Prior to joining Resnick & Louis, Amanda was Staff Counsel at United Automobile handling all aspects of insurance defense cases from pre-litigation and litigation including discovery, depositions, arbitration, experts, settlement and trial in automobile accident cases, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing cases and lien cases filed by healthcare providers. Amanda has drafted defense briefs in the Court of Appeals Division I and the Supreme Court of Arizona case Newman v. Cornerstone which upheld that UM/UIM coverage offers need not include a price. She successfully obtained summary judgment at the trial court level regarding an employee who received workers’ compensation and later claimed to be an independent contractor. The case was subsequently upheld by Court of Appeals. She also obtained a defense verdict at binding arbitration on the issue of breach of duty when a dog jumped on the man, knocking him to the ground. She also twice successfully obtained summary judgment against plaintiffs who filed for bankruptcy post-accident.
