    19 years

Amy Pivetta is from western Washington-born in Seattle, raised in Auburn. She attended the University of Washington, earning a B.A. in Anthropology in 2000 before earning a Juris Doctor from The University of Montana School of Law in 2004.

Hailing from an entrepreneurial family, Amy's grandparents owned a wholesale hardware business where she learned that your integrity is your bond. Growing up around her father's construction business, she learned that a successful business takes years of hard work, strong relationships, and appetite for risk. She also paid attention when her stepmother saw an opportunity to improve local 911 operations and training and built a successful internationally renowned business based solely upon her knowledge and skills.

It was inevitable that Amy also took the path of entrepreneurship. She has owned businesses outside of her legal career and served her local community in several elected and appointed positions.

In 2010, Amy opened APH Law PLLC and served small businesses and individuals in the south Puget Sound area. After moving to Edmonds in 2019, Amy re-positioned her practice as RISE Corporate Counsel to exclusively provide outside general counsel representation for seasoned entrepreneurs with multiple interests and thriving single enterprises needing dedicated day-to-day legal assistance.

Construction advice and litigation
Amy is the one to see about any Construction issues you may have that might lead to litigation. Lawyers are like Doctors. You don't see a Pediatrician if you need brain surgery. Not all Lawyers are up to speed when it comes to Construction legal issues. I have used Amy Professionally and would recommend her for a satisfactory outcome.

A Definite Major Purpose!
Attorney Amy Hoffman is a professional & competent person whom I got the awesome pleasure of teaming up with. But before we go any further, I want to acknowledge that I initially had teamed up with a law firm, but it only lasted about 6-months until finally my case was referred to Attorney Hoffman in September 2012. Within only a few days, I begun to see some clear, positive results. I was impressed to see the awesome work Attorney Hoffman was doing. She immediately went on the offensive and sent out all pertinent legal correspondences, which immediately caught the attention of the opposing attorney and bonding company, and in the end got the bonding company to settle early. Attorney Hoffman kept me informed every step of the way, regardless of the time of day, or day of the week. For example, Attorney Hoffman graciously permitted me to communicate with her on weekends. And this gesture took alot of stress and pressure off my mind. And earned my family's admiration and respect. She was very responsive and understanding to my family's needs. Attorney Hoffman promptly addressed any questions or concerns I had. I am very grateful towards her for continuing to exercise her fiduciary responsibility to protect my family's legal interests. Attorney Hoffman consistentlydemonstrated a high level of professionalism, competence, knowledge & experience. My family will be forever grateful for her untiring efforts. Thank you very much Attorney Hoffman. J C
