On Top of Everything
Ashley Stitzer goes to court well organized with all of the documents and facts at her fingertips making her points to the court meaningful and on target. Her support staff also helped to create a well prepared case. She anticipates the questions to be asked and prepares her client appropriately. Being as this was our first time being exposed to family court, we were very nervous, but Ashley put us at ease. I highly recommend Ashley for Family court cases, I will use her services again if the situation arises.

Family Law – Divorce
Ashley Stitzer was so tremendously helpful and supportive through my divorce process. She helped drive the overall process, was excellent from both a legal and procedural standpoint and was always readily available. Even as stress mounted and there was the potential to end up in a drug out battle, Ashley was always a calming voice, providing sound strategies and ultimately helping me get to a very great place. My settlement was amazingly fair and Ashely delivered performance above my expectations.
