After graduating from Winona State University in 2001, Amber started her legal career working as a family law legal assistant for Attorney Lawrence Downing. Motivated by the work done by Mr. Downing and the other attorneys at his firm, Amber went on to attend law school at Hamline University School of Law.  During law school, Amber continued working full-time as a family law legal assistant.  Upon graduating from Hamline in 2006, Amber began serving as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Joseph F. Wieners in Olmsted County.  At the conclusion of her judicial clerkship in October of 2007, Amber returned to work with Mr. Downing as a family law attorney.  When Mr. Downing retired in the spring of 2010, Amber and her partner, Steven Dittrich, established Dittrich & Lawrence, P.A.    Amber is a member of the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association, the Minnesota Bar Association, and the Family Law section of the Olmsted County Bar Association.  Amber has also been named a rising star by Super Lawyers in 2014 and 2016.  Amber’s practice includes all aspects of family law including divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, paternity, and adoptions.
