I met Amos at one of the lowest points in my life. It was also a turning point at which I could have lost everything; family, friends, and my freedom. Amos was responsive from the beginning.  He was never judgmental and always treated me and my family with the utmost respect and concern. I was always kept up to date about what was happening with my case and Amos was always completely honest. He didn’t try to sugarcoat anything but he also never took away hope. He worked hard for me and the results were much better than I ever could have expected. I will always be grateful for his hard work, respect and compassion.


Amos is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and compassionate lawyer. He represented me in a challenging work-related matter and was at all times responsive, understanding, and committed to winning the case. At our hearing, he was prepared and persuasive, and we prevailed. I cannot recommend Amos enough!
