Amanda N. McShane

Associate Attorney

Amanda is an Associate Attorney at Brown Immigration Law working with a range of corporate clients across the nation, specializing in the technological, financial, and healthcare sectors.  Amanda is involved with a variety of employment-based immigration processes, from H-1B, TN, and O-1 Non-immigrant visa applications to applications for Permanent Residence and Naturalization. 

Amanda ignited her passion for immigration law early on in law school while attending the University of St. Thomas. As a student, Amanda worked as a Certified Student Attorney through the Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services, representing detained immigrants in all available forms of humanitarian relief, including bond hearings and asylum hearings. Amanda continued this work as an advanced student attorney, providing mentorship and guidance to fellow law student attorneys. Amanda also volunteered with organizations like the Advocates for Human Rights, Volunteer Lawyers Network, and the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota. Prior to joining Brown Immigration Law, Amanda was an Associate Attorney at an immigration law firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota representing clients through all family-based and humanitarian immigration processes, including asylum, cancellation of removal, U Visas, SIJS, family-based adjustment of status, representation in Immigration Court, and various other avenues of relief from removal. This work also required representation in the state’s Criminal and Family courts. Amanda was also involved with appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals, and state courts to pursue every potential option. Amanda joined Brown to continue to provide a client-centered approach to immigration legal solutions and works with the team to provide first-class service to our variety of corporate clients. Amanda also speaks Spanish. 

In her free time, Amanda enjoys spending time with her dog, Scout, listening to true crime podcasts, and taking spin classes on her home bike, and in a group setting whenever possible.
