Most frequently, Amy represents business entities in commercial litigation matters including contract and internal business disputes. 

As a trial lawyer, she represents both plaintiffs and defendants before the Circuit Courts in St. Louis City and County and has successfully argued before the Missouri Court of Appeals and Missouri Supreme Court.
