Amanda L. Clepper

Practice Manager

Clepper_AmandaFamily law has always appealed to Amanda L. Clepper as she personally knows what it is like to be a child of divorced parents.

“I enjoy being able to make a difference and bring some sort of comfort during that difficult time to my clients and their children,” Ms. Clepper said. “No single case is ever the same and each one is equally challenging in one way or another.”

In one of the more rewarding cases Ms. Clepper has worked on, the father was granted custody of his children despite the fact his wife was a stay-at-home mom.

The mother was increasingly going out at night and living the single life, and Ms. Clepper was able to show the judge that “dad had the best interest in mind for his children for the future even if mom had played that role in the past.”

“As your attorney, I will discuss your goals with you and align those goals with what the law has taught me and with what experience has shown me to propose realistic options to help you achieve the best outcome possible,” she said.

“… She is truly amazing! She is so good at following up. I never have to reach out to her to find out what’s going on with my case. From day one, Amanda had a plan. She’s never given us false hope and has always been on top of things! Amanda always presents all of the options. She tells us what she would recommend but always asks us what we’d be most comfortable with. Amanda couldn’t be better! … This experience has been nothing but pleasurable. Amanda is worth every penny we’ve paid. I just wish I’d found her sooner!”
