Having been around for her own parents’ divorce, Ashli understands uniquely the circumstances involved in family law cases, and brings the necessary experience, empathy, and understanding to her practice.
A lifelong Virginian, Ashli joined our team after practicing with 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.
Ashli married her high school sweetheart, Brian, a lifelong Smithfield native. Brian is a co-owner of Smithfield Station, the Surry Seafood Company, and 37 North, which is currently in development on Fort Monroe.
Together, Ashli and Brian have two kids, Turner and Lucy, and two Labrador retrievers, Lucky (called, for whatever reason, Bobo), and Wilbur. Ashli jokes that, at this point, her hobbies are actually her kids’ hobbies. Lucy, a preteen, is super crafty and loves her Cricut. Turner, on the other hand, is an athlete who loves baseball, basketball, and football.
For her part, Ashli loves the outdoors, but especially boating, paddleboarding, the beach and skiing, her newest interest.
Ashli spends much of 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, skiing, Commanders 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!
Ashli helped me see that I am done!
Ashli was just really attentive and got my brain considering options I hadn’t before. Now I’m not going to wait two years. She didn’t gasp at anything, but she allowed me to realize how over his mistreatment I really am. Also, I didn’t feel pressured to do anything. I was planning on waiting 2 years to get out of this horrible”marriage,” turns out I’m done now. I highly recommend this firm.
All of my questions were answered by Ashli
Ashli listened to me, made me feel comfortable, and provided straightforward answers and expectations. I highly recommend her as a family law attorney.

Ashli listened to everything I had to say
Ashli listened to everything I had to say. I think at some parts I was maybe talking too much. However, she just let me talk and gave me great advice. I did not feel as if I was rushed. She was confident in what she could do for my case and I believe she will be able to get me the important things I’m worried about. She truly cared and was very confident. I feel as though she will fight for myself and my child in the courtroom. She also was being realistic in what I should expect. I appreciated that about her because she did not want me to have false hope. I’m excited to finally have an Attorney that cares and is confident. She is not going to give me false hope. Thus, I know when she says she’s going to get something done, it’s the truth!

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.
