I am so happy I chose Amy to help me work through my divorce. She made this unknown process to me VERY manageable and “made it all happen” when I didn’t have a clue as to where to even begin. Amy has a warm and welcoming personality that made me feel really important, not just a paying client but a person who she truly had a big heart to help!! She wanted to hear my story and made sure to give me hugs when she knew I needed them! – Erica
“I have enjoyed working with Amy on several projects over the years. She brings good ideas and much enthusiasm to the table. She also is open minded to other’s suggestions and willing to work on those ideas as well.” ~Phil Garland, Attorney, Garner, Iowa
“I have known Amy J. Skogerson for many years. Over my many years of being in practice, I have found that lawyers who are successful are those who have earned the respect of their colleagues. Amy has achieved that lofty goal. She has earned the respect of her colleagues.”  - Patrick L. Wilson, Attorney, Des Moines, Iowa
“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
