Great attorney. He really knows what he’s doing. He was very helpful to me when needed.

I was referred to Tim Amey by a friend. We had an initial “meet and greet” to go over the case. I explained the predicament I was facing and how I felt as though the officers handled the situation poorly. After hearing my side of the situation, he explained each probable outcome in great detail as well as counter outcomes. He told me if the situation occurred the way I say it occurred, he had confidence in a good result. He also noted that whenever dealing with the courts I had to be realistic.
I felt confident in his ability as well as at ease with whatever the outcome (which is the most important feeling one wants in regard to their lawyer). Shortly after court I heard from Tim, not only were the initial charges dropped, but also, his “ be realistic outcomes” weren’t sentenced. With the help of Tim Amey I went from charges that could potentially cause difficulties when applying to medical school to a proverbial slap on the wrist fine that was cheaper than buying my dog dog food. Tim has great knowledge of the law and a demeanor that provokes assurance. I do not plan on having any legal difficulties in the future but I know if I do, I have a lawyer that I can trust.

Highly recommend! I felt like I could contact him at any time. He would respond quickly and were I could understand easily. He did ALL he could to help me and my case. I couldn't be more thankful to have him has my attorney. Thanks, Tim!

I would like to articulate this in a way that will convey the importance of calling Tim Amey if you are in a situation which requires esquire services, so bear with me. I have unfortunately needed legal services 4 times in my life, and this time I decided to call Tim after doing extensive research. After having 3 previous attorneys, the switch was incredible! It was truly like night and day, and I thought I previously had excellent representation, I was wrong. He was not only timely and professional, but also seemed like he understood my situation and did not judge, just shot me totally straight. He told me what he would do for me, he told me what it would cost (half or less of what he easily could've charged), and then he went and did exactly that. Not only did I appreciate what he did for me on a professional level, I also appreciated having some conversation with him, very down to earth, my wife said the same thing. I give thanks and credit where credit is due, and I tell it like it is when things aren't so good, read my other reviews. Tim Amey deserves your business! In a world that seems a little shaky and sketchy at times, he is a consummate professional that we need more of!

Walked me through absolutely everything and lowered my stress level TREMENDOUSLY. Easy to contact by text or phone call at any time and incredibly thorough; he completely handled everything for me. I cannot recommend enough.
- Kerstin Fridh. 10/27/2018
Excellent attorney! Extremely helpful! Knowledgeable and knows how to take good care of his clients. I would recommend Mr. Amey without hesitation. I found him very easy to work, reachable and capable to get the results I needed. Thank you!
- Thad Cosby. 9/30/2018
Tim Amey said what he was going to do and he did it. Being from out of state, special attention had to be paid to the peculiars of my situation and a more than satisfactory resolution had resulted. Undoubtedly I would return for his professional services in the future if need be. On top of that, he's an enjoyable person to converse with. =)

Great attorney when your in a pinch.
- Cuds R US. 8/27/2018
Great criminal attorney!
- Ginger McCartney. 3/8/2018
I was referred to Mr. Tim and it Truly has been an amazing experience for me. Usually when going through legal battles you are stressed, worrying about what’s next. This man made sure I was stress free. Through this entire process, he did everything. He attended all court dates. I didn’t have to be in and out of court because he handled everything for me. I didn’t miss not one day of work. Through this entire process, he fought to get me the best outcome for my situation. When they threw an outcome at him that he did not approve of and knew we could get better he turn them down until we got the best. He was very upfront, answered all my questions, and very informative. So if you ask me if I would recommend him. The answer is HECK YES !!!!
- Khalacia Williams. 9/13/2017
I had the pleasure of working with Tim when he was prosecuting cases in North Charleston Municipal Court. He is a fierce advocate for your rights and knows his way around civil and criminal courts. If you find yourself in need of criminal representation or assistance with a civil matter, Tim Amey is top notch.
- Beth Woodall. 5/16/2017
My wife saw Mr. Tim Amey's law firm on a short list on an internet search and contacted his business to get help with our specific legal questions. He called back and was very helpful in answering all of our questions. He was very compassionate in hearing her, was very professional and knowledgeable. He determined that our needs were more outside of his practice of criminal law and helped me find the right attorney for the job. We were about to give up when she got the call from Mr. Amey, and he gave us more than hope. We learned that we do need a lawyer and that our problem will be taken care of with the right legal representation. Thank you again, Mr. Amey!
- Ron Erese. 8/8/2016
Tim Amey is the go to attorney if your in a bind. He came highly recommended from a contact I have and he lived up to his reputation. He immediately put me at ease in the first consultation and gave me confidence that he would take care of everything. He kept me out of court and worked magic behind the scenes. He performed a miracle in an impossible situation resulting in having my charges dropped to a careless operation. No loss of license, no record. He is well versed in his craft and is well connected throughout the legal system which allows his to work his magic. He is easy to deal with and very responsive to your needs. I highly recommend him and will use him again if ever the need arises.
- Brian Brown. 6/28/2016
I would recommend Tim to anyone that needs help. Not only did he get the result that I wanted, but he also coached me through the entire process. He was easily reachable and answered all my questions very quickly and professionally. Not only was he able to help me with the legal side of my case, but he was also able to help me deal all aspects of this case. His contacts reach very far so he was able to get me insight that no one else could. Again, I would wholeheartedly recommend Tim Amey for any situation.
- Joseph Aquilina. 6/28/2016
Have you ever gotten in trouble and thought.... who can I call? Well Tim is the person. He is just absolutely AMAZING. Give him a call if you're ever in that hard spot.
- Tiffanie Fowler. 3/3/2016
Tim Amey is the first attorney I've ever had to deal with thankfully and his service and help was nothing short of outstanding. He is very knowledgable, good with communicating and getting back to you with answers and settles for nothing less then the best possible outcome as he has proven with my case by getting all charges dropped. Would definitely recommend to anyone in need of a private attorney.
- Steven Castillo. 0/20/2016
Seriously the best lawyer EVER. Tim not only gets the job done, he gets it done with class and a smile on his face. If you are in the Charleston area and need a lawyer, THIS is the guy you need to call.
- Summer Willard. 8/23/2015
Mr. Amey came very highly recommended, and I have to agree. He was very professional from start to finish. He was in contact with me through out the entire process and even with all my questions, and I had a lot of them, he never made me feel like I was being a burden. Hopefully I won't be needing an attorney any time soon but if I do, I know who I will be calling.
- Lindsey Ingels. 6/7/2015
Was set at ease after the first consultation. Tim has worked both sides of the law and has a wealth of knowledge on both sides. Any legal proceeding can be verbose, dynamic, and vague; all of which combine to make one feel anxious and overwhelmed. Tim proved to be both professional and sympathetic in all of our dealings. He was always reachable and I felt like I was his only client; willing to answer even the smallest questions day of. And get this, he did even better than he sought to do! Who does that? At the very least, contact him if you need a good lawyer. I'm sure you'll be convinced of what I've written. Small side note: I wanted to give him 4 1/2 stars just because he's a Gamecock fan, but he did a great job so I'll give him the full five.
- John Rice. 5/20/2015
Calling all parents!!! Got teens? Traffic or other violations? Call Attorney Amey! He is your guy! He understands that teens does the darndest things sometimes. Very professional and competent! He handled a case for my son and it worked out like he said. My son had plans to do some traveling and Attorney Amey took care of everything so that my son's plans could go as planned. High 5 to Attorney Amey!
- Lennie Venning. 2/23/2015
Tim Amey came very highly recommended from a good friend of mine and I've never been more grateful! Legal issues can be difficult and a good attorney like Tim is just what you need. He was very knowledgeable of my case and kept me in the loop the whole time. I never had to step in court and I had complete confidence in Tim's abilities. I never felt ashamed or worried about the situation because Tim gave me peace of mind and displayed the utmost professionalism. I would recommend Tim Amey to anyone in the Charleston area in need of great legal representation.
- Matthew Castellano. 2/7/2015
Quick, efficient, fair, and thorough. Very knowledgeable and respectful to all parties at all times. Highly recommended.
- Pete Thiele. 1/27/2015
Johnny Law had me in a bind. When I went looking for an attorney, I was not in a great place. I had a few drinks, but not so many that I felt drunk. When I got arrested for DUI, it was a real shock. Luckily, I found Tim Amey. Lawyers in general are not my favorite people but Tim really put me at ease and handled every part of the case from top to bottom. He answered my calls, kept me out of court, and made sure my case got completely dismissed! No fines, no classes, no suspensions. So glad I hired him and would recommend him to anyone in Charleston. He'll be my first call for anything I need in the future.
- Russell Sechrist. 11/6/2014
Tim Amey is a miracle worker! He is reasonably priced for the amount of work and professionalism he displays and practices! He completely took care of me and won my case and saved me tons of money! He is hands down the best and most straight forward lawyer I have ever worked with!
- Sonya James. 10/6/2014
Mr. Amey took my case on short notice at a fair rate. He had my case deferred and eventually dismissed. I never had to appear in court. He also followed up to be sure my expungement was finalized ,as to not jeopardize future employment. Mr. Amey is fair, professional and extremely knowledgeable of the local court system. I would highly recommend his professional services!!!!
- joseph valesko. 8/23/2014
Tim did a great job for me, all charges dismissed!! In speaking and dealing with him, he was knowledgeable, professional, and concerned about my situation. Any questions or calls were promptly answered and addressed. I have dealt with many attorneys over the years due to my ignorant mistakes and Tim Amey has been the best one I've used. I wish he was an attorney in my hometown, North Charleston is lucky to have him and his services!!! Thanks a lot Mr. Tim Amey
- Mark Capps. 4/9/2014
Tim has done great work with our event planning company, Charleston Affair over the last year. I highly recommend this law firm for any business in the Charleston SC or surrounding areas.
