Amanda went above and beyond what I could have asked for in an attorney.  She fought for my child and she became more than just my lawyer, she became my friend.

Amanda helped us through a tough step-parent adoption.  She made the process much easier than I expected and, most importantly, she achieved the desired outcome for us!
