“I am blessed to have been recognized and nominated by my peers for this award. It is proof that you can passionately advocate for your client while earning the respect of others in your field. That is the commitment of every attorney practicing at Weiss-Kunz & Oliver, LLC,” Oliver commented.

For the past two decades, the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin selects 40 of the most talented young attorneys in Illinois. This year, the competition was fierce, with more than 1,500 nominations. To be recognized takes not only success in the courtroom but an outstanding work ethic and a passion for helping people in the community.

Amanda’s guiding principle for her work is to do what is right for the client and their family, not just what is easy. This is apparent in her daily practice, as she navigates often volatile family law matters with knowledge and grace. Her confidence translates to her clients, allowing them a sense of ease during what is an otherwise unnerving time in their lives. Amanda has achieved many notable outcomes for her clients, both through litigation and settlement. Most recently, she successfully argued to maintain confidentiality in court ordered therapy sessions for her client and her client’s minor children pursuant to 750 ILCS 5/607.

Amanda is on the advisory board for the National Basketball Association (NBA) Retired Players’ Association - Chicago Chapter and volunteers her time coaching children’s basketball and teaching preschool Sunday School at her local church.

Amanda is a member of the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois Bar Association and the DuPage County Bar Association and was admitted to the State Bar of Illinois and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in 2007. Amanda received her bachelor’s degree from Millikin University and earned her Juris Doctorate degree from the UIC John Marshall Law School in Chicago.

Recognized for her achievements in the field of law, Amanda received the 10 Best Client Satisfaction Award from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys in 2016 and 2019. In addition, she was named to the National Advocates Top 40 Under 40 list; Chicago Magazine’s Top Women Attorneys in 2013; and Super Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” in 2012, 2013, and 2017.
