Some say Amy is stubborn. Some would be right! Amy has taken pride in working hard to achieve all that she has in life and it is through her tenacity and stubborn sense of right and wrong that led her to a career in the law. From fighting against insurance companies to making legal arguments in front of a judge, Amy derives great satisfaction from her work as a member of the Ruth Law Team. After receiving her Bachelors of Arts degree in Public Health Policy and Psychology, she continued her education by receiving her Master of Public Administration degree from Michigan State University. She then escaped the cold winters of Michigan, by moving to St. Petersburg, Florida to attend Stetson University College of Law.
“Amy is on fire! Her knowledge was impressive, her fight was exciting. Finally someone fighting for the good guys! I don’t care if I was in an accident in Siberia, I’d call Amy.” Alfred H. 3/30/21
Amy decided to remain in Florida to begin her practice of law and to continue to enjoy the palm trees and beautifully sunny days of Florida. Since her first year in law school, she has worked for The Ruth Law Team and is now a senior associate of the firm, having been with the firm now for almost twenty years. Amy has also come full circle in terms of cold winters by also being admitted to practice law in Minnesota. She finds the balance between the wonderful climate of Florida and the wonderful people of Minnesota to be the best of both worlds.
When not hard at work at the office, Amy enjoys a number of activities that keep her busy. She loves traveling with her husband and son and spends her personal time with her four rescue pups, whom all come from a history of abuse and neglect and require special medical care and rehabilitation before thriving in the Catledge household. As an Advocacy Trainer, as well as an Adjunct Professor for Stetson University College of Law, Amy also enjoys giving back to the legal community by training, coaching, and teaching law students. Every fall and every spring, Amy travels with student teams to mediation competitions and she also participates in the selection of students to serve on the Alternative Dispute Resolution Board at Stetson, participating in a number of mediation, negotiation, and arbitration competitions.
Most recently, Amy has been awarded with the America’s Best Advocates Award for Top Female Personal Injury Attorney.
