Local, Compassionate, and committed to providing clients value

 

Caitlyn Ashley is a highly skilled Texas estate planning and probate attorney. She is also the principal owner of Caitlyn Ashley Law in Denton, Texas. She graduated as a Valedictorian from Guyer High School and completed her undergrad at the University of Texas in Austin before earning her Juris Doctor degree from Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth. She is used to managing caseloads efficiently and with great care and has extensive courtroom experience representing hundreds of clients in a variety of complex cases ranging from probate issues to important decisions over guardianship.

 

That’s the professional, buttoned-up version of her lawyer profile. At her heart, Caitlyn is a small-town girl whose Denton roots go back five generations. She is proud to serve the community she loves so deeply, and her own tragic experiences with losing her father when she was a teenager make her uniquely qualified to shield clients from having to navigate the legal complexities of estate planning and probate alone. This includes working with individuals and families who may or may not have a will, establishing complex trusts, being there to answer questions and offer sound advice, and tailoring strategies to fit each family’s unique needs. Bottom line, Caitlyn has been in your shoes and knows first-hand how emotional and complex things have become. Having someone like that in your corner is essential as you move forward.

 

A Dream Becoming Reality

 

Caitlyn has dreamed of being a lawyer for as long as she can remember. In fact, she initially saw herself becoming a prosecutor and eventually working in the district attorney’s office. After her father died suddenly, she developed a strong passion for helping individuals and families have a plan in place to protect themselves and their families from anything life throws their way. During her time at Texas A&M University School of Law, she was part of the famed Innocence Project, an organization that helps exonerate wrongfully convicted individuals. She also served as Director of Communications for State Representative Poncho Nevarez and as an extern for the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office. Upon graduation, she worked as a lead probate attorney at Leigh Hilton, PLLC, in Denton for nearly three years. In March 2021, she ventured out on her own — carving a new path for an already successful career.

 

In her free time, Caitlyn enjoys traveling, spending time outdoors, and being with her dog, Sophie. She is also constantly finding ways to give back to her community. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Cross Timbers and has volunteered her time with various organizations, including Habitat for Humanity. She also fosters Boston Terriers, getting them healthy and happy before finding them a forever home. She has successfully found homes for three dogs already and looks forward to helping many more.
