What Clients Say
Amy is an outstanding person to have represent you. You couldn’t ask for better. Not only is she intelligent and well versed with the law she is an excellent guide through some of the more emotional moments that undoubtedly arise during family break ups. She gives you the advice you need not always the advice you want. She keeps you focused. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
