The Best
Ashley literally saved my world from crumbling. I was scared to death, my future was looking grim, it was win or a world of hell for me. To me it looked like an uphill battle and I honestly didn't think I was going to make it through this storm. Ashley kept me calm, when I was freaking out. Her confidence and knowledge of arguing confusing legal matters was amazing. She had a powerful presence in the court room, was fair priced and honest from the jump. My defense was flawlessly executed from A to Z. My case was dismissed the day of trial. Ashley is a gifted attorney; you want her in your corner for sure. Thank You, Thank You,Thank You !!!

Civil Order
I met Ashley once to explain my situation in the civil order that I had. She is smart, confident, respectful, thorough, honest, knowledgeable and compassionate. She went through all the documents that I provided and came well prepared for the case. I was the defendant in the case. She was taking notes in the court while the plaintiff was explaining their side. She also explained the process well and answered any questions that I had while the court was in session. The plaintiff ended up dropping the case. Prices are fair compared to other highly rated attorneys. She is wonderful to work with. I will hire her again in the future if I had any legal needs. I highly recommend her.

Attorney McCormack helped me respond to an ethics complaint at the MA BBO. She is thorough, responsive, and an excellent communicator. She was quick to answer all my questions and concerns, and provided high quality work product. Also, her knowledge in this area of law helped to deliver a positive result. I highly recommend Ashley and her firm for any ethics work. Thank you!

Business formation
Ashley formed an LLC for my consulting practice and created an operating agreement. She was extremely knowledgeable and attentive to my needs, which required a quick turn around. She was a great resource and I would use her services again.
