Amy S. Ooi
Amy S. Ooi’s diverse experiences uniquely inspire her approach to litigation. She grew up in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, and is fluent in 5 languages (Bahasa Malaysia, Cantonese, Mandarin, Fujian, and English). She then went on to study music and law in Arkansas, Arizona, and Texas. Amy embraces, understands, and utilizes both Asian and Western cultures and perspectives in tackling the intricate challenges of litigation to advance the interests of the firm’s clients before judges and juries.
A classically-trained pianist with a Masters’ degree in music theory and ethnomusicology, Amy is logical and observant, two attributes that fueled her former career as a music theorist. Those same strengths are now equally pivotal in her success as a lawyer, where she enjoys both the analytical and creative aspects of developing litigation strategies and solutions for clients in the firm’s Commercial Litigation, Financial Services Litigation, Insurance Defense, and Nonsubscriber Litigation practices.
Outside of work, Amy enjoys music, cooking, skiing, golf, and woodworking.
