Amanda attributes her high recovery rates to her persistence and keen ability to interpret field analysis of complex utility claims.
As a shareholder practicing in consumer and commercial collections, Amanda’s matters typically include utility property damage claims and professional services recovery. Working directly with utility claims department personnel, she counsels on all types of claims, including unpaid commercial and residential accounts, reimbursement for job site damages, motor vehicle accident damages, bad checks, equipment replevins, and theft of service.
Amanda believes that the key to successful utility property damage claim recovery hinges on the ability to interpret what the crews in the field have encountered in their assessment of the damage. Especially in contested litigation cases, the analysis of their findings is essential to uncovering responsibility and pursuing potential third parties who negligently or recklessly damage facilities.
In addition to utility claim accounts, Amanda also represents professional services providers with unpaid accounts receivables. Serving other law firms, accounting firms, consulting agencies, and other professionals, she evaluates each unique situation before recommending a viable solution.
Amanda is a key ambassador for the firm's annual United Way campaign, which has raised thousands of dollars as a direct result of her fundraising initiatives. On her days away from the office, Amanda can usually be found at one of her boy’s hockey, baseball, or swimming activities. She also enjoys family vacations to the beach.
