Amanda graduated from Texas Wesleyan University (now Texas A&M University) School of Law, where she served as an Articles Editor for the school’s law review. Amanda spent her law school tenure clerking for judges and litigation firms in order to pursue a career in commercial litigation. After completing a one-year clerkship at the Second Court of Appeals in Fort Worth, Amanda dedicated the first half of her legal career to litigation prior to transitioning over to corporate transactions and general counsel services. She draws on her litigation experience regularly in negotiating key contractual provisions, mitigating risk and handling periodic business disputes. Amanda advises her business clients on various transactions, both large and small, ranging from asset purchase agreements to IP licensing, e-commerce, entertainment agreements and commercial leases. She regularly shares advice and support with women founders and women-centered startups, volunteering her time as a speaker at founder events, academic seminars, and large conferences.

Prior to law school, Amanda graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with a B.A. in Political Science, minoring in Philosophy. Amanda grew up in a small town in central Indiana but has found that Texas is her true home. She lives north of Dallas with her husband Joe, their two boys, and two Pekingese pups. She enjoys reading, having esoteric debates about movie plotlines, and going on spontaneous road trips.
