Ashley Wood has devoted her career to helping all types of families through divorce, custody, parentage, adoption, modifications, protective orders, pre/post nuptial agreements, mediation, and other legal matters. Her commitment to family law comes from her awareness of how emotionally stressful, and often confusing, it can be to face family legal matters. Her goals are to ensure that clients understand their rights and options — and, above all, to take legal worries off their shoulders so they can focus on taking care of themselves and their children.
Ms. Wood has published work in the Utah Journal of Family Law and is proud to have been recognized by her peers among the Legal Elite for family law in Utah for the years 2016 and 2017.
A Utah native, Ms. Wood was admitted to the Utah Bar in 2006, when she began practicing law with Kara Lee Barton. She has also served as a Private Guardian ad Litem since 2012 and volunteers her time with the Court system.
Ms. Wood graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Utah. She then moved to Rhode Island, where she graduated from Roger Williams School of Law in 2005. While attending law school, Ms. Wood completed 40 hours of mediation certification training and was a student attorney at the Community Justice and Legal Assistance Clinic at the Feinstein Institute for Legal Services.
