Excellent
I hired Ashley to represent me during my recent divorce and couldn’t be happier with my experience. Ashley was very professional and knowledgeable. My case was complicated and at times seemed that it was never going to get resolved, but Ashley was always on top of everything and worked hard to advocate and fight for what was in my best interest. She was always easy to get in touch with to answer any questions or concerns I had and always communicated to me any updates or new information regarding my case in a timely matter. I would recommend Ashley to anyone seeking legal counsel in family law. She is simply one of the best.

Creative
I consulted with a couple of attorney's prior to contacting Ashley Marelius. After speaking with Ashley, I knew she was the one for me and I'm so grateful she was able to take my case. Ashley provided alternatives to resolve my case that the other two attorneys I consulted with didn't bother to explore. I would highly recommend this firm, Ashley specific, to handle any family law issues that you may have. Ashely is professional, courtesy and above all else listens to your specific challenge and will work with you to resolve your issues in an expedited manner.

Supportive, knowledgeable counsel
Highly recommend Ashley Marelius, Ruby and company. I had to change lawyers because the 1st one was noncommunicative. Ashley called me back the same day I called her. I knew she was going to be great. She walked with me through probably the hardest 18 months I've ever been through. Her knowledge, patience and resources helped find our way through a labyrinth of having to submit subpoenas to find hidden assets, secure a qualified skilled forensic accountant, and through all that and more she stayed in touch with me to put me at ease, was very polite to opposing counsel, and kept everyone level headed. She knows her stuff.

Highly Recommended
The trials and tribulations of my divorce (15 year marriage, 19 year relationship, 1 minor child, joint house and vehicles) have been intense and confusing. In a rather bewildering time in my life, Ashley was there to give me honest answers, legal ramifications, feasibility, protections and encouragement. She has found a way to balance professionalism and human empathy in a way that I find admirable and immensely helpful. While I hope never to have to go through such a harrowing experience again, I would not hesitate to turn to Ashley again. I highly recommend this professional.

Professional, empathetic, and a true advocate
I was recommended to Ashley Marelius by a former partner of the firm. I was in a terrible state and feeling desperate, but he reassured me, “Ashley will take care of you.” I am happy to say he was right. Ashley accepted my case, which while not complicated, was born out of extremely emotional and traumatic circumstances. She has a well-deserved reputation of being very quick to respond, thorough, communicative, and empathetic. She is a true advocate who cares about her clients. Her concern was getting the case resolved fairly and amicably, as quickly as possible, rather than seeing how many hours she could bill. She took measures to find resolutions that avoided needless delays and unnecessary expenses, while always providing advice in a timely and professional manner. Her paralegal, Ruby Perren, proved a lifesaver on many occasions. I am extremely grateful to both of them for treating me like a person, rather than a client.

As good as they get
Hiring Ashley Marelius (with Ruby Perren) to represent me in my divorce was the best decision I made. She calmed my nerves from the very onset. Her legal fees were very reasonable and her retainer was low enough that I didn't have to break the bank to get amazing representation. I VERY HIGHLY recommend Ms. Marelius (with Ms. Perren).

Consistently exceeded expectations!
Ashley was hands down, the BEST! Despite my rollercoaster of emotions throughout the divorce process, she remained cool, calm and collected and reassured me through every step. Ashley consistently exceeded my expectations, stayed on top of things, and was always available to answer my questions.

Ashley is awesome!!!
I couldn't recommend Ashley enough. Through my divorce, I left every interaction knowing that she had my children's best interest at heart. She understood the emotional toll and took immense care when navigating me through the process. Her ability to demand level headedness and reasonable decision making (from both sides) helped us cross the finish line. Thank you Ashley!

Knowledgeable, responsive and cares
Ashley took the time to understand my unique situation and clearly explained what to expect and all the options. She is the perfect blend of fierce (direct, no bs) and compassionate. She’s an attorney who TRULY keeps best interests of the family in mind - not what’s going to make her the most money. If keeping things collaborative is your aim, she should be your choice. At the same time, she knows her stuff and won’t let you be taken advantage of. Ashley limits the number of clients she takes so that everyone gets top notch communication and attention. I never waited very long for a response to email. Highly recommend!

Outstanding representation
Ms. Marelius was my attorney for the past several years in a case that went on for a long time. She is very prompt in getting back any time I had questions and very good at making sure she talked me off the ledge when I felt like things were going sideways. Takes a well rounded person and lawyer to be able to understand the client as a human and not just another case. She is compassionate and understands the real life struggle that is family law because of her experience with clients and working alongside veteran partners. I feel the staff at the courthouse (clerks, judges, etc) respect her because she shows respect on behalf of her clients in the courtroom. She is thoughtful in her plan of action and is a pleasant person to work with as well. Breen, Ball & Marelius is lucky to have her as an asset.

Fantastic Divorce Attorney
Working with Ashley Marelius was a pleasure, during a very un-pleasurable time. She was quick, efficient, knowledgeable, quick to respond to emails, and billed fairly. She listened to my concerns, and took them very seriously. She was invaluable during my divorce proceedings, and offered not only sound legal advice, but compassion during a very difficult time. She gave me the space to try to work things out between myself and the other party when appropriate, but did not hesitate to step in and and vouch for what I wanted, and needed. She kept me updated frequently, and made sure I had no questions remaining at the end of my case. I highly recommend Ashley for anyone who is going through a divorce, or any other legal matter.

I highly recommend
I highly recommend Ashley for child custody and parenting time needs. She made the process feel incredibly smooth with her expertise and recommendations. During our consultation she was able to recommend an alcohol monitoring company “Sober Link” that was the perfect solution to my concerns regarding the other coparent. I did not even know this resource existed and it was exactly what I needed. Originally, I anticipated having to take more drastic measures and instead they were completely alleviated with her recommendation. I was impressed with her availability and fast responses to all of my questions and concerns. I knew what to expect due to her ability to communicate the process effectively and I felt her fees were fair and transparent from the beginning. Her billing process and agreements were simple and convenient through an online platform to minimize in-person paperwork. She was encouraging and understanding which made this process much more manageable. Everyone knows how scary family law cases can be. Our children’s lives are literally on the line and I can’t think of any situation more important or terrifying. I cannot explain how empowering it was to finally take the necessary action knowing I had someone I could trust to help navigate the system. As expected, I received push back and threats from the other party and Ashley provided the support and reassurance through this difficult time. I can’t count how many times I thought “take my money”. She is well worth the cost and I am confident she will be able to help me navigate any custody needs I may have in the future.

Sticky Divorce
Ashley helped me work through a very sticky divorce in which the Ex and I were not communicating at all.. she did a wonderful job in not only helping push me to gather documents and feed her information necessary, but she worked diligently against the opposing counsel as well. Hopefully I never have to go through this again, but if I do, Ashley will be my first call.

Ashley is wonderful!
I would love to give Ashley Marelius a RAVE review for being an amazing divorce lawyer! Ashley is knowledgeable, extremely personable and easy to talk to as well. She is quick and efficient in her responses. I was nervous and overwhelmed about this whole process, but Ashley immediately put me at ease and guided me through each step providing advice when needed. I can't say enough good things about her. She is someone who wants the best for her client and is available to answer questions when needed. I have already recommended her to another friend because that is how much I trust Ashley and her abilities. She is a professional, but also someone who cares. I appreciate all she did for me and know she will continue to help so many others moving forward. I would add another 5 stars if I could to her rating. Thank you!!!
