About Amanda

SUCCESSFUL FAMILY REORGANIZATION

I help couples resolve their disputes, whether in the midst of divorce or post-divorce issues, with dignity and respect.  

 

Recognizing the value of preserving civility in the legal process, particularly when working with children and families, I have been trained to assist families through divorce using the collaborative law model.  In this alternative to litigation through the court system, parties agree to work through their dispute respectfully, to achieve a durable agreement. 

 

Every family is different, and the collaborative model may not fit every individual situation.  While I believe changes in family structure are often best resolved by negotiating settlement, I also recognize that sometimes court intervention is appropriate and necessary.  I am comfortable in court and will provide zealous representation, when such action is required.

Excellent .Customer Service
My case took longer than some and I had many, many questions and bumps along the way. Amanda and Corie always made me feel like I was the most important client they had.

Prenup
Amanda represented me for my prenup. She was thorough, concise, and very detail oriented. I felt protected and that she was really looking out for my best interests. I definitely recommend her to anyone needing strong representation.

Positive and Honest, you won’t be disappointed, Godsend.
Very kind and compassionate about my situation. Got my children the week after she took my case to the court. Very positive and precise on her move. Treated me like her family instead a client. Won the full custody in a very very very short time. Protected me from evil tactics from my ex wife. Thank you for revealing the truth, and you absolutely made a difference.

Excellent Customer Service
I had a somewhat unusual case that required a firm but measured approach. Amanda and her staff were absolutely wonderful. Amanda had a thorough knowledge not only of the law but of the legal ramifications of each option she presented. We are very pleased with the counsel we received and would recommend Amanda to anyone.

Can't thank her enough!
Amanda has been representing us for almost two years now, through a very frustrating and lengthy divorce with a ex-wife who won't quit! We have no idea what we would of done without Amanda on our team. She is very knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and confident. There were times when we were so frustrated and Amanda always steered us in the right direction. She knows what battles to fight and which ones to leave alone. Divorce and child custody issues are stressful enough to continually go through ,but Amanda always knew how to ease some of that stress. There's no better feeling than having the utmost confidence in your attorney. Amanda was always there whenever we had questions or needed clarification. She's hands down one of the best around!

Great Lawyer
Amanda went above and beyond to help us in every way when it came to our custody issues. She was there for us every step of the way. Her knowledge and expertise helped us at every turn. She is a wonderful person and even better lawyer to have on your side. Thank you ever so much Amanda for your time and effort.

Excellent, trustworthy and very genuine lawyer
Amanda has been our lawyer since 2006, helping my husband with an ongoing battle with his ex-wife over their children. Amanda has represented us numerous times in court over the last 5 yrs. She has been through 2 settlement conferences with us, successfully helped us modify 2 parenting plans as well as winning make up time for my husband and his children after "someone" felt they were above the law and could make up their own rules. Amanda could have gone to court many more times, but she always made sure we fought(and always won) the battles that were significant and in the best interst of our kids. Never was it in the best interest of her. We would recommend Amanda a thousand times over.
