A lifelong Virginian, Ashli comes to us from Crook & Pack, a general litigation firm located in Smithfield, Virginia. Ashli brings to the firm a great deal of experience in Suffolk, Smithfield, Isle of Wight, Newport News, Hampton, and York County. Having grown up in Suffolk and spent the majority of her post-law school life living in Smithfield, she has a familiarity with the courts and the judges in that area that can’t be beat.
Ashli received her undergraduate education at East Carolina University, and attended law school at Widener College of Law in Delaware. At the time, she says she was hoping to eventually practice corporate law, but then realized she absolutely hated it! She returned back home after law school, to the practice where she originally worked as a paralegal, and discovered her love of family law cases—divorce, custody, protective orders, adoptions, and more.
A child of divorce, Ashli understands the unique circumstances involved in family law cases, and brings a compassionate understanding to issues specific to women only in divorce and custody cases.
Ashli married her high school sweetheart (though she insists isn’t that romantic, even though we disagree), Brian, a lifelong Smithfield native. Brian is a co-owner of Smithfield Station, along with his brother, another prominent local business. Together, Ashli and Brian have four kids (two of the two-legged kind and two of the four-legged kind); a daughter named Lucy, a son named Turner, and two Labrador Retrievers, Sam and Abigail.
Aside from her family, Ashli’s great love is the outdoors, where she enjoys boating, paddleboarding, and spending time at the beach. She’s also incredibly athletic (and crazy competitive), and played basketball, volleyball and track in high school, and even continued to play volleyball on into her college years. These days, though, Ashli spends her time managing her active family, and you’re likely to find her shuttling kids from t-ball to soccer and piano lessons. Ashli also loves sushi, the color pink (who doesn’t?), Redskins football, and beating her husband in cornhole tournaments.
Though we can’t guarantee results, and every case is different, we’ve had some pretty happy clients over the years!
Best Plan of Action
Ashli told me the best plan of action and helped me understand the process. This was a very valuable use of my time. She did exactly what she said she would, and in 30 minutes. I have already retained her!
I thought Ashli was amazing.
I thought Ashli was amazing. I have met with many attorneys because I wanted someone that will fight for my children as if they were their own children to save them from abuse and molestation. I saw that in her…she presented herself very well. She was very eager to get to work.
Ashli understands my unique situation
Ashli is intelligent and I didn’t feel like she was irritated that I was there. She understands my unique situation, this was a very valuable use of my time.
Amazing advice for next steps
Ashli was nice, kind, and she sympathized with my situation. Just the initial visit makes me want to recommend anyone to this law firm. Very understanding and listens intently but also gives amazing advice for the next steps to take so the process goes faster.
Same Day Appointment
I had with me most of the paperwork to get the divorce reply to his contested divorce started, but had not organized it at all. Ms Pack was patient with her questions and was able to find the information she needed to file the response. She took my appointment the same day and has been very responsive to my questions. She was kind and gentle to me in my emotional state and was very knowledgeable about the kind of divorce proceedings that I could be facing.
