Amanda A. Simpson is a principal and the office litigation manager of the Orlando, Florida, office of Jackson Lewis P.C., a co-leader of the firm’s Restaurant industry group, co-leader of the firm’s Privacy and Data Litigation group, and a core member of the Class Actions and Complex Litigation and Wage and Hour practice groups. Amanda believes it is her professional calling to stand with and for her clients to educate, minimize legal risks, and when faced with litigation achieve the most advantageous outcome in every case.
It only took litigating one highly complex case through trial in federal court early in her career for Amanda to be certain that her practice would primarily involve class actions and complex litigation. For Amanda, to play a small part in shaping the law by ensuring her clients’ interests are represented in court is a privilege. She knows that at the heart of every significant litigation is the employer’s business and works to strategically uncover the truth behind a plaintiff’s allegations. Defending a class action is synonymous to a high-wire balancing act – the stakes are high, but methodically and strategically planning every step can get her client to the other side safely. By efficiently marshalling resources, Amanda is energized by leading teams of her Jackson Lewis colleagues, united in the common goal of helping the client defend against serious allegations.
