Amzi Dodd was the son of United States Army General John Dodd. He attended the College of New Jersey in Princeton, graduating with honors in 1813, and read law in the office of Joseph C. Hornblower. Dodd moved to Newark and set up a legal practice there, and he experienced immediate success. As his reputation grew, he was appointed Prosecutor of the Pleas for Essex County and served as the representative from Essex County to the state General Assembly, 1826-1827, and the state Senate in 1823. He was also very active in the Essex Brigade of Militia, from 1810-1823, and served as its Judge Advocate.
