Truly cares about her clients
As a client of Amy's it has been my experience that she is a strong advocate regarding the importance of co-parenting and will strive to assist you in obtaining increased time with your child(ren). Amy possesses a combination of friendliness, professionalism and experience and her personal attention to cases helps to makes a difficult and stressful issue much easier to deal with. If you are a client of Amy's she is approachable and will keep you included in the intricacies of your case as it proceeds. I would recommend her if you have to deal with matters associated with family law.

Great and Professional Lawyer!!!!!!!!!!!
Amy did an awesome job representing me in my child support hearing. Amy knew her stuff and explained everything to me so I knew what to expect. Amy got me more than I expected and was very pleased overall with her representation. I would recommend Amy to all my friends if they needed family law help.

BEST Lawyer in Fresno County!
I hired Amy Lopez for a Divorce, Child Custody and Ex Parte Orders. I needed a Temporary emergency (ex parte) order because my ex-wife was unstable and on drugs and left in the middle of the night with my two daughters to a different County 5 hours away. Amy Lopez immediately filed an ex parte order to the Court to get my daughters back and I received a hearing date within days. I went to my Court Hearing for the ex parte and Amy Lopez addressed the issue with a Firm Professionalism that moved the Court to get me FULL SOLE CUSTODY of my Daughters! There is no other Lawyer in the County that’s going to get your ex parte granted by a Judge. Her Court Room skills, knowledge and experience with the ex parte is the best you’ll ever find. She knows exactly what needs to be done in order for you to win in Court. My daughters mean everything to me, now I have sole custody of them, and Amy Lopez made that happen!

Competent, Compassionate & Knowledgeable
Amy is the one you want on your side! She is a great lawyer, she’s passionate about her job, great communication skills and is a good listener. Can’t express enough how compassionate she was with my case. She was never too busy for me, met with me immediately, not once did she make me feel rushed and always answered my questions. She’s worth every penny, especially when she made the petitioner and witness hesitate on their statements!

Amy knows what to go for so you have a better chance of winning
Amy won everything I asked for, you can trust her judgment. I did have some issues hearing back from her, especially when the court system reopened and she was flooded with cases. That's understandable. I do recommend her for her deep knowledge of the Fresno court system and the experience to know what to ask for that will give you the best shot at winning your case.

Supportive and caring
Mrs. Lopez has been on my divorce case for over a year. She provided excellent service to protect my kids and I. Her concern and compassion for my kids was what made me so comfortable. She supported my requests and worked hard to get me to where I am today in my case. I respect her honesty and dedication. She has helped me through the process of divorce and continues to guide me through the final stages.

Never left my side...
We just had a custody hearing this past week and Amy was absolutely wonderful. She never left my side. She sat with me throughout the hearing and even stayed with me as I waited for mediation. I truly felt like she was not only my attorney representing me but was looking out for my child's best interest. She made me feel comfortable from the first day I met her and worked hard to win our case. I highly recommend Amy for your custody needs.

Highly recommend Amy Lopez!!! She works wonders!
Amy really works wonders! She was able to help me through a nasty divorce to my now (thank the lord) Ex-Wife. After continuous harassment from the crazy woman, I stumbled upon Amy Lopez's office. Being a big man, you can probably imagine my embarrassment needing help in making the harassment stop, but Amy was professional and put my worries to rest. She was able to file a restraining order right away against my ex. not just for me but also for my dog Ollie!!! She was able get a 3 year restraining against the ex and since then, me and Ollie have no longer been living in fear. THANK YOU AMY.

Awesome divorce attorney!
I retained Ms. Lopez to handle my divorce. She was very attentive to me and she was always prepared for our hearings. My divorce case was very combative in the beginning and Ms Lopez always made me feel comfortable and ready for our hearings. She even prepared me for mediation when I was trying to get custody of my children. I ended up with full custody of both of my children after the opposing party tried to play games with visitation. I would highly recommend Ms. Lopez to my family and friends to handle divorce and custody issues. She will definitely fight for you and give you great advice that is useful. I am so glad I trusted Ms. Lopez because she was right about so many things. I will always be greatful that I found such a knowledgable attorney. She was awesome!

Must hire Amy L Lopez!!!
Amy was my attorney in a child custod matter and helped me get custody of my child. I cannot tell you how great she was in keeping me updated and in the loop. There was not one time when I thought we were going to lose; she is confident and that really showed during mediation and at trial, and it helped reassure me through the custody fight.

Divorce and restraining order
Amy is the best!!! She and her office staff handled my case with such professionalism. I went through an awful/ painful divorce, Ms Lopez took care of me. I intaliiay got a restraining order that was for 14 days, but after speaking with Ms Lopez she and her staff encouraged me to get a longer one. Ms Lopez went to court with me, she did all the talking and explained to the judge why I needed a 5 year restaining order. To my advantage I was granted a 5 year restraining that even included my dog. I 100% recommend Ms Lopez, she is confident and is awesome to watch in court, so glad she is my attorney. Her secretary Juanita is also very dependable and easy to talk to as well, she always kept me in the loop. You won't be disappointed.

I used Mrs. Lopez for my Step-parent Adoption. She was everything I needed her to be. VERY down to earth, and understanding. I could tell her anything. She got the job done and at a affordable price. My advise would be just dont hound her and plan on it taking a while. It will get done.
