Attorney Profile

Amanda Butler is a New Orleans based attorney, managing partner and founder of the Business Law Group.  Amanda's legal career is laser-focused on making the business and real estate development ideas of her clients come to life.  Helping a small local business grow into a powerhouse is Amanda's forte.

Navigating business law can be challenging and complex. Simple errors today can cost your business thousands of dollars in revenue or lost opportunities tomorrow.  As a fellow business owner and counsel to businesses across a number of different industries, Amanda understands the challenges that small business owners face.  Partnering with an attorney that understands your challenges and your vision, can help you stay one step ahead of the growth curve.
