“Amy is a superb advocate for her clients with the experience and skill to achieve the best results.” - Andrew B. Howie, Attorney, West Des Moines, Iowa
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
"Working with Amy was wonderful!  Her advice and support gave me the courage to live life again.  I was content with the way things were, but after talking to Amy and going through the process, I can LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!!  Thank you!!" - Cindy
“Getting divorced was never on my radar. It was a huge, horrible, unexpected shock. Working with Amy was a lifeline in many ways. Of course, her knowledge of the law was top-notch. But more than that was the care she showed me. Every meeting ended in a very tight hug. I get teary-eyed even now remembering it. She was very patient, willing to answer every single question I had (& still does when things pop up).  She listened and let me lead the way, but was also very clear in offering advice in areas that might work out better in a way I hadn’t thought of. I think the most glowing praise I can give her is that I have found out my ex has referred friends to Amy instead of the lawyer he used in our divorce!” - Heidi
