AMY DODELL, Esq.

Amy became an attorney because she truly enjoys helping others with their legal issues. She developed a passion for the practice of law at a young age when she began her career in the legal field as a file clerk at the age of 16. She trained as a legal secretary while in high school and earned her paralegal certificate after she completed her B.S. in Political Science from Arizona State University.

As her kids grew up, she eventually completed her career goals and attended Phoenix School of Law, which later became Arizona Summit Law School.

In addition, she was a recipient of the Raul Castro Scholarship for Academic Excellence. Finally, Amy was the sole graduate to be presented with “The Practice Readiness Award” at commencement.
While Amy’s legal career as a file clerk, legal secretary and paralegal allowed her to work in several legal areas, one particular area, accident law, allowed her the opportunity to do what she loves most: helping others. Amy has extensive experience working with clients in the area of accident law, car accidents, slip and fall, dog bites, bicycle and motorcycle accidents. She has worked on thousands of cases throughout her legal career and as an attorney she is highly qualified to help you navigate your accident claim.
