Top Rated Personal Injury Attorney in Denver, CO
Selected to Selected to Super Lawyers® Rising Stars: 2015-2017
Amanda Pfeil is an indispensable member of the Denver, Colorado firm, Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C., where she focuses her practice on personal injury and medical malpractice. Amanda primarily works with clients who have sustained traumatic brain or orthopedic injuries. She also has significant experience in sports injury cases arising from an athlete’s premature return to play following a concussion.
Immediately upon graduating law school, Amanda served as a judicial clerk with the Colorado Court of Appeals, an experience that helped her develop a strong analytic skill set. Amanda’s ability to evaluate a case and consider arguments from the perspective of a judge are among her most frequently noted strengths, and qualities that provide a distinct advantage to her clients during litigation.
In addition to her unique skill set and extensive understanding of the legal system, Amanda is dedicated to being an advocate for her clients. She loves that her work allows her to meet new people and learn every day, and Amanda’s willingness to deeply engage with every case and understand each client personally makes her an exceptional personal injury attorney. She creates the kinds of connections with clients that are essential in the effort of rebuilding their lives after an injury. Amanda also takes time to understand the medical aspects of personal injury cases. Grasping the medical details of an injury is not only an advantage in settlement and litigation, but allows Amanda to provide representation beyond the purely legal. Her service to clients extends to understanding their injury, treatment options, and the resources available to help them heal and cope. This kind of approach is what makes the client experience with Amanda unique.
Amanda credits her father for inspiring her to find a career where she could help others overcome adversity, something he did before going on to a successful career in the United States Air Force. Amanda is the first of her family to earn a traditional college degree and to go on to become an attorney. When Amanda is not working for her clients, she can be found traveling, spending time with her family, or enjoying a good book.
Amanda is licensed to practice before the Colorado Supreme Court and Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. She represents clients across the country and has been recognized for several years as a Rising Star by Colorado Super Lawyers, a recognition that is provided to no more than 2.5% of attorneys in each state.
