About Amber

Learn Amber’s areas of practice.

PROVIDING DEDICATION, PERSONAL ATTENTION, AND RESPONSIVE SERVICE FOR ALL FAMILY LAW MATTERS.

Born in Metairie, I lived the majority of my life in the Shreveport-Bossier area. After graduating from Loyola College Prep in 2005, I headed off to Jackson, MS to attend Millsaps College where I majored in Religious Studies, minored in Psychology, and was a Lilly Fellow. As a Lilly Fellow, I completed an externship at Mississippi Families for Kids, a fellowship at the Hinds County District Attorney's Office, and a leadership project at Matt's House Emergency Shelter for Women and Children. I graduated from Millsaps magna cum laude in 2009 and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.

Eager to gain the tools to make a difference, in 2009, I began law school at the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center. During my law school career I completed a summer clerkship at the Office of the Louisiana Attorney General in the Criminal Appellate Division, an externship at the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office in the Domestic Violence Section, and an externship at the Baton Rouge Battered Women's Program in the Legal Services Component. I also worked as a law clerk at Akers & Wisbar and participated as a Certified Student Attorney in the LSU Juvenile Defense Clinic. I graduated from law school in May of 2012, sat for the Louisiana State Bar Exam in July of 2012, and was sworn in to practice in October of 2012.

My desire is to serve the Louisiana community as an advocate for families, children, and victims of abuse. I enjoy doing adoptions, estate planning, family law, protective orders, and successions. I currently reside in New Orleans with my husband, Chris, and am an active member of the Louisiana State Bar Association, the 22nd JDC Bar Association, the 21st JDC Bar Association, the New Orleans Bar Association, the Jefferson Bar Association, the Junior League of New Orleans, the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, New Orleans Young Professionals Group, and Power of Women. I currently serve on both the Children's Law Committee and the Public Access and Consumer Protection Committee for the Louisiana State Bar Association, as well as the Board of Directors for the New Orleans Council on Aging. And I am a Qualified Family Law Mediator. I enjoy cooking, reading, shopping, traveling, and spending time with family, friends, and my dog, Annabelle.

Outstanding
Amber went above and beyond in every way to make me feel like my case was a priority. She was compassionate and understanding and always responded to my messages very quickly and completely. She always took the time to explain exactly what was happening and what could happen in the future. I never had any doubts as to what my options where. I also knew that she was passionate about getting me the best resolution to my case as possible. I could not be more satisfied with her legal representation. I have recommended her several times already and will continue to do so.

Professional and clear
Amber helped me finalize my divorce and represented me in contempt of court and protection order hearings. She was very easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to my questions and needs. Amber was clear in billing and kept my needs and wants at the forefront. She protected my best interests well and did not waste my or her time. She remembered details of my case and made sure I was comfortable with all decisions. She made a difficult time go as smoothly as possible and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a family lawyer. Thank you!

Forever grateful!
After a tumultuous ordeal with my original family-law attorney and nothing but wasted time, money, and energy, finding Amber was such a breath of fresh air and confidence. She immediately got to work on my case, giving me the reassurance that I really needed during such a difficult time. In the middle of dealing with all of the emotions and circumstances that come with divorce and minor children, my ex-husband filed a motion to relocate our children out of state. Since this came with no notice, Amber immediately shifted her focus to tackle this before anything else could be addressed. She worked diligently and maintained excellent communication with me throughout the entire process, fighting for the best interests of not just me, but also my children. She fully prepared me for the hearing and the possible outcomes, and in the end, we were successful in getting the relocation denied, allowing my children to continue the lives they’ve always known. She is intelligent, confident, and committed to her clients from start to finish. It truly was an honor to have her by my side during these difficult times, and I’m forever grateful that she was able to take my case. Thank you, Amber!

Interfamily Adoption (contested)
Our personal experience with Amber Cain as our attorney was with an Interfamily Adoption case, and she was nothing less than excellent! We brought to her a rather difficult situation, with long built-up animosity between parties and hot tempers. Ms. Cain diagnosed the situation and provided an expert and realistic interpretation of the options in front of us. Her experience in these matters helped us choose the correct direction to take legally. Amber was also able to empathize in a professional manner which helped to calm our emotions and temper our behavior. We felt that she understood the gravity of the situation and represented us better and more effectively than we could have done ourselves. The process was lengthy, due to just the nature of the legal system, but Ms. Cain stayed diligent and in great communication with us throughout. I would recommend Amber Cain to friends and family. I have no doubt she could recognize and adapt her approach and strategy to any client’s particular needs.

Definitely the Best!
I had to find a Lawyer in New Orleans to get sole ownership of a Timeshare jointly owned by my late husband and I. Being from Canada and in the middle of Covid, I turned to reviews on Lawyers. When I found Amber L. Cain and the reviews she had, I decided to take a chance. I called her and had a good feeling from the beginning. She handled my case promptly and professionally. Today, I have my probate and it has been recorded. A big Thank You to Ms. Cain!!! May I add... she is a very nice person to deal with!

The BEST
Amber Cain is absolutely incredible. From the very beginning of my divorce process, Amber was on the ball and never missed a beat. Amber gave me the support and courage I needed in one of the most difficult times of my life. She is compassionate and provides complete support every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better attorney. If I ever need assistance in the future (regardless of the matter) I will always go to Amber first to see if she can help. Since the end of my divorce, I have referred other to her and will continue. Thank you Amber for being incredibly supportive and efficient.

Ms. Cain was a joy to work with.
Ms. Cain helped me with the succession of my son's estate. As you can imagine this was a very difficult time for me. She was straight forward, everything was handled in an expedited time frame that I requested and she did everything she promised to do. She let me know what was happening at every stage, always got right back to me and was very pleasant to work with. I was extremely satisfied with her work - she is a shinning example of the new and powerful young women working in law.

Awesome experience!
After many years of marriage, I found myself going through a divorce. Ms. Cain was a very caring and professional attorney. I truly appreciate how she eased my mind through a very difficult process.

Great Attorney
Ms Cain really listens to you. I had delt with another attorney in my divorce but he thought he know what I wanted, but did listen to me. I needed more specific items in my decree, but they were never addressed. Ms Cain understood what I was asking and took care of for me. I was so impressed that I did my will and my living will with her. If I require an attorney, I would not hesitate to call her!

Best in New Orleans
I was pressed for time in finding a lawyer before my child support case was going before a judge. I found and spoke with Amber and she was a miracle. She was knowledgeable, smart, and professional. She took away any stress I had. She negotiated a settlement and I did not even have to attend court! The settlement was perfect and she did not have to do that but she made it happen. I truly felt she had my best interest from start to finish and she proved that time and time again. I would recommend her to any looking for representation . She is in my mind the best in New Orleans.

Very Satisfied
During a consultation with Amber concerning my financial situation, she advised me to take certain steps that would ensure that my children would share equally in their inheritance upon my death without unnecessary court delays. Within a few days, Amber prepared the requisite legal documents and met with me to explain everything thoroughly. The documents were executed and filed that same day. Amber handled everything in a timely manner with the utmost clarity and efficiency. I was extremely happy with her performance.

Dependable, Aproachable, and Confidential
Amber Cain is terrific. I had a few questions about how to start the process for divorce, and Amber was available to walk me through the steps I should take before filing and what I should expect during the process. She was very easy to have a conversation with and made me feel confortable talking to about my situation. She was quick to respond and gave great advice before proceeding with this major life decision. I would recommend Amber Cain to all of my friends and family members.

The best attorney out there!
Mrs. Amber Cain met with me about my child custody case. My child's father had an emergency ex parte and temporary full custody of my child. She helped prove that all his accusations were false as well as got my domiciliary status reinstated. She went against a very tough counter attorney and won. After her recommended hair follicle tests were completed and passed, she proved that I was the best parent for my child's well-being. She spent countless hours and weeks doing research on his accusations to prove them false. She stood up for me and my child's well-being. She was prompt, very professional, as well as simply amazing. My child was taken from me for two months when Mrs. Cain stepped in and handled business. She answered all of my questions and concerns. She even helped me after the case was won. She gave me advise, counseled me, and was there with me through the entire case. She is simply a blessing to work with.
