For every file that crosses her desk, Amy expects to produce a high quality legal product.
Before becoming an attorney, Amy was a child welfare social worker for the better part of five years. After completing her LSAT, she was offered a scholarship to attend the University of Akron School of Law. Today, having spent almost 20 years in the creditors' rights industry, Amy continues to display a passion and commitment to quality work. For her, client service is the most important aspect of the job. She recognizes that her clients pay for a service, and if that service falls short, she can’t expect to earn their repeat business. Her goal is to offer better problem solving, availability, and a true mutually-beneficial partnership.
Practicing primarily in collateral recovery and replevins, Amy helps her clients recover on defaulted loan agreements and leases. Her matters may include traditional collection strategies such as demand letters, or more complex cases such as recoveries where violence or obstruction is a factor. She also assists with title issues, securing vehicles that are subject to criminal forfeit or seizure, counterclaim defense, compliance issues related to repossession, and the negotiation/settlement of disputes.
Amy is the mother of a beautiful little girl and the wife of a psychiatric social worker who teaches at a local university, so her life is very full! She finds relaxation in cooking, hiking, and spending time with her family and friends, but when she needs a rush of adrenaline, she jumps right into another favorite hobby: bootcamp class. Amy also volunteers on the board at Frontline Service, a non-profit community behavioral health organization that aims to end homelessness, prevent suicide, resolve behavioral crises, and overcome trauma.
