Ashley was patient, kind, friendly and professional throughout this long, dragged out divorce (which was dragged out by my ex!) I am extremely thankful to her for enduring it with me, and for getting it settled :)

I found this women to be of the highest integrity of any Attorney I have ever dealt with. She was always honest and actually told me ways to keep my costs and fees at a minimum. I always felt that she was doing the very best she could for me in handling my divorce. She was always on top of everything, planning ahead and always prompt with responses and getting things taken care of . In addition she showed compassion and understanding during a most stressful time in my life. I would highly recommend her over any others.

Attorney Richter was very helpful and always quick to respond. She came in at the end of this case but was able to help me out with the final details and questions I had and knew what she was talking about. She made me feel very comfortable in her abilities and I will be using her again in the future if needed.

My new wife and I went to Ashley to redo our wills, financial power of attorney, healthcare power of attorney, and related documents. Ashley prepared the documents quickly and professionally in accordance with our wishes. Where we wanted something that she didn't recommend, she took the time to explain in laymen's terms why she didn't think it was a good idea. We went to Ashley because she had done a fantastic job representing my daughter in a domestic abuse case.

Ashley is very good at was she does. She is very personable and will discuss your options with you making sure you understand them and help you decide what you want to do instead of pushing you to do anything. If there is anything she doesn't know the answer to she will research it and get back to you in a timely manner. I really enjoyed working with her. Most importantly I trusted her and I felt comfortable talking with her about anything.

Ashley eased my mind and made life a little less stressful during a very stressful time. She was very straight forward and honest, and always kept me up to date on things as they happened. She seemed to answer my questions before I could even ask them! Any time I did have a question she answered very quickly and thoroughly. I have already recommended Ms. Richter to a couple people and will continue to do so in the future.

I was nervous to go into court on my own and contacted Ashley who took on my case just a few days before I was supposed to show up for a custody hearing, and went right to work notifying the court of the changes and preparing with me. She was always available and made sure I knew that she would try to get me what I was asking for, yet gave me the advice I needed to make good decisions. Her fees were fair and she was flexible with payment schedules. I would recommend her and I will retain her again for any future legal proceedings.

Ashley has been extremely helpful in my case, and always quick to respond. She has been a strong advocate for me and my best interests. She is trustworthy, honest, and straight with me on making decsions. Ashley has provided exceptional service to me, and has worked with me to keep services within my budget. She will not be pushed around or is intimated by other lawyers. She has proved this during my child support issues with an ex husband. Ashley went over and above to prove the discrepancies in my ex husband with valid documentation and paperwork. Ashley is sure to help you within your legal rights and will fight for that. She know s her stuff, and is extremely organized in court. Ashley was able to back all of her statements to the judge, and if he asked for something, she had it.

Ashley was the second attorney I hired for my divorce. She reorganized everything and got my case on the right track in a fast manor. After hiring her I finally felt at ease during that stressful period of my life. I highly recommend her! Ashley is very diligent, professional and knowledgeable.

I could have not asked for a better attorney. She stood with me thru thick and thin. She worked very hard and knew what was going on at all times. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am very very grateful for her and her services.

I began working with Ashley Richter when she practiced at a previous firm, at which time she was assigned my case because the attorney that I hired was unavailable for the court dates.
Ms. Richter was on time, professional, and compassionate in our pre-hearing meeting. She was knowledgeable, prepared, and well equipped to handle my case. Ms. Richter translated my concerns into a thorough document, and walked myself and my ex through the provisions. She was an excellent negotiator, fair in her assessment, and realistic in her advice. The outcome was exactly what I expected, if not better.
Ms. Richter moved to another firm, but I contacted her directly to discuss new concerns. She was very helpful in navigating the family law system, as well as knowledgeable in my options. Ms. Richter was engaged in my case, and a fantastic translator of the process, throughout the court proceedings. Again, the results were favorable, and timely.
We all know that an attorney is not cheap. Ms. Richter was very fair with her billings, had detailed logs of time spent and services rendered. She was flexible in her payment terms, and her retainer was more than reasonable. She even went the extra step to include attorney's fees in a court order that we were bringing action on.
I can not say enough about her professionalism, confidence, compassion, and sharp knowledge of law. Through my discussions with her, while awaiting court, I learned that she is a sponge for knowledge. She shared with me her desire to branch out into additional areas, to seek understanding and perspective. She works with a great team of resources!
I would highly recommend Ms. Richter's services, and consider her "my attorney" when it comes to navigating the court system and complex code of laws.

She held me together though a very difficult process. I always felt she cared about me as a person. She was always there to answer my many questions.

I hired on Ashley after trying to represent myself in a pro se divorce. I had gotten in over my head and was losing custody and placement of my daughter.. Considering the mess that Ashley walked into, she did a great job in getting me back 50% custody and scheduled visits. Among many other things the Marital Settlement Agreement she drew up was amazing. So much so that the Judge even complimented her on it saying that it was "very specific and well written."
Dealing with divorces can be very difficult, emotionally exhausting and expensive. The retainer and rate that Ashley charged me was very fair. She also was very compassionate and understaing the more my X continued to drag this out.
All in all I was very satisfied with Ashley and impressed with her determination and hard work. I would highly recommend her to anyone. (and already have)
Thanks again Ashley.

I was married for 28 years...never thought in my wildest imaginations I would find myself hiring a lawyer for divorce. When I contacted Ashley I was immediately taken with her. She did not push...gave me information, what I needed to do on my end to help in the settlement and the time to decide. She told me when I was ready to pursue the next step to call. Took me 6 mos before I called to initiate the legal process. It went smoothly, she kept me informed and was available when I had questions or concerns. I felt that I mattered and she was looking out for my best interest. She was professional but caring too. I would recommend her and the Westmont Law Offices! They are good people.
