Client Testimonials

I have been very pleased to work with Amber and the Navigate Law Group team. She is very thorough, timely, and personable. I would highly recommend her for any family law situation.
– Michelle K.
I want to thank you again for helping me regain my confidence and “sass”  through my divorce.   For years I allowed myself to be stomped down and believed his belittling lies.  Through your help, guidance and solid boundaries, I have been able to get back in touch with my true self.  I will be forever grateful to you and your team.  
– Anne B.
Amber is a very knowledgeable compassionate and empathetic attorney in the divorce area. When I felt overwhelmed about the divorce proceedings Amber stepped in and made me feel at ease. Her knowledge of divorce laws and straightforward No Nonsense attitude made me feel comfortable that she was the perfect person to step in to advise me on what’s best for me and my family.

Navigate Law Group has been a one stop legal team that has helped me with multiple issues and for that I will always use their services. All the attorneys on staff are very professional, knowledgeable as well as equipped to handle any legal issue.

– Kat
