Amanda’s dynamic approach to litigation has already earned her a reputation for being an astute, forceful advocate. She began her career as a prosecutor and has since leveraged that experience to successfully litigate a myriad of cases, including multi-million dollar real estate matters, simple business and insurance cases, and consumer protection actions.
Following her work as a prosecutor, Amanda’s time with the City of Philadelphia Tax Unit gave her invaluable insight into Philadelphia tax and real estate issues, including tax assessment appeals, tax lien sales, judgment execution, and Philadelphia business and net profits lawsuits. She now utilizes that knowledge and expertise to help private individuals and businesses with a variety of property and real estate tax matters.
Amanda is also familiar with insurance defense work and has extensive experience handling such cases, from motion practice to discovery strategy, and negotiating settlements to trying cases at the administrative, arbitration, trial court and appellate levels.
Although she always prepares to vigorously defend or vindicate her clients’ rights at trial, Amanda works with her colleagues to get the best outcome for her clients according to what makes sense for their needs.
Amanda regularly updates her blog, Philly Tax Jawn, with posts and discussions dealing with Philadelphia taxes. The blog is found here: http://philly.tax
