Social Security Disability
Amy grew up in the town of Ashland, Kentucky and earned her undergraduate degree from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Toledo College of Law. She is licensed to practice law in state courts in Kentucky and Ohio, as well as the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Kentucky and the Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio.
Prior to becoming an associate with Hoglund Law in 2019, Amy worked in a wide variety of areas of the law. During law school, she interned for the public defender’s office. After graduating from law school and passing the Ohio and Kentucky bar exams, she worked in employment law with an emphasis on representing plaintiffs with discrimination, harassment, and FMLA allegations in state and federal courts. Later, she practiced Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcy, and then in state courts litigating and negotiating creditor/debtor disputes that frequently took her traveling throughout Ohio and Kentucky. She also practiced in the areas of real estate, personal injury, probate and estate planning. For a while, she even helped recruit other legal professionals for law firm and corporate careers. Most recently, she worked in human resources and marketing before joining Hoglund and began helping clients with Social Security disability claims and practicing out of the Cincinnati office.
Amy finds it rewarding helping those who are unable to work themselves, be it from physical or mental impairments. She says it is uniquely satisfying when she has helped clients acquire benefits that will make positive differences in their lives.
She currently resides in northern Kentucky. When not working Amy enjoys reading, listening to and watching true crime stories, traveling to and experiencing as many different places as time will allow, kayaking, and hiking, preferably in Kentucky’s beautiful Red River Gorge area.
