Very professional and helpful. She was able to give me great personalized advice on how to move forward with my particular case, and things to think about and be aware of. Speaking with her was extremely helpful and relieved a lot of stress and anxiety I was having surrounding my case. I would definitely recommend her for any issues regarding family law.



I would like to express my gratitude in the work you did for me. I not only feel you were a great lawyer, but also one with common sense, which I feel helped us to be successful by understanding the things that needed to be pointed out. If ever I have another family issue I will be sure to call you. I wish you continued success. Thanks again, take care.


Hi All,

I just want you all to know how prepared Ms. Mattis was and what a strong case she made! I know you all did much to help prepare for this and I just want to say a BIG thank you to all!

Best advice I have been given in this whole process: "get a lawyer and get a good one!"


You have always had my gratitude and, if kind words and thoughts do carry energies throughout the universe, then you have a lot of lights out there with your name on them for I have often told others of your help.

Margaret L.P.

Ms. Mattis is professional, strategic, ethical, thorough, and compassionate. She has an exceptional understanding of the law and people which makes her an excellent advocate for parents who are trying to get a healthy and achievable resolution for their kids in the short and long term. Her team is also wonderful, Cassidy is a gem. They’ve all made sure everything is completed on time and accurately. They don’t miss anything and were able to find and correct errors or discrepancies for everyone. We’re deeply grateful for Ms. Mattis and her team for securing our safety and a fair resolution through such a difficult transition.

Mattis Law A.P.C. was referred by a prominent L.A. firm who did not practice in San Diego. The entire firm is extremely proficient and timely in their craft. In court, Amelia Mattis is extremely professional, calm, to the point and maintains superb focus when others attempt to press her. Her client preparation guidance for mediation was excellent and assisted me in avoiding turbulence no matter what spewed from my ex-wife.

Above all, Mattis Law showed great concern for my children and I during the entire judicial process. Look for this firm to remain on the California Best Attorneys List for years to come as they deserve that designation.

Amelia and her team have been fantastic. Her firm is 100% in integrity and can be fully counted on to help with all your family law needs. Thank you, Mattis Law!

Strong educated women at this law firm. I have used them twice for two cases and they got the job done in impeccable time. I won both cases and never had to appear in court

–A.H. from Google

I highly recommend Mattis Law for your family law needs. Amelia is great and helped me get a favorable custody outcome. She listened to the details, clearly and conscisely layed out my case, indentified mistakes in the opposing parties filings, strategically responded and was phenomenal in the courtroom. From my experience, trust me when I say - you want Amelia on your side when its your day to see the judge.

Together with Cassidy, they make a great team - are always responsive, made sure I was informed and prepared the entire process. Mattis Law was a true blessing in a time of turmoil. Very grateful for them!

–J.R. from Google

I have had a very pleasant and smooth experience with Amelia. She took on my case after I started out with a different attorney. She is very experienced with high conflict cases and is very professional, courteous and prompt. I will continue using her services. Cassidy has also been a huge help in my case. She is very kind and has made herself available anytime I needed her. I had a very difficult and stressful case from the start. Amelia was able to fight for my childrens best interests and lead me in the right direction. I am beyond happy with my experience and would highly recommend. Thank you again!! I am forever grateful for you all!

–M.F. from Google

Amelia and Cassidy assisted me in getting my child custody order enforced in such a short period of time! They seemed to really care about my needs.

I am greatly appreciative of the advice and information Amelia has provided for me. I am currently going thru a situation where my name is not on the birth certificate so I reached out to see what are some of the steps to take in order to protect myself in case of any legal action. She mapped out s few options and was very knowledgeable. For any parent that is going through difficulties communicating with the co parent, make sure to protect yourself legally. Amelia is my go to source!

–W.K. from Google

I feel so grateful to have found Ms. Mattis...at a time in my life when it would have been an understatement to say I was beyond devastated and terrified. I was in another country, facing a high conflict divorce, jurisdictional issues over child custody and I had very little support...I would highly recommend Ms. Mattis to any parent finding themselves in need of experienced, expert family law attorney.

–N. from Google

Amelia and the team at Mattis Law, A.P.C. have exceeded our expectations during a time that has been so stressful for our family...We are so relieved to be working with them, they came highly recommend and now we know why and endorse that.

I would highly recommend this firm for anyone needing a family lawyer.

–J.B. from Google

Excellent attorney in helping with my case on custody and alienation issues. Very thorough, well informed and caring.

–N.D. from Google

Ms. Amelia Mattis and her dream team have been thoroughly professional and impressively compassionate working their magic behind the scenes and in the courtroom. I am a Paternal Grandma who for the past 14 months have been blocked from seeing or talking to my Granddaughter. It was a difficult decision to legally pursue Grandparent visitation rights. My granddaughter has been a loving highlight for the past 10 years to our family. Ms. Mattis helped me chronicle not only my involvement, but also site similar cases to support the case. I am so very pleased with the victorious outcome and strongly recommend this firm for family court services.

–A.H. from Google

Caring, honest, go over and above.

–A.A. from Google

...I worked closer with Attorney Mattis through the process of my divorce and child support/ custody case. Ms. Mattis is extremely knowledgeable in her field and honest about the reality of the case. The team had to deal with my emotions throughout the case, and anyone going through similar situation can understand the intensity it brings, but they always stayed professional and responsive. Ms. Mattis was on top of everything, and I can definitely say she will be the attorney I can come back to if anything arises in the future.

–S.G. from Google

If you're looking for a family law firm to represent you in your child custody case, I strongly urge you to use this firm's services. They held my hand through every step of the process. I knew nothing about family law, and this was the scariest experience of my entire life. I don't know how I would have gotten through it, without the caring support of Amelia Mattis and her sympathetic staff. Everyone was patient and professional through some very sticky and high stress situations. Not only is Amelia unbelievably sharp, she also genuinely cares about my daughter's best interests. Feel free to contact me with any questions about working with them. I am happy to help.

Amelia walks into court... every word out of her mouth is so precise, factual, and loaded with information. When she speaks, she does it in a way that settles all the dust and allows her verbal argument and points to be not only heard but received. She is smart as a whip, knows her stuff like the back of her hand, will work with you to get what you want but won’t lead you astray if she doesn’t think it’s doable. She’s compassionate, professional, and will absolutely work wonders for you. Highly recommend! Unlike a lot of attorneys, she will advocate hard for you and your children, but without bringing the drama, antagonism and inflammatory/smear campaign into the mix. Her office staff is wonderful too. Cassidy has been so helpful in getting communications to and from myself and anyone else who needs to be looped in. So, so thankful for Mattis Law. This is the first time in my 4 year custody case that I’ve felt like I was in good hands and feel some sort of comfort.

–Sharisa from Avvo

Amelia Mattis is a great litigator, attorney and knowledgeable. She helped me throughout this process and responded to my concerns either email or phone calls.

–Isaac from Avvo

...They took on my case with a two day notice and had my case dismissed in court. The staff and its attorneys are true professionals that are aggressive and have the client’s best interests in mind. This law firm means business when it comes to resolving their cases.

–Anonymous from Avvo

I retained Ms. Mattis for a very difficult move-away case when my ex-spouse requested full custody to take our daughter out of the country for several years. She knew exactly how to handle my case, was caring and kind, and VERY knowledgeable...

–Anonymous from Avvo

She prepared me for my Family Court Services Mediation and when our mediation date arrived, I could tell I was much more prepared than the other side, and it showed in the report we received...

–John from Avvo

...I came to them with a very complex situation and they were up for the challenge. My situation had 3 different states involved and jurisdiction of my child was at question. They were very understanding and accommodating as to my situation and were able to point me in the right direction as to what legal action to take. I feel they truly care about their clients as well as enjoy what they do. I can't thank them enough for what they've done for me and this review doesn't even compare to how much they've helped me. 100% recommend this law firm.

–Brian from Avvo

Been very helpful with my custody case dealing with alienation claims. Very thorough, well informed and caring.

–Anonymous from Avvo

I am very happy with the overall experience I had with attorney Amelia Mattis in creating a Pre-Martial agreement for my fiancé and I. Amelia’s attention to detail, fact finding, legal explanations, patience and prompt responses to inquiries/communication are all strong qualities in an attorney that I value. She is also an extremely personable legal professional that made this somewhat stressful process manageable and easy to see through completion...

–Mario from Avvo

...Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. They fully explained my case options in terms I could understand and that put me at ease. They were diligent and kept me informed of the process. They were able to achieve a favorable outcome. I would highly recommend and all the associates.

–Lorraine from Avvo

If you are dealing with a disordered ex and parental alienation, Amelia Mattis will understand what is happening and how to counter it in order to help your child and save your relationship with them. It's complicated and impossible to check your emotions at the door, so I highly recommend hiring counsel who is familiar with this nightmare. It's not quick or easy but you have no choice than to trust the system (which i'll admit is harrowing). They can only help as much as you let them - ultimately you need to educate yourself on all that is parental alienation (YouTube Dr. Craig Childress), never give up, because as long as your ex is around it IS an ongoing battle.

–A.R. from Yelp

Amelia is fantastic! She's worth every penny! You should do everything you can to keep her. She represented me so well, fought to get me custody of my children and did such a great job communicating with the judge. This attorney is bright beyond her years. I'd recommend Amelia for any divorce and custody matters.

–J.F. from Yelp

They are professionals and really know family law. I communicated my situation to multiple lawyers across the state and have never had a solid response to my situation. ...and Amelia has fought for my case as if it was her own. I cannot say enough good stuff for this team of people and highly recommend them to anyone.

–K.D. from Yelp

Very professional and knowledgeable firm, especially about child custody. They will craft a case plan with you and aggressively advocate for your rights. They are very helpful in choosing what information the judge should see and will find important in a custody case and are accessible throughout the process as issues arise.
