As a father it can be hard to find a caring divorce attorney. Ashley is very different. After my initial consultation I hired her on the spot to represent me because she didn't treat me as just another client. I could tell she actually cared about my specific divorce situation as a father and was going to do all she could to ensure the best possible outcome.
Through the entire process she was there to hold my hand on what became a very emotional divorce. She insured that my best interests as a father as well as the interests of my children were taken care of and explained what to expect each step of the way. She was and is quick to respond to any calls or emails that are sent.
Since the divorce has been finalized I have had to consult her on a few occasions to ensure I knew where I legally stood on concerns that I had. She knows the law inside and out and always provides the direction that I need.
I would never wish divorce on anyone but if it comes up I would be sure to refer them to Ashley.

I recently retained Wine for a custody modification filed by opposing party. During my initial consultation, I felt that Wine gave me honest advice based on her experience, rather than making promises in an effort to secure a client. This is one of the things I look for in an attorney. However, on the other hand, I did not get the impression that she was willing to "fight" for what I wanted as counterclaim, hence the 4 stars only. I believe that it is important to act as client advocate even if the attorney does not "think" a judge will grant a requested relief. My hearing is scheduled for soon. Will update review postings with more details as needed, to share this process and my experience with this attorney as compared to other Atlanta attorneys.

Ashley is a very easy attorney to talk to and very personable. She focuses on conflict resolution and finds the ultimate solutions to difficult situations. She is very detailed and does her homework prior to court appearances. She definitely knows her craft extremely well and my wife and I were very pleased with the outcome of our custodial and parenting issues with me ex-wife.

I hired Ashley Wine to help with my child custody case for my son. Ashley did a good job in getting all of the necessary steps taken care of to make this process as smooth as possible. Thankfully, with the evidence I was able to obtain myself and a willing opposite party the entire ordeal was not bad, putting aside the longevity the courts took to process everything. On the downside the cost(s) were fairly substantial and kept adding up over time. I wasn't very excited about that issue. However, in the end the result ended in my favor as far as custody was concerned.

Detailed, honest, and adept. These are the core competencies of Ashley Wine. Detailed -> Ashley is practically an archaeologist as she will continue to dig until every relevant artifact is unburied. Honest -> If you want a lawyer to tell you what “you” want to hear, it’s very easy to find one on Google. If you want someone to tell you the facts and realistic outcome of your case, Ashley will tell it to you straight. Adept -> The legal system is complicated. I wouldn’t take too much advice from your 3rd cousin that owns “Erin Brockovich” on DVD. Ashley has litigated in front of judges in all the core counties of Atlanta. This review is coming from a once very scared parent who was faced with a child relocation case that lasted 16 months. Today, I continue to parent as stronger person. Today, I know my rights were represented with passion. Today, the best interests of my daughter prevailed. Today, I rest easy. Thank you Ashley

Reading the reviews of Ms. Wine on Avvo.com and attending my initial consultation is what ultimately became my deciding factors of hiring Ashley Wine as my attorney. The initial consultation was comprehensive, concise, and informative. Ms. Wine was very helpful to thoroughly explaining what to was going to happen and what I should expect going through the legal process. Unfortunately, my experiences with previous attorneys were horrible and very unprofessional. After hiring Ms Wine, I can honestly say that I change my view on hiring an attorney and feeling comfortable about legal representation. I am satisfied and I would definitely hire her again.

Ms Wine and her team have represented us in a very unusual termination of parental rights case. She has been very supportive of what we wanted and at the same time consulted us with the very best law practices in this matter. Needless to say that thanks to her absolut professionalism and her attention to details we were able to overcome this hurdle in our path of life. Thank you again for all of your help Ashley, Ansley and Carrie you guys are simply the best.

When I knew it was time to file for divorce, I asked several friends for a referral. I interviewed three firms, and ultimately chose Hackett & Wine because during the initial consultation, I felt that Carrie Hackett was empathetic to my situation. She explained the process to me in layman's terms, then explained that Ashley Wine would be my main contact, but that they both work together on all cases. Once I met with Ashley, I felt very comfortable that she and Carrie would work together as my legal team, which turned out to be the case. Both were always up to date regarding the status of my case, and always filled in if the other was unavailable to address any need I had. Because it was such an emotional period of my life, both were compassionate, but reminded me to view the case as a financial transaction and to do my best to leave my emotions at the door anytime we went to court or mediation. This helped me to maintain a level head and let them guide me with their legal expertise. Both were responsive to my emails and phone calls, and always prepared me for what to expect at mediation and status conferences. I needed referrals for an insurance agent to provide me with healthcare, dental, and other policies as well as an accountant to provide information regarding how to structure a pension I would be receiving in the divorce. Hackett & Wine had a network of professionals to assist with those matters, which relieved me of the burden of searching on my own. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone.

Ashley Wine is an attorney well equipped to navigate the often testy waters of domestic litigation. Ms. Wine possesses the proper mix of intellectual "know how", compassionate understanding, and tenacity. These traits prove sure in helping arrive at satisfied closure of my long, unnecessarily contentious legitimation, custody, and child support case. I strongly recommend Ms. Wine if you are in need of a well qualified, domestic relations attorney.

Ashley is a very knowledgeable in child custody law!! My son needed an attorney to represent him in a highly contested child custody case. We met with 4 attorneys and my family felt that Ashley was the best fit. We worked with Ashley for 9 months and because of her deep understanding of child custody law, every alleged issue that was brought up the outcome was in our favor due to Ashley's deep understanding of child custody law.
We are very pleased with the outcome of the case and would recommend Ashley and use her services again if needed.
