Review Araceli Amaya
  • Amazing Araceli

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Araceli is thoroughly exceptional. I wound up in a highly contentious divorce and child custody matter. Early in the proceedings I was working with another attorney and realized I needed stronger representation. After interviewing several attorneys it was clear she was high above the rest. Here’s what I love about her: 1) Exceptional knowledge – she brought new perspectives and recommendations (not presented by prior attorney) that supported my case. 2) Oversight – She had an uncanny ability to retain and recall the facts of my case. She was always able to pick up where we left off. No matter her total caseload, I felt like I was her main client. 3) Supportive relationship – She kept me optimistic and uplifted me. I’ve become highly aware that other attorneys do not have this level of capacity. 4) Gravitas – She is strong and confident and will always angle for win-win solutions. My ex-husband and his attorney were more interested in steamrolling. She effectively pushed back and she knows how to ‘show teeth’ when called for. 5) Personality - She is a pure enjoy to work which was so refreshing and uplifting throughout. What I’ve learned from her will serve me a lifetime. I’m beyond thankful and I highly recommend.

    Araceli assisted me and represented me through my divorce from start to finish.

    Besides her knowledge and professionalism, Araceli impressed me with her continuous focus on children’s best interest and her ability to find win-win situations – negotiating with the opposing party and being both collaborative and assertive as needed to drive the entire process to resolution.

    Highly recommended to anyone looking for an excellent family law attorney.

    I went into this process not knowing what to expect and thought I wouldn't be able to get out of it what I had expected. Because of her experience, strength and knowledge, I am very happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Araceli to anyone who needs an attorney. Additionally, her paralegal support was very helpful and listened to me and understood my expectations from the beginning.

    Again, I highly recommend Araceli and her team.

    Araceli helped me with a relocation custody case. She knows her stuff - she is well-versed in the laws surrounding these issues. She is extremely responsive, answering emails late in the evening at times. She is also caring and reassuring. Araceli strikes the right balance between advising and supporting, which is just what I needed. For example, there were a few items I wanted to push for, and she advised me that I was not likely to prevail but that she would help me if I wanted to go for it. I felt like I could make my own decisions. And when she knew something would be an exercise in tilting at windmills, she let me know. She is also extremely proactive, so our side wound up steering the process. In the end we went to mediation and came to a settlement I was very satisfied with. It was a very emotional journey for me and Araceli always had my back. I felt fortunate to have her as my lawyer and highly recommend her!

    From my initial consultation through the end of our work together, Araceli made me feel comfortable, confident, and let me know what to expect. She is a true advocate, and I would gladly work with her again.

    Araceli is an excellent attorney. Not only did she help me and my kids get settled during a very painful and sudden split from my ex-husband, she provided continual, sound legal advice that gave me peace of mind in the face of some very difficult decisions. I always felt as though she had my kids' best interest at heart, and helped me focus on the big picture. I appreciate that she spoke to my ex-husband's attorney with kindness, and never made inflammatory remarks or accusations. She represented me and the law very well. I would highly recommend Araceli to anyone who needs quality family law services.

    Araceli has been very supportive in my difficult journey. She handheld me through the process and provided me assurance when I was uncertain or felt threatened. She is knowledgeable but not pushy at all. She left room for me to work on my own pace yet made sure that all the basics were covered. I would strongly recommend her.

    This lawyer listens intently and her experience drives conversations to what matters. Araceli eliminates factors that won't necessarily have merit and she is available when it counts, I had an unplanned and time-sensitive sticky situation that she made time to address thoroughly. I was impressed with her ethics and focus on solutions and the path forward. I definitely recommend Araceli.
