Attorney Spotlight: Amy Byrne

In what area of law do you practice and why did you choose this?

I primarily practice real estate law. I have been all things real estate since relocating to the United States from England. I invest in and advise myself of upcoming real estate trends and it made sense to share my expertise with other real estate professionals by becoming a real estate lawyer.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Definitely a veterinarian. I loved all animals and would probably overwhelm anyone with how much I used to talk about dogs.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a lawyer?

Most likely investing in real estate or other businesses that have a connection to real estate.

What is an item on your bucket list?

Traveling to see the clear blue waters in the Caribbean and swimming with the pigs in Exuma, Bahamas.

What is your favorite Twin Cities restaurant?

Texas Roadhouse. There’s something addicting about their bread rolls.

What might people be surprised to know about you?

Growing up I played five instruments, including percussion for the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Liverpool is known for its music scene (think the Beatles) and I had a great time growing up there practicing a variety of instruments.

What is your strongest asset?

Perseverance and attention to detail. When clients present a legal issue, my strongest asset is persevering until I obtain a clear answer with reference to legal authority to promptly and carefully advise clients on legal issues.
