There's nothing quite as terrifying as feeling trapped by the legal system. Ansley's journey into criminal defense began when she faced her own bewildering encounter with the law.
One sunny Mother's Day afternoon, while driving to see her parents, Ansley and her husband were pulled over, and he was suddenly handcuffed. Despite being an attorney with connections in law enforcement, Ansley couldn't find out why her husband was arrested. Thankfully, her mentor, Erin Gerstenzang, stepped in to help, and they managed to resolve the mistake and free him. However, the feeling of powerlessness lingered.
Determined to help others regain their power in a system designed to strip it away, Ansley now dedicates herself to resolving legal issues for her clients. By ensuring they understand each step of the process, she gives them back their autonomy and control.
