Amber Shaw
Harris Shelton Hanover Walsh, PLLC - Covington

Raised in McNairy County, Amber focuses her practice on helping people throughout West Tennessee. Her practice focuses on complex litigation, ranging from catastrophic injury claims, like representing those injured in car wrecks to products liability injuries, as well as unraveling fraudulent schemes on behalf of injured parties. Trial work has shaped her practice over the last fifteen years, and she has tried cases in Shelby, Dyer, Tipton, Lauderdale, Hardeman counties – even traveling into Middle Tennessee.

Prior to joining Harris Shelton, Amber practiced with her longtime mentor and former law partner, the venerable J. Houston Gordon, for twelve years. Handling both jury and bench trials, Ms. Shaw considers it a privilege to represent individuals and business owners at a time that is often difficult and overwhelming.
