Legal Elite 2023: Environmental

ENVIRONMENTAL

AMY RICKERS
Johnston Allison & Hord, Charlotte

Hometown: Lincoln, Nebraska

Undergraduate: Texas Christian University

Law: University of Nebraska College of Law

Practiced law: 23 years

Family: Husband, Jon; Three sons, Jacob, Caleb and Eli

High school group: I was more of a nomad, floating between my eclectic friend groups.

One meal to eat forever: Eggplant Parmesan. I can almost convince myself it is healthy.

Bucket list item: I have always wanted to travel to Australia for an extended visit.

Biggest risk taken: Moving our family overseas while our children were young was risky. Living in a foreign country with three children under the age of 11 and without speaking the native language was difficult. I learned we are resilient. It also provided an amazing opportunity to see other parts of the world in a unique way, which has impacted our children greatly and will serve them well as they grow older.

Most used emoji: The classic, universally understood, thumbs up and thumbs down emojis are my go-tos. They are the easiest and fastest way to respond to the many texts from our children. It doesn’t leave them wondering if I really meant to choose that emoji or if I even really understand what it means.

Favorite winter activity: Snow skiing, preferably on fresh powder.

Definition of success: I define my own success, which is a work in progress, as finding a balance between a fulfilling career where I am able to do my best for the client and attend to each matter thoroughly and maintain a strong, connected family life. While we may all be running in different directions, we are happiest when we are all sitting around together.
