Amanda Batsche completed her undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University, College Station and went on to complete her law degree at St. Mary’s University School of Law. While at St. Mary’s she received a Dean’s Scholarship and was inducted into Phi Delta Phi Legal Honors Fraternity. She also participated on the external advocacy mock trial team and advanced to the semi-finals in the Wayne and Maxine Scott Negotiation Competition. Upon graduation she was awarded a Pro Bono Legal Services Award.
As a recipient of numerous awards (see her accolades below) throughout her legal career, Amanda is on the mission to empower families by educating parents and guardians on how to protect their families, the importance of estate planning documents, and designating guardians for your children. She excels in guiding her clients through the overwhelming labyrinth of financial and legal decisions to create the essential documents that take care of their families. Her previous experience in litigating probate and guardianship cases has given Amanda the perspective and shown her many pitfalls in the implementation of an otherwise well drafted plan. Amanda has experience advising individuals in various stages and places in life, planning for young professionals, individuals with special needs, blended families, newlyweds, and retirees.
Amanda loves learning about people’s stories, and she loves how stories can connect even the most unlikely of friends. As a young military wife, life was quickly thrown into perspective for Amanda. She understands the stress, weight, and importance of making these difficult decisions. As a mother, she understands the constant worry and desire you have to protect and provide for your children.
She’s also known for her love of urban living, cooking, baking, and helping her husband with their little “urban homestead,” including learning about gardening and raising chickens.
Amanda is passionate about serving our community by empowering families and protecting children through educating their caregivers. By educating families about estate planning (or as you will often hear her call it, essential planning), she is able to help people take an active role in what happens to their assets and loved ones long after they have lost their own voice. It’s her hope and desire that every family in our community know about the legal protections they can put in place to care for their families, especially their minor children.
Amanda’s greatest passions are raising three little boys, learning people’s stories, and having life-giving conversations.
