Amy Boardman Hunt
Amy founded Muse Communications in 2016 after 30 years in legal journalism and public relations. Her clients have included some of the largest law firms in Texas, as well as a variety of boutiques and individual attorneys in a wide array of practice areas.
She is committed to providing her clients with tailored marketing solutions to meet their individual goals. Amy has decades of experience in traditional media relations as well as content marketing, and is able to craft a marketing strategy using one or both approaches, depending on a firm’s needs.
In addition to helping lawyers grow their practices, she is an evangelist for the gospel of self-promotion, particularly when it comes to women lawyers. Amy believes the best self-promotion isn’t blustery or obnoxious. It’s tasteful, informative, and, most important, deployed strategically.
Amy is a native Texan and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. She can be reached at email@example.com or 214.801.8116.

Having dedicated her career to marketing communications, Christina has served lawyers and law firms on both the agency side with Cooksey Communications and Androvett Legal Media, and in-house with Gardere Wynne Sewell. She has an active member of the Legal Marketing Association since 2011, and served as membership chair in 2015 and 2016.
While she handles a variety of tasks for Muse Communications, Christina’s primary role is newsletter design and development. With an eye for design and a particular expertise in conversion copywriting, Christina creates newsletters that fit the technical requirements of the ever-evolving digital landscape, align with a firms’ brand identity, and include messaging that drives audience engagement.
Christina earned her bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University, where she majored in Journalism and Spanish. Her hobbies include pub trivia, yoga, and travel (next up: cruising the Baltics. Bon voyage!).
If you’d like to contact Christina about law firm marketing – or if you have some obscure knowledge and think you’d be a good trivia teammate – send her a note at email@example.com.
Clearly, much has changed during our three decades in journalism (Amy’s first “laptop” was a Radio Shack TRS-80 and her first newsroom didn’t even have a fax machine), but what hasn’t changed is the importance of a concise, well-told story.
