Amanda Jouett has spent the majority of her career up to this point working in the criminal justice arena, including misdemeanor traffic offenses, D.W.I's, drug possession, domestic violence, probation violations, and sexual assault cases. In addition to spending time in the courtroom, Amanda also has experience in handling appeals. As a member of the Moot Court team and as a prosecutor, Amanda learned how to write and respond to appellate briefs. Her experience has given her an understanding of what the appellate judges are looking for and how to present your case in the most favorable light to ensure that all of your rights are being defended. In recent years, her focus has been on handling traffic citations and lower-level misdemeanor offenses, ensuring that a small mistake or momentary lapse in judgment does not lead to life changing consequences. She represents her clients as if they were her own family and is consistently complimented by clients for providing information in a clear, caring way, so they can make the best decision for their lives and the lives of their family.
Amanda is a mom to three children, whom she has homeschooled for 11 years. She has also served as an instructor in local co-ops in speech, debate and writing. She and her husband have been active in Young Life, a ministry to high school and college students; the college ministry at their church; and now re|engage, a marriage enrichment ministry. Amanda sees law as her calling and loves meeting with people in their time of need and guiding them on the right path.
She and Jay first met while working at the Brazos County District Attorney’s office, and after both leaving for the world of criminal defense, have practiced together on and off since that time: in an official capacity with Gray, Granberry & Jones; for several years on an “as needed” basis as they both had their own practices; and now officially joining their own areas of expertise to provide their clients with the best legal representation available.
