Ashley's warm and positive attitude immediately put my mind at ease. From that very first call, a huge weight was lifted from my heart and that was because of Ashley's calm vibes and encouraging words and actions. She helped me and my daughters escape long-term domestic abuse and played a huge part in ensuring our safety, and there is nothing more important than that. Having Ashley's support and genuine care made all the difference in our lives and gave me the strength I needed to persevere and ultimately succeed in a situation that once felt impossible. Ashley has been and continues to be there for me in the toughest of times and words cannot express my gratitude. I strongly recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a calm, confident, and caring attorney to help you and your family get to a place of peace and solace.

Ashley saved me and my son from a toxic situation. She helped me guarantee my son had a healthy happy life by helping me through the custody and divorce process. She was diligent in making sure all of the paper work was done properly and on time. I owe so much to Ashley as my son and I would not have the happy life we have now. She saved my son from growing up in a toxic environment. I know she has heart for this and will work her hardest for her clients. I know because I have seen it first hand. I would definitely recommend her services and I tell all my family and friends about her.
