Attorneys with Character

About our Firm

We make it a point to inform clients that we’re here to be their attorney, they’re not here to be our clients. This client-centered approach ensures that clients remain in control of their cases and their lives.

How to Choose an Attorney

We’re often asked how to choose the best attorney. The only advice we give when choosing an attorney is to find someone that you feel comfortable talking to. Litigation is stressful and it doesn’t matter who your attorney is if you aren’t comfortable telling them the difficult details.

Be proactive instead of reactive

If you have a problem, ignoring it will not make it go away. Often, a small problem with an easy solution can turn into many problems down the road. These new problems can be costly and difficult to correct. Our firm would like to help you avoid those costly situations.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

  • review rating 5  WE hired Amanda Carter and I have to say she goes above and beyond as a lawyer and keeps you in the loop. She did an awesome job for us for a child custody case that spanned two states. She was very informative and was always available. She helped get our second lawyer in the second state up and running and kept in contact with her and kept us up to date with what was happening in the second state. She is caring and amazing. I would recommend her and might just have to hire again but if it comes to it she will be the first one I call hands down. Thank you Amanda for everything you did for us!
