Sharon's experience
Amber was more than helpful to me. She was always willing to take my calls and answer all my questions. This was my first experience in this kind of lawsuit and I couldn't have been more pleased with her. I would recommend this firm to everyone.

I also grateful to have had Amber and the whole team at Zhe law fighting for me.
The day I entered this office I knew I landed in the right place. I was wrongfully terminated because I refused to allow the Resort I worked for to garnish my wages by illegally changing my time records. I felt broken from this situation but once I met Amber, Alreen, Jenna and the whole team they made me feel like I had the support I needed to fight back for what was right. I never once felt the need to question their opinion, strategy or decision, they always took the time to listen and give their advice. The team at ZHE Law gave me confidence and worked hard In my case, I am happy to say my case was settled! I hope to never need their assistance again, but if I do they are definitely the right people to call...I would be happy to see them all again because they are all genuine, educated, dedicated, hard working people that are great at what they do. Thank You everyone at ZHE!

Great and Knowledgeable Attorney Who Will Help You Every Step Of The Way
My husband and I were part of a class action lawsuit a few years ago. During that time, Amber was always available with the best professional assistance. She always made sure we were informed and fought for our best interest. She represented us with the utmost knowledge of the law. She was always available to answer questions. Recently, we were going through a legal matter, and we found out that part of our settlement was never legally carried out by the other party; however, we couldn't find our settlement documents. We contacted Amber Eck, and she immediately took the time to research our case. She was in constant contact with us, and within the week, the other party took care of their part of the settlement and we were relieved of any legal responsibilities; thus, clearing our name. Attorney Eck is an excellent attorney, and will help you every step of the way. She knows the law, and will use it for your best interest. If you want a good attorney, choose Amber Eck. You won't be sorry.

A True Professional
Ms. Eck is the attorney you want on your side. She is tireless, competent and always available. If you are ever in the unfortunate situation where you need legal representation, Ms. Eck is absolutely worth your consideration. I met with numerous attorneys before I finally chose Ms. Eck to represent me. Although she was clearly very busy, she made the time to meet with me and provide all the options I had available. She put it all out on the table and didnt make any grandiose promises. Straight forward, factual and no pressure. Thats why I chose her. She is a true professional.
