Amber Williams is a native of Jupiter, Florida, from a close-knit Italian family.
Her parents were third-generation small business owners in the amusement industry, specifically carnivals. She spent a majority of the summers of her youth with her sister working at the concession stands and being introduced to people from all walks of life. She learned the value of hard work at a very young age, and this has stuck with her ever since.
The unique experiences from her background opened her eyes to the plights of all Americans, especially children. Amber and her sister have always been close, attending school all the way through college together. Her sister graduated from UCF with massage therapy training, and now manages a restaurant back in Jupiter. Her parents maintain their home in Jupiter also, although they have expanded their business to international arenas and now manage the carnival on tour in the Bahamas as well.

While studying at Stetson Law School, Amber focused on how the combination of her studies in law and business could support her passion for helping families and children. She structured her coursework to supplement her knowledge from her family's business background, and worked with her advisors and professors to structure the most beneficial way she could prepare to help families who own businesses and are going through legal troubles. She excelled in classes of finance, accounting, and children's legal issues. She was also active as the Secretary of Phi Delta Phi, the legal fraternity.
During her work at Stetson, Amber was also employed with the Coye Law Firm, gaining valuable experience in the probate and litigation departments. When she graduated in May 2011 with honors, she was awarded the William F. Blews Pro Bono Service Award for the outstanding community service and volunteer time she dedicated.
After passing the Florida Bar exam in summer 2011, Amber was accepted as a practicing legal associate with the Coye Law Firm where she continues to work with clients on a variety of cases including probate, estate planning, family law, condo and homeowners association matters, and domestic and civil litigation.
She is a member of the Orange County Bar and the Orange County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. She has been a committee member of the OCBA YLS since 2014 and has served as the Community Service Chair since 2015.
Amber is also applying to the Bar of Washington D.C. and the American Bar Association, and has plans to apply to represent clients in Federal District and Bankruptcy courts.
