In Amanda's Words:
"An individual’s family, however it is defined by them, is their single most important asset. My job is to help a client achieve the best possible outcome in an otherwise unfortunate situation, while providing them with the guidance necessary to navigate the process. Whether we are discussing child custody issues or the division of assets, I understand the complexity of these issues and advocate on their behalf in a manner best suited to their needs."
