About Amy

Learn Amy’s areas of practice.

Former victim advocate and deputy City Attorney, Amy Lepine formed Lepine Law Group in 2006 to provide access to justice for the underdog. Her firm takes on many cases that are considered unpopular among most legal practitioners, such as enforcement of oral contracts and police misconduct. Ms. Lepine has developed sharp trial skills and has built a formidable trial team. Jury verdicts have ranged from $2.8 million for breach of oral contract to enforcement of a life estate in a Marvin action. Ms. Lepine has successfully litigated personal injury and civil rights claims against various municipalities on behalf of citizens who were mistreated and injured by those charged with protecting them. Lepine Law Group continues to hold true to its advocacy roots representing plaintiffs in fair housing and employment claims, domestic violence torts, and financial elder abuse.  A hippy at heart, Amy prefers to spend as much of her time possible surfing, singing and playing guitar. She is a seeker of truth and maintains a regular spiritual practice of meditation and yoga. Amy has developed her own form of yoga that she enjoys sharing with liked-minded people.

Excellent attorney
Ms Lepine has been and continues to be an advocate for me during my contested divorce. I feel that she works extremely hard for me and will provide excellent advice.
Posted by Lee | May 22, 2015
Discerning, sharp, and zealous advocacy
Amy has provided legal advice, litigation services, and has represented us both in court and in settlement negotiations. After her own thorough investigation of the facts, she is willing to go head to head against legal juggernauts and even government agencies. If settlement is not an option because opposing counsel is bent on litigating, she will zealously litigate for her clients; as she did for us. With her assistance we prevailed on a Writ of Mandate and Administrative Mandamus case (both in the appellate court and on remand) and had a breach of contract (in a related case) dismissed with prejudice even after the judge did not render a favorable decision. Amy is not your typical attorney, she is empathetic, altruistic, honest, affordable, and sharp.
