Ashley W. Edwards

Bringing a decade of experience to Walzer, Melcher & Yoda LLP, Ashley is a seasoned trial attorney who draws upon her expertise to protect her clients in complex divorce matters so they can move forward with their lives. Ashley has extensive experience in high-conflict custody cases including relocation (move-away) cases, complicated asset dissolution cases, marital settlement agreements, and premarital agreements. Ashley represents a range of clients including entrepreneurs and business owners, technology innovators, individuals in the entertainment industries, or their spouses.

In addition, a significant portion of Ashley’s work has dealt with post-judgment litigation surrounding the interpretation of marital settlement agreements modifying support and custody judgments.

In 2022, 2023, and 2024, Los Angeles Magazine recognized Ashley as a Southern California “Rising Star” top family law attorney, an honor reserved for lawyers under the age of forty who exhibit excellence in practice.

Ashley has presented lectures on child custody issues, evidentiary issues at trial, and the preparation and enforceability of marital settlement agreements. She has also provided trainings for family law paralegals.

Ashley serves on the Board of Directors for Levitt Quinn Family Law Center, a nonprofit family law center providing family law legal services for low-income families throughout Los Angeles County.

Ashley also strives to mentor others and help strengthen the caliber of attorneys in the field of family law. In addition to mentoring the attorneys in her own firm, Ashley is a mentor and member of the Young Alumni Committee of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law’s Board of Governors.

Ashley is a mother and enjoys traveling with her family, game nights, college football, and, recently, learning to play tennis.

Ashley received her law degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, where she served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Pittsburgh Journal of Technology Law and Policy and the President of the Student Bar Association. Ashley received multiple honors in recognition of her leadership and service, including for her work as an instructor for the Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project, where she taught constitutional law and civil rights courses.
