“In working with Amy in my Collaborative divorce was needless to say a pleasure. Although divorces are one of the most depressing things to go through in life, it also happens. The thing to remember in any case such as divorce, sickness and death, each person needs to realize they will have to go through it. Surround yourself with good people, your ideals need to match your tools going into anything. As a multi business owner, I too find the hammer that fits the hand. Amy and her team worked due diligently on all aspects from beginning to end. No matter how much a person feels the process is un-fair or un-just, this team will make sure it is. The emotional support is unbelievable, when you feel lost, Amy will find you and put you on the right path. This is not common amongst the other attorneys I’ve worked with on a daily basis. I have found a great friend that has stuck with me all the way through and yet years after on clarification of what happened. The best thing you will ever take from this is these words I carry with me today ‘this won’t last forever’ ‘the way you feel today will be a memory’ Take these words and live by them because Amy and her team truly understand what each of us is going through.” – Jeremiah
"We contacted The Law Shop after a referral from a friend. We were looking for a slight modification. The Law Shop worked well for our needs, and we are very pleased. We will definitely call them again if needed." – Respectfully, Ryan & Mary
"We have been really impressed with how fast and efficient Amy is with getting our adoption hearings scheduled and finalized.  It is clear that she makes her clients a priority and knows how important our Adoption Days have been to our family!”  ~Jake Skurdal
I was very nervous and in foreign territory when looking for a divorce lawyer, but when I stepped into The Law Shop and met with Andrea, I felt immediately at ease. I didn't need to spend thousands of dollars for my divorce, they offered a documents only/flat rate option which is all I needed. Andrea took great care of me throughout the whole process and I felt like a priority. In the end, what I thought was going to be a nightmare, was a great experience. I would recommend The Law Shop to anyone going through a divorce. - Allie
