Overview

Amy applies her meticulous eye for detail to every aspect of client concerns, from a policy draft to courtroom strategy.

Amy protects insurance clients’ interests at all stages of operation. Whether working with small local businesses or companies that operate coast-to-coast, she is known for her scrutiny in research, analysis, drafting and strategy. Amy keeps in mind the issues at hand as well as scoping business needs and statutes over time, providing durable counsel that grows with the life of auto, property, workers’ compensation and health insurers. Additionally, Amy listens to each clients’ goals in order to customize solutions, knowing there is no one-size-fits-all strategy when it comes to insurance.

When disputes develop, Amy is adept at protecting clients in negotiation or litigation. She has successfully represented numerous clients’ Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) plans asserting reimbursement rights. Clients also appreciate her background in representing creditors on a wide range of bankruptcy matters, including adversary proceedings.

Knowing that compliance and preparation is the strongest defense, Amy also collaborates with clients in developing training that allows them to mitigate risk and process claims more efficiently on a day-to-day level.
