She also has extensive experience in mediation and negotiating settlements for clients.
Prior to attending law school Amanda attended York University where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts, graduating Cum Laude, and proceeded to pursue her master’s degree in political science. Her decision to attend law school stemmed from her fierce sense of justice nurtured by her time in academia.

As a result of her time in the clinic system, Amanda has significant experience assisting vulnerable clients with complex needs. She prides herself on her ability to provide empathetic and competent service to all of her clients facing significant barriers to justice.
Amanda’s passion for justice has lead her to a practise focusing on criminal and employment law. She proudly accepts Legal Aid Certificates and she will put her utmost effort into advancing the interests of all of her clients.
