“I required an attorney who is experienced in Wisconsin family law. My grandson’s life was our family’s top priority. My experience in MN family law is extensive, but not Wisconsin’s. Amanda was aggressive and swift in getting my grandson into my son’s hands and out of harms way. I believe to this day that if it were not for the actions of Amanda Hagen, we might not have the little boy that we have today. Her top priority is the safety of the families she is fighting for and I cannot say enough about her abilities and the humanity she has displayed time and time again. Court, especially Family Court, can be a daunting and discouraging process, but with the right attorney who will fight for you, you can feel like the court is hearing your concerns. Amanda has been a positive force in the courtroom and has the respect of the court and of her peers”.
– Grandmother and MN court clerk, custody and injunction case, Wisconsin.
“Amanda was our guardian angel. When I first contacted her, I was a nervous wreck. I was unsure of how to prepare for all of the personal and legal challenges ahead. From the moment we met it was clear Amanda had already researched the specific details of my case far above and beyond all of the other attorneys I had contacted. She listened to all of my concerns, treated me like I was her only client, and was able to comfort and advise me on how to proceed both legally through the family court system and personally with my son’s mother.
Preparing for our hearing, her amazing service continued. She contacted me at every step in the process, advised me of my rights and options, and helped me feel confident about how our hearing would proceed. At our hearing, she was a perfect mediator between my son’s mother and me; we were totally prepared and able to achieve an outcome that was satisfactory for all involved and best serves the needs of my son. Years into the parenting process, so much of the success I have had interacting with my son’s mother is directly attributable to the service Amanda has continuously provided.
On more than one occasion I have thought about how important Amanda’s work has been in the lives of my son and me. She protected us and helped me be the best father and man I could be in a very difficult situation. No one else could have done what she had and I am eternally grateful. Thank you, Amanda, for being my attorney and my friend.”
