Amber Mostyn

Amber Mostyn leads a team of smart, tenacious, battle-hardened lawyers who fight for people’s rights. At Amber’s direction, her firm is sharply focused on obtaining justice for victims of corporate greed and wrongdoing, and her firm’s attorneys remain committed to working harder and being smarter than their opponents.

Before becoming the people’s rights advocate she is today, Amber was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, where she attended and graduated from Trinity Valley School. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degrees from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, with degrees in Anthropology and Spanish. After taking a year off to work in Washington, D.C., and travel to El Salvador, Amber attended the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. There she excelled in trial advocacy, received multiple awards and honors, was inducted into the nationally recognized Order of the Barristers, and graduated in 1997.

Her talents have taken her around the world, and her legal victories in hurricane, injury, and medical device cases have placed Amber in high demand as Liaison Counsel. In the last five years, Amber and Mostyn Law have held a leadership role in twenty-one multi-district litigation and consolidated courts. She has helped thousands of people across the United States and in Puerto Rico recover from natural disasters and sought justice for thousands more who have been injured by defective products. In the past, Amber has also served on the adjunct faculty of several Texas law schools.

Amber’s burning desire to help those unable to defend themselves is reflected in her work and philanthropy. She and her late husband founded the Glenda Jean Mostyn and Joe E. Moreno Educational Foundation whose primary mission is to move mountains for special needs children and their families. In addition, Amber supports numerous charitable causes, including the Hughen Center, Galveston Historical Foundation, No More Voices, National Multiple Sclerosis Society MS 150, Special Olympics Texas, The River, and the Houston Children’s Charity. In addition to her philanthropic work, Amber dedicates time and vast resources to political candidates and progressive causes to make sure that every Texan has a voice in Austin and Washington, D.C. She has held leadership positions in numerous organizations, including the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Texas Democratic Party, Battleground Texas, and most recently as the Chair of Annie’s List, an organization dedicated to changing the face of power in Texas politics by recruiting, training, and supporting women candidates.
