Bright and Supportive
Amanda is very bright and supportive. I had two other attorneys before Attorney Naples who seemed to just create a mess of my case more than anything else. Amanda was very organized and all of my options were clearly given to me. The whole office was nice and helpful.

Great Legal Team!
This firm did a spectacular job! My ex made all kinds of threats including abusing my children! The case went to trial and I won on every single issue! Not only did I win but I left with full custody of my kids. Amanda helped on my case and prepared all of the proof needed for the court to see that I was telling the truth and my ex was just trying to keep my kids from me. The entire office was great and I would recommend the Law Office of Heather Cullen to everyone who needs a custody attorney!

Finest legal team!
I hired the Law Office of Heather Cullen following a referral from a friend who had just used the office for his divorce case. The office was comfortable and welcoming. The staff was always friendly and put my needs first. Amanda Naples was the attorney assigned to my case. She was fantastic! Ms. Naples returned all of my calls right away and was available to meet with me in person whenever I needed to meet with her. We discussed my case often and I was always informed and kept current on what was happening with my case. We went to court a number of times and I was happy with my representation and the outcome of each hearing. This office was great and I will never go anywhere else.

Great Results!
My case was very scary – I had never been through any kind of legal issues and a full blown divorce wasn’t the best way to get my feet wet. Heather represented me in my case for many years and always was able to balance the aggressiveness required with the compassion that I needed. She has a kind staff and I was always able to get ahold of a real person whenever I needed anything. I recently had to use the office again on a modification issue and Amanda Naples was the attorney assigned to my case for the issue and she was impressive also. The attorneys are all well-educated and well-spoken and I have felt protected and well-represented each time I have had to go to court. My experience with the Law Office of Heather Cullen was excellent.

Letter of Reference for Amanda Naples
Amanda Naples represented myself in a custody contest with my ex-spouse, from June of 2015 through July of 2016. My case involved a court ordered 730 Custody Evaluation of my children. Amanda, did a stellar job of representing me. Without getting into the messy details, there are a few things I would like to comment on regarding my representation by Amanda Naples: 1) Amanda is very responsive, and I never had to wait more than a ½ a day to hear back from her. She was quite busy at various times, but always made time to either e-mail me or call me in a timely manner. 2) I was a little reluctant to hire Amanda, as she was only a year or two out of law school when I went to meet with her. But, after our initial meeting, I had a good feeling. And, I made a great decision in hiring her. Although a little on the green side, she is very knowledgeable in her profession. She was very good at researching topics and/or getting 2nd opinions when needed in our case. She never once, made a wrong decision, or made a bad move in my lengthy case as a result. 3) Amanda, has impeccable legal writing skills. She had to write a number of legal documents during my case, and did a marvelous job of capturing what we wanted to say, and putting it in legal context, which was clear, concise, and made sense to me, and more importantly to the judge. 4) Amanda is very able to think on her feet, and react to unexpected situations. One particular example, were a few curveballs thrown at us the morning of our court date by the opposing party. Amanda quickly got on the phone to her peers, as well as did some quick legal research on the subject; and ended up making the opposing counsel look foolish to the Judge, who quickly sided with Amanda and shot down the opposing counsel’s request. 5) Amanda is genuinely concerned about her clients. She surely hears a lot of he said, she said, drama. But, she never treated me simply as a client. She treated me like a human being who was going through a hard time. In closing, there is no doubt that Amanda Naples is simply a terrific attorney. I would bet a lot of money in Vegas, that she ends up being one of the top Family Practice Attorney’s in Riverside County over the next 10 years. And, perhaps the biggest complement I can pay her, as she fought for and helped me win custody of my two daughters is: as a father I would be extremely proud if my daughters grew up to be just like her.

Best Attorneys Hands Down
The Law Office of Heather Cullen provided the best legal representation I could ask for in my divorce case. Heather Cullen, Jillian Duggan-Herd and Amanda Naples all provided legal help on my case and made me feel total protection (like a TV legal team). Attorney Naples provided legal support on my case that was invaluable My divorce is now complete; but, I am keeping Jill and Heather as my attorneys so that I feel safe until my kids are 18 and I don’t have to worry about being alone if I ever have custody issues. Luckily, if I need any legal help I won’t have to travel far now that the Riverside firm has an office in Temecula also. Hands down best attorneys in Riverside County!

Great Lawyer; Bad company
Retained her for 6 months. Ex was trying to move away with my two children. Amanda did a great job. If your looking for an attorney to lie for you or sling mud (like my ex's attorney) don't retain her. I believe she is a moral person that does what is right. The company however, will not work with you. You better have deep pockets. It was $20,000.00 for six months to my ex's $10,000.00 for a year. Their side got a trial and I was out of money. I had to go to trial with no attorney. They got a month to put on their lies and I got one hour. My beautiful children were taken from their top preforming schools and put in low performing by my ex. My ex isn't even home to care for them, it's his horrible girlfriend. They have been in their new schools since Jan. 2018. My 9 year old baby has been suspended several times and has become violent. I understand they had to call the police just today. It's such a sad situation. He also threw a rock at a teacher and a chair at his teacher. My poor children. It's horrific. I do have 50/50 and I have them on the weekends and in the summer, but my little guy is suffering and nothing is worth that. So just make sure you have a lot of money! if you do, she will get the job done.

Response from Amanda Naples May 7, 2018
Thank you for the kind words regarding my representation of you in your matter. I understand that family law matters are difficult and family law matters are emotionally and financially draining. It is difficult to resolve a matter when the opposing party and/or opposing counsel utilizes tactics that are not ethical or moral. However, the Law Office of Heather Cullen is dedicated to providing quality legal representation and regrettably the quality of that service is sometimes overshadowed by legal tactics. Please contact our office privately if you require additional assistance with any of the concerns you have listed herein. It is my sincere hope that remainder of your family law matter has been or will be resolved expeditiously and amicably.
