Amanda L. Wall

Senior Associate

A commercial and labor and employment litigator, Amanda enjoys fitting the puzzle pieces together for clients facing complex disputes.

Amanda represents clients at all phases of litigation at the state, federal and appellate court levels. She guides clients from initial investigation and strategy through motions, briefs, pleadings, discovery, arbitration, trial and – when necessary – appeal. Appreciated for her clear, proactive communication, Amanda has built a reputation for her ability to distill complex information into a format clients can easily understand. She works closely with clients to ensure that individual business goals intersect with legal strategy as she streamlines remedies regarding:

  • Business disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Construction disputes
  • Labor and employment matters

While Amanda represents clients in a wide variety of matters, she has a special focus on labor and employment issues. Amanda is fascinated to work in an area so driven by civil rights and current events and is passionate about helping companies formulate policies, trainings and procedures to protect both themselves and their employees. Keeping business goals in mind, Amanda provides proactive advice to help clients develop employment policies that guard against future costly litigation. When litigation is unavoidable, Amanda represents clients in proceedings filed in state and federal courts and administrative agencies involving allegations of discrimination and harassment.

Before joining the firm, Amanda worked in the non-profit sector, providing both direct services and overseeing licensing issues at a foster care agency. She is deeply motivated by helping others and brings this inherent drive to each case and every client.
