Amanda is the daughter of a New York State law enforcement officer who was injured in the line of duty. This experience has given her a unique understanding of the claimant’s perspective during the process of applying for disability benefits as well as the resulting impact on a claimant’s family. From this exposure, Amanda gained an increased interest in the intersection of the law, healthcare, and governmental policy making.
With this passion in mind, Amanda earned her B.A. in Political Science from Niagara University in 2016, and in 2019 her Juris Doctor from Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, Rhode Island. There, Amanda was active in pro bono programs educating the public on the application process for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. She served as a Student Attorney in the Veteran’s Disability Appeals Field Clinic where she earned a CALI Excellence Award for work with Veterans Appeals. After hearing stories of how many individuals with disabilities fear that their impairments would negatively impact their ability to care for their families, Amanda focused on the estate planning and probate processes so that she could be a better advocate for her clients.
Before joining the Law Offices of Kenneth Hiller, Amanda served as a law clerk and associate attorney in various firms in Buffalo and in Providence, Rhode Island. She served as a founding member of the Law Student Wellness Committee and the Vice Justice for Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity chapter at Roger Williams University School of Law.
As a Buffalo native, Amanda is currently re-acquainting herself with WNY. When she can Amanda is exploring the various landscapes of WNY, camera in hand, and playing with her rescue dog, Spencer.
Amanda is admitted to practice in New York, the Western District of New York, and the District of Columbia.
