When I was served three days before my hearing, which was almost 800 miles away, my nerves shot through the roof. However, not even an hour or two later I was able to get Ashley on the phone and working for my rights. The degree of dedication you can see in how she represents you was all the more comforting as well. She's organized, detail-oriented and incredibly intelligent. From the time I first spoke with her there was never a doubt in my mind about her competence. Usually, it can be difficult to communicate with attorneys because of their busy schedules; however, big or small, if you have even the slightest concern or question she will make the time for you to go over whatever it is that might be bothering you. Simply put, Ashley sincerely cares about the cases and clients in her charge, and the quality of her representation truly shines in a court room. She will fight for your rights as if they were her own, so when she was able to have my case dismissed I wasn't even the slightest bit surprised.
