Amy Norris, by far one of the most sincere attorney's I have worked with. Amy's attention to detail and professionalism set a standard other attorney's should adhere to. Amy took the time to listen and understand my situation and more imporatntly how I got in the situation. Amy then took the time to construct how the case would be attacked and shared every detail needed from me. She also infused a sense of trust allowing me to proceed without fear. I was fortunate to have Amy on my team and by my side.

Real estate
Ms. Norris was super helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with when I needed advice on a real estate question when selling my home in DC. I highly recommend working with her and would seek her legal advice again! She will help you sort through your issue in a timely manner and will help put you at ease.

Ms. Norris epitomizes the distinction of all that which sets her apart. The circumstances I was faced with, seemed insurmountable only three weeks ago yet Ms. Norris' word was all I could go by and she delivered most expeditiously and flawlessly, I am immensely appreciative and profoundly impressed by the win she achieved in only a few working days. Ms. Norris personally handled the matter and within an hour of the initial consultation I knew that she was quite simply extraordinary in her approach, highly competent and a hands on practitioner. Ms. Norris not only explained the nuances and the terminology but she touched base with me regularly and kept me abreast of the developments in the case keeping me at ease throughout the process. If caring, trustworthy, meticulous, knowledgeable, punctual and results oriented attorney is your benchmark, then you need to look no further than Ms. Norris.

Student Loans
Ms. Norris helped me finally resolve a complex student loan matter that I had already been trying to resolve for nearly 6 months, (unsuccessfully so), and, which would normally be near impossible to resolve alone. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with their student loans or any other issue that she handles.

Attorney norris is one of the best you could ask for! She was able to help me when I was in a tough spot and got me an amazing plea!! She follows up regularly, and even let me put down a lesser down payment because I was freshly 18 and paying for college in my own. She is a savior!!

Distinguished lawyer with proven results!
I can't say enough about this law firm and Ms. Amy Norris. In foreclosure, I was so afraid I was going to lose my home. Ms. Norris and her fine legal expertise encouraged the opposing lawyer to settle this matter out of court and then the negotiations began. Ms Norris was quite determined and very stern in what she wanted to accomplish for me. She was able to get the opposing side to remove the foreclosure, allow grace time for the rehab process (I had a FHA 203K loan with construction issues), and was even able to work out the financial portion of my issue to favor me, the homeowner! When Ms. Norris phoned me with the great news of what she had accomplished for me, I was so elated that I cried like a baby. Her wonderful spirit consoled and made me feel as though it was HER honor to work for me to get this matter on track and ultimately save my home. This is what I call a great lawyer and this is exactly who Ms. Amy Norris is!

Excellent Representation!
I retained Ms. Norris to help with a serious traffic court matter. She acted swiftly to ensure the best possible outcome to my case. She was, to say the least, diligent and thorough. I could not recommend her more highly.

Ms. Norris represented and successfully concluded my very complicated reverse mortgage case that involved several entities from commercial to government with skill, dedication, warmth, and professionalism. I have dubbed her my "legal Angel."

Quality with style
Amy was as enthusiastic as she was effective. She kept me up to date on her efforts and delivered precisely the result I was looking for. If you need someone who will put your interests first, I'd recommend giving her a call.
