About Amy

Amy Halevy counsels and represents employers in all areas of employment law. She guides her business clients in the preparation and application of employment policies and procedures. Amy also provides valued advice in assisting with complex and high level company investigations when there are concerns of employee misconduct or in other areas related to the employment relationship. Amy also provides the role of trusted advisor in helping clients with difficult employee terminations.

Amy has more than 25 years of experience defending employers before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), Human Rights Division against allegations of race, sex, national origin, religion, age and disability discrimination. In representing clients in employee litigation, Amy has been successful in defeating claims at the summary judgment stage in state and federal court.

While Amy is experienced in representing employers in the adversarial process, she also recognizes the value of attempting to resolve claims in mediation or through other informal settlement negotiations. Amy's years of experience in this area make her extraordinarily qualified to guide employers through this process and achieve a positive outcome for her clients.

She is lauded by clients, with one commenting: 'She's a great listener, thoughtful and has impeccable judgment,' as well as praising her ability to 'identify key risks in developing strategies.'
