Austin divorce attorney Ashleigh Bearden

Austin divorce attorney Ashleigh Bearden went to law school because she wanted a career that allowed her to help people. In family law, she sees an opportunity to help people through some of the most stressful times in their lives.

“We can not only mitigate the damage of divorce and contentious custody battles, but help people build the lives and families they want and return to doing things that are important to them,” Ms. Bearden said.

Ms. Bearden is a patient listener and possesses a great deal of empathy. She understands how important it is to keep her clients in the loop about what is going on because she believes every case is a total team effort.

“Our attorneys, paralegals, support staff, and most importantly, you, will have to work together to get your case to the finish line,” Ms. Bearden sand. “Help us help you. That said, divorce and custody are incredibly stressful issues for people whose lives they affect. Find someone – a friend, a family member, a professional – who you can talk to through the process not only so that you can be an effective part of the team but remain the dependable anchor you are to your loved ones.”
