Ashley’s Recent Reviews
Ashley prepared my will, health care proxy, and power of attorney following my divorce. She was very helpful in explaining and guiding me through the process. All of my questions were answered thoroughly. Ashley required me to sign my name multiple times in multiple locations, but, apparently, no more than was absolutely necessary, for which I am grateful. I would certainly recommend her for this type of legal business. Ashley also assisted in my divorce, which was handled by the same firm, and provided similar excellent service. – Tom
Nothing but the Best
Ashley did an amazing job! She came into a situation that was already about a year an a half on going and pretty messy. The attorney I had before hiring Ashley didn’t really do much to help me and kind of left me out to dry. When Ashley stepped in, I knew immediately that I was in good hands. She was extremely informative on what my rights are as a father and very knowledgeable on family law itself. Throughout the entire process she kept me involved and kept me in the loop on what was going on. I spoke with her almost every week just to make sure we were on the same page and also to make sure I was doing all the right things. She was there for me each step of the way, and I never felt that I was being neglected as a client or that I was being judged either. She gave me praise for my actions(reactions), when warranted, and criticism when needed as well. She never let me drop the ball and just made sure that I was doing my part as well as she was doing hers. When it came to negotiations with opposing counsel, they never stood a chance. Ashley was on top of her game the entire process and I never had to worry. In the courtroom, she showed great poise and confidence when speaking to the judge. In my case, luckily, we were able to settle and resolve all issues. I would recommend Jean Mahserjians office to anyone I know going through family court, and specifically recommend Ashley. Thank you so much for everything. – Ryan
I found Ashley to be responsive to each of my requests. She was timely and realistic in her responses. Any request was met with critical thinking and careful decision making by analyzing and diagnosing potential issues. Ashley’s ability to quickly resolve any conflict in proceedings proved to be cost saving and crucial to my case. She was always consistent, honored confidentiality, demonstrated patience and sought understanding of any concerns I had. Ashley was always well organized and prepared to respond to questions, and for meetings with me. I value having been represented by Ashley and most important for her competence and compassion as a divorce attorney. – Alan
Outstanding , Professional and Respectful
Ashley handled my complicated divorce case and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the results. I felt confident in her recommendations throughout and her attentiveness to detail in the many legal documents. – Lenny L.
I was in the middle of nasty Divorce and I had to change lawyers because they weren’t willing to work with me or get me what I needed. Suffice it to say the case was a mess. I Miraculously found Ashley, and I was a bit skeptical at first but she handled my case like she had been a lawyer for 30+ years. She was very professional and willing to go to bat for me, even while I was being a total pain in the neck. Ultimately my Case was settled and I was very happy with the outcome. I would definitely recommend Ashley. – Anonymous
