Ashley Jones, Cleveland Criminal Defense Attorney
Ashley L. Jones is a graduate of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law where she focused her classes and activities on criminal law. Ms. Jones took criminal law during her first year of law school and from that moment on, she knew that criminal law was her calling, the reason she had gone to law school, her way to help people. Ms. Jones continued to take criminal law classes, soaking up as much knowledge as she could, and also was a criminal law teaching assistant for two years.
Ms. Jones was a law clerk in two criminal defense law firms during her time in law school, and that exposure taught her the practical experience of running a law firm. But Ms. Jones wanted to do everything she could to learn the art of being a trial lawyer, so she sought a spot on Cleveland Marshall’s Competition Mock Trial Team, gaining a spot and becoming a two year veteran member. During these two years, Ms. Jones traveled in and out of the state of Ohio to present cases to mock juries. Two years of these competitions gave Ms. Jones real life trial skills and knowledge so that when her first case in her own law practice went to trial, she didn’t blink an eye, and judgment was for her client.
Ms. Jones has fully immersed herself in Cleveland’s legal community. Her community involvement includes:
- Past trustee of Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, West Shore Bar Association, and Ohio Women’s Bar Foundation.
- Past Chair of the Solo/Small Firm Section of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
- Currently serving as a trustee of the Cleveland Marshall Law Alumni Association and serving as their incoming Treasurer.
- Current co-chair of the criminal law section of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
- Active member Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
At the end of the day, Ms. Jones is concerned with ensuring that rights are protected and that justice is administered fairly and appropriately.
Ms. Jones prides herself on being available to speak with you personally. She is in your corner, fighting for you every step of the way, and treating you with dignity and integrity along the way. Call today to discuss any legal issues you have.
