Claimed Lawyer Profile
Biography

Haeggquist & Eck partner and trial attorney Amber Eck is a tenacious advocate for employees, consumers and shareholders, and has been for the past 26 years. Amber has taken cases to trial in both state and federal court as lead trial attorney, and has recovered millions of dollars for her clients in settlements, including multiple six- and seven-figure settlements. Amber doesn’t shy away from high-profile defendants — a fact well-illustrated by her role as co-lead counsel in the well-publicized class action against President Donald Trump and Trump University, which settled for $25 million. For her work in the case, which spanned seven years, Amber and her partners took no fees. In 2016, the Trump University settlement was deemed one of California’s Top 50 Class Action Settlements.

Amber has represented plaintiffs in employment cases for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, unequal pay, and discrimination based on gender, race, religion, pregnancy, disability and age against such major corporations as Trader Joe’s, LuLaRoe, Dollar Tree, Cemex, and an international fast-food chain.

Amber is dedicated to providing pro bono legal assistance to underserved populations. She is a current member of the Southern District of California’s Pro Bono Panel, and just this year was lead trial counsel representing an inmate in a jury trial for violation of his 8thAmendment rights. She is also a member of the Lawyers Club of San Diego Human Trafficking Collaborative. She previously received the SDVLP Distinguished Service Award for her pro bono work in the case Sanchez v. County of San Diego (alleging searches of welfare applicants’ homes were unconstitutional).

Outside the office, Amber enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, and scuba diving. Her favorite pastime, though, is spending time with her husband, Jeff, their two incredible daughters, Jordyn and Kathryn, and their poodle puppy, Cody.
