About The Mayer Group

Amy Derby

Office Manager

Don’t call her Ma’am, because she works for a living. Managing the office with the precision and authority of a Sergeant Major, Ms. Derby takes care of the things that make the civilized practice of law possible.

Focusing on client intake, legal writing and research, and office management, she brings a diverse background of writing and large-firm practice to our military-oriented office. Before joining The Mayer Group, she worked as a paralegal at DLA Piper’s Chicago office in the bankruptcy and litigation practice groups, and as a freelance writer for various law firms. Ms. Derby’s work has been published by USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and LIVESTRONG.com. She obtained her BA in Journalism and Mass Communications from Ashford University with a minor in Criminal Justice, and a paralegal certificate from Chicago State University.
