Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Amber Gregg has been selected to the State Bar of Texas and the Texas Young Lawyers Association Leadership Class (LeadershipSBOT) for 2020-2021. The yearly class recruits, trains and retains Texas lawyers for positions of leadership in the legal community and the Texas State Bar.
Gregg has been in the DA’s office for eight years and currently works in the Specialized Crime Division for Dallas County.
“I am so honored to serve my community and be considered as a community leader within the State Bar of Texas,” said Gregg. “The DAs Office has definitely opened up many opportunities to expand my leadership skills and I don’t take anything for granted.”
The Oak Cliff native earned her B.B.A. from Texas A&M University in 2008, and her J.D. from Texas Wesleyan University in 2011. While a student at Texas Wesleyan, Gregg was President of the Black Law Students Association and a member of the first school Mock Trial team to advance to the National Competition. The member of the Alpha Xi Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. currently serves on several boards for local organizations around Dallas, including as the organizer of her own Women’s Empowerment group, You CAN Sit With US DFW, a support organization for professional women.
“Amber is such an asset to our Division and works to accomplish great things in the community too,” said Melissa Meyers, Chief of Dallas County’s Specialized Crime Division.
