“Amy Kaye listened to me and fought hard for me and my children. She worked hard to get the case settled but let the other side know we were not afraid to go to court if we had to. I strongly recommend her.”
“Amy Kaye and her amazing group at Ellis Funk saved my sanity and my money. I have a very litigious ex that has enjoyed taking me to court multiple times. Amy was referred to me by a well known Atlanta attorney in another field and after our initial consultation she quickly stopped all the abuse I had endured for years. I was impressed with her knowledge and ability to run circles around the opposing attorney. We succeeded in every motion and now I can enjoy my children, my life, and not having to worry about the past.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with several of the attorneys at Ellis Funk over the years and have found them to be extremely competent and caring. Amy Kaye, in particular, strikes the right balance for a family law attorney, working hard to get her cases settled but tough when required and not afraid to go to court, if needed.”
“As a practicing attorney, I recognize that I may be a demanding client with unreasonable expectations. Amy Kaye handled all aspects of my divorce with excellence, responsiveness, good communication, and most importantly, strong strategic counsel and guidance. I was pleased with my results and endorse her unequivocally.”
“In the long course of my divorce and custody battle Amy has stood by my side. In the darkest moments she has been there, providing sage advice; understanding my current position, but reminding me of what our long-term goals were. In the course of my case I have been exposed to many attorneys, and I am proud to say that mine is the one who always held to the highest ethics and standards.
I do not think that it is too much to say that Amy and the team she assembled have saved my daughter's life.”
“Amy Kaye gets it done! She fought very hard for me & my kids to get us the best deal possible. She understands and is sympathetic to the custody issues and she also has a sharp business mind to deal with the financial issues. She pays attention to detail and got me a great result!”
“Amy Kaye is the BEST attorney I have ever known! I was also a Paralegal at 4 firms in my previous life! Her attention to every detail is beyond every expectation! She is professional, brilliant, thoughtful, personable and sees your case through every possibility! Amy wants the BEST for you and is realistic while continually working on the BEST outcome for you! She is sooo respected by Judges and her peers, both professionally and personally! I am PROUD to call Amy Kaye my attorney and now a friend!”
