Meet Amber, a dedicated employment lawyer with a passion for traveling and the outdoors.
Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.
When it comes to finding an advocate for your cause, you will be hard pressed to find an attorney with as much passion and drive as Amber. Prior to law school, Amber worked for the University of Vermont as a program coordinator for its Mexico study abroad program. She also spent time backpacking extensively throughout Mexico and Central America and working in the non-profit community.
While studying at the University of Maine School of Law, Amber was recognized for her volunteer contributions to the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project when she received their Volunteer of the Year Award in 2015, and was also recognized with the University of Maine School of Law Faculty Awards for both Community Service and Significant Achievement. As a student attorney for the Refugee and Human Rights Clinic, Amber assisted low-income immigrants through a broad range of cases and projects, preparing testimony, developing case strategy and appearing in administrative hearings. Amber was also the first-ever law student selected to serve on the board of the Maine Justice Foundation.
In her former life, Amber was:
- Co-chair of the Maine Association for Public Interest Law
- A Judicial extern for the Honorable Kermit Lipez, at the U.S. Court of Appeals First Circuit
When Amber isn’t working, she is…
Travelling, surfing, snowboarding, at a music show, reading, practicing yoga or spending time in the great outdoors.
