Amy Parker Zupancic moved to Georgia as a child, eventually graduating from Dunwoody High School. Attending Florida State University on a full-ride academic scholarship, Amy graduated with a B.S. in Accounting cum laude (1985), and she went on to earn a full-ride academic scholarship from Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law, graduating in the top 5% of her class, cum laude (1988). Amy practiced banking and finance law with Dentons (formerly Long, Aldridge & Norman) in Atlanta for several years before turning her focus full-time to her family, including at that time three (3) children under the age of four (4). Seeking to balance career and family, Amy earned a Master’s in Information Science from Florida State University summa cum laude (2008) and worked as a school library media specialist at The Galloway School, teaching research and technology skills to students, while raising her children and working in leadership positions as a community volunteer.
When her youngest child matriculated to Georgia Tech, Amy returned to the practice of law, working with senior partners at a large, multi-state law firm handling catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. Using her research skills to great effect in those cases, Amy moved to The Cheeley Law Group in 2021 to have the opportunity to put her skills to work with founding member Bob Cheeley on his cases involving catastrophic injury, wrongful death, civil rights, and business litigation.
A member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, Georgia Association of Women Lawyers, and Association of College and Research Libraries, Amy and her husband John live in Dunwoody and enjoy
spending time with their six (6) young adult children, and several “rescued” dogs. Amy remains an active community volunteer with Atlanta’s venerable Fox Theatre, Orphan Annie Pet Rescue, and other community groups.
