Amy handles labor and employment matters on behalf of a variety of companies, from small, locally-owned companies to national Fortune 500 clients, and individuals.

Amy’s entire career in private practice has focused on labor and employment matters. Her extensive experience includes litigating (at the trial and appellate court level) discrimination, harassment, and retaliation lawsuits involving sex, gender, age, race, national origin, disability, and family or medical leave lawsuits. She provides day-to-day counseling of employers about human resources issues; conducts independent investigations of alleged inappropriate or unlawful conduct in the workplace; conducts human resources audits, policy reviews and training sessions on effectively managing employees; and drafts, advises on, and litigates noncompetition, nonsolicitation, confidentiality and executive employment agreements.

Amy is a Kansas City native, and her love for the community—particularly its sports teams—runs very, very deep. When she’s not practicing law, or coaching youth basketball, or watching one of her son’s games, you might very well catch her out at a Sporting KC, Royals, or Chiefs game cheering on one of her beloved hometown teams.
