Amber Mostyn

Amber Mostyn leads a team of battle-hardened, smart, tenacious lawyers who fight for people’s rights at her firm in Houston. Mostyn Law is a truly unique law firm, sharply focused on obtaining justice for victims of corporate greed and wrongdoing. Every single person at Mostyn Law, from the attorneys to the support staff, is committed to working harder and being smarter than our opponents.

Before becoming the people’s rights advocate she is today, Amber Mostyn was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. She earned her degrees from Vanderbilt University in both Anthropology and Spanish. After taking a year off to work in Washington D.C. and El Salvador, Amber attended the University of Texas School of Law. There she excelled in trial advocacy, received multiple awards and honors, including induction into the nationally recognized Order of the Barristers. Amber has served on the adjunct faculty of several Texas law schools teaching trial advocacy.

Amber’s 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. Amber and Mostyn Law have held leadership roles in 19 multi-district litigation and consolidated courts. She has helped thousands of people across the United States, with a second office in Puerto Rico, recover from natural disasters and sought justice for thousands more who have been injured by defective products.

Amber’s desire to help those not able to defend themselves is reflected in her work and philanthropy. She and Steve 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 YMCA, YWCA, Bo’s Place, Youth Development Center, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the MS 150, Special Olympics Texas, and The River/TUTS, among others.
