What Our Clients & Collaborators Share About Us...
Omar Madhloom, SFHEA FRSA Senior Lecturer/ Solicitor University of Bristol Law School
Amber Turner's online lecture on holistic lawyering to the University of Bristol was both interesting and informative. Amber highlighted important issues facing lawyering such as well-being and dealing with clients in a compassionate manner. The student feedback for this lecture was very positive and the aim is for this to become a regular event in the Clinic calendar...
Margaret Rodriguez, Former Client
“When my close to 30-year marriage broke down, I was in my late 50s. I had been looking forward to my husband’s retirement and all the lifelong plans we would finally enjoy. Now I was heart-broken. Lost. Devastated. His leaving came as a complete shock to me. I was numb and couldn’t think straight. I didn’t know anything about our finances. I had allowed myself to become very dependent on my husband. I was stressed, fearful and anxious about my present and what would become of me, my future?
Dr Mike Talbot, Founder and CEO of UK Mediation
"I had the pleasure of Amber joining us on one of UK Mediation's training courses back in 2014. It was clear from that first experience that Amber is a legal practitioner with a difference. She clearly puts the client at the centre of what she does and has a level of empathy and consideration for service users that can be sadly lacking in the field.
Asia Dimitrova, Author on Autism
“I met Amber through a course and we became friends. She is a very ‘sparkling’ person, very clever, very intelligent and very human. I was going through a very difficult time. I was going through a divorce. The war… Amber could not take on my case because I was living abroad but as a friend I was on the phone and during every single call she helped me to calm down and focus on what was really important.
David B. Wexler, Co-Founder Therapeutic Jurisprudence, USA
"Holistic Lawyer Amber Turner was a Guest for the very first meeting organized by the UK Chapter of the International Society for Therapeutic Jurisprudence, https://www.intithcom, held in June 2019, at the Open University of Milton Keynes. I was to be the Keynote Speaker in the first Conference planned for 16th April 2020 at Plymouth University, with Amber invited as one of five Guest Speakers.

Jeffrey Rhodes, Former Client
I could say that it was by luck that Amber was recommended to me by a friend, after a chance meeting in a supermarket. But I can say for sure that God's hand was involved in directing me to her.
Les Roberts, Former Client
Amber was brilliant throughout my case. She had to endure the venting of my frustrations yet showed extreme patience, understanding and complete professionalism.
I cannot thank her enough. By the end of the process I was looking forward to moving on. Excellent work. Thank you so much Amber
Nicole Pizarro, Former Client
I first met Amber during one of the worst moments of my life, during my separation. At a time when you are most vulnerable it is essential to find someone you can trust and who not only advises you on the law but also on what is best for your family at such a traumatic time for all.
Joey Baglietto, Former Client
“Me and my former partner had just split up and it was messy, heavy and a difficult time of my life. I had never ever gone to a lawyer for anything so for me it was all new and a big mountain to climb… I just couldn’t find how to approach it. It was all so difficult for me. Everything was black… I went to a cousin of mine and she advised me to approach Amber Turner...
Kit Bigelow, Member, Advisory Board at the Religious Freedom Institute
“Amber and I attended a seminar together in the Netherlands on applying spiritual principles to work, family and all other aspects of life as well. She offered a panel discussion on women, which was grounded in experience, compassion, insight and humour. I consider meeting her one of the highlights of this event.”
Victor Gonzalez, Former President Gibraltar NASUWT (Teachers' Union)
I have had the pleasure of working with Amber as part of a team tasked with reviewing Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar’s Dignity at Work Policy, following the introduction of the Employment (Bullying At Work) Act 2014.
Daphne Galia, Former Client
“My emotions were… I was very angry at that time, I was also very sad. I was overwhelmed with everything so it was very difficult to speak; very difficult because pain doesn’t allow you to talk… it was very easy to speak to Amber though… I left home… and Amber said at 3 O’clock you have an appointment with a counsellor. So as from that day I started going to counselling…

Marie Fox, Art As Therapy
My name is Marie and I teach Art as Therapy and Tai Chi as healing arts. I joined Amber Law’s Team of Holistic Professionals in 2014 because I know that adults and children going through the stress and anxiety that legal disputes such as separation and divorce carry, do benefit from the mental and emotional support these creative practices have to offer.
Henry Pinna, Public Services Ombudsman Gibraltar 1999-2003
I have known Amber since 1999, when as Gibraltar’s first Public Services Ombudsman I recruited Amber amongst many other applicants as one of two qualified lawyers who would act as my Legal Assistants. I saw that she had the professional and human qualities I was looking for.
Annett, Former Client
Professional. Efficient. Personable. Empathetic. Amber is an expert in her field. As her client I felt well understood and her advice was insightful and to the point at all times. I would definitely recommend Amber to anyone who faces legal challenges.

Christian Hermida, Former Client
It is not easy when you have been married for 18 years and you come to the day when you have to acknowledge that your marriage is breaking down. The fear of failure, the fear on where this leaves your children, the uncertainty, not knowing what it will lead to, will cause anyone in that situation a lot of stress and anxiety. I could not understand why my marriage was breaking down? The thought of not being with my children or not seeing them on a daily basis, was heart-breaking, unbearable for me.
Jessica Vassallo, Former Client
I met Amber at her chambers when I approached her for legal advice in 2009. I was in the process of getting divorced. It was the most difficult time of my life; I was overwhelmed and vulnerable. In every aspect Amber made feel very secure, comfortable and calm and advised me on what were the best approaches for the well-being of my daughter throughout the whole process.
Tyrone King, Former Client
Throughout my entire case, Amber was always incredibly responsive and spent time walking me through each step. She is incredibly professional and yet down to earth making the stressful process more calming. Amber always gave me considered advice on how to resolve the matter as peaceably as possible and away from the court room. I highly recommend her.
Roseanne Sene, Former Client
I have known Amber for over 15 years through our love of Yoga, however it wasn’t until recently that I needed her professional services. I discovered not only that she is very professional but also her holistic approach to her work and her passion for philanthropy which she has invested not only with her clients but in Gibraltar’s community and further afield. I am so proud to know this vibrant, strong yet caring lady.
