What Our Clients Are Saying

GYL represented me with my divorce in 2013 and for my current motions, restraining order and move-away.Amy has been so supportive and my saving grace from the very beginning. She's sensitive to my emotions and feelings and will sympathize with care but she'll be firm and strict when necessary. She guided and led me all the way through and because of that, we won our case!John represented me today for a restraining order against my ex. With his thoroughness, honesty, and guidance, I was granted 1 year extension on my restraining order.Jackie has been so instrumental in all my motions. She has been so patient and held my hand with all the forms and documents to file the motions right.I am coming up with a move-away motion and I am extremely confident that it will fall in my favor.I am forever grateful to Amy, John, and Jackie!!! The are truly amazing...hence MY DREAM TEAM!Have I mentioned how amazing they are?!:)

Amy Lass from and Griffith, Young, and Lass, was AMAZING to work with! I admit I was scared the first time I walked into Amy’s office. At the time I was a self-employed father of a six year old child going through divorce for the first time. There were so many unknowns with the divorce process and my rights as a father. Amy could sense how I was feeling and focused on the issues she could tell were important to me. I can remember at the end of our first meeting Amy looking at me with a confident smile and saying, “you are going to be just fine.” I really needed to hear that. Throughout the case Amy was frequently in contact with me and even provided me her cell phone number which made communication even easier. I could tell Amy genuinely cared about my case. Amy tried many times to work out a fair settlement with my ex but my ex was set on going to trial thinking the court would side with her simply because she is a woman. That was not the case. Amy represented me in trial and was prepared and confident. We ended up winning the case in a landslide! I was able to get the custody I wanted, the house, child support, and half or my ex’s 401k. I am still blown away by how well this went for me and it’s all due to Amy Lass! Do you self a favor and retain Amy, you won’t regret it. Thank you Amy!
