skip to main content Profiles Amie Vague for ‘How I Made Partner’ Series

March 25, 2024 featured Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC partner Amie A. Vague in its widely read Q&A series “How I Made Partner.”

The profile, “How I Made Partner: ‘Prioritize Your Cases and Your Clients,’ Says Amie Vague of Lightfoot, Franklin & White” (subscription required), details Vague’s career history and pathway to becoming a partner at the firm. Throughout the profile, she provides advice for associates, recounts how she tackled personal challenges and details how Lightfoot’s commitment to nurturing young talent played a pivotal role on her way to partnership.  

“Lightfoot Franklin stood out for its genuine investment in young lawyers,” writes Vague. “Here, I wasn’t going to be just another faceless associate; Lightfoot Franklin promised something more — a mutual investment where I could build a long-term career, a place that valued my contributions and was willing to invest in my growth as much as I was ready to invest in theirs.”

Vague joined Lightfoot’s Birmingham office as an associate in 2015. She has since developed a diverse legal practice that includes work on trial and appellate matters involving product liability, medical malpractice, professional liability, commercial litigation, employment law, white-collar criminal defense and corporate investigations. Her notable cases include serving as part of an all-woman trial team that secured a judgment as a matter of law for an Alabama cardiologist in a wrongful death action, resulting in the dismissal of the case. 

Vague is a member of the firm’s recruiting and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committees, and is also co-chair of the annual Lightfoot Academy for promising college students considering legal careers. She holds a J.D. (cum laude) from Pepperdine University School of Law and a B.A. (summa cum laude) from Lipscomb University.
