    Attorney Profile

    Amanda is known for her thoughtful approach to each case; capturing the heart of the issue and laying it out in a way that is both relatable and persuasive.  Her competitive spirit and genuine concern for each client drive her approach.  While known as an aggressive advocate in court, Amanda prides herself in her ability to forecast and settle even the most contentious of cases.  "Finding the sweet spot to settle the case can sometimes feel like standing in the eye of the storm," says Amanda, "but that's what the great attorneys do."         

    Amanda serves the interests of families whose matters involve the following:

    ·       Family law and divorce, including child custody (allocation of parenting time and responsibilities) and support, estate valuations and property division, spousal support, and other related matters

    ·       Adoptions

    ·       Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

    ·       Appeals

    ·       Modifications and enforcement of orders

    ·       Paternity and parentage

    ·       Collaborative law and mediation

    ·       Same-sex marriage dissolution

    Throughout the course of her more than 14 years practicing law, Amanda has earned high marks from her clients and peers alike. In 2016 and 2019, she received the 10 Best Client Satisfaction Award from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, and in 2013, Chicago Magazine voted her as one of the area's Top Women Attorneys. She also received recognition as a Top 40 under 40 attorney from The National Advocates in 2015.

    Don't let Ms. Oliver's aggressive litigation style prevent you from recognizing her as the thoughtful and skilled mediator that she is.  In an atmosphere of law that is shifting to a more mediation-focused approach to resolution, Ms. Oliver is ahead of the game. She has an ability to navigate fair and lasting settlements that save time, money and family relationships in even the most acrimonious cases. 

    A leader in her field, Amanda has published articles and conducted lectures and seminars on a variety of family law topics. Fully committed to her practice, she maintains active memberships with the Illinois State Bar Association, The Chicago Bar Association and the Lake County Bar Association. She also serves on the National Basketball Retired Players Association's Advisory Board.
