Review Amanda Branca
  • Incredible Attorney!!!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Ruth

    I wish I could give Amanda more than 5 stars! I hired Amanda to handle my very ugly and very messy divorce after reading her incredible reviews. I cannot imagine going through the hardest time in my life without her. Every time I called I got to speak directly with her. I did not have to leave messages with office staff which I know was the case with opposing council. Amanda responded and acted very quickly to every request of mine and opposing council while the other side would take weeks to respond. She was very professional and enjoyable to work with. She fought hard for me and did not nickel and dime me in the process. I would recommend Amanda to any family or friends going through a divorce. Thank you for all of your help Amanda!!!

    Separation is a rough process. Initially, I tried to handle the details on my own. I spent a lot of time feeling like I wasn't doing the best for me or my children. That completely changed during my first conversation with Amanda. She was open, understanding and immediately on task. She zeroed in on my best interests and kept the process focused on that. She is a quick study and possesses amazing clarity. Amanda helped pull my divorce together quickly and efficiently. I am immensely grateful. She is incredibly fast and I felt that she approached each issue promptly and as a priority. It was like having an extremely bright and trusted friend.

    I hired Amanda to handle my divorce last October. It was a little tricky because it was difficult to find my soon-to-be ex. Like anyone going through a divorce, I had a lot of questions and Amanda was always quick to respond AND it was always Amanda and not an aide working for her. I highly recommend her to anyone going through this process.

  • Review for my favorite attorney

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Cat

    I am so happy to have met Amanda. A friend recommended her when I was getting ready to proceed with my divorce. At first, I was skeptical, since I had heard horror stories about people dealing with lawyers, and I had never had to use a lawyer prior to that. However, from our very first meeting, Amanda explained the process very clearly to me and answered all of the questions that I had. She was very nice, sweet, and encouraging. From the very first sentence that she told me, from her confident manner of speaking and presenting herself, I knew that she meant business. Prior to talking with her, I had called a couple of attorneys whose numbers I had gotten by the Bar Referral Service, and both of them were quite frankly condescending and intimidating. Talking to Amanda was such a breath of fresh air; she empowered me to go through the long and drawn out process of divorce and custody division.
    Throughout the divorce, Amanda has always been on-point about answering a million and one of my questions very promptly, filing all the proper paperwork exactly whenever it was supposed to be filed and coming to every single one of my court meetings (I heard from some other acquaintances of mine that some of their attorneys did not even show up at some of the meetings, which would have terrified me, to face the judge on my own).

    I understand that in order to have licensure as an attorney, one needs to have a basic understanding of when to file what forms and how. However, I think that what makes a great attorney stand out is their ability to relate to a client and look at each client's situation from a fresh perspective, evaluating a diverse spectre of legal approaches and options. Amanda is exactly that -- she is very personable, knowledgeable, and analytical. More so, talking to Amanda felt like talking to a friend - in the whole mess of my crazy divorce, she was my ally, my buddy, my rock. I knew that she would never give me a bad advice, and I knew not to panic unless she was going to (she didn't!). I think that for most people, splitting custody of the kids and going through a divorce brings us to our knees, and that is when Amanda's most helpful, kind, and knowledgeable attitude is indispensable.

    There are no words to explain how much I liked working with Amanda. She responded quickly. She knew what she was talking about. Her advice let me sleep through the night. Whatever issue you are dealing with, she can help or she knows who can help you. I hope that I never need to chat with her again but I now know who to call if I need someone on my side. She wasn't about the money - she actually wanted to help me. Thank you Amanda!

  • An Absolute Superstar Family Law Attorney

    5.0 stars

    If you are just starting the terrifying process of divorce, engaging Amanda Branca as your family law attorney will undoubtedly be the best decision you can make. I can’t tell you how many times during my divorce I thanked my lucky stars that I stumbled across Amanda and hired her. She is truly the best family law attorney out there - I initially typed “one of the best” but then changed it because I honestly believe you can’t get better than her.

    Amanda is s superstar in literally every area possible – she is unbelievably responsive (so much so I worried I was her only client, which is obviously not the case …but that’s how she will make you feel), has expert knowledge of family law, is compassionate, is skilled and creative when it comes to negotiation, and is a pro when it comes to managing your expectations and helping you to understand and come to grips with worst and best case scenarios. In addition, she is incredibly generous in her billing – I know that I would have had to pay significantly more had I used another law firm …I’m talking 2-5 times more! Finally, she has a great sense of humor and knows when it’s appropriate to inject a bit of levity into an otherwise tense situation.

    My case was fairly complex – a child was involved and there was another issue where there wasn’t much case law to go off. I am very satisfied and don’t think I could have gotten a better outcome (a tough feat when it comes to family law because from what I can tell, both parties often come out of it feeling screwed). More importantly, I am so grateful to have had Amanda by my side during what has been one of the most challenging years of my life. She made an awful process bearable and helped me keep my sanity when I was overcome with anxiety, sadness, and anger. She is utterly an incredible attorney …and a genuinely compassionate and thoughtful human being.

    Amanda was great. She was patient and understanding to my situation and helped me through this very difficult and nerve-wracking process. I will use her more!

    Amanda is an incredible attorney! She always replied to every email and phone call right away, which I appreciated so much after dealing with other attorney's who would take a week to make a return phone call. Amanda is considerate but won't sugar coat the legal facts, another thing I really appreciated! Amanda helped me with my divorce and also helped me negotiate spousal support and child visitation issues with my ex after their refusal to get an attorney, I could trust her to contact my ex to continue to work on my behalf.

    Amanda was an outstanding representative in my divorce proceedings. She had a solid grasp of the legal process and was extremely helpful in providing sound guidance.
    I've heard some horror stories of divorce proceedings, but Amanda made the process feel like a breeze.

  • Child custody and visitation client

    In our case, Amanda helped us modify child and spousal support as well as negotiate custody matters. She was very thorough in her research of the case and past judgements in our case. She kept us well-informed during the entire process and gave excellent advice. Amanda worked twice as hard for a reasonable rate than my previous "big shot", high rate lawyer! She even found things he should've done previously and picked up his slack. In the courtroom and dealing with the opposing counsel, she was clear, concise and direct in her arguments. We will be using her again in the future for further issues regarding support and highly recommend her to others!
