About Amanda

Learn Amanda’s areas of practice.

I graduated from LSU in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a Minor in Sociology.  I then attended LSU's paralegal studies program and received a certificate in 2005.  I was then hired by Miller and Hampton Attorneys as a personal injury legal assistant. 

 

After working side by side with Attorney Gregory Miller for 5+ years, I attended Southern University Law Center full time while still employed with the firm.  While in law school, due to my previous experience, I received awards in Advanced Legal Writing and Legal Research.  I received my Juris Doctorate in 2013 and Miller and Hampton then became "Miller, Hampton, & Hilgendorf."

 

Over the last 8 years, I have been involved with the firm in various personal injury matters as well as litigation through various employment laws including Title VII and state discrimination laws, Federal Labor Standards Act, Family Medical Leave Act, and Unpaid Wage claims, to name a few. 

 

I have enjoyed helping those being treated unjustly whether its by an insurance company or by an employer.  Our firm believes in protecting people's rights.

Helped me when she never had to.
I submitted my question and she answered me quickly. She also responded to a second question I had regarding a suppressive ex employer. If I ever have a need for an attorney, she would be my first choice.

employment termination
Mrs.. Hilgendorf answered my question of termination remedy, After consulting directly through this website, Mrs. Hilgendorf was quick to respond, and again responded quickly, after she researched answers to a couple of follow up questions I had, about my potential case. Although I was disappointed with the results, Mrs. Hilgendorf went out of her way to satisfy my answers, I very much appreciate what she did, and would most certainly hire or recommend Mrs. Hilgendorf..

Had an issues with employer. She handled it all for me!
Mrs. Hilgendorf is amazing at her job! Great communication, excellent at handling all your troubles and worries. I was concerned about being wronged by my employer. I asked her if what was going on legal. She informed me that it was not and she pretty much took the wheel from there. After voicing my concerns about it all and she gave me reassurance. I can go on and on about her. Great great great!!!!!

Slur offshore
Nope did not get a lawyer, company did what they had to do to protect them selves. Now I'm waiting on them to see what's going to happen to me. Even though I try to switch hitch they won't let me. Maybe once they let me go then I can get a lawyer.
