About me

I am a Certified Family Law Specialist and have focused solely on family law issues since 2005, when I was admitted to the California bar.  

My family law practice is focused on strategizing practical solutions for each client, embracing the ideology every client is unique and benefits from a thoughtful approach to resolving their particular issues.   

I believe in empowering clients with knowledge and am an excellent communicator and listener.  I am particularly attuned to the emotional aspects of family law issues and the necessity for ongoing and active communication to ensure that client’s needs and objectives are met.  I excel at rapport-building both with clientele and with opposing parties or attorneys, focusing on crafting workable solutions. 

I have completed a 40 hour mediation certification program and attempt to resolve matters outside of court and/ or prior to trial whenever possible, I am also a successful advocate in adversarial proceedings and vehemently promote my clients' interests through litigation when necessary.

  • Alice Pak-Yan Cheng

    I have worked with Ashley as the opposing counsel in a case. She is thoughtful and willing to work with all parties to reach a fair and equitable settlement and is not one of those attorneys who will push for further "bleeding" emotionally or financially. I endorse this attorney.

  • Stephen Joseph Gorski

    Ashley worked with me at the beginning of her legal career and focused on Personal Injury and Employment Law matters. She was bright, articulate, proactive, interacted well with clients and was a valuable asset to my firm. Currently, I refer any of my clients who need family law services.
