Amelia Sedano McDonald

Amelia Sedano McDonald is Of Counsel at the Los Angeles office of Murchison & Cumming, focusing her practice on transportation, utility, land use and permitting, and cannabis matters. She has more than 20 years of experience in civil litigation and has also spent the last 10 years cultivating an urban farm in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Amelia's clients appreciate her unique perspective as a small business owner who understands the challenges businesses face when navigating the legal landscape.

Coming from a bi-racial, bi-cultural, and progressive family interested in the arts and politics, Amelia chose to practice law to make small acts of progress and make a difference in our legal system. Her strengths are utilizing self-awareness and experience to evaluate claims better, navigating relationships with opposing Counsel, and effectively communicating with carriers and clients. She prides herself in evaluating her cases effectively with integrity, and her clients know she will always give them an honest and experienced evaluation of their cases.

Amelia graduated from the University of Arizona School of law after receiving her bachelor's degree in Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley. While in law school, she clerked for Judge B. Velasco, Arizona Superior Court, and was awarded the Ares Fellowship for teaching first-year law students research and writing.

Amelia volunteers for Girl Scouts of America and Boy Scouts of America and is now a teacher of various badges and programs. When away from the office, she enjoys going to concerts with her teenage daughter and teaching kids and adults about sustainable food, living, and crafting. Amelia loves hugging her goats and makes botanical jewelry from her farm.
