“As a lawyer, I am often a buffer between pain and reasonableness. When I have the opportunity to alleviate someone’s worries, to relieve the stress in life by explaining the basics of the law, I have done what I have been called to do.”
Ashley Leo has a deep and powerful passion for Family Law that stems from picking people up from their lowest point. Her desire to help others has driven her towards her position as a family law attorney and towards Sterling Hughes.
