Mrs. Amy R Lovegren-Tipton Is an excellent, brilliant, knowledgeable and dependable attorney!!!
Amy is the type of attorney who you would want on your side. I had fired several attorneys before I found Amy. Amy was able to do in three months what the rest of them could not do in three years. She is incrediably ethical, orginized and systematic. She has the ability to smell the opposing attorney's brown stuff from many miles away. Amy is sincere, frank and unapologetic to her client's Golliath. She continues to save my life. Thank you Avvo for sharing this fine attorney's contact info. The Valley is fortunate to have this caliber of an attorney.

Integrity, honest.
Atty Tipton-Lovegren is very diligent and attentative. She is very honest and understands that it's all about the children involved. She fights for truth and for the child's best interest. Her staff is amazing and professional.

Words can’t describe how good of a lawyer she really is.
Let’s start off by saying Amy is the most amazing, kind, professional and courageous woman I have ever met. I’ve actually never been through something like this in my life before. I was scared and nervous to find someone that was going to represent me and take my case after my children had been swindled right from under me. Amy heard my case and immediately took me under her wing when I was at my lowest! Down and out & so stressed because I felt like I did the worst thing a mother could have done. Not protect her children the way I needed too. I needed someone to stand up for me and amy did just that! She got my children back on an ex parte and won the sole custody back of my children that was previously granted by a judge. stupidly I agreed with my narcissistic kids father to do joint custody. While having a domestic violence restraining order in place. Which to me was the worst thing that I could have possibly done in my eyes. But Amy made me feel so comfortable and let me know as humans we do make mistakes and she knew exactly what laws applied to my situation and was able to win my children back for me within a WEEK of me hiring her. That’s impressive. I can’t say how grateful I am for her and her team! Mrs. Tipton is smart, knowledgeable and get straight to the point of things. She will get you exactly what you need and ask for. I have no disappointments! I’m so happy I chose Mrs. Tipton to represent me in family court because she knows what she’s talking about and she has the proof and credentials to back it up. I did not leave that court room disappointed in fact I was ecstatic because it lifted a huge weight off my shoulders like ahhhh I can actually breath again and that is all to Mrs. Tipton. If you’re thinking about hiring her do it I promise you won’t be disappointed and you will get the victory with her!!! Thank you so much Amy for everything you’re truly amazing at what you do.

Child custody / Temp restraining order/ Child Support
When I first contacted Tipton Legal it was only two weeks before my first hearing. Amy was able to take on my case, although it was short notice. Tipton Legal made sure to contact me before any hearing or court date. I was also given a direct email to Amy to reach as-well. Any time I had any questions or concerns, Tipton legal has been hands on when it comes to being able to reach. Even after business hours. 10/10 when it comes to communication or if there was any change in court dates. Mrs.Tipton never missed court. The outcome of court was better than I expected & I was granted everything I asked for. Tipton legal is the best and did everything to reassure me my case was in the proper hands.

I had tried for years to get the court to force my ex-husband to start paying me my alimony arrears because I needed a car, but I kept failing on my own. I finally talked to Attorney Amy Tipton and she offered to help me. She would go to court with me and she got a wage garnishment against him. I had been receiving my money on a monthly basis for a year and a half. He claimed he had gotten fired from his job in Dec. 2020, so Amy filed paperwork to garnish his Social Security instead. I should begin receiving money again this month. Had he paid me what and when the court had ordered from the beginning, I wouldn't be touching his Social Security. Thanks to Amy, I'm not struggling to make ends meet anymore.

Very knowledgeable, honest and fair!
I went to A. Tipton’s office due to lack of progress and gross overcharges by my previous lawyers office in Dinuba. Ms Tipton and Michael Shaddix understood the legal issues I had. They came up with a plan and solved my problems within a short period of time. The are genuine down to earth people. They understood my budgetary concerns and were able to give me different scenarios and costs up front. I will be forever grateful for their help and support. I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of professional legal help!

Outstanding Attorney
I could not be more pleased with Amy’s representation in my Divorce. She and her staff are extremely knowledgeable and very professional. I was in need of a non-biased attorney outside of Tulare County who was willing to represent me against an influential family. Amy exceeded my expectations.

Compassionate, knowledgeable, advocate
Alone. Terrified. Helpless. This was how I felt trying to get shared custody of my kids and going through my divorce until I was referred to Amy by my father. She's been such a strong advocate and advisor during my darkest of times and has helped me immensely. She's been incredibly patient with my legal naivety, and empathetic in my struggles. I am grateful to God for Amy's role in my divorce and custody. Besides her professional competency, she's genuinely a wonderful person with a very compassionate heart. I'd have no other represent me with any future legal needs.

On behalf of attorney Amy R. Lovegren-Tipton
I cannot imagine having a better advocate and being more professionally and skillfully represented than I was by my attorney, Amy Lovegren-Tipton. She not only conducted my affairs in a timely and professional manner, but did so with empathy and kindness that made it feel very personable and comforting. Her fees were more than reasonable and she was very prompt in answering emails, patient in answering questions and sorting things out for me when I was feeling confused, and making me feel that my concerns equally weighted on her as well. I haven't had a lot of experience in the courts or with lawyers in general, and my friends have told me stories that lead me to believe this kind of experience is not the usual one people who unfortunately need a legal counsel walk away with. In some cases, I have heard it can be "nightmarish." So I am walking away very grateful that this was not the case with me. Far from it. I will have no problem whatsoever referring my friends to her in the future, for the very best in legal help. I would just add that if I could choose a word to best sum up Amy as a person it would be "humanity." In such a heart rending, difficult profession as that of being a "divorce lawyer" she has not lost her humanity. it remains intact and palpable throughout her dealings with her clients, who never stop being people to Amy. I will have difficulty ever forgetting Amy both as my attorney and advocate, and as a friend. Dr. F. Peter. B

Caring, knowledgeable, tough
Amy is incredibly caring. She understands the law and the systems involved in the processes. She understands the importance of your issue and how she can help you. She has an excellent memory, which is highly critical. I never had to repeat facts. She knew my case and situations and always could recall the facts as if they were her own. Amy would dig and dig for case law and precedent when needed, which was so important in some of our situations. She always makes time for me no matter how minor the issue. Amy is a great partner when I need her to be, but she can also take the lead when I couldn’t be more involved. her staff is also intelligent, kind, and helpful. I now consider Amy a friend.

Excellent attorney
I hired Amy for my child custody case and then later for my divorce. She was at every hearing and explained the process to me so there were no surprises. She was able to get me exactly what I wanted and was always available via email if something came up. She was also able to locate and have my ex husband served after several years of me looking for him. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney

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. Thanks Amy!

Excellent!
Amy and her team, especially Michael, are excellent. They were able to get what I have been told is a near impossible injunction. Every police officer that has responded to enforce the injunction has told me they have never seen anything like it. I would highly recommend!

Dissolution of Marriage
I hired Webb & Bordson to represent my interests in my divorce. Navigating the emotional and difficult choices of a divorce is never easy. But. . . Amy Lovegren-Tipton provided me with sound legal advice, encouragement and professionalism for which I will be forever grateful. She responded to my questions quickly and kept me informed throughout the process. I can't imagine being represented by anyone else.

Employee Claims
When we realized we had a disgruntled employee our team scheduled a (free) consultation. Their team started working on our case right away. We were amazed by how knowledgeable their team was in California labor laws. Ms. Tipton was always prompt in her responses, offering suggested routes of closure to the dispute. After the issue was settled we had some remaining questions concerning future employment practices for our company. Ms. has been helpful in guiding us down the right path. We recommend Webb & Bordson, APC to any business in California.

Most Difficult cases ever
In 25 years of property management we had never had such difficult cases. Our property was being used by a gang to run all thier criminal activity. It effected the quaility of life for all of our resident. Amy and her firm were the only law office who I could get to take the cases. And I contacted alot of them. Here we are 7 months later and all the criminals are gone. Our resident children can play outside and our residents are happy, City police department is happy and we have them to thank .
