Amy devotes a significant portion of her practice to assisting schools, colleges and universities navigate an increasingly complex legal environment in order to promote their institutional goals, while ensuring compliance and mitigating exposure. Amy advises on a variety of legal matters including student disability issues, employment matters and labor negotiations, public access laws, FERPA and other records requirements, policy review, Title IX and other civil rights laws, and student discipline.

Amy’s practice also includes assisting public and private employers with all phases of the employment relationship from hiring, to advising on employee medical and leave issues and conducting workplace investigations, to defending unemployment claims.

In addition to providing training and day-to-day client counseling, Amy defends educational institutions and employers in federal and state court proceedings and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR), and other administrative agencies.

Prior to attending law school, Amy worked in public education as a social studies teacher with Teach for America in the Mississippi Delta and as a guidance counselor and coach in northern Indiana.

Beyond the practice of law, Amy enjoys spending time with her husband and children, traveling, and playing tennis and guitar.
