One of the worst things to ever happen to me in my life was facing down the inevitable fate of a contentious divorce. One of the best things to ever happen to me in my life was meeting Amanda DuBois and her team. Amanda has helped me not only battle through the darkest throes of my divorce and come out on top but introduce me to the strong, confident woman I always was but could never see. Amanda is the most amazing blend of compassion and fierceness- she is an unstoppable force that will go above and beyond to protect your safety and well-being. There has never been a time when I could not reach out to Amanda and get a question answered immediately. She puts her clients needs first. I can’t count how many times I frantically called her needing a last minute phone debrief or emergency same day appointment. She always made herself available to me. Amanda has not only made this dark time in my life bearable but she has instilled in me a great hope for my future. I will forever be grateful to Amanda and her team at DuBois Cary Law. ~Jeanie Z.
My divorce was a difficult, highly stressful, emotionally draining event – a negative experience that I would not wish on anyone. But I can honestly say, the one unexpected positive element of my divorce proceedings was the incredible support and compassion I received from my attorney, Amanda DuBois, and the talented team at DuBois Cary Law Group. I was a single mom, pregnant, and alone in Seattle – all of my family lived thousands of miles away – and I did not know how I would survive the divorce on my own. I depended on Amanda and her team for not only their legal expertise and vast experience in navigating complicated divorce issues, but for their kindness and understanding of my unique situation. Whatever I needed (even the name of a temporary babysitter at one point!), the DuBois Cary team was there with ideas, resources, and endless amounts of patience. Amanda fought for me and the best interest of my child, and the end result was positively life changing. Life saving, really, and I have Amanda DuBois and the team at DuBois Cary to thank for that. I highly recommend this law firm. ~Cari C.
Attorney Amanda DuBois is why my children finally have their father in their lives in a meaningful way. The team there are experts, reasonably priced, and very responsive. I am not sure I would have been successful had Amanda and her team not stood by my side through a nightmare of a divorce.
The sad fact is that when it comes to family law in Washington state, the system is a “pro-mother” system. As a practical matter, Dads have a tougher burden when trying to share the parenting responsibility for a variety of reasons. If you are facing a spouse who is trying to deny you meaningful time with your children, do not take it lightly. Call DuBois Law.
My ex-spouse is a billionaire’s only child who basically tried to “buy” the children away from me. She used every dirty trick in the book, coupled with an incredibly aggressive divorce attorney to try and deplete my resources and force me to give up. She tried to make the process as painful as possible by making all sorts of false and distorted allegations, taking unnecessary depositions, and having a private investigator follow me around. It was a well funded full-court press. During this, she made every effort to try and keep the children from their father.
Amanda DuBois was able to carefully cut through the rhetoric and clarify the real truth to the parenting evaluator, arbitrator and the judge. At the end of the day, through Amanda’s advocacy, all of these parties took my side. The final ruling was a complete victory and can’t think of any area where I didn’t win outright.
Today, I have a wonderful relationship with my children and lots of time to be there for them. It was the best money I ever spent. If you find yourself getting into an adversarial litigation scenario, you really should call them. You won’t regret it. Your children are just too important not to – and they need you in their lives. ~RB Dunn
This review is for the Law Office of Ms. Amanda DuBois of Seattle. Anybody who gave you 1 or 2 stars likely hasn’t worked with you in any sustained, meaningful way.
Just got done with a very big, very long case with Amanda as lead counsel. It was complex, personal, and nobody knew what the outcome might be. I got the chance to deal with Amanda on a daily basis, and got to see how she worked. She came highly recommended–and she lived up to her reputation. I got to see her work through the mediation process, then actually got to see how her mind worked in trial. While the opposing counsel also has a good reputation in Seattle, it is safe to say, Amanda dominated. She is a bulldog–but she did not upset the judge and she strategically let the opposing counsel hang himself–very smart, very subtle.
I highly recommend Amanda for her professionalism, responsiveness (responds to emails/texts/calls 24×7), her thought process, her willingness to really peel back the onion, and, more than anything, her results. We won the case–and it could have gone either way. Thank you Amanda.~Paul C., Palo Alto, CA
Amanda exceeded my most optimistic expectations. She took over my divorce after I lost all confidence in my previous attorney, who had spent months trying to convince me that I would have to settle for a very unequal split with my ex. Amanda proved him wrong and negotiated a very fair settlement for me. Her team of attorneys and staff were consistently positive and professional. Amanda is extraordinarily efficient and quickly gets to the core of an issue. I simply could not have been happier. ~Randal G.
A year plus of legal maneuvering and now I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The DuBois Cary Law Firm was referred by another reputable Seattle law firm as “a firm with heart and drive”. I came to Amanda DuBois and her team with what seemed like a pretty straightforward case of people needing to separate and move on. I was looking for someone who would help guide me through the divorce system without losing sight of what was truly important to me —the children. Amanda did just that.
As time progressed and the case presented itself, it became apparent that this wasn’t such a straightforward case at all. The DuBois Cary Law Firm rose to the challenge in every instance. Amanda is very well-versed in family law and was a wealth of information. They weren’t afraid to go beyond their physical space or expertise to bring in consultants to advise on the case when it moved beyond family law. I really appreciated that they valued me as a client (and person) and weren’t just focused on the billable hourly they could have garnered had they kept it all in house. The people that they brought in to consult were nothing less than amazingly sharp and talented in their respective areas. Amanda built a wonderful team of experts that kept their eye on the ball, thought out of the box and kept me grounded. Their talents complimented Amanda’s skillset and that of her team.
I would recommend The DuBois Cary Law group to anyone who has their family as their top priority. They lead with heart and soul and that was the perfect fit for me. I am grateful for their expertise in what I would say was one of the lowest periods of my life. Unfortunately, we ended up in trial. It was a pretty complex legal issue… we won! ~Alexa I.
Amanda provided stellar service for over 2 (two) years, keeping my child safe. It was a complex and highly litigated case. Amanda and her associates will give you the best legal representation. They will be your guide and trusted resource. ~Happy Client, Seattle
The lawsuit began over three and a half years ago. The issue was whether our relationship qualified as a Committed Intimate Relationship under Washington law. Not only was it emotionally upsetting, but without their help I don’t know what I would have done. Amanda and her team at DuBois Cary walked me through the whole process and I don’t know what I would have done without their support. With their tenacity, we were able to get a very positive result at trial. They were so friendly and honest. I would recommend them to anyone. ~Happy Single Client
Thank you very, very much for all you did to help during the past two years!
We couldn’t have managed without you and all of your support. Your team is number one in family law. I interviewed the top 4 family law groups. Amanda you were the only one that believed that “honesty is the best policy” and we won the case. DuBois Law group cared for me and my child as their clients.

Amanda and associates were amazing. During a very painful divorce process, not only was Amanda wonderful, so were her colleagues. She was a therapist/friend/lawyer all wrapped up into one. If it was not for this law group, I am not sure I would have made it through. On top of this, she has helped me network, only to aid me in my career! Highly recommended!! ~Elizabeth S., Seattle
I had a wonderful experience with this firm. Not only did they help me through the most emotional time in my life, Amanda and team gave me sound advice. On top of this, Amanda has been there to help me connect to those in my field to ensure my ongoing success. Not only a lawyer, but a friend! ~Elizabeth S.
When I knew I was headed for divorce, I wanted someone who would keep my son’s interests as top priority, keep the process out of the courtroom (but be prepared for it if necessary), and stay as amicable as possible. Amanda DuBois was a perfect match for my needs. She guided me through the detailed process with respect, patience and a good dose of humor. She confidently counseled me as to how the court would respond to my wants/needs (overreach vs. undervalue) and provided me with clear and often creative ways to get to an end result I felt good about. I highly recommend Amanda and her team. ~Christine D.
I had an excellent experience with the DuBois Cary Law Group. They were very responsive, kind, and had excellent attention to detail. I had a complicated divorce and was very disappointed with my initial attorney, who left me with a mediation agreement that was incomplete, and failed to adequately address several important issues. Discussions were sidetracked, adversarial and simply not making progress.
Amanda DuBois was able to step in and successfully help me resolve these issues and reach settlement in a very timely and effective manner. She is very good at prioritizing important issues without losing site of details or wasting valuable time and money. Ms DuBois was able to clearly communicate and educate me, so that I stayed on track, avoided getting stuck, and kept the big picture in mind. The DuBois Cary Group did a fantastic job rescuing a bad situation, helping to complete the final settlement, and assisting me with the details that arose in the months following settlement. I give them my highest recommendation. ~Douglas G., Seattle
I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers. Amanda and team held my hand through a very very difficult divorce. She out-lawyered opposing counsel every step of the way. She has excellent relationships with and is highly respected by mediators and judges. She became a good friend, confidant and advisor. While I am glad to no longer have her on “speed dial,” I am glad to have worked with her and work out the best settlement possible. ~Happy Client, Seattle
I needed a divorce that would remain very confidential and remain civil for the best interests of my son. Despite pushback and the attempt to start a way by my ex-husband, the team at DuBois Cary were able to keep the situation under control and protect everyone involved from what might have otherwise been a very difficult situation. I cannot recommend Amanda DuBois and her team highly enough. ~Satisfied Ex-wife
Amanda, I can’t begin to thank you enough for what you’ve done for me. I’m overwhelmed by your determination & performance… Holly, thank you for all that you’ve done in keeping me informed on what was happening and keeping me in line. I’m sure I tested your organizational skills a few times to say the least. ~Gene W.
Amanda DuBois was instrumental in my successful divorce. She help me navigate these challenging times as my divorce involved 3 beautiful children after a 15 year-long long marriage. Her advice went beyond the simple legal aspects of a divorce. I highly recommend the team of the DuBois Cary Law Group. ~Francois A.
Divorces are rarely “easy”, but I am pleased to report that with the positive support of Amanda DuBois and the whole team at DuBois Cary Law Group, I found this major ordeal in my life was so much easier than I could have anticipated. Thank you! ~ Jane W.
The legal dispute was surrounding necessary revisions to the parenting plan, and my ex-wife was completely disregarding the needs and best interests of our children. Amanda Dubois was warm, compassionate and concerned as we sorted through the issues and assessed pragmatically what courses of action were viable and aligned with my goals for the kids. While I doubt that anyone ever gets all that they want from litigation, Amanda helped ensure that the crucial items of business were carried through to the finished agreement. Her firm is caring, professional and very effective–I recommend her! ~Jesse W.
Amanda and her team were wonderful. I went through a tough divorce (well, what divorce is not hard) and they were there every step of the way. I felt like they were my “home away from home”. I got a therapist/friend/lawyer all wrapped up into one! ~Happy Client, Seattle
This firm helped me with my divorce and I received wonderful, caring and highly responsive help from Amanda DuBois and her staff. I cannot recommend this firm highly enough. ~Elizabeth M., Seattle
