Amanda Mateer, Esq.
Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney

Attorney Amanda Mateer hails from the prestigious University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, and she already accrued considerable experience in fighting criminal charges.

During law school she participated in the Civil Rights Restoration Clinic, which allowed her to practice as a lawyer in a limited capacity. As a student attorney, she represented convicted felons in an effort to set aside their convictions, restore their service rights, and reduce or waive their outstanding court fees. 

In preparation for a legal career in Las Vegas, Amanda spent a semester as a visiting law student at UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law. And during summers she clerked at the Clark County Public Defender's Office, which is the best training ground for future defense attorneys. There she became adept in legal research and wrote several court-filed motions including sentencing recommendations, bail reduction requests, suppression of evidence motions, and suppression of police interrogation motions. She even conducted preliminary hearings and a misdemeanor trial

Amanda also participated in Tuscon's Volunteer Lawyers Program, which allowed her to help clients with family law issues and documents related to divorce, property division, child custody, visitation, and paternity rights. She even earned an award for "Student Volunteer of the Month." 

Amanda holds a B.A. in English from the University of Arizona, where she graduated on merit scholarships with a perfect 4.0 GPA and summa cum laude. And in addition to being a budding legal prodigy, Amanda is an accomplished chessmaster as well! She wrote her college honors thesis on chess, served as marketing director for chesskid.com, and was an instructor for Arizona Chess for Schools. Now she uses state witnesses as mere pawns to checkmate the D.A.
