Amanda M. Fielder Named to Michigan Lawyers Weekly 2020 Women in the Law

Amanda M. Fielder, a partner with the law firm Warner Norcross + Judd LLP, has been recognized as one of Michigan Lawyers Weekly 2020 “Women in the Law.”

Fielder will be honored on Thursday, Oct. 8 in a virtual event recognizing outstanding Michigan women attorneys and their contributions. Nominations focused on achievements in four areas:

    Fielder’s nomination letter read, in part: “Known for her no-nonsense approach and fierce advocacy, Amanda has established a reputation for defending employer interests in employment-related issues. Passionate about her clients’ business needs and goals, Amanda prides herself on being a critical resource, regularly counseling employers on current and relevant employee relations issues.”

    Fielder serves as a leader on Warner’s COVID Response Team, creating content and participating in many COVID-focused webinars and contributing to numerous publications to help keep businesses and nonprofits updated on COVID best practices and executive orders.

    She also chaired Warner’s Building Committee, which managed all aspects of the firm’s design and buildout of its new 80,000 square-foot office building in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. In November 2019, Warner moved into the new building, which features workspaces that bring the outdoors in, enhanced technology and security and more collaborative spaces focused on enhancing communication and improving workflow.

    She has been named to the Rising Star list by Michigan Super Lawyers every year since 2010 and was recognized by the Grand Rapids Business Journal’s 40 Under Forty list in 2018. She was named an Up and Coming Lawyer by Michigan Lawyers Weekly in 2015.

    Fielder currently serves as board chair of Solutions to End Exploitation and is a board member for Children’s Advocacy Center. She is also on the advisory council for Inner City Christian Federation and previously served as the co-chair of the construction committee of Kids’ Food Basket. Fielder is a graduate of Leadership West Michigan and Leadership Grand Rapids.

    She earned her bachelor's degree summa cum laude from Western Michigan University and her law degree magna cum laude from Michigan State University College of Law.
