Amanda is a thoughtful and accomplished litigator, and she truly exceeds client expectations as a defense trial attorney. Her skills in the courtroom have earned her a sought-after reputation when a case goes before a jury or judge. For example, in a trace benzene matter, Amanda won a complete defense verdict for our Fortune 500 client in plaintiff-friendly Madison County, Illinois. She also obtained a defense verdict for a railroad in a FELA action tried in Hennepin County, Minnesota.
Her success in the courtroom is partly due to her ability to explain a difficult set of facts to a jury in a way that makes them understand the client’s position. Amanda loves being able to dig into the details of a case and learn the industry or science behind the issue at hand to better arm her defense. Not only is she thorough and insightful, but Amanda is sensitive to balancing client’s business interests with the goals of litigation.
In her spare time, Amanda loves reading and spending time outdoors hiking, walking, gardening, or spending time with her husband and daughters.
