About

Amanda grew up in Pell City, Alabama. She attended college at Troy University where she was very active in the theatre department. She graduated from the Cumberland School of Law in the top 20% of her class in 2015.

Prior to joining Gaines, Gault, and Hendrix as a law clerk in 2014, Amanda clerked for The Honorable Phil K. Seay, then-presiding Judge of the Thirtieth Judicial Circuit of Alabama. Now, Amanda’s practice consists mostly of automobile litigation, insurance coverage, and general civil claims, and she has defended individuals and companies in this regard in litigations for the past two years. She also handles pro ami settlements, examinations under oath, and complaints for judgment as a matter of law for various insurance companies.

In her spare time, Amanda loves spending time with her husband, Jessie, and their adopted retired racing greyhound, Chase. Jessie and Amanda are avid supporters of the arts, and Amanda often volunteers her time with the Jefferson County Academy of Theatre and Dance, of which Jessie is the Director of Dance. When not on the stage or behind a good book, they both enjoy off-roading in the Jeep and making plans for their next camping trip.
