Ashlyn has always wanted to make a difference. Little did she know that her aspirations of being a lobbyist would develop into a passion for veteran’s issues. A self-starter with a heart of gold, Ashlyn met her husband just as he was returning from his first tour of duty in Iraq. Quickly realizing there was a lack of services for families of veterans who had returned from war, she and her husband learned through trial and error how to manage the number of issues veterans and their families face. After graduating from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science, Ashlyn worked for local non-profits with the goal of learning how to identify, establish, and fill the needs of veterans and their families who were struggling with some of the same issues her family had faced.
Through her work with the non-profit entities, Ashlyn learned that there is a constant need for legal expertise to address the issues that matter in people’s lives. Ashlyn went on to complete her law degree at the University of Kansas School of Law and put her year off between schools to good use. She served as co-founder and President of the Military Law Society at KU Law School, an organization established to create a Veterans Legal Aid Clinic and connecting law students with an opportunity to use their developing skills to give back to local veterans.
Ashlyn joined Martin Pringle in 2015 after spending two years clerking for the firm. She focuses her practice on employment law, municipal law, business law, and civil and commercial litigation matters. Ashlyn is a member of the Kansas Association of Defense Counsel, the Wichita Women Attorneys Association, the Kansas and Wichita Bar Associations, and the Young Professionals of Wichita.
