Amy brings the large firm litigation experience to the small firm. Amy was a litigator in the products liability practice group at Womble Bond Dickenson, LLP. She represented major medical centers, manufacturers, and service providers on matters involving products liability, toxic torts, explosions, and medical malpractice. She developed and implemented litigation strategies, performed investigations, developed expert witnesses, drafted and argued motions, conducted discovery, negotiated settlements, prepared for trials, and drafted appeals. Beyond litigation, Amy worked with her clients to evaluate their cases, develop budgets, and create internal policies for her clients to decrease the need for litigation.

In addition to being an attorney, Amy is a wife, a mother of two (12yr. and 9yr.) and a runner. From those walks of life, Amy brings meticulous organization, a sense of humor, and an intensely competitive attitude.
