Amy has a vested personal interest in helping her clients. She recognizes the importance of understanding each individual client’s story before analyzing the legal case. Part of what defines quality legal representation is trust, and hearing the concerns of the individual client is where the process of building trust starts for Amy. Her empathy and desire to provide exceptional representation, particularly when the odds are stacked against an individual, defines her work. Amy’s drive is personal, too. Her experience with a sibling’s traumatic brain injury, resulting from an auto collision, is a significant part of what motivates her as an attorney. In fact, she joined the team at Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. specifically to be part of a firm that is dedicated to helping people with traumatic injuries.

Clients and colleagues attest to Amy’s strong work ethic and core set of values, traits that she traces to her humble roots in West Virginia and are undoubtedly at the foundation of her present career accomplishments. Her values and background are also part of why she believes in taking every single call that comes into the firm seriously. Quality legal representation is built on mutual respect, and Amy ensures that develops by treating each inquiry with genuine empathy and respect. Her diverse experience helps make Amy one of the most personable attorneys in the fields of personal injury law.
Besides compassionate and personal legal representation, Amy has been recognized for an extraordinary commitment to excellence in her work. While studying at WVU, she earned a coveted spot on both the moot court National Team and the Jessup International Law moot court team – a true testament to her impressive abilities and remarkable drive. Amy also competed in the annual WVU Lugar trial competition, where she earned first place. Her accomplishments exemplify Amy’s dedication to her clients as a practicing attorney.
