Amelia’s practice focuses on insurance defense, litigation, and trials, and she has defended municipal, corporate and individual defendants in her 25 years of practice.

In addition to her litigation experience, Amelia worked as a court clerk to the Honorable Judge Mark Finkelstein in Kings County Civil Court.

Since she was already a certified mediator, she found this skill useful in resolving disputes with pro se litigants in court.
Amelia studied drama in college and credits much of her success at trials to her theatre background. On a personal level, she enjoys watching Broadway plays, visiting museums, hiking, swimming, traveling and playing tennis with her husband and their three teenagers on weekends.
