About me

Amber Anstine Kraft, Esquire is a 2000 graduate of The Dickinson School of Law of The Pennsylvania State University. While pursing her studies there, Attorney Kraft served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable George E. Hoffer in the Court of Common Pleas of Cumberland County, an associate editor of the Dickinson Law Review, and a member of the Appellate Moot Court Board. In 2000, Attorney Kraft graduated from law school and served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Russell M. Nigro of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, honing her skills in appellate advocacy.  After her clerkship with Justice Nigro, Attorney Kraft worked for the Law Offices of Dale E.
