Amanda’s practice encompasses a wide range of matters, including construction, securities and shareholder litigation, government investigations, and administrative appeals.  She represents a broad range of clients across diverse industries, advising individuals and businesses on both litigation and business matters.  She has experience drafting general contracts, subcontracts, and consultant agreements, while also advising clients through all stages of the litigation process.  Amanda is well versed in complex e-discovery and privilege issues, frequently handling large data matters for litigation, internal investigations, and government inquiries. She is also an active member of Mintz’s Construction Law Practice Group, helping represent property owners, developers, contractors, and subcontractors in construction disputes. 

Amanda maintains an active and robust pro bono practice for which she received the Lawyers for Civil Rights Pro Bono Award. Her previous immigration experience before joining Mintz has allowed her to assist on multiple immigration pro bono cases, spanning from asylum to naturalization issues.  She worked with a team of Mintz attorneys researching and drafting an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 census form and represented the NAACP – Boston Branch as an intervenor in a high-profile case regarding the admissions criteria for Boston’s highly selective public schools.     

While in law school, Amanda served as an article editor for the Suffolk University Law Review and volunteered with the Suffolk Law Innocence Clinic. She also spent a summer as a judicial intern at the Massachusetts Superior Court and worked during her third year of law school as an immigration law teaching assistant.
