Amanda Highlander

Amanda G. Highlander represents clients in a wide-range of domestic relations and family law matters, from allocation of parenting time and responsibilities to dissolutions and adoptions. Prior to joining the Shaw Law Group, Amanda gained a breadth of domestic and civil litigation experience before taking a short hiatus from the practice to spend time with her children.

As a parent and partner, Amanda recognizes the gravity of the issues clients are addressing when they seek legal counsel and the importance of a client-centered practice. She is continuously focused on obtaining the most favorable outcomes for her clients be it through active litigation, settlement discussions or alternative dispute resolution.
