Effective and Trusted!
When searching for an attorney to handle a personal and emotional matter, the need to find someone who is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate can be a difficult task. I found all of these characteristics and more in choosing and hiring Aimee Ashby Flanagan to handle my dissolution of marriage. During our initial phone call, Aimee and I discussed the particulars of my marriage and as uncomfortable as it was for me to approach the conversation, Aimee's calm and comforting demeanor quickly settled my unsure nerves. Upon our first face to face meeting (during the Covid -19 pandemic), Aimee politely answered each of my many questions, took ample time discussing the divorce process and welcomed my feedback. Never was I rushed into signing an agreement or pressured to hurry the process. Her communication, whether by email, telephone or in person was always articulate and excellent and her response time throughout the duration of my case was immediate an on-point. She continually provided status updates, which I appreciated greatly. I was made aware of any email communication between she and my future ex-husband; each time impressed with her professionalism and expertise. When the time came to file the final documents with the court, Aimee made sure I was 100% satisfied with the judgment agreement, spent ample time interpreting each document and again, answered my many questions. The decision to end a marriage can be direful and as to be expected, emotional. Aimee has a keen way of not only listening; but, reassuring that you will be all right. Any fear I experienced at the beginning of this process has transpired to an overwhelming sense of relief and gratitude. I highly recommend Aimee Ashby Flanagan. She is simply outstanding!

Aimee handled my divorce with warm human understanding and superb legal expertise.
My divorce had a number of uncommon situations that might easily have baffled another attorney. Aimee not only navigated the difficult situations for me, but she also handled the divorce in such a manner that we resolved it completely with my ex-spouse as harmonious as possible. Most important, Aimee provided me with warm human understanding, coupled with her superb legal expertise. I could not have hoped for a better outcome and was so lucky to have the very best attorney.

Aimee is AMAZING—very professional and honest!!
The Universe was working in my favor when I met Aimee a few weeks before I had to go back to court on a spousal support issue! When I consulted with her, she told me what I could do myself, what she would do for me if I chose to hire her and how much it would cost. She was prompt and professional in all of our communications throughout the process of filing the papers and going to court with me! She handled my ex like a charm and got him to agree to what I wanted that day, even when he originally wanted a continuance! I believe Aimee is an attorney of the highest integrity! I have already recommended her to several people and would highly recommend her to anyone in need! I am so happy I met her! Thank you Aimee!

An experienced and consumate professional
Ms. Flanagan has a great deal of experience and helped me understand and navigate the difficutlies of family court and obtain a positive outcome for my family. She is also very professional and is good at keeping a civil dialog between us and the other party. I have also received good advice from her and she has helped me in the past take a step back, calm down, and make the best decision for me and my family with a clear head. She makes a consistent effort to be available when I have questions or to follow-up with me if she isn't immediately available. She is clear and concise with her billing and honest and up front about what I may be charged for. I have recommended her to two of my friends so far and I intend to keep her as my counsel as long as I can.

Great & Respectable Attorney!!
I have been with my attorney for several years and she has really gone above and beyond for my case. Aimee is tough, she is very respectable and has succeeded in getting the best results in court. She is truthful and honest. As my attorney she guides me in the right direction when it comes to difficult situations in dealing with the other parent. I am so happy that I have Aimee as my attorney and better yet grateful that she is doing what is in the best interest for my child.

Wonderful Attorney and Would Highly Recommend
This was my second time working with Ms. Flanagan. The first case was regarding a parental rights termination, which she processed so quickly and smoothly. Due to the success of that case, we decided to go for a legal name change. Ms. Flanagan processed and submitted all of the proper paperwork and accompanied me to the courthouse to finalize the name change. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a family lawyer. She will find the smoothest and least time-consuming avenue for you to take to approach your case. She's very friendly, intelligent, trustworthy, and genuinely cares about your case and the child(ren) involved.

TWO THUMBS UP!!!
I HIGHLY recommend Aimee as a truly caring, compassionate & skilled family law attorney. She made a VERY complicated, years long divorce and custody battle so much more bearable for me and my 3 small children. Not only was she always available, personally calling me back anytime I needed her assistance, I felt that she TRULY cared about me and my family. That meant a lot to me. She handled our hearings and pleadings with expert skill, and I never felt confused over what happened or unprepared for what was to come. I could never have survived the last several years without her at my side! She over-delivers. Two thumbs way up!

Wonderful and experienced attorney
It was a pleasure working with Ms. Flanagan in regards to a parental rights termination case. She was extremely helpful and took the time to explain every option and recourse I had available. She listened to my concerns and really fought for what is right, fair, and in the best interests of my child. I had spoken to a few other attorneys before I had a consultation with Ms. Flanagan and was really pleased with her approach to the case and the clarity with which she presented the facts. I would highly recommend her and am looking forward to working with her again in regards to a name change petition.

Aimee is an assertive attorney who knows how to represent her clients in very emotional situations. She's thorough, very knowledgeable about family law and has a great game plan to attack the case. In addition, she was very compassionate with her client, who was going through a hard time and was very emotional. She showed a lot of patience and put her whole heart and soul into defending her client, working late and doing any action necessary to defend the case. I would recommend her highly."
