Amber has appeared in the Waitangi Tribunal, Māori Land Court and was contracted as a Lay Advocate in the Youth and Rangatahi Court prior to practising as a solicitor.

Amber completed her Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Psychology and Criminology) at the University of Auckland in September 2019 and was admitted as a barrister and solicitor in the Auckland High Court in July 2020.

Prior to practising as a solicitor, Amber contracted her services to the Ministry of Justice as a Lay Advocate in the Youth and Rangatahi Court.  Amber then went on to join Te Mata Law in March 2020 where she would specialise in Waitangi Tribunal and Māori Land Court matters.
