Amy Lovegren-Tipton is awesome.
My divorce was final in August 2016, after 2 years of lackluster and substandard representation by another attorney whose name I won't mention. I spent most of my time during my divorce waiting for answers, responses to offers, and what should have been client service but almost never was. I called my (previous) attorney countless times, emailed and sent text messages. More often than not I was angry and frustrated with the service (or lack of) that I received. I chased my previous attorney around constantly and was lied to repeatedly. Things were even worse when we went into our mandatory settlement conference when my attorney let me get beat up and battered by my wife's attorney, all while nothing was done to cover me and protect my interests. It was quite possibly one of the worst, most emotionally charged and frustrating things I have ever gone through. For the amount of money I ended up paying my previous attorney once everything was (supposedly) all said and done, I should have fired that attorney a year earlier, but I did not. Stupid me. I was scared. I wanted guidance and council. Isn't that what we SHOULD get? It's what we as clients pay the big bucks for.
Fast forward to October 2016, which was 2 months AFTER my divorce was final. Many issues that SHOULD HAVE been rectified when the final judgement was prepared...we're not. In fact, there were many loose ends and a whole lot of vague "language" that didn't clearly spell out what the proper division of assets should have looked like. Basically the final decree that was stamped by the judge and filed by the court, left entirely too many things open to interpretation and caused alot of issues when it came time to "enforce" the court orders for specific assets. Clearly a problem.
I sought out legal council through the Fresno bar association's attorney referral service. Enter Amy Lovegren-Tipton.
She absolutely rocks! I first met for a consultation in her office. I laid out all my concerns and grievances and within 15 minutes she had answers and an ACTION PLAN. I was so impressed that I retained her on the spot. Within 3 days she had everything handled and all the necessary court forms typed up and ready to file with all the necessary entities. She got on things like a bulldog, made calls, got everything moving so fast it made my head spin.
I so wish I had had Amy Lovegren-Tipton as my divorce attorney instead of the ineffective slacker I had hired originally. She kicks butt and takes names.
Hire her without any reservations because she'll handle your business and take care of things in a timely manner, like a pro.
Her communication and follow up is phenomenal.
