Meet Amanda

I am a mother, wife and attorney, living just outside of the Twin Cities, with my husband, our two children and our two cats.  Fifteen years ago, I laid down roots in Minnesota.  Prior to that, I was lucky enough to experience other parts of this country and world, when I lived in New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Alabama and Europe.  

If I am not at home or in the office, you will likely find me carting my teenage daughter to softball or dance or taking a bike ride around the neighborhood with my toddler daughter. 

I practice exclusively in family law because it allows me to help families when they can be most at crisis.  My office is in downtown Minneapolis, but I represent clients throughout the metro area and Twin Cities.

I graduated with a Juris Doctor from William Mitchell College of Law after obtaining dual Bachelor of Science degrees in International Finance and French, with a Minor in Economics from the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE ROLL!!). 

 

I was honored to be rated by SuperLawyers as a 2021 Rising Star and have been repeatedly named as a NorthStar Lawyer due to my ongoing pro bono contributions each year .   

I offer a complimentary 30-minute telephone consultation by appointment.  After completing my brief consultation intake form, I would be happy to discuss your legal goals and determine if I am the right fit for you.
