Meet Ash.

This firm is centered around you and your story.

As the daughter of a prominent California trial lawyer, who has argued four cases before the Supreme Court of the United States, Ashley Watkins grew up knowing she wanted to tell a client’s story and secure the justice they deserved, even if it required going before the highest court in the country.

As a result, Ashley began her career at a civil defense firm like her father’s, but within her first year she realized the dirty secret of insurance companies β€” they do not want to pay anyone. Not only do insurance companies avoid paying their own lawyers when possible, but they do everything in their power to deny legitimately injured people the settlements they deserve.

This realization led Ashley to work with Sam. He had built a premier personal injury firm in Southern California that was dedicated to its clients β€” ensuring each client received the settlement they deserved from the insurance companies.

Together they built Sam & Ash to provide greater opportunities for the people in Nevada. This firm is centered around you and your story, with the solitary focus of providing better care and settlements than any firm in the state.

" Ashley’s guidance proved invaluable. She helped resolve my matter immediately without the need for protracted litigation. It is very clear that Ashley is and was looking out for my best interest, and was not simply looking for a new case. "
