I had to hire Amber for a custody case when my daughter's mother fell into a life, "unfit for children". It lasted about six months, and she was very understanding of my situation when I decided to drop the case after I decided to try to reconcile with my ex. (This being after she completed a treatment program)
Although she advised me that it may not be in my best interests, she WAS very pleased that I was able to attempt to reestablish my family....instead of being a vindictive man and taking the full amount of legal action that most might have done.
Every aspect of my case was handled in a timely fashion, and she (Amber) has always been very professional with me. I literally have not one complaint about choosing Ms. Austin as my attorney.
I would definitely recommend her services to anyone needing a Family Law Attorney, and would call her first if I ever needed one again in the future.

I had spoken to and met with several lawyers and law firms prior to meeting with Amber. None of them compared to Amber with her forthrightness, her ability to break down my case and tell me exactly what was happening, and to show me the tricks and motives the other party's attorney was using to try and pay less child support. She explained in detail what to expect out of my case hearing and covered all the possible outcomes. She was quick to respond if I had any questions. She showed compassion for my case and could see how exhausted and scared I was dealing with this so she made sure to convey the legal information in a way that I could understand. I will definitely hire Amber again in the future.

We had to hire Amber to fight erroneous back support charges filed against me by the State and my ex. We have to commend Amber on her professionalism, especially in the courtroom when compared to the other lawyer. She does a great job of letting you get your emotions out, especially when frustrations are at an all time high, but she has the experience and knowledge to take out the emotion and keep the final goal in mind. That type of awareness ultimately kept us on track and were very happy with the results.
We would not have any problem recommending Amber to anyone and would without a doubt use her again if the need arises.

Not only was Amber an effectual advocate but she also was timely in her efforts and demonstrated follow through that led to our matter being resolved in the best way possible. I would highly recommend her to others dealing with divorce.

From the time I hired Amber she only had three days go get a massive amount of documents together and filed with the courts. All paperwork was spot on exactly as we had discussed. Couldn't be happier with the promptness and professionalism!!

What I love about Amber is that she remains loyal and helpful even after the case is finished. We ended up having a second go-around in court, and though we had to use someone else due to the nature of the case she remained loyal to us by providing advice and referring us personally to someone. At this point she feels more like a friend because she comes across as being personally invested.

I read some reviews in search of a good lawyer after I had a no contact and dvop charged on me after reading many reviews and talking to atleast 12 other lawyers I finally found Amber Austin who aftwr talking to was very knowledgeable fair and cared more about both parties in my case but mainly my daughter's future and us as a family. She definitely got me the results I was hoping for and had a very good plan on how to approach my case. I was honestly quit lost on all the aspects of the law system and she explained how all this works and tought me to protect myself in the future and actually helped my family come back together she went out of her way to help me. In the end she got me the results I wanted. I am completely happy I found Amber and even happier with how awesome of a lawyer she is thank you Amber Austin

Amber was totally uninformative as my legal rep. On the very first Court hearing to establish the separation terms she enabled my now EX husband to get over $110,000. in asset use. I was not informed about what she was going to say . The financial joint accounts were never frozen, I never had access to our joint accounts while he had access to just take and transfer and use as much as he wanted. I was told to not even speak with her about anything that was happening. She and her firm did not represent me, they enabled my ex 's side to get much that should have been under review prior to and during the actual divorce court hearings. She never allowed for a fiduciary investigation. I was put in great stress and felt I had no representation or any control during this early time going through my separation and divorce. I ended up firing her and her the firm she worked with. I found a much better lawyer who represented me not my Ex. who cared and fought hard for me. The firm she worked for also only cared about billing, they billed for just sneezing. It was like out of the John Grisham book "The Firm" with double over billing for everything. They even billed for things that were for the Ex's legal representation expenses not for mine. She was very detrimental to moving forward in my Divorce hearings and cost me $10,000. for nothing before we even started to research any appropriate fiduciary sensitive or other information pertinent to going to Court for getting a settlement or Divorce. I would not recommend Ms. Amber Austin Channell to represent anyone legally in Divorce situations or Family Law. I had my experience when she was at a firm in Gig Harbor in 2010, 2011.

Amber has been extremely professional and informative through out my whole divorce. My case has not been an easy one but she is very diligent in her work. She has given me options and spoke to me in a language that I can understand. Even if the options were not in my favor, she still had a plan for the next step in our case. I believe she will turn every rock and get you the outcome you want.

Amber was very helpfull from the start, and she kept being so tremendously throughout the long 12 months of my divorce case. She is quick to file motions and gather information, knows the forms and paperwork like the back of her hand, and replies quickly to my messages both voicemails and emails. Once in the court room... now that is where she is the best, I was very impressed by her choice vocabulary, the massive persuasion in her argument, and her professionalism. Needless to say I got everything I wanted, I am a father who now has equal custody of my daughter thanks to Amber.
Thanks again Amber!
