Amy Brosnahan is a Raleigh, North Carolina native. She attended Campbell University for her undergraduate education where she received her Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice and political science in 2019. She graduated top of her class and received a summa cum laude distinction. During her time at Campbell, Amy interned with a law firm in Raleigh, North Carolina doing property and landlord tenant law. Being a lawyer was always her dream so after receiving her undergraduate degree, she attended Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, North Carolina as a Smith/Shaver Scholar.
Amy went to law school with a goal of practicing family law due to her time as a volunteer with the Wake County Guardian ad Litem program. During law school, Amy’s passion for family law deepened during an internship with a family law firm in Winston-Salem. Amy also had the opportunity during law school to obtain government security clearance to be an Honors Intern with the Federal Bureau of Investigation where she worked with the violent crime unit in their Charlotte Field Office.
Amy was the program director for Girl Scout Mock Trial while at Wake Forest. She was also a research assistant that partnered with the National Advocates For Pregnant Women (now Pregnancy Justice) in New York City. [Pregnancy Justice defends the civil and human rights of pregnant people, especially those who are most at risk of state control and criminalization.]
In 2022, Amy was named Student Scholar by the Wake County Bar Association. She received her J.D. from Wake Forest in May 2023 and passed the bar exam in July 2023. Her work at Wake Family Law Group focuses on all aspects of North Carolina family law, including negotiations and litigation.
