Amy grew up in Los Angeles, California, and earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Barbara and law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law in 1999.
During law school, Amy worked in the Juvenile Dependency Court System. After being admitted to the California State Bar, Amy continued her work in the Juvenile Dependency Court System and represented parents and children dealing with issues such as physical, sexual and drug abuse, neglect and domestic violence. Although emotionally challenging, Amy took great satisfaction working with families and especially representing and protecting the best interests of the children.
Amy then went into private practice with Donald J. DeVries in Almaden Valley. She focused on the areas of trust administration, estate planning, probate, conservatorships, guardianships, and family law.
After ten years Amy decided to start her own practice and continue providing legal services to her community. Amy is following her passion of providing counsel to families and individuals who face the important task of preparing a living trust or dealing with the often challenging times surrounding the death of a loved one.
Amy knows the importance of community and enjoys living and working in Almaden Valley. Amy, her husband Mark, and their two children live in Almaden. Amy is very involved in her children’s’ school community at Williams Elementary. When not in the office, Amy can often be found volunteering at school, or cheering on her kids at their baseball, basketball, and soccer games.
