My family decided to Hire Susan Ashley a few months before my brothers case was going up for his first parole review. We were skeptical like anyone else would be about hiring someone we had to seek out and do research on. We made the right choice with Susan Ashley because my brother is coming home! Ms. Ashley was very honest with us from the beginning on his case since he did have an agg. robbery. She did ensure us however that she would try her best to help us in getting him approved. Ms. Ashley went out of her way to learn about our family to better understand him. She was extremely professional in abtaining all the necessary documents and paperwork. She even made the 3 hour trip out to see him and personally get to know him and discuss his case with him. I was blown away by the way she was able to put everything together and present it to the board. If anyone is hesitant about hiring someone to help with a parole case, Susan Ashely is The One.

My husband was convicted of a felony & given 5 years in TDCJ, this was his 1st criminal offense ever. We were referred to Susan by a friend who also used Susan. Susan was able to get that friend set free on her 1st parole. I contacted Susan who reviewed the case & drove over an hour to meet my husband in TDCJ before she would say yes or no to taking the case. Susan wanted to meet my husband & get her opinion on the case before she just took my money. I was very appreciative of that as we had already paid so much in attorney fees. Susan met with my husband, got more details & decided to take our case. Everyone in TDCJ would tell my husband you never win your 1st case & all kinds of negative things. I met with Susan a couple times, got a great parole package together & would ask her questions & she was very helpful. She even contacted the trial attorney that we had used for the case to get more details & facts about the case. Once the date was set for us to talk with the parole board then Susan & I met to prep for the phone meeting with the Parole Board. We had previously met a couple times but that was all in regards to the parole package, case details & getting us to this point. Now she prepped me on how the conversation would go, how to answer & to get the facts that I wanted to share about my husband, etc… I had been shocked that we didn’t meet earlier to start prepping me for the call, but after we met I understand why we didn’t meet sooner as she wanted it all to be fresh on my mind. When the time for us to talk with the parole board, I met at her office & we called them. She was very prepared when she spoke to the parole board, she had remembered & had notes for all the facts that my husband & I had discussed with her. We worked well together, she did excellent presentation & the case was voted PAROLE on the 1st review!!! We will never be in this situation again, but I will definitely refer Susan to anyone that I know who needs a Parole Attorney.

My son just made parole on 3 felony cases. 2 were for intoxication assault and 1 case of felony DWI. We can thank Susan Ashley for representing him at his parole hearing. Susan visited him at his TDC unit and spent 2 hours discussing his case with him.
His trouble began 20 years ago when he was 19 years old. He has a history of alcohol related offenses. Susan understood his situation and was prepared when she presented his case. The first time she presented his case he got the best possible result and was granted parole.
As his family we were very satisfied with Susan because she communicated with us about his case and always took our phone calls herself. My son was very happy and pleased with Susan Ashley.
I would highly recommend her for any parole case.

I have known Susan Ashley for over ten years, but only recently got to work with her on a mutual case. She is diligent, dutiful, and result driven. We had a nearly impossible parole case with bad facts on the face of it, and yet she was able to get parole granted. I recommend Ms. Ashley highly.

I endorse this lawyer. Susan Ashley brings a tremendous wide breath and depth of experience in criminal defense to her cases at the trial level and her parole/post conviction practice. I have worked with Susan Ashley and discussed countless criminal cases with her. I trust her judgment and I would say that she has superior instinct when it comes to making difficult decisions in criminal cases. Due to her knowledge, experience, and passion for her work, Susan has achieved outstanding results with respect to obtaining parole for her clients with difficult cases. I have known Susan Ashley professionally and personally for over twenty five years. Susan's diverse abilities and gracious personality have made her a trusted lawyer with clients and their families and a welcome guest on legal shows aired on radio, TV, and streamed on the internet. Susan truly makes a difference.
