Ashley commenced pupillage in October 2016 under the supervision of Elizabeth Gooderham where she has gained excellent experience in all types of family law matters, both public and private law proceedings. Ashley has also spent time in the Family division of the High Court, the Magistrates’ and Crown Court with other members of chambers.

Before pupillage, Ashley worked as a County Court Advocate and for the Serious Fraud Office (“SFO”) as an Assistant Investigator. At the SFO, Ashley supported lead investigators in PACE interviews and compiling intelligence on suspects; she took part in the case team’s disclosure process and assisted counsel in proceedings in the High Court. Prior to the BPTC, Ashley was a Civil Servant at Warwickshire Justice Centre working both in the Crown Court and for the Probation Service. Her time has also been spent as an intern at the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre where she worked with lawyers on petitions to the European Court of Human Rights regarding breaches of Article 6 and 8 rights.

Ashley now receives instructions under the supervision of Stuart Yeung in all areas of family law, including both public and private law children proceedings, injunctions under the Family Law Act 1996 and matrimonial finance applications. Ashley also accepts instructions on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service.
