Amber's Background

Amber is originally from Monterey, California but considers Arizona her home. In 2016, Amber graduated from Arizona State University after earning her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. She graduated summa cum laude and finished her degree in just three years. Amber is a proud double devil and carried on at Arizona State University to receive her Juris Doctorate in 2016. During law school, Amber had multiple externships with focuses in criminal and family law. Amber also volunteered with the community legal clinic with the desire to give back to the community. Amber graduated law school in 2019 with a pro bono distinction for her volunteer work.

After she graduated law school, Amber moved forward with her career in criminal law at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. As a deputy county attorney, Amber prosecuted hundreds of cases involving felonies and misdemeanors. She contributes her passion and perseverance to the desire to help victims and families of crimes. She successfully litigated more than 10 trials and countless oral arguments. She made daily court appearances and drafted hundreds of legal agreements to resolve cases, so she is very comfortable in the courtroom. After almost 3 years of practice in this field, she moved to Platt and Westby, PC to use her trial advocacy skills in more diverse areas of law.

On weekends, Amber enjoys exploring the outdoors alongside her Australian shepherd and husband. She loves to travel globally to experience different foods and culture. Being a self-proclaimed taco aficionado, she enjoys all the restaurants that the valley has to offer and is always up for trying new cuisine. Amber is also an avid animal lover and volunteers with a local animal shelter in her spare time.

EXCEPTIONAL - EXCEPTIONAL - EXCEPTIONAL!SO glad I did the free consultation!I have a dear 83 year old friend, I'm his POA, and a Trustee on his Revocable Living Trust.My friend wanted to make changes to his Trust, some which were just complicated enough to cause me concern about whether his original Trust could be amended to accommodate those changes, and whether I'd legally be able to enforce those changes -- to make sure his last wishes are honored -- when he passes.Our free consultation with Andy Rahtz, was invaluable in helping sort out our concerns! I am SO grateful, for my friend's sake!Andy went through our long list of "what if" questions, and gave SUCH great advice, taking the time to walk through the pros and cons of several ways we'd considered moving forward to accomplish what my friend wants to do.I appreciated SO much Andy's direct, frank, objective legal views, and because of this call, understand the best course of action, going forward, so *I* am able to best help my friend have his last wishes honored.I can't possibly give Andy a high enough endorsement for the peace of mind and GREAT legal advice he gave. Wow. Just wow.read more

I had a consult with Andy today, and as an attorney myself, I really appreciated his candor, honesty on Platt & Westby's expertise, and overall assistance. While it turns out they do not handle the type of case that I have, if you are looking for lawyers with integrity, these are your people. Their consult scheduling process was also very organized and easy. Thank you all!read more

It's ok if you already know you'll win otherwise you're just suing yourself trying to communicate with them. I guess it's the same everywhere now days. Not like the old days when you were not a victim on both ends 😆read more

Andrew Rahtz is the most knowledgeable and professional attorney I’ve ever met. He handled my case with care and helped me navigate the complications of my case. With him, I was able to get near 100% custody, legal decision making and child support. I cannot recommend the the legal team at Platt and Westby highly enough. Thank you Andy!read more

I was referred to Andy Rahtz by a mutual friend to review a situation that I was told by other firms would be fruitless. Right from the start, Andy gave me incredibly helpful advice. He explained things in a way that was easy to understand and gave me hope. Extremely knowledgeable in all the different facets of law surrounding my business case, he answered any questions I had quickly, courteously, and (just as important 😉) accurately. I always felt he always had my best interest in mind and made it a priority to keep me in the loop with the progress being made on my case. I highly recommend Andy and the team at Platt & Westby! Thank you for helping me get justice!read more

RahtzHe gave me his undivided attention and seemed to genuinely care. In my experience, it has been very tedious and daunting to begin a conversation with an attorney, especially one at a law firm with other partners, etc. That is, usually law firms won't lend an ear, it seems, unless you pay $100-300 initial consulting fee, which is basically a $15 overview of your case and whether they think it's worthwhile$$$.However, not only was I surprised to see Attorney Rhatz offer a no-cost consultation, but he also kept it "real." He advised me with information that even seemed to work against his assumed interest in profit (i.e., he didn't try to exploit me for money), such as by providing me with self-help research suggestions, and even helped me put together an outline for my case.He didn't want me to lose more money winning with him (he didn't want me to spend so much money to retain him, that even if winning the case, I'd still be at a net negative dollar-loss).He gave me his undivided attention, asked questions that showed he actually paid attention, and was very resourceful with directing me towards credible sources of jurisprudence.What's more, is that he didn't throw me out after 15 minutes, but rather stayed with me until he felt I was sufficiently informed with the material and answers to questions to send me along my way.This man even read through all my notes and connected with me as a person.I also appreciated his aggressive, but civil, nature towards vanquishing the countering party. He is strategic, he is prepared to preempt the countering party's legal arguments by first calling them out himself, and sparks reassurance that he is sedulously and astutely on the case.Obviously, I would recommend attorney R Andrew Rahtz for the aforementioned reasons, despite only meeting with him one time on an preliminary consultation.read more

I wrote in to a law message board asking about a step in my case and Mr. Peter Westby replied with some sound advice. I emailed him to thank him for his advice and shared with him I was not being represented. He offered to meet with me to go over my case and possibly about representing me. In our meeting he allowed me to give him all the details of my case and he spent a good amount of time offering advise and insight to the law pertaining to my situation. Mr. Westby was very patient and allowed me to ask multiple questions and was thorough in his answers. Because I live 2 hours away and in a different county (Tucson), and because my case will most likely go to trial and the cost of travel for him to represent me I am unable to retain Mr. Westby as my attorney. However, if this were to be taking place in Phoenix I would hire him in a heartbeat. I appreciate his willingness to talk with me and spend his time assuring me about the steps i'll need to take in my case. He was very prompt in his reply to my question and then for scheduling a phone conference to go over a case he prob knew he wouldn't be able to take given the distance.read more

Meet with Peter today and was very impressed. I had a large tile job that was done improperly and was not sure if a lawsuit made economic sense. Peter was straightforward and told me that if the contractor did not have sufficent assets, a lawsuit would be risky because a favorable court decision might not result in a payout. I now know what I need to do thanks to Peter.read more
