About Ashley

Learn Ashley’s areas of practice.

When finding the right personal injury lawyer, experience matters — and Ashley Watkins is living proof of that. As a former defense attorney for insurance companies, Ashley saw firsthand the lengths the insurance industry goes to avoid paying injured people what they deserve.


Ashley also saw how low-fee attorneys settled cases for pennies to avoid doing work and investing in their clients. She watched sleazy lawyers sell injury victims on low overhead with an empty promise of more money in their pockets. And that's not right.


Ashley started Sam & Ash Injury Law because couldn't watch injury companies and shady lawyers take advantage of injury victims.


Ashley uses her unique knowledge of how the insurance industry works to get accident victims the best results possible. Through her passion and determination, Ashley has helped thousands of accident victims recover millions of dollars. She has been recognized as an American Academy of Attorneys Top 40 under 40 and is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. She was most recently voted Vegas Inc Top Lawyer Community Choice Trailblazer award.


She's the improved version of the injury attorneys you think you know. The results Ashley gets are the direct result of her passion for doing What's Right and giving you the care and compassion that you deserve. With Ashley, every case matters, which means your voice will always be heard.

Making pain painless!
Ashley made the whole process from start to finish so easy. She was upfront snd honest through the whole thing. She was more than a lawyer, she showed her true compassion and how much she actually cared. Definitely would not have recovered as much without her either.
Response from Ashley Watkins February 3, 2022
Thank you for trusting our firm with your case, Tony. We know how important a personal injury case can be. It's often your one shot to be made whole after an accident. It was a pleasure working with you and helping make sure you got more from your settlement.

Excellent service and attitude, got me what I was looking for
I was hit by a road raging tractor trailer driver and was livid. I hunted down security camera footage, got it, and tried to take on their insurance company on my own. Shockingly, that got me nowhere. I'm not the "go to a lawyer" type but the accident was so egregious that it needed to be addressed. I ended up choosing Sam & Ash to represent me because of what they weren't. Not the loudest ads on TV. Not the ambulance chaser type. I just wanted someone to see what happened to me, and get me the money I felt I was entitled to - namely my deductible and the depreciation to my car. Ashley and her team took it from there and they got me a result I felt was fair and just - and got the trucking company to finally do what they should have done in the first place... the right thing. Highly recommend Ashley and her firm.

Response from Ashley Watkins February 3, 2022
Thank you for your kind words, Shawn. Dealing with the insurance company is always difficult — especially when it's the insurance company of a tractor trailer. Insurance companies make a lot of promises until it comes time to make good on them. We are so glad we were able to help hold them accountable and get you what is fair.

Compassionate Counselor
Ashely really cares about her clients. She has taken time to answer questions over the phone and she's never settled for less than what's right. Ashley is someone who you won't have any doubts trusting with your case because she's personable, authentic, and knowledgeable about the law.

ASH = THE BEST
I had another lawyer first that never called me and when he did it was about all the things that couldn't be done for me because of a liability dispute, and they cancelled one of my doctor appointments. So I called Sam & Ash and they gave me answers and help getting back to my doctor. Ash was not worried about the liabilioty issue and ended up getting me the maximum settlement. No matter what your situation is i recommend Ash and her team to help.

BEST PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
I had another attorney working my case but was not satisfied with their communication. I felt that I was stuck and was nervous about changing attorneys halfway through my case. I decided to call around and see if I had other options. After being unable to get a hold of anyone else on a Saturday, (my lawyer at the time included) I called Ashley late at night. She picked up, talked me through everything, an answered my questions. I felt so comfortable and was immediately put at ease. Ashley even explained the process and told me my options including staying with my current attorney. It was very clear that Ashley cared about me, my health, and my case, not about convincing me to hire her. At that point, the choice was clear, I needed to move forward with Ashley. I did not want to deal with the transition between attorneys, or even communicating with my former attorney any longer. Ashley explained to me the process and took care of streamlining everything and communicating with my former attorney. Ashley’s team immediately reached out to me and gave me the communication and understanding of the process at each step. I at all times felt informed, confident, and cared for. I received an excellent result on my case. I could not recommend her anymore. Bonus: rocky the mascot and team spirit manager (who is a dog) is the cutest pup I have ever seen. Who doesn’t feel comforted during a stressful time with a friendly doggo?

Too many injury victims accept poor service from law firms, thinking it’s just the way things work. At Sam & Ash, we pride ourselves in truly helping people. I'm happy to hear you had a great experience and, more importantly, that you got the help you needed. Thank you for your kind words and willingness to refer our firm!

THE BEST ATTORNEY
Hire Ashley. I am not a person that generally writes reviews but I think it is important to give recognition where it is deserved. Ashley is not just an "attorney." She is thoughtful, well-versed in the law, and incredibly informative. I was in a car accident over the weekend. I was referred to Ashley by a friend who told me to give her a call. I didn't have to wait to speak with her on Monday--Ashley answered my call immediately over the holiday weekend. No attorneys do that!! Ashley was professional, helpful, provided me with immediate clarity, and put my mind at ease. Ashley's guidance proved invaluable. Ashley helped resolve my matter immediately without the need for protracted litigation. It is very clear that Ashley is and was looking out for my best interest, and was not simply looking for a new case. I trust Ashley with my family and refer, with confidence, any one to her.

A brilliant and compassionate attorney
It is my pleasure to write this review for Ms. Ashly Watkins who represented me as my attorney from the law firm Bergener Mirejovsky. Ms. Watkins is a welcoming, kind, and exceedingly competent attorney, in full control of the case from the beginning of the process to the very end and beyond. Having an accident and then going through the legal process, dealing with an uncompromising and self-serving insurance company, was grueling for me. But under the guidance, and steady and competent hands of Ms. Watkins I was able to follow her instructions and the process ended in success thanks to her dedication, persistence, and vigilance. Ms. Watkins is a brilliant attorney and a magnificent human being. This combination renders her powerful and successful. She explains complicated legal procedures and logistics in straight-forward manner, without sacrificing the complexities of the laws involved. She is honest and trustworthy, knowledgeable and skillful, with a kind, compassionate, and delightful personality. I was fortunate to have her as my attorney. I heartily recommend her to anyone.

Personalized Expert Care
Ashley and her team were absolutely amazing in every way possible. They helped me navigate the complex world of insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, and claim adjustors while focusing mainly on my health. They collected, organized, and submitted all the bills and documents that were necessary to process my claim. I did not have to deal with any of the headaches associated with all of that. All I had to do was focus on getting better physically. Ashley's expert knowledge in handling the insurance companies and kindness in interacting with her client is what sets her apart from other attorneys. I recommend her without any hesitations for her skills, knowledge and compassion are unmatched in her profession.

Really Cares
My case was predicated on a car accident. My initial injuries were established, however, subsequent injuries because of the accident would not be acknowledged by the insurance company. While this case is not the biggest case in the world, I am compelled and honored to write this review because from the very beginning, starting on the phone, I was treated like I was the only client in existence. At one point they offered to help me resolve an issue with my care, even though they were not mandated to do anything. Truly, my review should be a video, because it is difficult to express in simple words to care, focus, fight, and relentlessness provided to me on a case that cost the attorney more than it returned. In fact, the attorney gave me a part of her portion, just to make me happy. Keep in mind, I was already impressed, so after that, I was blown away. While it is true that many do not trust attorneys, I will tell you that Ashley and her associates, has the skills of well-trained attornies but the fortitude of those that fight to care and care to fight on their client's side even at the cost of their own pay. I wish them the best because that's what I received from them every step of the way.

Personal Atty
Ashley is a awesome atty. I often contacted her with several questions and she was always patient and very knowledgeable. Ashley was very straight forward with me even when it hurt. However, I became very comfortable with her and I'm pleased that learned to rely on her expertise. My outcome for my case was awesome. Thank you again Ashley!
