“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
“When I came to Amy her law partner described her as ‘smart and ethical.’ To that, now, I would have to add some additional things. First, she has a spirit of fun that was really nice to have along the way. It extends from her sense of humor to her love of ‘artsy and weird.’ Most important, though, I would add that she has a genuine spirit of humanness. She helped me stay (get back) on an even keel and do the right thing that I really wanted to do all along. With her straightforward tact and sympathetic understanding and knowledge she was able to ease my ‘scares’ and concerns. She displayed humor, honesty, dignity, humility and compassion during the whole ordeal. Once again my most sincere thanks and I thank Amy for being a ‘friend’ through it all.  She beautifully handled my case not once but twice and is now my dear friend.  I will forever cherish our friendship.” - Debbie
“Amy was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. I was dealing with the overwhelming emotions involved in the divorce process. Amy walked me through the process and made it easy. She answered my questions, no matter how trivial and took time out of her day to come meet with me rather than making me come to her. Amy did a wonderful job of making a difficult time less difficult. Now I can focus on living my best life possible with my children.” – Kayla
"In 2015 we started the journey to become foster parents. We had 3 biological daughters, but foster care was tugging on our heart strings. We completed all the paperwork & classes in the summer of 2016 & had two babies placed in our home in August that year. Our hearts doubled in size as we became a family of 7. Foster Care is an emotional roller coaster, there’s really no other way to put it, and in 2019 we were approved to adopt. Thanks to the recommendation of a friend we found The Law Shop! They were wonderful to work with, very efficient, quick, and understanding. The Law Shop helped us become a Forever Family & for that I am Forever grateful!" – Shantelle
