I spoke with a number of lawyers before I hired Will. What I really liked about Will is that he spent a lot of time discussing my case with me. He also quickly pointed out a number of problems with the evidence that other lawyers failed to mention. Will kept me informed of everything going on with my case and definitely helped me feel better about the legal system. He won my BMV Hearing, therefore I never lost my license; and the State dismissed the case against me because of a "Motion" Will filed against them--this was prior to my Court date, thus I never had to make an appearance. He even showed me the email from the prosecutor stating that the case was dismissed.
An OUI charge is serious. It is also terrifying. I realize I received the absolute best outcomes; however, that doesn't minimize the significant amount of fear and anxiety I experienced, as well as the sleepless nights in the beginning. Will fought tirelessly for me and was very reassuring during the whole ordeal. You want someone like Will in your corner. He knows what he is doing, and he will fight for you.

Big mistake in hiring this lawyer. He never believed me; he never believed in me. He refused to argue my case on its logical merits and insisted on inventing some bizarre strategy based on a minute detail that he thought would convince the BMV appeal judge. I lost my license for 3 years. He seemed more interested in maintaining his chummy relationships with BMV insiders and the DA's office rather than vigorously defending my case.

When Mr. Ashe took my case this past year for a DUI I didn't think there was much hope for a positive resolution. He was dedicated, hard working, and relentless in his pursuit in helping me find a positive resolution to the situation. I am grateful for his work. He cares about your case no matter what the issue and has been a pleasure to work even after everything was sorted out.

During the three years I spent as Will's coworker, I found myself continuously impressed with his legal strategy, knowledge, and results - especially in the field of criminal defense. Will works as hard as he can toward the best result in his cases.
