Amber joined the team at Snedden Hall & Gallop in 2018. She has over twelve years of experience in dispute resolution and litigation, including overseas and interstate. Part of that experience includes launching and managing two regional branches of a national personal injuries firm.
Amber understands that being injured or being involved in litigation affects not only her client’s body and mind, but also their employment, family and lifestyle. Amber is a strong advocate who enjoys working with her clients to achieve successful settlement outcomes, and making a genuine difference in their lives.
Amber’s experience includes advising in relation to workers’ compensation, public liability, motor vehicle and cycling accidents, medical negligence, Comcare and military compensation claims.
Amber has represented clients with catastrophic injuries, complex brain and psychological injuries, and following fatalities.
Given the breadth of her experience, Amber is able to analyse matters critically, and has assisted clients whose claims have been considered ‘too hard’ or have been knocked back by other firms. Amber explains difficult legal concepts to her clients in simple terms, whilst advancing matters in a focused and efficient matter.
Amber is President of Australian Lawyers Alliance (ACT Branch). She is also a member of the ACT Law Society and sits on their Compulsory Third Party Reform Advisory Committee. Amber also provides assistance to several charities and community groups, including those involved in supporting military personnel and veterans, and people with a disability. She was recently on the Board of ACT Athletics.
