“She was very good at it. She felt more comfortable in that role,” Giaccone said. “She always wanted to help the underdog. She was very compassionate and caring.”
Defense attorney Therese Huntzinger, a longtime friend, said it might have been easy for other attorneys to underestimate Amos, who didn't walk around with a swagger.
“She had a natural talent, she was brilliant,” Huntzinger said. “She came from a place that had victims at heart and a strong sense of right and wrong.”
Her health failing, and in hospice care, Amos died at her brother's home, her family nearby.
