About Amanda

Working for the Workers’ Compensation Division for eight years, I know how difficult it is for injured workers to protect their rights against insurance companies with lawyers whose sole objective is to guard the insurance company checkbook.  The system is complex, and it can be confusing and intimidating for those unfamiliar with it.  Time and again, I have seen hardworking employees suffer on-the-job injuries that leave them suddenly unable to work, struggling to obtain medical treatment and support their families on little or no income, all the while trying to navigate a legal system that seems stacked against them.

My Role

I am here to help you to understand this complicated process and to use my expertise in this field to secure for you the full extent of workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled.  I am committed to listening to your concerns, keeping you informed of the facts and events in your case, and advocating for you so you can concentrate on what is truly important: healing from your injury and supporting yourself and your family.  I look forward to helping you get back on your feet.
