Amy C. Smith recently joined Moster Craft PC, where she will focus primarily on family law with an emphasis on child welfare.
Ms. Smith holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Texas Woman’s University, where she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta International Sorority, serving as president during her last year.
Ms. Smith attended St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio, where she was a member of the Hispanic Bar Association and a student attorney for Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, helping survivors of domestic violence obtain emergency protective orders. She also had the distinct honor of participating in the St. Mary’s Institute on World Legal Problems in Innsbruck, Austria, while the late Honorable Justice Antonin Scalia served as Distinguished Jurist.
Ms. Smith was most recently employed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as a regional attorney in Wichita County and the surrounding areas. She zealously represented the Department in substantial litigation with a heavy caseload.
Before working at DFPS, Ms. Smith was the Managing Attorney and Director of the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Program at Legal Aid Society of Lubbock. She passionately represented survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as assisted the Program Director with grant writing and reporting.
Ms. Smith’s desire to help those in need and speak for those without a voice is what inspired her to obtain her law degree. She is passionate about justice, which serves as a guidepost for her career.
At home, Ms. Smith and her partner are busy with two very bright and active toddler girls that have (happily) forced her to take a break from some of her favorite hobbies like traveling and reading suspense/thriller novels.
