most constant in her professionalism and does not back down despite her opponents unsavory tactics. Ms Amaro stands her ground when faced with the ever daunting task of dealing with the multiple attorneys that the developers constantly hires. (They the developers fire their attorneys when the attorneys try to get them to see reality and that what they are trying to do is hurting their development and then they hire new ones). Ms Amaro is a champion for those who have suffered an injustice and I am very happy that she was on my side.

Good lawyer.
Rami prepared my paperwork for my disability application. I was approved the first time I applied. The clerk from the disability office even remarked about how great my paperwork was.

Dedicated attorney with a heart of gold
Mrs.Amaro has represented me for many years regarding my child custody matters.she is the only attorney I would ever use or recommend. She is amazing at trial; detail oriented ;efficient ;and caring she does not treat you like a paycheck but like a good friend.she takes time out to really listen,explain and to just be there for you.if there are any negative reviews about her they must be vindictive as I know that Mrs.Amaro is an incredible attorney who pours her heart and soul into every case that she handles.keep in mind an attorney can not guarantee a "win" but Mrs.Amaro does her best to get clients what they deserve.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2009.

Public Reprimand and Probation issued in ID, 2009
updated on 03/13/2014

Reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. While on probation, the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Rami's comment: “This involved a former client who was fired from her job after she engaged in misconduct. She blamed me as I had asked that the bank remove her access to my accounts due to her unstable behavior. I chose not to appeal the initial appeal decision by the bar - although I strenuously disagree with it.”

Reprimand issued in WA, 2009
updated on 03/13/2014

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Rami's comment: “This is the same matter - but reciprocal discipline by another state (required). This involved a former client who was fired from her job after she engaged in misconduct. She blamed me as I had asked that the bank remove her access to my accounts due to her unstable behavior. I chose not to appeal the initial appeal decision by the bar - although I strenuously disagree with it.”
