Amanda Ireland is a versatile litigator with a unique background and skillset. A former journalist and public relations executive with degrees in business management and economics, Amanda understands the realities and nuances of business, policy and leadership that underlie many legal problems. As a mother, immigrant, and British New Zealander, Amanda also understands the importance of family and community. 

The hallmark of Amanda's work, whether reporting news, managing reputations or practicing law, has been her rigorous focus on analysis and writing. Journalism taught her about critical facts and audiences, through her government and corporate communications roles she learned how to manage change, ambiguity and high stakes deadlines, and in law school, Amanda excelled in legal analysis and writing and was a published author and member of the Nevada Law Journal. Following a federal court externship and state civil & business court clerkship, Amanda handled business and general liability cases with regional and national firms before focusing on medical liability defense with a trial boutique. After honing her litigation, trial and appellate skills, Amanda formed her own firm in July 2018 to broaden her practice, be her own boss, and choose her own cases and clients.

Over the years, Amanda has prosecuted and defended a range of civil matters including: general and medical negligence; business and consumer contractual breaches, statutory and other violations; workplace discrimination, and other employment torts; as well as various intentional torts such as assault, slander and malicious prosecution. Amanda has also handled simple and uncontested divorces, name changes, and other domestic orders and agreement and juvenile dependency matters. 

While Amanda has handled a breadth of contested matters, she has particular insight from the medical and hospitality sectors. As a reporter, Amanda focused on healthcare, civic and crime news; in her corporate communications roles, she worked for hospitals, hotels and casinos; and as a stay-at-home mother, Amanda helped countless parents, babies and children volunteering with the PTA, youth sports and La Leche League. Her civic involvement and medico-legal interest continued in law school as Amanda presided over the student chapter of the American Constitution Society, co-founded a Health Law Society and served as treasurer on her homeowner's association. Since she became a lawyer, Amanda has worked with many physicians and performed hundreds of hours of pro bono legal services.  

Amanda is admitted to practice in all courts in the State of Nevada, in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada and District of Columbia; and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and District of Columbia. She earned her Juris Doctorate from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Boyd School of Law; a Bachelor of Arts in Economics summa cum laude from the University of Nevada Las Vegas; a Bachelor of Business Studies in Management and Massey Scholar designation from Massey University of New Zealand; and a Certificate in Journalism from Auckland Technical Institute. Amanda is a member of the American Bar Association, American Inns of Court, Clark County Bar Association, Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys, Women's Bar Association of the District of Columbia, and American Constitution Society. Her pro bono and other service has been recognized by the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada 100 Hours Club, and as an American Constitution Society Next Generation Leader

In her spare time, Amanda enjoys hiking, travel, reading, puzzles and entertaining, and staying in touch with her adult children.
