Biography

Amanda’s passion has always focused on finding creative and personalized plans for her clients – no two estate plans are the same! Prior to practicing law, Amanda received her BA, cum laude, from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, where she majored in Business Administration with a dual concentration in Accounting and Economics. Her business background is a tremendous asset in effectively communicating with her client’s team of financial advisors, accountants and other business professionals to make sure she is protecting their assets and truly understanding their financial goals.

Amanda graduated from Western New England University School of Law and has spent her years since in private practice, practicing in the areas of Estate Planning and Probate. In addition to co-authoring an article with the Center for Telehealth and e-Health Law she has been a National Business Institute (NBI) presenter at a seminar on Medical and End of Life Decisions. Amanda is passionate about educating clients on the need to address important medical decisions during their lifetime and retaining control of their medical wishes – an often overlooked part of an estate plan.

Who is the right person to serve as trustee? How can you leave assets to a beneficiary and protect them from potential creditor, or divorce issues? Concerns about your child’s inheritance disqualifying them from receiving state aid? With a family of her own, Amanda is committed to taking the time to counsel families to create a plan that addresses these questions and is a plan that the clients understand and are proud of.

Aside from her role as an attorney, wife and mom, Amanda’s passions include cooking, baking, hiking and traveling.

Legal Answers
Q. My father passed away and didn't have a will.. How can I become executor of his estate so i can close out his account's?
A: From the brief facts described, you will need to file an application with the probate court in the state of domicile. There are a few different forms that may need to be filed depending on your circumstances and how the assets were titled. Some assets may have a beneficiary already listed, or may be jointly held. In those cases you need to file forms with the institution. Dying without a will means that his assets will pass via intestacy. That means that depending on what relatives are alive, different people will inherit.

Keep in mind that there are timing issues where certain filings are required in a certain amount of time after death. The process can be confusing and take quite a bit of time. Most probate attorneys will offer a free consultation to evaluate your situation and let you know if they believe you will need an attorney or if you can handle it on your own. If you contact the Probate Court they are usually helpful to individuals filing themselves. ... Read More
