Working with Fariah was like having a brilliantly wise, caring, knowledgeable, and very efficient human armor that takes a stand for you in challenging situations as trial. The moment I spoke to her the first time and realized how quickly she was able to pick up what the situation is I was clear that she was the right person for me. And she did not disappoint. She went way beyond the measure of what I expected and responded to (sometimes urgent) situations skillfully powerfully and timely. Her amazing organizational skills, professionalism, and consistent, clear ongoing communication is a great asset for a lawyer like Fariah. She is a rare combination of being very personable, super wise, very efficient and fabulously knowledgeable around the laws. Her devotion was felt throughout the entire, long trial period. Her service helped us reach a custody resolution that was a win for everyone at the end. She is a wonderfully kind person that feels like I got a friend besides having a gifted lawyer. I would recommend her services to all the people I love shall they need it.

So often people only take the time to write a review or send a note when they are upset or want to bash someone. It is my pleasure to talk about Fariah Amin. She is professional and well prepared. She explained everything with me before and after discussions with the opposition. She is knowledgeable, she is passionate about helping her clients and made me feel very comfortable and trusting in her ability to present my case to the Courts. Fariah Amin represented me in a child custody and protective order case. She advocated for me all the way . She listened to me and updated me all the time about my case. Her knowledge of the legal system and the laws pursuant to my case made me very happy with my selection of Ms. Fariah Amin as my representation. I offer my recommendation of Ms. Fariah Amin with 100% confidence in her ability to help anyone in family court matters.

I am so blessed to have an attorney like Fariah Amin for my son’s custody. My case was so messy, complicated, and detrimental that it wasn’t easy to handle. The case was a high conflict case with a varied range of issues as the father wasn’t cooperative. But the moment she took over my case, she drastically improved every single part of my case. Her strategy was simple, straight, and effective. She knows every detail of my case and more importantly the LAW. She always made me feel confident that every hearing we attend we would come out one step closer to a positive outcome for my child. She understands it's not just a case, it is the welfare of a child in her hand. She answered all my text messages, phone calls, emails, questions very PROMPTLY even make time between her trial of a case in time of emergency. Her every second of advice counts. She is a life saver. I highly recommend her if you are seeking child custody and divorce.

工作经验

  • Represented a Client in post-divorce custody modification to help the client regain custody of her minor children from the opposing party who was a wealthy and influential member of client’s former religious community.  The opposing party had unlimited resources and influence. The Court removed the children from client’s without a hearing and without the client having any legal counsel at the time. After one year in litigation, which included about 20 days of trial time, client was able to regain custody of her children.
  • I represented a client arrested for child endangerment as her husband alleged that their then 18-month-old child drank bleach while in her care. My client was arrested, and a child protective case ensued, the father filed for custody and an order of protection.  The father was awarded temporary custody and my client, who had been the child’s primary caretaker was excluded from the marital home and given supervised visits with her son.  Through extensive litigation, I was able to flip the case completely and obtained temporary custody for my client. While the forensic expert was testifying on the stand during trial, I was able to get her to depart from her written report which suggested joint custody for the parents and instead recommended sole custody for my client.  I was able to get the client full custody, a full stay away order of protection, dismissal of her criminal, and a reversal of the child protective findings.
  • Client hired me to handle his divorce matter and fight against a false family offense petition filed by his wife that resulted in a temporary order of protection against my client in family court. At the commencement of the matter, there was a full stay order of protection against my client against his wife and children. He had no access to his children, including no phone contact. The ex-wife levied allegations against my client of child abuse, rape, and drug use. Through aggressive litigation in both Family and Supreme Court, I was able to get the order of protection case dismissed. With respect to the Supreme Court case, I resolved the divorce with joint physical custody and decision-making for my client in line with the wishes of the client.
  • I represented client on a sex abuse case filed against him by the Administration of Children Services. Within a few short weeks was able to discover that the child had fabricated the allegations. Trial on the matter was scheduled for 2023. I was able to get client and expedited hearing and was able to resolve the matter, reuniting the client with his family.
  • In another child abuse case client and her husband were charged with child abuse by ACS. The child was repatriated from Pakistan under the care of my client without the consent or knowledge of my client. The child was subsequently put into foster care and the parents suffered a de-facto termination of their rights by virtue of the Court issuing restrictive orders that prevented them from having access to their child or even access to the child’s medical, educational, or any other information. The child was given an alias and her location was kept confidential. After one fierce year of fighting, ACS saw the many holes in their case and completely withdrew the abuse case against the parents, a very rare move by ACS. The child is now reunited with her parents.
