Amelia Green / Associate

Since joining NSB, Amelia has consistently achieved noteworthy results for her clients. Amelia represented NSB client Anthony Wright, who won a $9.85 million settlement from the City of Philadelphia in 2018 to compensate him for 25 years he spent wrongfully imprisoned as a result of police misconduct by Philadelphia homicide detectives. Amelia’s work on the case from start to finish—which included work on Mr. Wright’s successful opposition to defendants’ motion to dismiss, the taking of several officer depositions, and the briefing of numerous motions throughout discovery—helped Mr. Wright resolve the case with a record-breaking settlement in Philadelphia before the case reached the summary judgment stage. Amelia was also a critical part of the case team representing NSB client Andre Hatchett. Mr. Hatchett won a $12.25 million settlement in a false identification suit against the City of New York in the Fall of 2017.

While at Stanford Law School, Amelia worked with Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto and the Community Law Clinic to represent low-wage workers in wage and hour proceedings and indigent tenants in housing court. She gained further experience at Legal Aid at Work, where she provided direct services and worked on class action litigation designed to combat pregnancy discrimination in the workplace and protect work and family rights. And as a member of Stanford’s Three Strikes & Justice Advocacy Project, Amelia provided representation to inmates challenging their sentences in post-conviction litigation and advocated for criminal sentencing reform.
