Hailing from McNairy County, Amber brings a wealth of experience in complex litigation, ranging from catastrophic injury claims to unraveling fraudulent schemes on behalf of injured parties.

Prior to joining Harris Shelton, Amber practiced with her longtime mentor and former law partner, the venerable J. Houston Gordon.

For over a decade, Amber has honed her skills as a trial lawyer in both jury and bench trials. Amber has conducted numerous depositions, arguments, motions, trial examinations, and has experience with appeals.

“When you work with clients going through a trauma – whether it’s business or personal – you give them hope,” she says. “I always want to leave them in a better position than where they started.”
