Prior to law school, Amanda worked as a paralegal in a law firm. There she was able to help individuals who had suffered catastrophic injuries or the families of people who had lost their life due to the negligence of another. Witnessing first-hand how critical exceptional representation was in during these lifechanging events convinced Amanda that she needed a law degree to better serve her community.
During law school, Amanda was the President of the student chapter of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association and the lead citations editor for the Natural Resources Journal. She also wrote a paper that was published in the 60th anniversary edition of the Natural Resources Journal urging the New Mexico Legislature to require “black boxes” in Semi-trucks. Her paper gained the attention of state representatives, and she met with the Superintendent of Insurance to discuss the problems with the lack of Semi-Truck regulations in New Mexico.
Amanda has years of experience working for individuals in their lawsuits against hospitals, doctors, drivers, and automobile companies, and has helped clients obtain settlements over seven figures. What she enjoys most about her work is building strong relationships with her clients and finding every opportunity to strengthen their cases. Amanda is a member of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association and serves as a member of the Editorial Board for the NMTLA Journal.
Amanda Carmody is a third generation Las Crucen, the second lawyer in her family to represent New Mexicans, and the first woman in her family to earn a doctoral degree. She spends her spare time with her husband and two dogs hiking, travelling, cooking, and watching Formula One.
