Amanda Reichek

Labor and employment cases aren’t “quick hits.”  If you decide to pursue litigation against your employer, you will be in for a fight.  The lawyer representing your employer will be well-versed in employment law, and will leave no stone unturned in attempting to defeat your claim.  Amanda knows the routine, and you can be assured that these attempts will be answered in kind.

Amanda has been Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2009.  She was named a Texas Super Lawyer in 2013, 2014 and 2015, as well as Rising Star in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Amanda graduated with honors from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2003.  She has devoted her legal career to practicing labor and employment law, having worked for some of the preeminent plaintiff-side labor and employment law firms in Texas before operating her own firm, The Reichek Firm, PLLC, from 2009 through 2015.
