In 2018, Amanda was selected as one of Florida Trend Magazine’s Legal Elite. All Florida practicing lawyers were asked to name attorneys who they hold in the highest regard, would recommend to others, and who exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession and by so doing, have garnered the respect and esteem of their colleagues. The final list represents less than 1.2% of active members of the Florida Bar. Naples Illustrated listed Amanda as a “Top Lawyer” in 2019 & 2020, and for her work in real estate law, Best Lawyers in America® named her for 2020 & 2021.
Amanda was born in Tampa, Florida, and grew up in Brandon and Valrico. While in law school, Amanda worked as a law clerk in Florida’s Division of Land Sales, Condominiums and Mobile Homes and served as administrative editor on the Florida State University Law Review. She practiced real estate law in Destin, Florida, prior to moving to Fort Myers, where she currently lives with her family and two dogs. Outside of the office, Amanda enjoys going to the beach with her family, cruising, and doing arts and crafts with her children.
