Amy volunteered as a pro bono attorney with NCVLI when she became interested in victims’ rights after participating in NCVLI’s webinar on victims’ rights during Crime Victims’ Rights Week in April 2010. Amy recently worked on an amicus curiae brief that NCVLI submitted to the United States Supreme Court in support of victims’ rights to dignity, privacy, respect, and proceedings free from unreasonable delay. Amy says that her pro bono work with NCVLI was extremely rewarding, and it has changed her perspective about litigation. “Here, the goal is not simply to obtain a good outcome in the immediate case; we aim to lay a good foundation for future litigation in the victims’ rights area.”
In early November 2010, NCVLI was lucky enough to have Amy join the legal team! Victims nationwide will benefit from Amy’s intellect, humor, and kindness.
