Introduction

Formerly a partner with Girardi | Keese, Amy specialized in the areas of professional liability, products liability and catastrophic injury. During her 33 years with the firm, she successfully tried over 45 jury and bench trials in both State and Federal courts. As a trial lawyer, she is known to be an intelligent, respectful, hardworking colleague and adversary who addressed each case with a practical and resolution-oriented approach and in turn has earned the respect of the legal community. Since 1997, she served on numerous court mediation panels and programs, and quickly gained a reputation as having a personable and straight forward mediation style.

Amy says, “In mediation, I hope to exhibit my long-standing belief that with each difficulty lies an opportunity. I am dedicated to uncovering all issues in a case whether they are obvious or buried deep beneath the surface with the goal of helping the parties reach a settlement and obtain closure.”
