Amanda Matthews

Amanda Matthews is a partner at Nall & Miller where she represents corporate clients in complex, high-stakes litigation.  She has experience defending high-profile, multimillion-dollar lawsuits involving mass torts, toxic torts, and other complex commercial litigation, as well as transportation, construction defect, and healthcare/malpractice claims.  She has also handled product and general liability matters on a national scale, obtaining pro hac vice admissions in several state and federal courts across the country.  Her regional, national, and international clients look to her for guidance in the face of wrongful death and negligence claims as well as breach of contract and other business disputes.  

Background and Education

Amanda graduated from Georgia State University College of Law with an honors designation in litigation.  In law school she served on the Moot Court board, and was President of the Trial Lawyers’ Association, through which she received numerous honors and awards at local and national mock trial competitions as best advocate.  Prior to law school, she earned a Master of Public Administration and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alabama with honors and she continues to be an avid University of Alabama football fan. 

Community Involvement & Personal Interests

Amanda volunteers with, and is a former board member of, Create Your Dreams, a long-term after-school program focused on underserved and at-risk Atlanta public school students, with the goal of helping them graduate high school and pursue higher education.  She also supports various local animal shelters and pet rescue charities.

Having played piano since the age of five, and being a classically trained soprano, she still enjoys performing at local charity functions and community events.  Most of all, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband, their three children and dog.
