Pro Bono Volunteer of the Month-March 2020
Amanda Ireland of Ireland Law Group
Amanda is a strong legal analyst and talented writer with trial and appellate experience in complex, high-exposure matters. She earned bachelor degrees in business and economics before attending University of Nevada Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law, where she graduated in the top third of her class, was a member, and published author of the Nevada Law Journal. She has particular expertise in general and medical liability, labor and employment, insurance subrogation and business disputes. In 2018, Amanda launched the Ireland Law Group, her solo practice to handle select civil, business, family and appellate matters.
She is also on the board of the Las Vegas Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society, and a non-profit foundation to preserve and resurrect an historic theatre. Amanda admired friends who were taking pro bono cases and serving as mentors. Amanda knew she wanted to do the same. Therefore, she now serves as pro bono counsel with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada.
Her devotion to helping out those in need motivated her to take on the challenges. Amanda shared with us that, “Doing Pro Bono work is a good way to get back to your roots and rediscover the joy of choosing a case because you believe in it”. She goes on by saying, “It just feels right to offer some free or discounted legal services”. She is passionate about helping out with our Children’s Attorney Program also known as CAP. Amanda says, “You know you’re making a difference when abused or neglected children use their own words to explain what it means to have a voice”.
For her commitment to pro bono, we honor Amanda Ireland as our March Volunteer of the Month.
