Before joining Mallor Grodner LLP in 2014, Amy was for several years a partner at a large Indianapolis law firm. Prior to her legal career, Amy had the opportunity to hold high-level positions in government and business. She credits that experience with teaching her the value of building trust and respect, even between adversaries; with broadening her perspective, beyond legally-based solutions; and with giving her an unshakable belief in the potential to improve people's lives. Amy is involved in her community and serves on the Board of Directors of Peace Learning Center.
