Amy McCarthy

Amy McCarthy, nee Richardson, was born in Topeka, Kansas, the seventh oldest of fifteen children. In 1997, she was one of the very last clerks the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad hired. After the company started automating and downsizing, she saw the writing on the wall that she would soon be out of a career if she stayed, so she transferred to the Transportation Department in Southern California and became a trainman. Once in California, Amy also became involved with her Union and did the Secretary Treasurer work.

On September 29, 2001, while working for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, she was injured when a switch hung up, causing her to suffer a career ending neck injury. Anthony Petru represented her at trial and they became, and remain friends. After an extensive recovery period, she was ready to re-join the workforce and was available if the law firm needed anyone in her area. The next day, July 9, 2009, Anthony asked her to come to work for Hildebrand, McLeod and Nelson. She enjoys helping others, especially railroad workers, any way she can and paying it forward.

Amy and her husband Sean married in July of 2004. They have 3 children. When she is not working on cases, she can be found spending time with her children and grandchildren, fishing, camping, reading and rooting for her K.C. Chiefs and K.C. Royals.
