I view litigation as a powerful art form. Just like an artist or professional athlete, I strive to continually hone my craft by learning from and working closely with talented partners and colleagues throughout the field of law. Keeping apprised of the ever-changing legal arena is essential to both my professional development and case success rate. Our clients are counting on that.
Amber applies superior analytical and writing skills to her work, counseling clients in the health care, entertainment, professional sporting, retail, energy, and other commercial sectors on matters that include professional liability, first-party property insurance and other various coverage issues. Of particular note, her practice includes zealously advocating to obtain clients’ business interruption losses for physical loss or damage arising from COVID-19. She enjoys insurance for the dual opportunity it allows her to perfect one type of legal practice, while also being exposed to an almost infinite array of industries and underlying issues.
Amber joined Cohen Ziffer after a successful year-long judicial clerkship at the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, with the Honorable Thomas G. Saylor, for whom she drafted bench memoranda and provided recommended preliminary votes on matters before the court. She also supervised the chambers’ interns by assigning, overseeing and editing research projects; reviewed and analyzed circulating majority opinions; and advised Justice Saylor on whether he should join, concur, or dissent from the proposed majority.
As a law student, Amber began developing her practical skills as soon as possible, participating and coaching other law students in various mock trials, including an annual national competition hosted by legal fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta. She also represented Penn State Law as an Advocate in the American Bar Association’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition, an annual moot court engaging law students and legal professionals from across the country. In addition to her oral advocacy skills, Amber consciously sought to develop her writing abilities by drafting three scholarly papers, all of which have been published in various law reviews.
