Amy began her legal career in 2011, focusing on civil litigation, and became involved in community association law when she joined MAGWV in 2016. She now helps lead the firm’s litigation team. Amy’s practice is concentrated on litigation and collection matters for condominium and homeowner associations. Since arriving at the firm in 2016, she has already brought several complex matters to favorable conclusions, attending to the minute details that often spell the difference between success and failure. Her skills ensure her clients will always know the status of a matter, and that their input and concerns will be at the forefront of her thinking and strategy. She enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband and their three children, cooking and traveling.
