Meet MJSB Professionals
AMY BOYLE, Partner
Amy is a Founding Partner of MJSB Employment Justice. She brings a personalized approach to each of her cases and prides herself on giving her clients a candid assessment of their case. While Amy handles all types of employment matters, she has a particular focus on representing women who have experienced sex discrimination, sexual harassment and assault, and retaliation at work and whistleblower clients who have reported illegal workplace practices or companies engaged in deceitful conduct. Her extensive understanding of whistleblower laws and consumer fraud has resulted in considerable success on behalf of her whistleblower clients.
A problem-solver by nature, Amy’s attention to detail, strong organization, and work ethic allows her to handle the most complex employment matters. With a no-nonsense approach to settlement negotiations, she has negotiated numerous and substantial pre-litigation settlements on behalf of her clients. She is also a talented litigator with a winning trial record and is often invited to speak on discovery matters and trial strategy. Having handled multi-plaintiff complex cases and litigated against some of the biggest companies in Minnesota and the country, Amy’s clients feel confident knowing she is a fearless advocate.
Amy also represents clients who have found themselves in an untenable work situation, advising and negotiating severance agreements for executive-level employees often leaving long-term employment.
