Licensed to practice in D.C. and Maryland, Amanda has a decade of litigation experience in both state and federal courts. However, when it comes to family, Amanda strongly believes court is not the ideal forum for resolving disputes. In both her practice and personal experience, Amanda has witnessed the extreme toll, both emotional and financial, a litigated divorce can take on the parties and their children. A trained mediator and collaborative attorney, Amanda strives to help those going through separation and divorce regain control of an often-overwhelming situation and create solutions through respectful and private conversations or negotiations, rather than litigation. Amanda relies on her knowledge, patience and empathy to assist those going through what can be one of the most stressful times in their lives.
Amanda received her J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School in 2006, and her B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis in 2003.
Amanda is an affiliate of the Collaborative Practice Center of Montgomery County, and a member of the following organizations: D.C. Academy of Collaborative Professionals (affiliate member), Collaborative Dispute Resolution Professionals, International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, Association for Conflict Resolution, Maryland Council for Dispute Resolution, Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, Maryland State Bar Association, Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland, and District of Columbia Bar.
