Summary

Ashley excels in the field of Workers Compensation and has received a CALI award for “Excellent Achievement in the Study of Workers’ Compensation Law” exemplifying her skill in the area. Ashley has completed an externship at Taylor and Associates (the largest Arizona Workers Compensation firm), published technology law articles, worked for a well known American Technology Entrepreneur as a law clerk for Inter123, and worked as a Legal Clinician in the areas of: Human Rights and Immigration Law, Mediation, Veterans’ Tax, and Veterans’ Legal Assistance, Ashley chose to set a focus upon Immigration Law after going through the process of filing for permanent residency with her husband, a German Citizen. Ashley believes that Immigration Law can be daunting for individuals and is an area where many are often taken advantage of. She is dedicated to helping clients with Immigration and USCIS communications. She has narrowed her focus to Immigration Law, Workers' Compensation, and Business Law. However, Ashley will take on cases in other areas of law depending on the issues involved and her knowledge on the particular matter.
