OVERVIEW AND EXPERIENCE

Originally from Wisconsin and the Chicagoland area, Amanda received her undergraduate education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010 where she studied Wildlife Ecology and Natural Resources. An ambition to practice environmental law brought her to Pace University in Westchester County, New York where she instead found an early affinity for the practice of Estate Planning. Amanda interned at the Westchester County Surrogate’s Court for the Honorable Anthony Scarpino, worked for a small estate planning law firm, and served as a Student Attorney for the Equal Justice America: Disability Rights\Health Law Clinic where she assisted clients with Medicaid eligibility planning, petitioning for an adult guardianship, and implementing a pooled supplemental needs trust.

Amanda graduated law school in 2013, cum laude, and moved to the District of Columbia. After gaining experience representing homebound District of Columbia seniors in their estate planning with AARP’s Legal Counsel for the Elderly, she took a detour to learn a new area of law in the field of health care compliance and worked as a traveling consultant. Relieved to be back in the practice of Estate Planning, Amanda joined Oram and Moss in 2017.

Amanda is admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the District of Columbia. She is a member of the Fairfax County Bar Association (the Wills, Trusts, and Estates Section) and the Women’s Bar Association of the District of Columbia.

A dedicated Badger fan, Amanda is also a birder, lover of fashion, and a home cook. Amanda and her husband, Kevin, live in the District of Columbia with their many houseplants.
