About
After graduating from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law with honors, she started her career at one of the largest law firms in the world, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. While there, she tried cases on behalf of large insurance companies. She also landed in the pages of the American Lawyer after a hard-won victory in a federal civil rights jury trial! Soon after that trial, Ashley left Kirkland to work at another large law firm where she represented employers in employment discrimination and sexual harassment cases.

"Yesenia Villalta, LCSW, Therapist, Coach & Trainer Our Happy Clients! I worked with Ashley to submit my trademark registrations for healing program as well as blog/podcast as I rebranded and restructured my business. I found my consultation with her to flow naturally as well as encouraging and informative as I was nervous about the direction I've been called and inspired for my business to go into as well as extensions of it. Ashley was clear, provided guidance and the process was very much streamlined so much that after using her services for the first trademark, I went ahead and sought her for my second trademark for my holistic healing & coaching program. She was able to see the whole picture, honest, direct and kind. I appreciated the payment plans available as this had been a barrier in the past! - Yesenia Villalta, LCSW, Therapist, Coach & Trainer"

"I had the pleasure of working with Ashley on lease negotiations for a new business venture I was seeking. She was extremely thorough and made sure I had the best accommodations possible in my lease. She was prompt on scheduled phone conferences and even checked in with me when I seemed to be stressing, which gave her that human touch that was missing from other attorneys I have done business with in the past. I would highly recommend her to other businesses looking for a highly skilled attorney who is super down to earth and easy to work with! - Tonie N.Robinson, CEO, Children’s First Learning Academy"
