About Amanda

Learn Amanda’s areas of practice.

I am a highly creative legal and business problem solver. Whether I'm working for a start-up or well-established company, I structure complex business transactions, advise clients on labor and employment matters, and issue commercial real estate title insurance. Representing my clients’ business interests is my passion.

With a focus on the hospitality industry, I serve as counsel to the country's fastest-growing brunch concept, which has grown from 2 locations to 16 under my counsel.

As a serial entrepreneur myself, I formed the Business Law Group in 2017 and manage and operate the firm.  My ideal client is a professional by day and a curious side hustler by night, working to obtain lifelong financial freedom.

Aid in debt negotiations
Amanda aided me in disputing multiple items on my credit report and we were very successful. She is very knowledgeable of Louisiana laws and made me feel so comfortable during our appointments.

All around fantastic!
I’m a physician executive for a large national healthcare company. I had Amanda review my employment agreement in connection with a significant promotion. Amanda gave me a summary of the legal issues to consider in making my decision and provided me a set of responses to negotiate with my employer. She took the time to explain the pros and cons of different approaches, I was thrilled with her service and highly recommend her to do contract review.
