PRINT

Amber concentrates her practice in the areas of workers' compensation and toxic tort litigation. Her workers' compensation defense practice entails representing employers of all sizes at dockets in southern Illinois and eastern Missouri. She also devotes a portion of her practice to the defense of asbestos personal injury suits, representing the firm's clients at depositions, hearings, and procedural matters.

Prior to joining Heyl Royster in 2015, Amber was a staff attorney at the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission where she assisted Commissioners deciding workers' compensation claims. At the Commission, she drafted hundreds of opinions on review and on remand, gaining advanced knowledge in workers' compensation law. Prior to the Commission, Amber worked at a mid-sized defense firm in the St. Louis Metro East area where she represented clients in the defense of workers' compensation and human rights claims throughout Illinois and Missouri.

Amber earned her law degree and a certificate in dispute resolution from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law. As a law student, she served as Vice-Justice of the Lawson Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity and excelled in legal writing, winning Best Brief in the Board of Advocates Moot Court Competition.
