The DAYL, which restricts membership to attorneys 36 years of age or younger, is dedicated to improving the quality life of young lawyers and serving the Dallas community through public service projects that young lawyers find meaningful.
Ashley has been involved with the DAYL since 2014 when she joined the Law Student Assistance Committee. She was named co-chair of that committee in January 2015 and continues to serve in that capacity. She has helped plan and implement DAYL programs including the Swearing-In Ceremony for new attorneys, a panel discussion on “What to Expect When You’re Expecting . . . Bar Results,” and programs targeting mental health issues.
Upon being elected to the Board of Directors, Ashley commented, “I am very excited to become involved with the DAYL at the leadership level. I look forward to getting to know more members of the DAYL and helping to implement programs that will benefit them.”

She conducts in-depth legal and business development research for all practice groups, analyzing complex federal and state legal issues, as well as performing due diligence research. She also identifies and develops new legal research strategies and resources.
