Amanda Keller has spent most of her life as a Washington resident and has strong ties to the great Vancouver-Portland Metro area. Ms. Keller graduated from Washington State University Vancouver with a double major in Political Science and Sociology. Throughout her undergraduate studies, Amanda was very active in student government and on campus politics. Amanda earned a Juris Doctorate with Honors from Gonzaga University School of Law. Amanda worked tirelessly to help the community in which she lived. She volunteered at Blessings Under the Bridge, an organization which helped feed Spokane's homeless population, worked as a Chair Member for Mission: Possible, an international volunteer service, and worked at Gonzaga's Legal Clinic providing free legal services to clients who could not afford an attorney. During law school, Amanda worked as a Paralegal for a Personal Injury law firm and volunteered with another sole practitioner working on the homeless population's constitutional rights, a case of First Impression in Washington State. Amanda traveled abroad during her law school studies and lived in Italy for a summer where she studied International Criminal Law and International Human Rights. After graduating law school, Amanda became licensed in both Washington and Oregon. Amanda then opened her own private practice handling Estate Planning, Probate, Personal Injury, and Criminal Law matters, with a strong concentration on Criminal Law and Personal Injury matters. Amanda also volunteered at Clark County Volunteer Lawyer Program, providing free legal advice and assistance, again, to those who could not afford an attorney. Amanda worked at the Clark County Prosecutor's Office and the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office where she gained extensive trial experience as a prosecutor. Amanda then became an Associate Attorney at Walstead Mertsching practicing solely Criminal Law and gained more trial experience as a defense attorney. After her time at Walstead, Amanda made the bold move to Townsend Law where she was now more able to provide her clients more individualized attention to their cases. Amanda currently practices Criminal Law, Estate Planning, and Probate. On Amanda's free time, she enjoys playing recreational soccer, snowboarding, hiking with her dog and family, playing board games, and spending time with her family and friends.
