After Amie divorced and recognized the importance of legal representation in dissolution, she decided to re-enter the practice of law, focusing on family law.

Before practicing family law, Amie clerked for federal judges at the United States Bankruptcy Court in both Los Angeles and Nevada where she performed legal research, drafted bankruptcy memoranda, opinions, and orders.

Amie was in-house counsel for a real-estate development company where she drafted and negotiated business agreements and advised on business development, strategy, marketing and management. She then took time off to raise her two children.

Amie began her family law career volunteering at the Harriet Buhai Center and the Los Angeles County Bar Domestic Violence Project. She then practiced at a boutique law firm specializing in family law where she prevailed at trial in a difficult out-of-state move-away case.

Because of her own divorce, Amie decided to approach her practice differently with the goal of guiding clients toward settlement. Amie’s hope is to assist parties going through divorce with compassion and understanding, using her experience as a guide. Amie also recognizes that in some cases, litigation cannot be avoided.

Children’s Books on Divorce

Amie, and her mother Barbara Greenberg, collaborated on children’s books after personally and professionally experiencing the impact of divorce. The books are girl and boy versions of a child’s view of divorce told by brother and sister, Nick and Julianna. Entitled “I am Divorced…But I’m Still Me: A Child’s View of Divorce – Nick’s Story” and “I am Divorced…But I’m Still Me: A Child’s View of Divorce – Julianna’s Story”, the books mirror children’s experience of divorce through powerful illustrations and words. By mirroring what children are feeling and facing, it helps them communicate about their own divorce. Reading these books gives parents the tools to open a dialog to help their children.

Amie and Barbara hope to help parents and children open up about the divorce, see beyond the pain, and begin to heal. For more information on the books or blog, please visit
