Amanda SmithAttorney Amanda Smith

Passionate About Family Law

Growing up just outside the nation’s capital was fast-paced and often quite stressful for Amanda Smith. Transitioning to rural South Carolina to attend Clemson University was initially short of a culture shock, but she quickly fell in love with the southern way of life. After earning her B.A. at Clemson with a minor in legal studies, she packed her bags and headed to Knoxville, Tennessee to pursue her law degree.

While at Clemson, she was fortunate enough to be a part of the first mentorship program specifically geared toward pre-law students. Being able to shadow a family law attorney twice a week during her junior and senior years was not only eye-opening but also allowed her to realize she had an interest in family law. Following undergrad, she interned for South Carolina Legal Services in Greenville, South Carolina, where she was able to work with a variety of attorneys in various legal fields.

During law school, Attorney Smith did everything she could to pursue a career in family law. She interned here at Rech Law, P.C. for two years, in which time she fully developed her passion for family law and the desire to help those in need. In addition to interning during law school, she also served on three executive boards and participated in a federal criminal trial practice class, which gave her hands-on experience writing pleadings and arguing in front of federal judges.

In Attorney Smith’s free time, you can find her traveling, whether it be down the street or out of the country. She also loves being outdoors, playing with dogs, and cheering on her Clemson Tigers!

Practice Philosophy

Being a child of divorce, she knows how hard this process is for every party involved. As such, her driving motivation is to make what is often the worst and most tumultuous time in a person’s life as easy to comprehend as possible. She believes that each case and each client deserve a hands-on, one-on-one approach to whatever they may be going through. It is her goal to help clients not only understand every option they have but also to remain compassionate and understanding throughout the entire process.
