Originally from the South, Amanda grew up with a love for good food, good stories, and SEC football. However, Amanda was also blessed with family who taught her the value of giving back, and doing more for others than you do for yourself. With this in mind, Amanda obtained her undergraduate Social Work (BSW) degree from the University of Alabama, in 1999. Soon thereafter, Amanda began practicing in rural Alabama, connecting men, women, and children with health and social services. Amanda also provided counseling services to dual diagnosis patients- those suffering from both mental and substance abuse problems. In her practice, Amanda often found that her clients had a variety of legal issues; things above and beyond her abilities as a social worker. However, trying to get an attorney to assist her clients proved very difficult if not impossible. Amanda often saw her clients treated unfairly in the legal system solely because of conditions beyond their control such as finances, health, and race.
These experiences led to Amanda attending law school at Florida Coastal School of Law, in Jacksonville, Florida. Since graduating in 2004, Amanda has worked in a variety of legal fields including criminal defense, appellate law, housing and real estate litigation, as well as personal injury and Social Security disability claims.
In 2011, Amanda realized her dream of opening her own law firm where she can combine her legal skills with her social work and counseling background. The end result is Meadows Law Group, P.A., where she can finally address "the whole problem."
