AMANDA "Mandy" (Sundarsingh) DOLCE, ESQ., began her legal career helping indigent families navigate the legal system at the Pro Se Family Law Clinic at the University of Florida's Levin College of Law, where she received highest honors amongst her colleagues for her preparatory work. During her law school career (GO GATORS!), she also served as a member of the Journal of Law and Public Policy and the Asian Pacific Law Student Association. Mandy also holds certificates in Entrepreneurship from Harvard Business School (online, 2021) and Women in Leadership from Cornell University (2021).
Post-graduation, Mandy served as an Attorney ad Litem at the Foster Children's Project, representing foster children. Mandy’s knowledge of Florida's child welfare system was further enhanced by her work through the Department of Children and Families, Guardian Ad Litem Program, and the Juvenile Advocacy Project (representing children in the juvenile justice system). She eventually moved into private practice as an associate lawyer for one of the Top 100 plaintiff's lawyers in the United States, practicing in the areas of medical malpractice, products liability, and children’s federal constitutional rights cases.
Mandy has previously been selected by The National Trial Lawyers as one of the Top 40 Under 40 civil plaintiff trial lawyers in Florida. She has also written and published several scholarly journal articles involving children and the law and has been recognized for her contribution to The Pursuit of Truth, an award-winning documentary about abuse survivors and the legal system.
In 2019, Mandy co-founded Awenasa Ranch, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Florida, providing equine therapy scholarships to teen girls who are the survivors of childhood trauma. She currently serves as the organization’s president.
