About Me

As a criminal defense attorney, I am passionate about my work.  I strive to achieve the best results possible for my clients by fighting hard to protect their rights and reputation.  I approach all cases in a proactive manner in order to aggressively defend against overzealous prosecutions.  The criminal justice system is not always fair and the odds are often stacked against criminal defendants. I focus on building a strong attorney-client relationship in order to ease the stressful situation my clients may experience.  I also ensure my clients are fully informed at all times and I am readily available to address any concerns that may arise.  It is important to hire an attorney you can trust to be on your side fighting to defend your rights.

  • Adam Boyd Bleile

    Only the highest accolades will properly describe Ashley. She is always calm and cool even under the harshest of pressure. She has established wonderful relationships with judges, prosecutors and other attorneys because of her pleasant disposition. She advances her client's causes because judges, juries and prosecutors just do not want to say "No" to her. A skill that is rare and utilized with skill by Ashley.
