Amanda Schwartz is a seasoned trial lawyer who lives to help injured persons recover from insurance companies. She handles catastrophic injury cases, including major trucking accidents, construction site injuries, dram shop cases, premises liability, medical malpractice, sexual assault and discrimination cases. Although she is originally from Louisiana, she obtained her undergraduate degree with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She then graduated in the top ten percent of her class from the Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University. Upon graduating, she was inducted into SMU’s Order of the Coif. During law school, Amanda interned for Judge Mary Murphy in Dallas County. After graduating, Judge Murphy nominated her for the Order of the Barristers. The Order is highly selective and provides national recognition to the top advocates at their respective law schools.
Most graduating law students choose to work at big firms for the high pay. On the other hand, Amanda chose the satisfaction of helping out the “little guy” over money by joining a small, prominent medical malpractice firm in Dallas. During that time, she handled medical malpractice cases across Texas and Oklahoma. In 2013, she obtained a $10,561,125.75 verdict against Spearmint Rhino, after a girl was tragically killed by a drunk driver leaving the establishment. Due to the size of the verdict, Texas Lawyer magazine invited her to become a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Verdicts & Decisions “$10 Million Club.” She was honored to accept membership in this select group which was achieved by her persistence and dedication to helping injured victims. She is an invaluable asset to Shamieh Law due to her experience, hard work, and easy-going attitude.
When not representing her clients, Amanda spends her time with her daughter and puppy. She also volunteers at pet rescue organizations around the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
