Ashley NormanArkansas Attorney
Ashley went into college having never given much thought to a career in law. However, after taking an American History class taught only through U.S. Supreme Court cases, she found herself fascinated by the impact that the court system has on citizens’ everyday lives – from the founding of the country until today. From that point on, she was hooked and knew she wanted to pursue a career in law.
When Ashley went into law school, she didn’t know what to expect, and, actually, didn’t know a single lawyer. It was hard but she kept at it, and it was rewarding to have her hard work pay off, by graduating fifth in her class.
What Ashley enjoys most about practicing law is the feeling of having actually helped her clients. “It’s good to see their relief when I am able to carry a little bit of their burden so they can focus on healing and trying move on with their lives.”
Ashley married her husband, James, in 2009 and they currently live in Bella Vista, AR, with their two daughters.
