BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE
Ashley was born and raised in Homer, Georgia. She is a “double dawg” with both undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia. Ashley graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology and a B.S. in Criminal Justice and went on to earn her Juris Doctorate in 2010. At UGA Law, Ashley was an articles editor for the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law and an Honor Court Justice. She has practiced in state courts and federal courts in Georgia since her admission to the bar. Ashley is a currently member of the State Bar of Georgia and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. She was named a Georgia Rising Star by Super Lawyers and Atlanta Magazine for five years in a row. Only 2.5% of all lawyers in Georgia are selected as Rising Stars.
Prior to joining Schneider Hammers, Ashley spent eight years defending insurance companies and their insureds in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. She worked for a large regional firm and focused solely on defending some of the nation’s largest transportation companies in high stakes litigation. From this experience, Ashley gained important insights into the inner-workings of insurance and transportation companies and how they respond to accidents, analyze claims, and approach trials. Ashley now brings her experience and knowledge to Schneider Hammers to secure the best results for individuals and families who have been affected by the carelessness of others.
