Amy Saunders, Esq.

Amy Saunders, Esq. Divorce Lawyer in Massachusetts

If anyone understands divorce, it’s Attorney Amy Saunders. She was a thriving corporate lawyer when she was thrusted into her own divorce and the life of a single, working mother. It was this personal experience that ultimately led her to redirect her practice to divorce law to offer her clients a new approach through what can be a devastating time, emotionally and financially.

Attorney Saunders has been practicing law for nearly twenty years, represented celebrities and is noted for her unique style, her empathy and her expertise. Saunders’ professional life has been profiled by publications like the Wall Street Journal, Red Book, Men’s Health, US News and World Report, Women’s Health, and Bazaar to mention a few.

Amy Saunders addresses the gap for individuals who want―and need―to handle their breakups differently. As we all know, the divorce rate in America is more than half the marriage rate. Yet the means for dissolving a relationship is often hopelessly stuck in an outdated perception and approach. Saunders acknowledges these realities and helps her clients get  divorced efficiently and allow them to maintain control of the process, themselves. Amy knows the many roads, and walks alongside her clients to resolution. Amy wears many hats during the process from attorney, coach, strategist, to friend. Her clients appreciate her outgoing and down-to-earth style that put her clients at ease and reassured in how much Amy invests and cares about them.
