Amanda Vaught, Attorney

Amanda doesn’t do anything halfway.  She earned her Bachelor’s degree with honors in Chemistry from the Johns Hopkins University; and she holds a Master’s degree in Chemistry from Columbia University.  She went on to graduate cum laude from Boston University School of Law.  She is licensed to practice in New York and Illinois as well as before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.  She began her law career in 2007 as an intellectual property attorney then worked in financial and securities litigation at a major New York City law firm.  Her practice included litigation regarding allegedly fraudulent mortgage-backed securities, SEC investigations, and shareholder suits, amongst others. 

She left the grind of big law firm work in early 2017 when she joined the investment firm, Mitchell, Vaught & Taylor, Inc. before co-founding Propel Financial Advisors in late 2018.  She enjoys statistical analysis and market research and works directly with clients on financial planning, investment management, and education.  She is a registered investment advisor representative.
