Amy Miller is a member of the firm’s Litigation section and oversees litigation in the D.C. Metropolitan area. She focuses on high-stakes commercial litigation, business torts, contractual disputes and appeals. Her practice spans federal and state courts in Virginia, the District of Columbia and Maryland, as well other venues across the country.
She also represents clients in arbitrations and administrative agency proceedings. Amy joined Buchanan after spending the bulk of her career at a large law firm where she defended numerous complex and class action lawsuits on behalf of major corporations, and also led appellate teams in these actions.
In addition to her commercial litigation experience, Amy has defended many major financial services institutions, including litigating all aspects of the investor/servicer/borrower relationship. These claims include challenges arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Servicemembers’ Civil Relief Act (SCRA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), preemption under the National Bank Act (NBA), Home Owners’ Loan Act (HOLA), and other federal and state laws.
Amy began her legal career focusing on employment law, defending employers against class action, collective action and single-plaintiff employment claims arising under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other federal and state employment laws.
She has counseled employers on all issues arising out of plant shut downs and mass layoffs under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), workplace investigations, social media issues implicating the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), developing all manner of employment policies and procedures, and training and counseling geared toward risk avoidance. She continues to counsel and defend clients in employment-related issues today, in conjunction with her commercial litigation practice.
Amy’s clients rely on her for responsive, practical advice that is not only legally sound, but also recognizes their culture and business needs. She spends a great deal of non-billable time getting to know a client’s business and, just as importantly, the individuals who run the business. Bottom line: Amy becomes truly invested in each client’s success.
Clients say that Amy is always accessible, provides valuable insights, and can be relied upon to “fix it.” Prior to law school, she spent several years working in human resources and public policy, which has informed her common sense and cost-effective approach to solving problems with clients.
