Amanda Whitten

Partner at Bryant Whitten LLP

 Amanda interned in the Fresno office of Senator Dean Flores in the Spring of 2003. She started at CSU Fresno in the Fall of 2000 in the Smittcamp Family Honors College and graduated in Spring 2004, with a double major in Criminology and Political Science.   She then attended the University of California at Davis School of Law, graduating in 2007.

Amanda specializes in sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination. She is a native of the Central Valley, has a passion for Bulldog football at Fresno State, running marathons, and social justice.

Looking back, I would say that the internship was a pivotal point between my education and my career.  I not only learned important office skills and made real connections in the community, but I also worked on Senator Florez’ air quality legislation that still feels important today.  I also gained a unique perspective on how our government works, and sometimes doesn’t.  It has informed so much of how I work now in my career, and also my view of politics as a citizen.”

Amanda’s law practice extends from Bakersfield to Sacramento to Oakland. She has filed cases in both federal and state courts throughout the Central Valley, as well as had significant experience with jury trials in courts throughout the state.
