“Since the divorce and change in visitation schedule [my daughter] has brought up all her failing grades! You have made a huge impact in both our lives and for that I'm forever grateful!’

Satisfied Client

“A few months ago I was in a desperate legal situation concerning the custody of my children. I called a ton of law firms to get legal advice and see what my rights were.  I had a lot of response, but none compared to the phone conversation I had with Amanda Speights with Speights Law Firm.  She did not just give me a response she gave me hope.  She is an amazing lawyer who fought for my rights and the rights of my children.”

Satisfied Client

“Amanda is someone who I was so thankful to have on my side, not only when it was time to go to court, but all the way through the process. She understood the importance and the urgency of my situation. She took the time to explain things to me that I did not understand and she delivered an extremely intelligent and well organized approach throughout the entire case. Peace of mind is priceless and that is a gift that was given to me by Amanda that I will never forget.”
