About Amy

Amy Halevy chairs the firm's labor & employment practice group. She counsels and represents employers in all areas of employment law.  She guides her business clients in the preparation and application of employment policies and procedures.  Amy also provides valued advice in assisting with complex and high level company investigations when there are concerns of employee misconduct or in other areas related to the employment relationship.  She serves in the role of trusted advisor by helping clients with difficult employee terminations.

Amy has more than 30 years of experience defending employers before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state agencies against allegations of race, sex, national origin, religion, age, and disability discrimination.  In representing clients in employment litigation, she has been successful in defeating claims at the summary judgment stage in state and federal court.

While Amy is experienced in representing employers in the adversarial process, she also recognizes the value of attempting to resolve claims in mediation or through other informal settlement negotiations. Amy's years of experience in this area make her extraordinarily qualified to guide employers through this process and achieve a positive outcome for her clients.

Amy is good at advice, trial work and knows the law. Amy’s main strength is her deep technical knowledge and broad client base, [giving] her a good perspective on employment issues and questions.
