about ashley

I represent individuals in all types of employment disputes, including informal negotiations, trial in the state and federal courts, arbitrations, appeals, and administrative proceedings before the TWC, EEOC, NLRB and DOL.  Since the day I was licensed to practice law, I have practiced exclusively in the area of employment law, working on behalf of individual employees and entrepreneurs.  I especially enjoy helping employees with pregnancy and medical leave disputes, those who have been saddled with non-compete and other restrictive contracts, and individuals who have been misclassified or denied fair wages.  I would be proud to help you achieve your workplace goals, and "right the ship" if you've been sent off-course.
