Amanda Johnson grew up in a small town around 100 miles from Memphis, Tennessee. She still keeps in contact with many of her friends from that time of life. Several of them stayed in their hometown, and her boyfriend from kindergarten even tours the world as a professional opera singer. She attends his performances as often as possible.
Amanda attended college in both Missouri and Arkansas where she studied Studio Art and Political Science, then attended law school at Seattle University. After passing the Washington Bar Exam, she moved to Skagit County and opened her own firm. Amanda's very first courtroom experience after graduation was a case she inherited from another attorney where she had the opportunity to argue before the Washington State Supreme Court. That is one monster of an introduction to the practice of law, and the generally rather mundane court docket from that day was proudly displayed in her office for the next fifteen years.
In 2018 Amanda closed her practice in Washington, applied for Admission on Motion to the Supreme Court of Arizona, and moved to Phoenix. On December 24, 2018 she was admitted to the State Bar of Arizona. She enjoys taking her dog on trips around their new hometown and irritating her former colleagues with photos of sunny winter skies.
