Ashleigh Raso practices personal injury law with a concentration on medical device product liability. She understands that every struggle affects each person and family differently and that the result of their conflict can have a profound effect on their lives. She approaches each case with the weight and thoughtfulness that it deserves and is dedicated to working hard and fighting for her clients who were injured by the carelessness of others.
Ashleigh was born in Rome, New York, and raised in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, where at the age of eight she knew she wanted to be lawyer. Ashleigh's childhood dreams stuck with her through high school and took her first to Winona State University where she earned a B.A. and B.S. in Political Science and Public Administration in 2008. Before law school Ashleigh worked for a U.S. Congressman learning the interactions of the federal and state government. Then in 2009 she attended William Mitchell College of law where she earned her J.D.
Ashleigh joined Meshbesher & Spence in July, 2010, as a law clerk and subsequently passed the Minnesota State Bar in 2012 and began working as an attorney. Ashleigh also became licensed in U.S. District Court (MN) in July of 2013 so she could expand her work in the field and even better serve her clients.
During law school, Ashleigh volunteered with the Minnesota Justice Foundation, particularly in Street Law, where she worked closely with underprivileged and at-risk youth to help them understand their legal rights and obligations, as well as the basic rights and responsibilities of citizenship in a democratic society. She also was co-chair of Out!law at William Mitchell.
When not in the office, Ashleigh can be found with her friends, on the volleyball court or with her dog Baileigh, who she rescued in 2010.
