Outstanding Law Office
I have had the pleasure of working with several attorneys from the office including Wendy, Ron, and most recently Joanne Sallit-Hull. I cannot speak highly enough of their exceptional service and professionalism. From the moment I stepped into their office, I was greeted with warmth and respect, setting the tone for what has been truly positive experiences. Navigating legal matters can often feel overwhelming, but the team at Ashby Law Offices made the entire process seamless and stress-free. They demonstrated an unparalleled level of expertise and dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for my case. What sets Ashby Law Offices apart is their genuine commitment to their clients. They took the time to listen attentively to my concerns, thoroughly explaining all aspects of my case and providing invaluable guidance every step of the way. Their personalized approach made me feel valued and supported throughout the entire legal process. Furthermore, the communication with the team was impeccable. I was kept informed of any developments promptly, and my inquiries were always met with prompt and insightful responses. This level of transparency and responsiveness truly set them apart. I was particularly impressed by the professionalism and compassion displayed by Joanne. She treated me not just as a client, but as a person deserving of empathy and understanding during what was undoubtedly a challenging time. Thanks to her expertise and unwavering support, I achieved a favorable outcome that exceeded my expectations. I am immensely grateful to Joanne, and the staff at Ashby Law Offices for their exceptional service and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation.

My Late Husband Estate
My husband passed away without a will, and I hired attorney Ashby to settle my estsate. She was very professional and explained the process thoroughly. If I had question or problems, she responded quickly and resolved them. She was very helpful and kind during the whole process.

Exceptional Lawyer, Exceptional Service
We engaged with Wendy at a time when families need her most, my mother was nearing the end of her life, and it was during COVID. Wendy stepped right up to help us with obtaining a Power of Attorney quickly, while taking the time to make sure my mother understand all of the legal language and expectations that a Power of Attorney would hold. Knowing that Wendy handled everything with my mother so compassionately and efficiently, we recently engaged Wendy to prepare a Living Will, POA and Last Will and Testament for a family member. She again went out of her way to fully explain the language, listen to the wishes of her client, and efficiently worked with her staff (who is also wonderful) to prepare, finalize, execute and provide documentation in a quick, non-stressful manner. I would fully support engaging Wendy Ashby Law Offices any time a legal matter is in need of quick, reliable service

Estate/Will Case
With the passing of my Father, Wendy and the team were very helpful and answered all my questions concerning the disposition of his will. Any requests that I made were handled in a timely fashion. I would happily recommend Ashby Law Offices.

Incredibly timely and very professional
My wife and I needed to update our wills and needed very prompt service. Wendy went above and beyond in meeting our timeline. She guided us with great advice and ideas and met with us to thoroughly review what our intentions were. She was extremely professional, thorough and forwarded us drafts to review prior to our meeting to finalize our wills. She is very kind and really easy to work with. My wife and I would recommend her very highly. If I could give 10 stars I certainly would do that.

I recently, had an issue i wanted taken care of. I wanted a power of attorney for my daughters. So if anything happened to me, they would be able to take care of anything they had to. Wendy was very helpful, explained every detail to me. Answered all my questions. made sure i understood everything. I never felt rushed or that she was in a hurry. I would recommend Wendy to anyone who needs a lawyer. Wendy is fantastic, very knowledgeable. She will get you started in the right direction, if you are not sure, she will take the time, to help you till you are sure of what you want.

Professional
When my ex-husband and I were getting a divorce, she was recommended from a friend. After speaking on the phone, she recommended a mediation that both of us agreed to. Ms Ashby kept us both informed and walked us through the process. I have been using Wendy Ashby as my attorney for several years ever since. It's nice that I can call her office, the office personnel are courtious and I get a response from her in a timely fashion. I have recommeded her to friends and I will never hesitate to refer somebody to her.

My husband and I had the BEST "lawyer experience" EVER with Wendy Ashby and her team.
Having dealt with multiple firms over the years...mediation, wills(both mine, my parents and a disabled sister), real estate, etc. I used to dread dealing with Attorneys. My husband(2nd) and I met Wendy Ashby through a reference from a dear and trusted friend who had similar negative experiences.....WOW!!!! What a breath of fresh air! Wendy and her staff were super accommodating, and a fair price(her staff explained how she bills...in order to save me money on unnecessary phone calls). My other lawyer never did that. Her staff was also very responsive when did need them. Since my great experience with Wendy and her staff, I have recommended her to many friends and business acquaintances .

Wonderful Attorney
I had no issues getting through to Wendy and I could always trust that she would do the most time efficient work she could do to help me out. Whenever I had any questions Wendy was great with explaining the answer as simple and right to the point as possible. I never felt lost through my whole case and to this day i thank you Wendy for your great work.

Will Drag Your Case On and On for the Money!
Wendy seemed to want to keep my case going on and on, with the other attorney, even though I wanted it settled. I would receive a letter in the mail practically every day. All this was to her was $$$$. She knew I had just gotten a workers compensation settlement and was determined she was going to use it up on my custody settlement. There were so many billing errors, it was unbelievable. After paying over $20,000 for a simple custody case that never got settled, I had to find another attorney. He settled it in a matter of two weeks. Now 13 years later, a little over $1000 that was in dispute in billing errors has come back to haunt me. She has once again turned me over to a collection agency. I keep telling her to take me to court but she knows I will win. So now I have this on my record again! She does not do what's best for the client. She does what's best for Wendy's pocketbook.
