About Amanda

Amanda shares the values of our community: hard work, individuality and dedication.

A life-long Southern Oregonian, Amanda’s commitment to practicing law in Josephine County began while still in law school. In 2005 she began working at Hughes, Rote, et al as a law clerk and commuted to Eugene to finish her degree. After passing the bar in 2006 she joined the firm as an associate attorney, and in 2010 became a partner in the firm. She joined Cauble, Selvig, & Whittington, in 2018 as of counsel. Her entire career she has advocated for individuals, families and businesses by zealously representing them in their legal matters. Her commitment to providing honest and reasoned legal advice for thirteen years has earned her the respect of her clients and colleagues.

Amanda has always distinguished herself. She was awarded a Ford Family Foundation Scholarship and Presidential Student Scholarship and put herself through college and law school at the University of Oregon. In three years she graduated from the UO Honors College magna cum laude with departmental honors. In law school she was an editor for the Oregon Law Review. As an attorney she has been recognized by Zonta with the Rose Day Award for her work assisting domestic violence victims.

In addition to having owned a small business here, volunteered here, and worked here for over ten years, Amanda also calls Josephine County home. Raising her children in the same community she serves lends perspective and accountability to her service on the bench.


"Since 2006, I’ve been advocating for individuals, families, and businesses in our community. I believe in fairness and dignity for everyone. I’m asking for your vote so I can bring those values to the bench every day.

I would be honored to serve the people of Josephine County."
