AmberAmber Ray

Client Service Director

Amber feels blessed to have landed at the Neeley Law Firm where she is able to utilize the skills she is most proud of: understanding others, then using that understanding to help them where they need to go. She’s always had a passion for people – be it through helping clients while previously a personal shopper, or picking her friends’ and family members’ brains at home (INFJ, here, for all you MBTI folks out there). When She’s not working or spending time with her girls, you can typically find her on the floor with some paints, or out on a volleyball court (gotta stay balanced, right?)
