About Me

ashleyschuhI am a Certified Family Law Specialist* and have focused solely on family law issues since 2005, when I was admitted to the California bar. I went to law school with the intention to help families through this often difficult and challenging process. I continue to represent clients in family law matters and am also a Harvard-certified mediator.

My family law practice is focused on strategizing practical solutions for you and your family, embracing the ideology you are unique and benefit from a thoughtful approach to resolving your particular issues.

I believe in empowering you with knowledge and am an excellent communicator and listener. I am particularly attuned to the emotional aspects of family law issues and the necessity for ongoing and active communication to ensure that your needs and objectives are met. I excel at rapport-building both with clientele and with opposing parties or attorneys, focusing on crafting workable solutions.

I have completed two 40-hour mediation certification programs, most recently at the Harvard Law School Institute on Negotiation. I offer specialized mediation services at our office. If you are interested in resolving your matter amicably and cooperatively, mediation is a process in which you can determine the outcome of your case. I attempt to resolve matters outside of court and before trial or hearing whenever possible. I am also a successful advocate in adversarial proceedings and vehemently promote my clients’ interests through litigation when necessary.

When I’m not working, I am a mother to three kids, wife to a chef and charcuterie maker, an avid reader, a believer in fairness, a collector of vintage sweaters and dresses and a friend with a tender heart.
