Amy represents clients in federal and state courts, mediations, and arbitrations in business litigation and legal malpractice cases.  She has experience in all stages of litigation, from pre-filing investigation to discovery, motion practice, and trial preparation.  Amy second-chaired a binding legal malpractice arbitration against one of the oldest law firms in San Diego, which resulted in a significant award for the client.  She also second-chaired a jury trial in a complex contract dispute which resulted in a seven-figure verdict awarding the client every penny he sought.  Amy was named a 2019 Rising Star by Super Lawyers®.   

 

Amy earned her law degree from UC Irvine School of Law, where she participated in the law school’s annual moot court competition, served as a member of the UCI Law Mock Trial Board, and was a Research Fellow for the first-year lawyering skills course. As a certified law student in UCI’s Domestic Violence Clinic, Amy represented low-income abuse survivors in restraining order trials and immigration matters. She earned a Pro Bono Achievement Award for her participation in various pro bono projects. During law school, Amy was a law clerk for Klein & Wilson.
