I was so impressed with Ms Brooke! She is a very excellent litigator, her skill and experience in the courtroom just shine. I am also so impressed with Nina's work and dedication, all of the late and early calls, and the way you distilled the information to the most effective form was so impressive! The best thing was having Nina and Matt, as well as Brooke attend the hearing. I can't tell you how much it meant to have you there, I was so nervous and heartbroken, I want you to know how much I appreciated that. Thanks to all of you from the bottom of my heart. I wish we could have negotiated a settlement instead of court, but I know that had much more to do with the abusive, aggressive agenda of the other parties than our collective efforts. I will absolutely rely on your advice and representation in any future matters. Many thanks from my family and myself.

They didn’t do anything I asked them to do and charged me for information I provided myself. My ex and I finally came to an agreement on our own after being drug through court every week to discuss nothing that matter to either of us. Told me it would be only another $600 to draw up the parenting plan we came up with and file it. Then later tried to charge me another $500. Hard to get ahold. Not worth it.

I was recently a client of theirs I Paid them over $3000 just to get familiar with a case once they became familiar with the case they requested more money which I understand and I paid, They went to court once for me! After that court hearing day told me I owe them $14,000.00! The paralegal I had was a joke she was rude unpolite and not professional at all. I would not use this law office!

I went to Ashby Law to have them help me with my sticky divorce/child custody case. Their advice was very sound & trustworthy. They helped me to get through some difficult times. Case has been going very smoothly thanks to their calmness & professionalism that they portray & use unlike some attorneys that use pettiness & name calling as their professionalism.

Do not use.
They use aggressive sales bait and switch tactics. Sales gives you and estimate to retain, and means nothing after they "review" your case and double the estimate in their "Strategic case plan". Which turns out to be a total joke that they do not adhere to. Attorney was late and unprepared to the very first hearing. Over charged and doubled the original cost estimate twice over and over again. Did not stick to or come close close to providing the services spelled out in thier on "strategic case plan". Had to terminate services.
Are the "Used Car Salesmen" of the legal word.

Review by Cavenly Kofstra1 year ago
everyone was very caring. the only thing I would change is this was my first time getting a lawyer. I wish I was made more aware of how fast the cost adds up.
Review by RGarland1 year ago
I got poor advice from Zach.....he hurried me into a settlement that other attorneys said was nuts. He is not an aggressive advocate for his client, juist wanting to get case closed. Very disappointed. Look elsewhere is my strong advice!
Review by Niklaz Zhkov1 year ago
Terrible law firm. My first lawyer skipped one court appearance then later I was informed that he was going to miss another court appearance which was the most important court date on my divorce. The night before that court date I find out that my lawyer was fired and my case was assigned to a new lawyer who knew NOTHING about my case. The next day, my unprepared, new attorney tried to piece together a showing and the judge decided for my ex in every insurance that was brought up. My new lawyer was late to every court appearance I had. Before my divorce was completely settled I find out that my "new" lawyer was leaving the firm and I was assigned yet another lawyer. Horrible representation and they charge you for EVERYTHING. Overcharge in my opinion. When lawyers are in the firm for a period of time their rates go up. So if you have a lawyer working "for" you no matter how long they have been on your case and their "employment duration time" comes up the amount your lawyer charges you is increased. I would never, EVER recommend this firm to anyone.
Review by Benjamin Sanchez Corthals1 year ago
We paid over 5,000 to this office an all we got were promises. We were trying to get some sort of rights over my nephew An it cost us over 5,000 for just one court , where the judge denied our case an where a paralegal was paid more than the lawyer himself.
Review by Ntg1 year ago
Ashby Law was able to help me through a very contentious divorce that dragged on for a very long time. At each step along the way, every time the other party escalated unnecessarily, my attorney gave me sound advice and helped me through the process. The paralegal who was on my case was also very responsive and knowledgable. Thank you for your help through this tough process
Review by Thanunda1 year ago
Very poor communication. I would ask several questions in emails, and only get answers to some of those questions. I would have to email again, or call to have the other questions answered.
At such a high price point, you would expect them to be on top of their clients.

I had a bad experience with this law firm. When I originally called to set up a consultation, I asked them if they had a lawyer who was licensed in BOTH Oregon amd Washington because I knew beforehand that I would need a lawyer who was licensed in both states. I was told that that they did have a lawyer who was, so I set up a consultation time. When my consultation time came I payed the $100 dollar fee and had my consult with a gal who also assured me they had a lawyer licensed in both states and that they could help me. So I think "wonderful! This is great!" So they tell me that I need to pay a 3000 retainer fee and set up a meeting in person with the lawyer. So I payed the retainer fee and scheduled my first meeting.
When I go to the meeting I was met with the lawyer as well as another gal who was shadowing my lawyer. Said lawyer asks me about my situation and after I explain it again she proceeds to say: "now for your case it looks like you are going to need a lawyer who is licensed in both Oregon and Washington,. We do not have lawyers licensed in Oregon, but once you get your case moved here we can certainly help you." I was pretty upset and explained that I had specifically (several times) asked and requested for a lawyer licensed in both states because I already knew that's what I needed!! Than! On top of that they tried to give me back my retainer less the 300 for the lawyer consult! In the end I did receive my full retainer fee back but not the 100 first consult. But the hassle and time that was waisted was ridiculous and unnecessary! I will not be recommending them!

Ashby Law was Great! 5 Stars! Way better than Trustpilot. I give THEM 1/2 star.

Unless you want your money going down the drain, go somewhere else. Good luck ever trying to talk to your attorney, you always get voicemails, and no email response. Numerous lies from the staff is why I left.
Review by CotswoldDar1 year ago
My case was pawned off three times throughout my custody case. The first lawyer merely taking it till he left the firm, the next was a "lawyer" who come to find out didn't/hadn't completed his board/certification but was merely working under Scott Ashby's certification. Then pawned to another later after the previous one got his board certification & left the firm. In which the final lawyer had no clue as to what she was doing, Sarah, & merely tried settling on anything the opposing party ever offered. Throughout the whole case however, the only thing that was consistent was the firm nitpickingly charging me for any & every little thing that they did/didn't do, even when 70% of the work they'd do was to fix their previous mistakes. I do not recommend at all. I spent thousands of dollars for literally almost nothing. Look around at other firms, & get a better lawyer(s) for your time & money. Ashby Law Firm is a horrendous joke.

The reason that Ashby Law four stars was Paralegal Rose. She did her best to keep us informed on problems, roadblock and progress. However, the pace at which our case was handled was slower than we feel it should have been. At times it felt that attorneys were using our case to learn how to do cases similar to ours.
Review by Doniselli1 year ago
I think this would be a fine law firm for parties that are engaged in a amicable divorce. My case was more aggressive and this firm was either not able, or was unwilling to fight.
Review by Macario Blatnik1 year ago
They are very nice and very friendly but other than that that's it they will nickel-and-dime you for every little thing that they can. If there is a misunderstanding or a mistake they will fix it at your expense I gave them their down payment and within less than two weeks they damn near blew it and the only thing that was done was paperwork. unless you're made of money I wouldn't go through this Law Firm they even try to Bill me when I ended my case through them when they sent me a letter telling me they were done with my case they tried to charge me more
Review by Yinuo1 year ago
Overpriced for such a simple case. Lots of typos on documents to be fixed several times.
Review by Bulu1 year ago
Sara has been my attorney for two cases now. The first time through, It was a 5 star exp. I didn't get what I wanted for my parenting plan, but she was good and professional. I don't reflect Sara's rating on a Judges decision.
Second time around has more to do with the lack of communication on her paralegal. I hadn't heard from her for almost 3 weeks. Just not the service I expected the 2nd time through. I was emailed that there was an attempt to call me, but my phone went strait to voicemail. I would expect a voicemail if that were the case.

Matt just did what the prosecuting attorney wanted, he did not understand how CPS works and their motives.
