Amber Chen has been practising exclusively in the area of personal injury since 2008, because she is inspired by the strength and tenacity of her clients and is passionate about helping them get the best possible outcome to help them on the road to recovery.
I see first-hand the financial and emotional strain placed on injured workers and their families and the devastating impact that this can have on the workers' physical and mental health.
Motivated by the desire to live in a more just and equitable society, Amber studied a Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Laws at Monash University, completing her studies in 2008. She then commenced her articles of clerkship before being admitted to the Supreme Court of Victoria in April 2009.
Being able to use my legal expertise to assist injured workers and helping them navigate a complex legal scheme; ensuring that they are aware of their rights and entitlements is what drives me.
Prior to joining Shine Lawyers, Amber worked for another national law firm from 2010 as a WorkCover solicitor. During this time she also gained experience with motor vehicle accident claims by representing injured motorists.
In addition to her wealth of experience in personal injury matters, Amber is multi-lingual; able to help clients who speak Mandarin, Hakka and Cantonese.
