Attorney Pridgen Amos Green
Pridgen (“P.J.”) Amos Green joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2015.
She is a graduate of Hampton University, where she was awarded numerous honors for academic excellence and being an active participant in the community. After Hampton, she continued to excel at the University of North Carolina School of Law in Chapel Hill, serving as a member of several nonprofit associations and competing as a member of the Frederick Douglass Moot Court.
“I decided that a career in the legal field would be the best fit for my personality and interests. I love reading, writing, and engaging in the occasional spirited debate. I’m a passionate advocate for the causes and people that I believe in,” Ms. Green said.
After working as an attorney for several years, Forsyth County noticed Ms. Green’s passion to help try and make sure people are treated fairly and appointed her as a Forsyth County Magistrate in 2009. She served two terms before leaving to work at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin.
“Although my time as a magistrate was rewarding, I am glad to be working directly with clients again,” Ms. Green said. “I like being a resource clients can reach out to – whenever they have questions or concerns. I enjoy being able to make the legal system seem less intimidating and help people feel comfortable that I’m working hard for them.”
Ms. Green is a member of the 21st Judicial District Bar, the Forsyth County Bar Association, the North Carolina State Bar, and the Winston-Salem Bar Association, where she formerly served as Secretary.
She also volunteers with numerous organizations, including the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge, National Black Theater Festival, National Women of Achievement, North Carolina Black Repertory Company, and the Winston-Salem Transit Authority Board. Ms. Green is active in her church and is working to become bilingual in Spanish.
In 2012 she was awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for her work with Forsyth County Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
