Amber Gonska, Esq

Elder Law Attorney – Licensed in FL and WI

Amber Gonska is a Wisconsin native and an attorney at Elder Advisors Law, LLC, a law firm that helps families and protects generations. Before being an attorney, Amber was the Medicaid Case Coordinator for Elder Advisors Law, LLC. She had a 100% approval rate for her applications during her tenure. 

She also was a psychiatric social worker for several years. This is where she discovered her appreciation for how intertwined and complex the medical, legal, and financial worlds are—and how much families benefited when they had an advocate on their side. Her client-centered approach was born from these experiences. Everything centers on helping people discover their goals. Regardless of the circumstances, her goals remain the same: to provide people with peace of mind while protecting future generations. 

At Elder Advisors Law, LLC, Amber focuses on probate, trust administration, and estate planning. To address the unique challenges of elder law and special needs planning, she uses personalized wills, trusts, power of attorneys, and other techniques. Each possesses its ability to assist with asset protection, Medicaid, Medicare, and Veterans Benefits. 

As a true lifelong learner, she double majored in Psychology and Social Work with a minor in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. She continued her education by earning her Juris Doctorate from Thomas M. Cooley Law School at Western Michigan University—where she received a full scholarship and graduated Cum Laude (with honors). She is a proud member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, Lawyers with Purpose, and the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA).

Amber comes from a very close-knit family. She grew up with both her grandmas who required long-term care, and family caregivers stepped in and provided those services in their homes. From these personal experiences, she understands the complications that accompany these situations. She incorporates her empathy for families by helping them to navigate their long-term care issues. 

Amber aims to challenge many of the typical stereotypes associated with lawyers. Her greatest hope is that her clients feel supported, listened to, and understood while knowing that they have an ardent advocate on their side. 

On a personal note, her greatest joys are her five nieces and nephews. On most weekends, you will find her at their soccer games, ballet recitals, or football games to cheer them on. Besides her family, Amber loves to travel (next stop: Europe!), host family and friends (she would love to open an Airbnb one day), support her favorite charities, and all things DIY, design, and home remodeling. Her current project is helping her first-time homebuyer sister renovate her new home.
