Amanda concentrates her practice on appellate work, construction and design defect cases, litigation stemming from construction accidents, and product liability and personal injury cases. She also has extensive experience in commercial and residential real estate litigation, including complex regulatory issues and New York City loft law matters, representing primarily building owners and managing agents.
Amanda’s clients include construction companies, trucking companies, manufacturers, medical practices, commercial landlords, restauranteurs, building owners, condominium and cooperative boards, among others. She has gained significant trial experience, including first-chair experience, and has helped secure many important wins for her clients. For example, Amanda played an instrumental role in overcoming a plaintiff’s effort to secure an injunction that effectively would have shuttered a popular New York City restaurant, which would have put approximately 100 people out of work.
Amanda has been involved in dozens of appellate proceedings, including drafting amicus curiae briefs to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the New York Court of Appeals. Her appellate experience ranges from cases centering on property damage to defamation and First Amendment rights to complex lease construction claims, among other issues.
Amanda earned her undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, from Baruch College of the City University of New York. She earned her law degree, magna cum laude, from New York Law School, where she was a John Marshall Harlan Scholar and an associate editor of the New York Law School Law Review.
