Fayetteville Divorce Attorney Ashley Nechay | Cordell & Cordell

Ashley Nechay

Senior Litigation Attorney

Fayetteville divorce attorney Ashley NechayFayetteville divorce attorney Ashley Nechay decided she wanted to rejoin the family law world because she missed the satisfaction of knowing she did everything she could to help a client achieve a resolution in their case that fit their goals.

“One trait that I have that helps me in my practice of law is my ability to be relatable and not just a ‘stiff attorney in a suit,’” Ms. Nechay said. “That makes my clients comfortable with me so that we start the case with a good foundation of trust and comfort, knowing they can talk to me about anything they need.”

While Ms. Nechay is empathetic as her client goes through one of life’s most challenging transitions, she can also show a sharper edge when necessary.

“The one thing that I think is most important for a client to know when they leave our first meeting is that they know they have an attorney who is approachable and thorough, but will fight hard in court,” she said. “I can be tough and relentless when the situation calls for it.”
