As criminal defense attorneys, Amanda and I have worked as co-counsel together and as representing co-defendants, and there is no one I would rather have as a partner in the courtroom.

Great Attorney
She explained to me that what I was expecting probably was not going to happen. I appreciated her brash honesty. She went back and forth with me talking through everything and explaining everything to me. Sometimes we need attorneys to be straight forward with us. As a client we do not know the law ourselves. I realized after talking with her that just because I had been through a rough relationship, does not mean I am entitled to get everything. Great Attorney. Highly recommend Amanda Gentry.

Hire if you want a lawyer without a soul!
Amanda Gentry does the least amount of work possible for a paycheck. And please don't try to contact her in an emergency situation that requires legal advice passed 5pm on a Friday or you will receive a snarky text reply from her that states "Well, it's 5:10pm on a Friday, there's nothing I can do for you." Even you simply require a "yes" or "no" response. This includes Saturday and Sundays! Hopefully any legal advise you may need occurs on her designated time clock or you will be made to feel like a fool for contacting her. She's harsh and rude, and not just toward her defense (which would be beneficial) but, worse, even toward her own clients. Having never been to court in my life for any legal matter, she made me cry and almost fire her on the spot after the realization that she came completely unprepared and not knowing anything about my domestic abuse case prior to the court date. She suggested I take a deal that couldn't have been worse for my well-being and the well-being of my child. I declined proposals against her "legal suggestions" until I finally felt I had an offer worth presenting. (I decided to have my own back and find a new lawyer moving forward.) If you like to be talked down to, and belittled for your lack of knowledge of the legal system, she may be right for you. If you want someone to believe in you, support you, and win for you, (not just convince you to take a deal so she can clock out), do not hire this miserable woman with a criminal law degree.
