Amy practices all areas of family law in Maryland and D.C. Prior to joining Delaney Stafford, Amy gained invaluable litigation experience at an AmLaw 100 Law Firm in its Business Litigation Practice Group, where she focused on complex commercial litigation involving contract disputes, corporate fraud, consumer financial services, and government investigations.
Before she entered private practice, Amy served for two years as a law clerk to the Honorable Michael O’Keefe of the Domestic Relations Branch of D.C. Superior Court. In that role, she saw firsthand the adjudication of complex family litigation, often involving cases with high net-worth individuals and complex financial arrangements, as well as highly contested custody cases involving substance use or other mental health issues.
During law school, Amy was the Executive Editor for the American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law, and she authored a publication examining the application of federal sentencing guidelines in cases involving child sex offenders. In addition, through her work with the Public International Law and Policy Group, Amy provided pro bono legal assistance to civil advocacy groups in Syria and Yemen regarding peace negotiations and post-conflict preparations.
