Amy Sobeck

Amy, at Tucker Griffin Barnes since 2007, quickly turned into a Jack-Of-All-Trades by assisting with criminal trials, as well as front desk and office management. She has acted as paralegal for associates and partners in civil, criminal, personal injury, real estate, and business law.  Currently she manages the registered agent practice, and assists Mr. Tucker with real estate contracts and complicated deeds.  She loves examining old plats and property descriptions to help people solve their real estate issues.

Sound nerdy?  She is, but don’t tease her too much because she also practices martial arts, kung fu, including sparring (since 2006).  Being fluent in German and with a license to teach, her background is in foreign languages and education.  In desperate situations she can also communicate in Spanish and French.  She spends any extra time cooking whole foods and vegetables to feed to her adorable baby and husband.
