  • Michael M. Nguyen

    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.

  • Earl Sean Spielman

    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.
