Amy began her legal career as a paralegal at a large law firm in Dallas, Texas. After doing most of the legal work for the attorneys she worked with, Amy decided to give the lawyer life a go. Amy graduated from Texas A&M School of Law in December 2001. After graduation, Amy was an associate at a large law firm. After Amy's daughter was born, Amy decided to leave the law firm to work part-time for Legal Aid serving low-income families. Amy eventually returned to full time law practice and in 2007 opened her own firm where she began to serve clients with estate planning needs, probate and estate administration needs as well as real estate transactions. Amy continues to serve clients in her pro bono work with Legal Aid of Northwest Texas. Amy is licensed to practice law in Texas and Oklahoma (Colorado soon).
Amy has chosen to concentrate on the Trusts and Estates area because she is passionate about helping families and "framilies" (you know, the friends you get to choose as your family) create happy and secure futures.
Amy is the proud mother of a teenager and a fur baby named Addy. Amy enjoys educating her community about estate planning and keeping folks out of court and conflict.
