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.
Amber Rush was an excellent attorney. She was able to help me with my case, and it was very easy to communicate with her. She would always kept me informed about every detail of the matter. I would used this firm again if I ever need to and I would recommend them to my friends.
Thank you again,
