"A history of excellence in client advocacy."

A creative problem solver, Ashley is dedicated to developing novel legal theories to obtain relief for her clients. Since joining the Law Office of Darren Wolf, P.C., Ashley has concentrated her practice on representing survivors of sexual abuse, harassment, and discrimination.

 

Ashley has represented plaintiffs in a variety of complex disputes—including class and collective actions and multidistrict litigation. She played an integral role in filing the first nationwide class action against e-cigarette manufacturer “Juul,” for its deceptive marketing efforts to addict a new generation of nicotine users. Ashley also obtained a seven-figure settlement in a civil rights class action for detainees denied adequate food and nutrition, in violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment and the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause.

 

A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Notre Dame Law School, Ashley served as Co-President of the Hispanic Law Students Association and Senior Articles Editor of the Notre Dame Journal of Legislation. In law school, Ashley spent time with the Department of Justice at the U.S. Embassy in Bogotá, Colombia, where she assisted the Judicial Attaché coordinate extradition requests.

Ashley, a New England native, is based on the East Coast when not in Dallas. A fluent Spanish speaker, Ashley taught for three years at American schools in Honduras prior to attending law school.
