Miracle Worker!
Hire them! I had a fantastic experience with Ashelee and Weeks Law. I am so glad I hired Ashelee to represent me in my Aggravated Assault case. Ashelee was able to get me an incredible deal with only probation when I was looking at no less than 7.5 years in prison! I am so grateful to Ashelee and the firm. She responded in a timely fashion and kept me updated regarding the progress in my case. I would recommend her to anyone! Can't say enough good about the firm! Very happy. -MW

Ashelee was fabulous! I highly recommend contacting Weeks Law if in need of legal assistance.
Fantastic experience. I've never had to elicit the help of an attorney before and was dreading the process. Ashelee Weeks not only provided a professional and efficient experience, but was able to fully remove a moving citation from my driving record. I'm incredibly thankful for her services and would recommend her to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Highly Disappointed
My fiancé and I found ourselves in some legal trouble about a year ago and the charges we had, as well as priors on my record, meant this was not going to be an easy case and the possibility for lengthy prison time was very real. However, the circumstances surrounding the arrest needed to be explored and there were definitely some Fourth Amendment issues that a lawyer needed to look into. Upon hiring Ashlee Weeks, she would not return any calls or emails for a few weeks and when she finally did talk with us she told me that I was definitely going to prison, it was just a matter of "how much time I could live with". I was shocked. She didn't even have any intention of investigating and looking into whether we had a case to fight. It was almost like having a public defender. Ultimately we decided to find a different attorney who would fight for us and do everything possible to not get prison time. After firing her, she charged for every one of the unanswered emails that was sent to her. This firm she was with and Ashlee herself are not about fighting for their clients. We ended up paying almost $7000 for one court appearance, the first one we had, and nothing more other than that horrible phone call with her where she told me I would be going to prison. That is a high price to pay for absolute disappointment. I highly recommend you choose other representation because this one is equal to a public defender and has no intention of actually working to fight for you and your freedom! Oh, and after hiring Jason Lamm, an excellent attorney who actually put the work in and did his job, I ended up with probation. No prison time for me!
