Ms Franklin Bihary handled my divorce proceedings in 2015, and I cannot speak highly enough of her. She was always professional and very responsive to my emails and phone calls. She always kept me in touch with progress and developments. It is totally due to Ms Franklin Bihary that I was awarded a generous financial settlement, a workable parenting plan, and a favorable asset allocation. I was particularly impressed that she dealt with some contentious issues with patience and firmness, and was a strong negotiator. I am very much indebted to her, for making a stressful process as painless as possible. I highly recommend her as a divorce lawyer.

I had been working on my own without an attorney when I found out my ex had gotten an attorney without telling me as a way to get the upper hand. Upon engaging Amy, she quickly assessed my situation and immediately knew where risk was. She was thorough and pragmatic and always working toward a long-term solution that put the kids first, something I very much value.
Additionally, divorce is extremely emotional so having someone compassionate that you can count on in your corner is critical. I very much appreciated Amy's complete responsiveness and the fact that she collaborated with me every step of the way. I truly felt like I had a partner during the worst time of my life and would highly recommend her.

Amy has the knowledge to handle your case in the best possible manner. She will inform you of your rights and be responsive to all your questions. She will keep you informed of all pertinent information regarding your case. She will fight for your rights.
Susan Carroll, Family Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. Amy is a knowledgeable, tenacious, and skilled advocate. I have referred personal friends to her. She has a thorough understanding of the statues and has worked with lawmakers in Olympia for years to improve the laws affecting children and families. Her work ethic and compassion make her an excellent attorney for her clients.
Lorraine Rimson, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Amy and I were opposing counsel in a difficult case with sensitive issues. We stayed focused on the important issues -- the well-being of a young child -- and were able to manuever what could have been a litigious and expensive road efficiently and well. I very much appreciated the way in which she balanced advocacy for her client and sensitivity toward all of the difficult emotional issues that were involved.
