Amanda M. O'Halloran, Of Counsel
  • A Seattle native, Amanda O’Halloran joined the firm in 1995, after graduating from Seattle University School of Law. She focuses her practice primarily on providing employment-law advice for a diverse group of businesses that ranges from car dealerships and retail establishments to healthcare providers, financial services companies, and non-profits. She is frequently called upon to provide counsel about managing difficult employment terminations, investigating discrimination and other employment claims, and developing and implementing anti-harassment policies and training.

    Amanda’s busy and active family includes a husband, four children, and a golden retriever named Teddy. An avid runner, she traveled to New York City in 2015 to compete in her third marathon. She currently serves on the Board of Circle of Friends in Action, a local non-profit that supports a small school in Uganda but she is generally passionate about all causes that support children.
