Practice areas

My law practice is a concierge practice offering unbundled legal services for life transition. We focus on life and legal problem solving and prevention. I’m a not-so-average attorney offering an unparalleled presence during transitions. In fact, though I get the legal stuff done, it’s the smallest part of what I do.

As a Usui Reiki Master, my goal with everyone I work with is to proceed in harmony despite the sometimes rocky nature of change. Sometimes, I work with businesses seeking to improve service delivery, and at other times, I work with traumatized people who are in the process of reclaiming life.

I intentionally keep my hourly rates affordable and I do this by foregoing the typical trappings of the legal profession. I don’t have a fancy office, do my best to stay out of suits, and I work virtually, in the community, or at client spaces.

I believe the law is an important part of our lives, and I choose to contribute to my profession by empowering and coaching people. There are a gazillion litigators happy to take the money, but there are few who seek to give the law back to the people.

Got a conundrum and need somebody to anchor one end of the rope while you build that bridge? Give a call! I want in on that.

Mindful decision with legal precision
Aimee is a master problem-solver. She is able to meet you where you're at, map out where you want to go and which legal options are available to you. I've reached out to Aimee for legal consulting with everything from giving an eviction notice to how to structure a new business/Enterprise and she not only offered mindful options but encouraged me to make more mindful decisions as well. Aimee combines a mindful approach with nimble, legal precision. What more could you want?

Great Consulting Attorney
I hired Aimee as a consulting attorney on my family law case. She was extremely responsive, kind, and most importantly very knowledgeable. I would recommend Aimee to anyone looking to hire a consulting attorney.

Simply the best!!!
I hired Aimee as a consulting attorney. I was representing myself prose. After being jerked around by over priced attorneys I was almost about to give up. But then I found Aimee. She was the most down to earth easy to talk to attorney I’ve ever met. She wasn’t just an attorney she became a friend. She listened. She never gouged me for ridiculous amounts of money. She walked me through everything and held my hand. Her name says it all. A god damn CHAMPION!!! Ted

Everything and anything
Aimee helped me through thy most stressful moment in my life that I could not even process what I was reading on a document through all the errors I already made that she helped me correct. Aimee is professional in her area of family law, reliable and attentive in the care that I needed throughout my case by keeping up with court dates and appointments with other outside professionals and most importantly, to me, in emotional support. I wouldn’t be where I am without her.

Compassionate, professional, and caring in helping us process and move forward!
I hired Aimee to represent our family with a recent death in our family that resulted in us needing a probate attorney to deal with the Estate. She has been professional, compassionate and caring as she walks us through the steps of how to proceed. With multiple family members involved, in and out of state, she has been able to guide us through the legal steps necessary and to prepare in a way that has been calm and proficient. She allows us multiple opportunities and different ways of communicating to ensure we understand the process, but also reliable in showing us laws and statute with reasons for why things need to proceed in a certain order. Our family is thankful for the opportunity to work with Aimee, and grateful for her compassion and professionalism in this stressful and untimely death of the family.

My Go-to
Aimee Champion provides prompt, informative and educational insight regarding the law. She’s my go-to resource for any law related questions. I highly recommend calling Aimee if you need a friend in the law.

Empowering!
Aimee R. Welch is an outstanding attorney. Her kind heart and knowledge continue to guide me through custody questions, parenting plan, and the overall messiness of divorce. Welch understood my parenting concerns and especially my concerns with the multi-cultural differences of child. She has been calming and careful in the post-divorce phase, as it seems there are typically continuing non-court processes that go along with the division of assets and debts e.g. monetary settlement, small property pickup, effective communication, two-party power issues, etc. Without Welch I am not sure where I would be in my case. She took my case from a commitment to social justice. I highly recommend her for your family law needs.

Conscientous, trustworthy, and very competent attorney.
Aimee helped me through a domestic partnership dissolution. She acted as a mediator. Both my ex partner and I felt process was practically fair and seamless. I re-hired Aimee several months later to handle estate planning. She was prompt and thorough. She is a pleasure to work with.

Very pleased with her services!
Throughout this difficult process, Aimee has been really supportive. She responds to my questions in a timely manner and has proven to be someone I can trust. Also, she is aware of costs and does her best to keep costs as low as possible. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer.

A Reasonable, Knowledgeable and Calming Attorny
Aimee helped me with a child custody case. It was a very nasty and emotional situation involving multistates, an outdated and ineffectual parenting plan, and a negligent parent. Because of her counsel and guidance I was able to calmly, rationally, and strongly present a valid case to the courts. As with any situation involving children and the courts, there were many unexpected turn of events. At each turn, she was right After trial closed and life moved on Aimee has been there to continue to guide me as the other parent tries to continue interfer in the courts decisions.. If you are looking for an attorney that has the knowledge to get it done right and fairly, an attorney who can provide those calm reasonable reassurances in the midst of such emotional issues, Aimee is the attorney to use!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone!!!

strong, just, and healthy support
Welch helped me navigate a divorce that could have been ugly and hurtful and transform the process. She helped me look at all sides of the situation and develop a strategy to serve the best needs of my children while preserving my integrity. She made me feel heard and empowered. She helped me break through so I can move forward clearly with resolution.

A lawyer who becomes your Friend
I have had my Will done, and had myself represented by Aimee Welch in the past for an issue. I would recommend her to be one of the friendliest lawyers I have ever met.

Should have never hired her!
I hired her for 4 months and nothing on my case got done. Shd did not make timely updates, all suggestions on my case came from me and nothing got solved but we were still charged. She took money and used it for other things than what our contract stated. Do not hire her!
Response from Aimee Champion September 20, 2018
It’s unfortunate that this circumstance landed here, as it claims serious allegations of financial impropriety, but I keep great records and am unconcerned about proving myself or my service in an appropriate forum should it reach that level. Clearly there is a gap in understanding, but like all attorneys, I will never give a guarantee for outcomes. The facts are wildly mishcaracterized in this review.
