Amanda Sundarsingh joined our firm in 2012. She concentrates her practice in the area of personal injury with an emphasis on children's rights and foster care related issues, national multi-district product liability litigation, medical malpractice, and business litigation. She handles litigation in several venues including the state, federal, and appellate courts.
Amanda's clients benefit from the wealth of courtroom and litigation experience she has derived from very challenging legal environments. She began her legal career with the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, working as a law clerk and Attorney Ad Litem for abused and neglected children involved in the foster care and delinquency systems. Prior to joining the firm, she also served the State of Florida as a staff attorney for the Children's Legal Services Division of the Department of Children and Families, and as a Program Attorney, for the Statewide Office of the Guardian Ad Litem's Pilot Permanency Project in Broward County, Florida.
Ms. Sundarsingh was born in Trinidad & Tobago, and relocated to Florida as a child. Her zealous advocacy for her clients today is backed by a distinguished academic career. She attended Florida Atlantic University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in political science, magna cum laude, and thereafter, earning her Juris Doctorate at the University of Florida's Levin College of Law, also magna cum laude. During her law school career, she earned several awards for maintaining the highest grade in her classes including Legal Research and Writing, Legal Drafting, and Family Law Clinical Preparation, a law school clinical program where she provided legal services to indigent clients in the local community of Gainesville, Florida. She was also invited to join the University of Florida's Journal of Law and Public Policy, an invitation which she accepted.
Amanda continues to prove her commitment to her community both inside and outside of the courtroom as an active member of both professional and civic groups. She is a member of the Florida Bar Association and the Florida Association of Women Lawyers, and serves as Board Member of the Lake Worth High School Dollars for Scholars Foundation, an organization funding and promoting college education for underprivileged youth. A passionate defender of victim's rights and safety, Amanda also serves as a member of the Florida Association of Counsel for Children, an organization which advocates for the legal representation of children involved in child welfare proceedings in the State of Florida.
When she is not working, Amanda enjoys spending time with family and friends. She attends Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in West Palm Beach, Florida, where she serves as a Sunday school teacher, is a member of the Women's Book Club, and belongs to a Feeding Program serving the homeless in Rivera Beach, Florida. She loves to cook and bake cupcakes, and she is often fondly referred to as "The Cupcake Lady." "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." Amanda has dedicated her personal and professional life to doing just that.
