About the Owner

Amanda Edwin, licenced paralegal in the Region of Waterloo.

Amanda J Edwin, Owner & Litigation Paralegal

Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Amanda immigrated to Canada with her family in 2008. She was an Educator in T & T for over 21 years and ended her tenure as a Head of Department. 


Starting over in a new country posed its challenges, so Amanda made the decision to pursue a second career. She returned to school and successfully obtained her Paralegal Diploma with Honours, thereafter securing her Paralegal licence through the newly named Law Society of Ontario in 2012.


Over the years, Amanda has worked as a Litigation Paralegal and gained a significant amount of administrative and courtroom experience in Small Claims, Provincial Offences and Landlord and Tenant matters, experience she now brings to Amicus Paralegal Services. A vast amount of that experience pertained to matters relating to debt recovery, highway traffic tickets, evictions and  breach of contract.


Amanda considers herself a social advocate, so she joined the Canadian Caribbean Association of Waterloo Region (CCAWR) as a Board Member in 2016. She serves on the Board of Directors as the Secretary and is also a member of the organization's Scholarship Committee.


Amanda currently lives in Kitchener with her family. She maintains a deep interest in education and when she has some down time, Amanda does a bit writing on topics that interest her. You can follow her on posts on Facebook , LinkedIN and Instagram.
