A bit more about the founder

Ashley is a Brooklyn, NY native, licensed to practice law in New York. She landed her dream job working at a boutique business law firm in New York. Although she was in love with the small law firm intellectual challenges, the entrepreneurial bug bit her and things changed. Life started feeling a bit beige and she longed for more color and art. So she took a leap of faith, and Unorthodox Legal was born.

Fast forward to today: Ashley combines her passion for law and entrepreneurship to help small businesses and entrepreneurs have a proper legal foundation and streamline their business. She is fortunate to have worked with entrepreneurs across various industries: content creators, artists, tech start-ups, online educators, bloggers, designers, coaches, photographers, and so many more.
