Peace of Mind in a Difficult Time
Ashley was incredibly knowledgeable and supportive during a very tough time. She gave clear advice and instructions and handled the process completely, and worked to provide me with options based on my financial situations to keep the bill as low as possible. I highly recommend Ashley to anyone going through a divorce or separation.

Thank you Ashley.
It was a situation that overwhelmed and, frankly, frightened me so I hired Ashley. She took care everything and negotiated a fair and just result. I’m really grateful.

Pleasant Divorce
Ashley was my attorney throughout my divorce process. She was always there to answer a question, explain my options, and at times slowly review everything again. I have recommended her to several friends and family, as I felt I could trust her to always have my best interest at heart. As I stated, communication and access was key- unlike other attorneys I’ve heard of, she was always available with a call, email, or in person. During such an anxious and trying time of life, it was beyond comforting to have her in my corner.

Life saving services!!!
I am a father of four daughters ages 9-15. I was served separation papers without warning and my life turned upside down. To complicate matters my now ex-wife filed criminal charges. These charges were absurd, but in NY, criminal charges means that you leave your home, lose your children, and all your rights. Ashley worked with me to navigate through family court, and assisted with the criminal case. She worked with my criminal lawyer to achieve the best possible outcome without going to trial. Truly and undoubtedly, she stepped up at every moment to defend me, help my kids, and keep us together as a family. We went to Supreme Court once the tides changed, as a last ditch effort by my ex. Ashley continued to excel. With a new judge, Ashley still portrayed the situation in such a light that the facts and circumstances were almost seamless and the judge sent us to conference. In conference it was one on one, face to face with my ex and her lawyer. Every detail was considered by Ashley before these conferences. She explained what to expect, discussed each step, and had me prepared for what was coming. Ashley set forth a path that in the end gave me my kids over 90% of the time. I am now officially divorced. I have my kids. I imagine that my case was as bad as they come. I hope for whoever reads this, that your situation is no where near this severe. Regardless, I trusted myself and my family to Ashley’s care. I would do so again in a seconds notice. She was professional every step of the way. Carried herself with poise, and was steadfast throughout. More importantly to me than her obvious abilities as a lawyer, she was compassionate. I felt that she absolutely had my best interests in mind. She saved my family. I am recommending Ashley to absolutely provide the best service available. You will not be disappointed.

Professional Service
Ashley prepared my will, health care proxy, and power of attorney following my divorce. She was very helpful in explaining and guiding me through the process. All of my questions were answered thoroughly. Ashley required me to sign my name multiple times in multiple locations, but, apparently, no more than was absolutely necessary, for which I am grateful. I would certainly recommend her for this type of legal business. Ashley also assisted in my divorce, which was handled by the same firm, and provided similar excellent service.

Nothing but the best
Ashley did an amazing job! She came into a situation that was already about a year an a half on going and pretty messy. The attorney I had before hiring Ashley didn't really do much to help me and kind of left me out to dry. When Ashley stepped in, I knew immediately that I was in good hands. She was extremely informative on what my rights are as a father and very knowledgeable on family law itself. Throughout the entire process she kept me involved and kept me in the loop on what was going on. I spoke with her almost every week just to make sure we were on the same page and also to make sure I was doing all the right things. She was there for me each step of the way, and I never felt that I was being neglected as a client or that I was being judged either. She gave me praise for my actions(reactions), when warranted, and criticism when needed as well. She never let me drop the ball and just made sure that I was doing my part as well as she was doing hers. When it came to negotiations with opposing counsel, they never stood a chance. Ashley was on top of her game the entire process and I never had to worry. In the courtroom, she showed great poise and confidence when speaking to the judge. In my case, luckily, we were able to settle and resolve all issues. I would recommend Jean Mahserjians office to anyone I know going through family court, and specifically recommend Ashley. Thank you so much for everything.

I found Ashley to be responsive to each of my requests. She was timely and realistic in her responses. Any request was met with critical thinking and careful decision making by analyzing and diagnosing potential issues. Ashley's ability to quickly resolve any conflict in proceedings proved to be cost saving and crucial to my case. She was always consistent, honored confidentiality, demonstrated patience and sought understanding of any concerns I had. Ashley was always well organized and prepared to respond to questions, and for meetings with me. I value having been represented by Ashley and most important for her competence and compassion as a divorce attorney.

Outstanding , Professional and Respectful
Ashley handled my complicated divorce case and I couldn't be more satisfied with the results. I felt confident in her recommendations throughout and her attentiveness to detail in the many legal documents.

Just Amazing
I was in the middle of nasty Divorce and I had to change lawyers because they weren't willing to work with me or get me what I needed. Suffice it to say the case was a mess. I Miraculously found Ashley, and I was a bit skeptical at first but she handled my case like she had been a lawyer for 30+ years. She was very professional and willing to go to bat for me, even while I was being a total pain in the neck. Ultimately my Case was settled and I was very happy with the outcome. I would definitely recommend Ashley.
