Compassionate, dedicated advocacy
Amanda was my attorney throughout an incredibly acrimonious and long drawn out divorce process. From the moment she first took on my case until the judges final decree I felt supported, protected and advised with sound counsel. My nature is one of compromise and peace keeping, leaving me I’ll equipped to meet the aggressive and dishonest approach my ex took towards our child custody conflict. Gratefully, I had Amanda by my side through it all. She managed to be assertive and stalwart in her defense against the false claims being thrown at me while simultaneously respecting my desire to not enter into a mud slinging war with the mother of my child. I really appreciated her ability to recognize and understand the human element of such emotionally charged legal proceedings while still maintaining a strong sense of professionalism. She talked me through the rationale behind various approaches we could take to the proceedings, always showing me my options and allowing me to decide how to proceed. I felt part of the process. That I was working with her as a team. In determining something as near to my heart as my relationship with my child, I cannot emphasize how grateful I was to have my voice and desires heard and respected as our legal course of action was decided upon. I would not have made it through such an excruciating time in my life with out Amanda’s compassionate counsel. I highly recommend her as your ally as you navigate what is undoubtedly a difficult time in your life.

Child Custody
Going through a separation is hard enough but having to go through it when a child is involved makes it 10x harder. While still grieving and being so confused on what to do next I contacted Amanda’s office to schedule a consult. During the consult Amanda was extremely mindful, understanding and patient, she talked me through exactly what needed to happen and even provided me with options on how she would be able to help depending on how much I was wanting to put into the process. After thinking it over I hired Amanda and asked that she handle everything and she delivered! The process was so easy and she walked me through it the entire time. Amanda’s communication was amazing and she made sure to respond to any questions I had either same day or the following business day. While working with Amanda I could tell she truly cared about me, when I would have guilt about any part of the situation she would listen and give me the best advice, she never pushed me to do anything I truly didn’t want to do. I can’t thank Amanda and her team enough for helping me through the hardest situation I have ever encountered in my life. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that is needing help. As they won’t be disappointed.

Without hesitation I give Amanda my highest recommendation
Could not have asked for a better Attorney to help me with my case. Amanda is detail-oriented and also able to see the bigger picture. She allayed many of my concerns during my case, and brought to light many different considerations along the way. She is calm, understanding but takes the bull by the horns, and fights for her clients. She gave me such an immense amount of peace, when dealing with a very stressful case. She and her team were always there to help explain my options and key decisions for my case.

Compassionate Professionalism
Amanda was attentive and patient in helping me navigate a complex family law case. She was kind but also direct. I was grateful to feel I had someone in my corner who would protect me both legally and emotionally during the dissolution process. She is respected by judges, mediators, and other attorneys, and her strong reputation helped smooth out and streamline the mediation process. I highly recommend her expertise.

Exceptional Attorney!
Amanda Gamble accomplished what every attorney that I spoke with or worked my case told me was impossible, she changed an existing, extremely unfair, parenting plan and won 50/50 visitation and custody rights for my son and I. She effectively countered a web of lies and distortions and had a horrible and fraudulent CASA report set aside for ‘inherent bias’ against me. When the other parent kept dragging me back into court with further false claims Amanda won judgements against her for doing so! I can’t say enough about her wisdom and effectiveness. Additionally, it seems to have had a positive effect on the other party’s willingness to agree to work out issues between us on our child’s behalf. For the first time in many years I feel I was heard and treated fairly in court.

Breath of fresh air!
I hired Amanda in the middle of my divorce after having a previous attorney that failed to support me in the way I needed and dug me further into a hole. I was recommended Amanda by a friend who said she would fight the entire way for me, not back down and do everything she could to support me on what my needs were. She did all of those and beyond. The entire firm was always good with getting back to me in a timely manner, compared to my previous attorney and never getting any information. She was very clear in explaining the process moving forward, and always asking questions to fully understand my situation. I would highly recommend her to help you with complicated divorces including children. She was very knowledgeable in all aspects that helped me know what to expect in process. I feel like she cared about my future with my kids, versus some attorneys who just expect money and drag you along the process to make it more painful, and not take your emotions into account. Thanks again Amanda :)

The Best Lawyer I've Come Across in Seattle
Amanda has been nothing short of an amazing lawyer. For my divorce, I initially started with a different lawyer who was non responsive and didn’t seem to have any care or concern for my case. Two months later, we were in the same spot that we’d started in with little to no movement. When I talked to Amanda, she listened to my concerns, cared about what I wanted, and did everything she could to get our desired outcome. Amanda has impeccable negotiation skills, is responsive, detail oriented, and tough when required. After I started working with her, I felt the weight lifted off my shoulders. She kept me in the loop on every communication and was consistently very timely with her responses, so I knew I could rely on her to get the job done. A few weeks later, our case was resolved in my favor. I cannot thank Amanda enough and would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a divorce attorney.

Best Lawyer for child custody or divorce if you find yourself in that position
I had a specifically hard and complex case. It went to trial after attempts to meditate. Amanda was very clear with communication and plan the entire time! She was in my corner 100 percent and never gave me any poor advice threw this very hard time! She continued to fight even when odds were down. I got the judgment i wanted after being told by other lawyers it was impossible!

Professional, compassionate, and effective attorney
Amanda is very knowledgeable and compassionate. Her experience with family law is evident. She is a first class attorney with integrity. I wish I had worked with her to settle my divorce - she helped me (after my divorce had already been finalized for several years) with one item that had been lingering from the settlement and with parenting plan deviations that had cropped up.

A superior advocate and advisor
Amanda guided me a through a difficult divorce with significant monetary, child custody and fitness issues. She took the time to understand our family and provided me with excellent counsel on which to base my decisions. Not only did she finalize the divorce as I had hoped, but she did so efficiently and with an eye towards minimizing the cost.

Excellent Advocate!
I was referred to Amanda after the retirement of my previous long-time attorney. Amanda fought hard on my behalf, and proved skilled at both written and oral argument. Despite a difficult situation, including multiple lawyers hired by the opposing party, Amanda was able to achieve a favorable outcome for my daughter. I will continue to use Amanda for future legal needs, and recommend her to others without reservation.

Goldberg and Jones
Amanda Gamble represented me through a very difficult separation. My ex's behavior was absolutely ridiculous and incredibly vindictive throughout the entire court process. Amanda was always there to answer questions and deal with any issues both big and small. The court process is very difficult for a male, but I think my lawyer did an excellent job of fighting for me.

THE BEST OF THE BEST!
Trusting Amanda with my divorce and child custody was THE BEST decision I could have ever made. My divorce was extremely stressful and Amanda was really great at keeping me grounded and calm. She helped explain the process and made me feel comfortable with the terms that were decided. I got everything I wanted and more when we went to court. She listened to my concerns and the things I really wanted, helped me to prioritize what was best for kids and what was realistic in terms of our situation and truly fought for me in court. I felt heard and validated the entire time. Family law is messy and hard to deal with, but she makes it look easy! I highly recommend her!

The Right Person for the Job!
Ms. Amanda Gamble is a person of sound character. A consummate professional who is competent, confident, compassionate, and totally committed to the wellbeing of her clients. Her disposition, demeanor and discourse exudes positivity and forward thinking. She is a humble and honest attorney who was patient in trial preparation and poised in court presentation. For more than 20 years, I have been privileged to serve the people of our great nation by way of the military. Amanda’s flexibility and experience enabled us to successfully navigate divorce and child custody proceedings while overcoming challenges with distance, time zones, and travel. She was definitely the right person for the job! In my darkest hour she was a source of strength, encouragement, and assuredness. These enduring qualities led me to believe that we would undoubtedly succeed; and we did! She endured many sacrifices to represent me; but she did so willingly because she genuinely cared. I immensely appreciate Ms. Amanda Gamble and I am truly blessed, honored, grateful to have her as my attorney. Thank you, Amanda. You are the best! Jude

Amanda Gamble is the lawyer you should hire!
Amanda handled my child custody modification case. She was always very thorough, keeping me posted of what was going on every step of the way. She takes the time to understand your case, which in my case had been going on for years. She is always available and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Nobody wants to have to hire an attorney and hopefully I won't ever have to again, but if I do, I'll definitely contact Amanda again. My case was settled amicably and both sides walked away at the end satisfied with the outcome. What could have been a terrible time in my life was made better thanks to Amanda. I always had full confidence in her and she didn't take any crap from opposing counsel. I will recommend her to anyone looking for a family law attorney in the future. I'm so glad I found her.

Not only has she completely taken on one of the hardest experiences in my life, she's so positive and encouraging. On my worst days, she always has the most perfect words. She's done everything she can to make this process go as smooth as possible, and she pays great attention to detail. I have no doubt that I will get the most desired outcome out of my divorce.

Wonderful Lawyer
Amanda was great in helping my fiancé and I fight our legal battle with our old apartment complex. She made sure we were not taken advantage of as well as helping getting our money back. Even though she did not represent us she was great at helping us with all of our questions and concerns. Amanda was great at getting back to us quickly by text, calling or even email.
