Custody Battle
Going through a custody battle is definitely one of the worst experiences I’ve ever has, and the best decision in that situation was to go to Tammy Andrews. I never has envisioned how confusing and stressful any court process could be, and Tammy really made it all simple and really went out of her way to diffuse the battle and make sure my interests were taken care of. Tammy is so well respected by the judges and really knows the ins and outs of the court system and she really knows the law. If you need an attorney who cares about her clients and can really hold her own with any of those big bucks law firms, Tammy is the person to call. I was up against one of the biggest family court law firms in LA and in the end it was Tammy’s professionalism, knowledge, and experience that got me what I needed. The resolution was better than I could have imagined. If I ever had a friend go through something this horrible, I’d waste no time and send him or her to Tammy.

Proactive and reliable
Tammy and her staff had provided me with direction, clarity, and assurance at the time when I felt threatened in my legal problem. She kept me updated with what was going on, on a regular basis. I was very relieved and grateful at how she managed my case successfully. I was very happy with the service she and her staff had provided and I highly recommend her to anyone especially if you have a very hectic work schedule. She is very reliable and competent in her field.

Nurturing Assurance
Tammy Andrews and her staff provided me with nurturing assurance and immediate aid during my devastating family legal crisis. I entered my first meeting with Tammy a bundle of emotional nerves and left feeling calmer in the knowledge that the matter was now in her very competent hands. It is comforting to know she is only a phone call away if I need more legal assistance

Awful Experience!
I hired Tammy for my divorce when I was in a very vulnerable time of mi life. She unethically overstated her expertise, overcharged, engaged in theft through intentional double billing, back-charged for conversations that happened prior to our engagement, then abandoned me (After billing $60k in only 2 months for no random stuff that did not in my case). She only wants to drain everything you have. Stay away!

If it's not easy, she'll bail on you.
I hired Tammy Andrews for my divorce. I run a Healthcare company, so I've dealt with my fair share of lawyers. She unethically overstated her expertise, overcharged, engaged in theft through intentional double billing, back-charged for conversations that happened prior to our engagement, showed negligence in outsourcing of work, then abandoned me when I started asking questions (After spending $80k). Stay away!
