Taylor English is nimble. The Firm’s unique business model gives me the flexibility to provide my clients with top notch service in an efficient, cost-effective manner.

Amanda Wilson Speier is a partner in Taylor English’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department who focuses her practice on the health care industry, particularly medical malpractice defense. She represents all types of health care providers, including nurses, physicians, hospitals, home health companies and insurers. Her representation of these clients also includes general liability, contract and billing disputes.

Ms. Speier also handles professional liability defense claims in the insurance and financial services arena. In her insurance defense practice, Ms. Speier handles complex insurance issues, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), life and disability benefits, and broker, producer and agent disputes. She is adept at dealing with various tort claims asserted against professionals in the medical, insurance and financial services industries, whether the forum is litigation, mediation or arbitration.

Ms. Speier has experience handling all aspects of civil litigation. From the moment a claim is anticipated, Ms. Speier advises clients on how to possibly avoid litigation entirely to minimize the risks and inconvenience of an impending suit. She helps her clients evaluate defenses and assesses the factual and legal merits of the claimant’s allegations. She has extensive experience drafting pleadings and motions, managing written discovery and large document productions, taking and defending the depositions of parties, experts and other witnesses, and arguing motions of all kinds before the court. Ms. Speier has successfully resolved many cases on dispositive motion, but is experienced with preparing for trial and taking a case to jury verdict when necessary. At the appellate level, Ms. Speier continues to advocate for her clients’ legal positions, often defending the trial court’s decision to dismiss or grant summary judgment in her client’s favor.
