    I have used Mike Amthor twice for divorce and custody work. This guy has great Christian values and morals. No matter what happened in my case, he always had my boys' best interest in mind. He never gave up! He fought hard for my rights as a father. I continue to work hard today to be a great father because he gave me hope and courage. I also appreciate that he always worked with my budget and stayed in it. There are some great ones out there that make a difference in your life. he is it!

    Mr. Amthor has a vast experience in family law. As far as I know, he has been in practice for 20 years now. He is aggressive for his clients but seeks to keep the divorce process as amiable as possible but without leaving his client for the worse. He tried to make my situation fair but had my best interests in mind at all times. I highly recommend him.

During negotiations, he seemed to be siding with my former husband and suggested we not pursue where money from a TSA account had gone. He would not consider the possibility of a decreased valuation of property.
