Amy K. Slaughter understands that the attorney-client relationship is a uniquely impactful and profoundly personal one. Effective legal representation undoubtedly requires legal acumen, skillful advocacy, and positive results, all of which Amy consistently delivers. But its true measure to Amy and her clients is often found in the enduring partnerships they develop based on trust, honesty, empathy, and mutual respect. While serving clients certainly involves providing objective analysis, thorough preparation, and practical advice, it does not need to be a clinical or dispassionate endeavor.
Combining this approach with deep and diverse experience in a variety of legal settings, Amy represents clients in a broad range of litigation and transactional matters. She handles consumer and business law issues and disputes, assists clients with commercial and consumer collections, and provides counsel in landlord/tenant matters and eviction proceedings. Amy’s clients appreciate her evident and personal concern about the issues or challenges that led them to her office, as well as her commitment to making her representation as affordable as it is effective.
Originally from Nebraska, Amy graduated from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas in 1997. Amy then earned her law degree from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 2001. After law school, she worked as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Nebraska, served as a Deputy Legislative Assistant for U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel, and practiced at a prominent Washington, D.C. lobbying firm.
In 2005, Amy moved to Winchester, where she lives with her husband, Steve, and their two sons. She joined Harrison & Johnston in 2012 and appreciates all of the things that make living, working, and raising a family in the Shenandoah Valley so special. She is active in several professional, philanthropic, and community activities, including serving as treasurer of the Winchester-Frederick County Bar Association and on the United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley’s board of directors. This is in addition to countless hours spent volunteering at her sons’ school or cheering from the sidelines at their many sporting events.
When not serving her clients or her community, Amy enjoys traveling, skiing, heading to the beach, reading, and perfecting her chocolate chip cookie recipe.
