A native of Suffern, NY, Amanda came full-circle when she joined Reiter Law as an associate. She began as a legal intern and continued to grow with the firm through law school. Amanda now focuses her practice on wills, trusts and estates, including estate planning, estate administration, special needs planning, charitable planning, Medicaid planning, asset protection, business succession, guardianship, and nonprofit law.
