"Amy Griggs was a part of my legal team during a very emotionally difficult civil case. She had incredible bedside manner and was extremely knowledgeable about the laws in this area. I felt comfortable knowing that she had my back in negotiations and that she was going to uncover all the information necessary. I would recommend her in a heartbeat."

Clients who work with Amy Griggs are getting the benefit of a lawyer who has experienced medical malpractice cases from all sides. Very few lawyers have the life experiences Amy has, making her perspective truly unique.

While starting her legal studies during her first year of law school, a close member of Amy’s family received negligent medical treatment triggering a claim for medical malpractice. Amy has lived through the process of a medical malpractice lawsuit and knows firsthand the stresses a family faces. She now brings a unique sensitivity to her work on behalf of her clients.

In addition to knowing what it’s like to be a family member in a lawsuit, Amy was previously a medical malpractice defense lawyer.

Amy develops careful, personalized legal strategies for each client to enable them to get their lives back on track.

Amy’s priority is to help families through the legal process with compassion and understanding. When a family is in need of a personal injury lawyer, it’s a stressful and complicated time. Amy helps families understand the process of litigation, from what they can expect during the investigation and work-up of a case through the litigation process toward trial or mediation. Amy creates a true partnership with her clients, allowing them to stay involved, feel prepared, and to know what to expect at each phase of litigation.

Litigation is stressful and the choice of a lawyer is important. Amy understands that choice and is available to speak about how her practice works to minimize the stress of litigation for the client while guiding the client through the legal system toward the best recovery possible.

Amy also has significant experience teaming with other lawyers on a referral basis to assist during discovery, mediation, and at trial and to bring her expertise and knowledge to achieve resolution of referral cases. Amy has been awarded by Best Lawyers for Personal Injury Plaintiff and Medical Malpractice Plaintiff for DC.
