Russell admires initiative. So when our Executive Assistant Ashley Garza first called our office looking for a job with a family-oriented law firm, his interest was piqued!
“I called her back and told her we’re always looking to add superstars to our team. Then, I asked what she was interested in doing,” he remembers.
It turns out Ashley was hoping for a job as an executive assistant and project manager, which is exactly what we needed! Her background included time spent as a paralegal and case manager, working in a variety of legal niches, including personal injury, family law, criminal law, and immigration.
Ashley Joins the Dallas Personal Injury Team
Russell brought her on board right away, and she put her eight years of personal injury law experience to work. Today, Ashley also helps manage our projects and pitches in with marketing and network building.
“I’m glad I chose to be part of a team that is dedicated to bettering the lives of their clients. You can tell how much respect the team has for each other,” Ashley says.
The feeling is mutual!
“We always try to play to people’s strengths and put the right person in the right seat, and adding Ashley has been a huge momentum boost for us to finish 2021 strong,” Russell says.
Outside of Work, It’s All About Family for Ashley
When Ashley isn’t hard at work helping our clients, she’s busy being a mom.
“My life revolves around my two kids — my son, Ashton, and my daughter, Leah. We enjoy attending church on Sundays and learning about God. If we’re not at a movie theater, you can find us outdoors! We really enjoy family time at lakes, trails, and parks,” Ashley says.
Like the rest of our team, Ashley also loves to read in her free time. She’s currently working her way through Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin.
