    Amanda has been in front of me perhaps 4 or 5 times. She is always well prepared and professional. The cases I have had with her have not been exceptional in any way but her work is among the best. She maintains good relationships with her clients, they listen to her and follow her advice and she is well respected among her peers. I appreciate having her as an attorney in a case before me.

    Amanda was extremely professional and respectful of the difficult situation I found myself in. She made very clear at all times what was going on. She always made sure that I protected myself and my interests with sound, clear advice. At a time I was extremely vulnerable, Amanda made sure I stood up for myself and my family. I can never thank her enough.
