My son was charged with 10 20 life felonies for having a hand gun during domestic violence. Amanda came to the arraignment inside the jail on a Saturday and argued for a reasonable bond. He was released within 24 hours. She then started negotiation with the state attorneys office and selected a strategy for his defense. This strategy lead to all the charges being dropped and our bond was refunded. The process took less than a month. Fast action for serious problems and her efforts made our family structure complete again in a short period of time.

RichardAll Charges Dropped

After searching online and calling several family lawyers, I was discouraged. Some office’s never returned my call and the last one I spoke too, assumed I was broke, ignorant, and brushed me off. As soon as the receptionist answered the phone I knew my luck had turned around, she was sympathetic and helpful. Within a few minutes Amanda called me and heard my case as I briefly described it. She helped me over the phone and was not aggressive in trying to take my money, She guided me and answered all my questions. Even though I don’t need her services at this time I will indeed use her in the future and will recommend her to anyone. Thank you again for reassuring me. I pray your practice flourishes!!

YeseniaWill hire Amanda anyday!!

Amanda was always available if I had questions and made sure I understood everything in advance. I was very happy with the way my case was closed.

FranklinAlways Available and Thorough

She was extremely helpful and diligent in my case. Not only was she able to respond effectively, but she was able to even decrease my charges and gave me a fighting chance to get my life back in order.

I hired Amanda on November 2013 for a criminal case I was facing. Amanda was in constant communication and was regularly updating me on the case. I was facing a long sentence (Life) and Amanda did an extraordinary job in putting everything into perspective. You could tell from the beginning that Amanda cares for the well-being of her client. Amanda managed to fight my case and subsequently, lower the worst felony and some other charges were dropped. In the end, I went from facing life in prison to probation. Overall, I am pleased with Amanda Sampaio and would highly recommend her!
