Ashlee has practiced with Williams Litigation Lawyers LLP since obtaining her law degree in 2010.  

Her practice focuses on insurance law, professional liability defence, personal injury litigation and commercial litigation. However, Ashlee is able to roll up her sleeves and tackle almost any civil litigation case.

Ashlee has earned a reputation as a committed and vigorous advocate on behalf of her clients.   Ashlee has successfully represented clients in multiple levels of court, including the Superior Court of Justice, Divisional Court, Ontario Court of Appeal, Landlord and Tenant Board, the Human Rights Tribunal, the CPP Disability Review Tribunal, the Licence Appeal Tribunal and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario.

While Ashlee treats each case as if it could someday go to trial, she is always looking for the most efficient and cost-effective resolution.  Ashlee has skillfully negotiated an early resolution to hundreds of cases, acting for both Plaintiffs and Defendants.   In her defence work, Ashlee has stopped several lawsuits in their tracks by bringing summary judgment motions and motions to strike before examinations for discovery.  Ashlee has successfully taken cases to trial when necessary, and has acted as lead counsel and co-counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants.

Ashlee was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario.   After practicing for a number of years in Ottawa, Ashlee is pleased to be returning to her hometown to continue her practice in  the Northern Ontario office of Williams Litigation Lawyers which proudly serves North Bay, Sudbury, Sault St. Marie, Timmins, Cochrane, New Liskeard, Pembroke, and all the surrounding communities.

In her spare time, Ashlee enjoys spending time with her family.  She is an avid long distance runner who enjoys the outdoors.
