During her career, she has handled all aspects of litigation including jury trials, contested hearings, and appeals. Amy earned her certifications as a mediator, with the additional family law specialization training, as well as a collaborative lawyer, in 2019.
Amy describes herself as an empathetic listener, a straight shooter, and a fierce advocate with the sole goal of helping each client find creative solutions and sustainable outcomes. Her door is always open to colleagues for mentoring and she speaks on various issues, such as adoption, when needed. She has also taught paralegals through UTSA's Paralegal Certificate Program since 1999 and enjoys sharing her knowledge and helping to shape the future of the legal field.
