Attorney Amy Pietrowski overcame personal hardship, abuse and poverty to become a leading courtroom advocate for clients in Mississippi and Tennessee.
A native of Michigan, Pietrowski was only 2 years old when she was placed in foster care. She endured a turbulent childhood and in disobedience, rebelled by joining the Marine Corps. The trajectory of her life changed when she joined the U.S. Marine Corps at age 18.
Pietrowski was one of only 2,200 women serving in the Marine Corps during the first Persian Gulf War. She completed boot camp at Parris Island in Port Royal, South Carolina, followed by her Military Occupational Specialty training in communication at the 29 Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in San Bernardino County, California.
During her four years of active military service, Pietrowski was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, with deployments to Thailand, Korea and the Philippines. Her work included serving as a communication center supervisor at supply and logistics bases in the Pacific region. She received extensive training on firearms, close combat and weapons systems.
After serving as a United States Marine Corps soldier she entered the field of social work, and later returned to school to become a school teacher. After a few years of teaching, she was drawn to the legal profession in order to continue in public service, and to improve the ability of those struggling with legal problems who desire efficient and expeditious results from an attorney who will fight zealously for their rights.
