Women of Influence - Amy Witherite
Amy Witherite is the powerhouse lawyer changing the game in personal injury law across the nation. Founder of Witherite Law Group, she started as a medical malpractice attorney. As the laws and regulations around medical malpractice law started to shift, Witherite decided that she should pivot her practice and carve out a niche—truck and car wreck law. Now leading one of the largest female-owned personal injury law firms in the country, Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck, she is blazing a trail and creating innovation in the truck wreck industry.
In addition to her legal expertise, numerous awards, and top-level education as a magna cum laude graduate of Texas Tech School of Law, Witherite uses her influence to make a life-changing impact in the communities she serves. From supporting shelters and food pantries, to providing local students with scholarships, to helping families through the holidays, Witherite supports the Dallas-Fort Worth community in many ways, giving back more than a million dollars annually.
Witherite gives with the intention to fill the gaps that are often overlooked in communities. A true example of how successful people can and should give back to their communities, her ultimate hope is that WLG’s work inspires other corporate leaders to support their communities in meaningful ways.
