Amy Maddux is an appellate attorney at Shipley Snell Montgomery, LLP. She received a B.S in economics from Texas A&M University and a law degree from Baylor University School of Law. She was a partner at Baker Botts LLP before joining Shipley Snell Montgomery, and she also clerked on the Texas Supreme Court. Her interest in public education originally stemmed from her own four children attending public schools, but expanded as she learned more about issues facing public education generally. In 2018, she co-founded an education advocacy group aimed at informing and educating parents and community members about issues within Houston ISD, as well as supporting local schools.
