Ashley is a sensible, caring and compassionate lawyer. Reason, Respect and Grace are the tenets that guide her in life and her legal practice. She knows that often times, people are seeking answers during stressful times—so she makes sure her clients feel listened to and most of all, informed. Because she knows that understanding your situation and having confidence in that situation can help you sleep at night knowing you’ve got someone on your side.


Ashley graduated Magna Cum Laude from Miami University with a BS in German Education and received her JD from Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2006. Her areas of practice include family law, estate planning, probate, personal injury, business consulting and litigation, and civil litigation—with an emphasis in Mediation and
Family Law.


Ashley is involved in her community through her service on the Board of Directors for the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati and avidly volunteers at her sons' school.


Ever the optimist, she believes there’s a silver lining to every situation and when she’s not in the office, she’s with her husband and 2 boys soaking up the sun on a beach somewhere or roaming the local flea markets and antique shops looking for
her next restoration project. She’s also a fine poet. Just ask her!


Reasonable, thorough, compassionate, old-school litigator with 30 plus years in the Bar. His practice areas are wide ranging with an emphasis in economic development. He has attended the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and is recognized as a Mediator by the Kentucky Administrative Office of Courts. His mediation experience includes family law, personal injury, civil litigation, and real estate cases.


Kurt sings the fight song of his Alma Mater, St. Xavier High School, to anyone who will listen. He worked his way through college at Xavier University and Thomas More College at various local breweries—and while he wears his class ring from the University of Louisville's Brandeis College of Law, he cheers for the Big Blue Wildcats.


Giving back to the community is also important. Kurt is an active member of Holy Cross Immaculata Church. He has held advisory positions with the Wood Hudson Cancer Research Foundation, the National Corvette Restorers Association and the Cincinnati-Munich Sister Cities Association. (He can also sprechen Deutsch like a boss.)


When Kurt isn't in the office, he can be seen tooling around town with his wife of nearly fifty years in his Corvette, hitting up local hardware and paint stores, varnishing his wooden boat, tending to his beloved Ford Woody, adding on to the Gehry inspired tree-house that he built for his five grandsons or he could be "down island" scrubbing decks and chatting up the locals.
