Ms. Amy M. Pokora, Esq. is a founding member of LEWIS and POKORA. Ms. Pokora received her law degree and MBA from the University of St. Thomas in her hometown of Minneapolis, MN.

The National Trial Lawyers recently identified Ms. Pokora as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers. She has successfully handled hundreds of litigated cases and is no stranger to the courtroom, including her firm’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals victory in 2019. Ms. Pokora has extensive litigation, arbitration and trial experience, has served part time on the bench as a Pro Tem Judge in Maricopa County Justice Courts, and has taught civil litigation skills to law students as a visiting law professor. Before opening her own law firm, she was an associate attorney at the largest insurance defense firm in Arizona, before “jumping the fence” into solely plaintiff’s work.

Her achievements in law coupled with her entertainment and television background have afforded her unique opportunities in the legal industry (you may have seen Amy on the TLC channel’s hit TV show “Say Yes to the Dress” or performing stand-up comedy around the country). Ms. Pokora provides professional legal commentary to news channels on hot legal topics, current events, as well as LEWIS and POKORA’s own high profile cases. Her clients’ cases have been featured on CBS 5 News and even Dateline NBC with Reporter Chris Hansen. Amy also recently had the honor to work in Los Angeles with attorney Chris Darden, famed prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson “trial of the century.”

Prior to attending law school, Ms. Pokora was the victim of a sports utility vehicle roll-over accident, as a result of someone else's negligence, in which she was introduced to the legal system as a plaintiff. After this event, she was determined to attend law school and represent injury victims to bring closure to others as her attorney had brought to her.

Ms. Pokora is licensed in Arizona and Minnesota, but serves clients and handles cases nationwide with the firm’s network of associations.
