Associate

overview

Amy Melia focuses her practice on insurance defense litigation involving First-Party homeowners’ insurance claims, property damage, bodily injury, and contractual disputes throughout Florida. 

Amy obtained her Juris Doctor from Florida Coastal School of Law in 2009 with Pro Bono Honors and was the recipient of the Governor’s Merit Scholarship and Dean’s Scholarship. She also attended the Faculté de Droit (Law School Program) at the Université D’Auvergne in Clermont-Ferrand, France, focusing on International and UN Law in 2008. While in law school, Amy worked at the Immigrant Rights Clinic, representing indigent clients in USCIS proceedings and obtaining legal status through various legal avenues. 

After graduating in 2009, Amy began working with Dade County Legal Aid and the Pro Bono Project, where she represented clients dealing with family law and domestic violence issues, as well as matching indigent clients with attorneys willing to handle cases on a pro bono basis. From there, Amy was named the Director of the Lawyer Referral Service for Miami-Dade County where she successfully launched, marketed, and coordinated the Dade County Bar Referral Service, administering the enrollment and oversight of attorneys, the intake of clients and analysis of their potential legal remedies, as well as the regulation and operation of the service in accordance with Florida Bar requirements. 

Prior to joining Kubicki Draper, Amy practiced for nearly four years in the insurance defense field at a private defense firm, handling all aspects of litigation from pre-suit claim handling through jury trial.

Amy was born and raised in Hingham, MA with her six sisters and attended the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, where she received a B.A. in Political Science in 2006 and earned “Highly Distinguished” Status for Academic Achievement.
