Hi, I’m Ashley.

Law can be complicated. I want to help you resolve your legal disputes.

I like to help people and businesses find simple and practical ways to help people solve their problems. That means I will take the time to learn about you or your business, and figure out what I can do to best help you and your unique situation. Sometimes, that means thinking outside the box to find creative solutions.

I am a mediator. That means I help parties with conflicts resolve their issues in a collaborative way. I think taking ownership of a settlement and being a part of it is something that helps all parties to a dispute move forward.

Being a part of my community is important to me. I am involved in the Canadian Bar Association's BC branch, in its Civil Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Sections. I am also on the Women Lawyers' Committee of the Trial Lawyers Association of BC. I am listed as a mediator on the Civil Roster of Mediate BC, and am part of the new quarantine mediation pilot program. I also volunteer my time with great organizations like Access Pro Bono, and take the time to mentor new lawyers and mediators whenever I get the chance.

Outside of law, I enjoy theatre, travel, cooking, wine, photography, skiing, and everything this great province of ours has to offer.
