JANET H. AMBURGEY

Board Certified Specialist in Family Law
Asheville Divorce Lawyer

I am a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law.  I graduated from Appalachian School of Law in 2008 and have since focused my practice exclusively on family law matters.  I represent people in divorce and separation, surrounding child custody and support, through property settlement and alimony matters.  I help people build families through adoption, name changes, and marital agreements.  I protect parents and children in domestic violence matters and as parent counsel in DSS matters. I believe problem-solving a primary responsibility of a lawyer. Assisting people through family chaos, ensuring the protection of their rights and property, helping to blend and expand families, and facilitating the transition to newly designed futures, is the heart of family law practice.

A true Asheville citizen, Janet is drawn to our unique downtown atmosphere. A creative at heart, she is a baker and enjoys decorating cakes. Her favorite haunt is Charleston’s beautiful coastline and decadent seafood, and escapes there whenever possible. Janet and her canine buddy, Gunner, claim hiking at the Biltmore Estate an all-time favorite. But when the Tennessee Volunteers are on the gridiron, Knoxville is the only place you’ll find her.

Janet is married to Asheville lawyer Thomas Amburgey. They have two young children.
