"A non-toothache is very pleasant" - Thich Nhat Hanh
Some people might say Amdie has bad timing - he joined the newly merged Dewey-Lebeouf as a first year associate in 2008, he had a second kid right before losing that gig, and he started at Whistler Partners a week before the world went into quarantine. But given his unbridled optimism we doubt that he would see it that way. In fact, Amdie’s ability to add a positive spin to any circumstance has landed him the coveted role of Sean’s de-facto therapist (much needed). A purveyor of exclusively good advice, we even like to think that had he taken the helm at Dewey, he could’ve kept the ship from sinking.
As a natural helper, Amdie’s career after Dewey shifted to public defense in Staten Island, and then on to Big Law recruiting at a couple of New York's top shops (lame). After connecting and guiding countless candidates and clients, Amdie took a short break to finish writing a book (c’mon, name one lawyer who doesn’t in their heart of hearts think they could write the next great American novel). When he was ready to rejoin the world of legal recruiting, Whistler Partners, as long time admirers of Amdie’s work, was ready to snatch him up.
In his own words, “it may seem like I’m a great recruiter, but really I’m just a Brooklyn dad, making money off Midtown to help two boys travel the world, play soccer and crush their music lessons. Won’t anyone please think of the Children!!! ”
