After graduating with honors from Saint Louis University School of Law, Amanda spent a majority of her legal career defending employers, and she understands the mindset and strategies companies use to successfully dispose of claims quickly and completely. Now she is committed to protecting and fighting for the rights of individuals, in the workplace, in their communities or in the place they call home. Ms. Biondolino’s passion for assisting those whose civil rights have been violated, along with her legal insight and tenacious demeanor, make her a powerful advocate for anyone experiencing unjust treatment or illegal prejudice.
Amanda is admitted to practice law in the states of Florida, Missouri and Illinois, and in addition to her time spent in private practice, she served as the Human Rights Attorney for the Missouri Commission on Human Rights, an agency which enforces Missouri’s anti-discrimination law, known as the Missouri Human Rights Act. In addition to state-wise litigation, Ms. Biondolino devoted significant time and dedication to promoting the Commission’s mission, which is to “develop, recommend, and implement ways to prevent and eliminate discrimination and to provide fair and timely resolutions of discrimination claims through enforcement of the Missouri Human Rights Act.” To this end Amanda obtained additional federal support for the Commission through grant and partnership funding, developed substantive curriculum on topics pertaining to discrimination and trained more than 1,000 people across Missouri on a variety of human rights topics, including discrimination and harassment, cultural diversity, and the administrative complaint process. Ms. Biondolino recently “wrote the book” on fair housing law for the Missouri Bar Deskbook – Real Estate Law (soon to be released) – and is frequently asked to speak and write on employment and discrimination topics.
