Amy strives to tailor her work to each client’s unique and specific needs. It is important to Amy that her clients feel heard and taken care of at all times. As a mother of two small children, Amy truly understands how important family is and is honored to have clients that put their trust into her and her work.

Amy began her legal career as an associate attorney and litigator for a large corporate law firm in San Francisco.

Outside of the law, Amy loves to bake with her four year old, play peek-a-boo with her one year old, and take family walks to get coffee and bagels every Sunday morning with her rescue poodle-mix Pepperoni.
