Rebecca S. Ashbaugh

Partner

I believe in consistently providing superior, personal, and responsive service. My desire is to work closely with clients in order to thoroughly understand their objectives and goals so that I can help develop creative strategies to efficiently solve their problems and prevent additional problems from arising in the future.

My role is to try to alleviate the burden and stress that comes with litigation in order to make it easier for my clients to focus on their business and what is important to them. I have an ability to take very complex issues and break them down into simple, relevant pieces of the puzzle. I enjoy using my skills to work with individuals and companies to develop successful strategies that are unique to that client’s wants and goals.

My motivation comes from a desire to provide excellent, efficient service that allows clients to focus less on disputes and more on aspirations.

I have successfully represented on a broad range of clients in commercial litigation disputes, including condominium homeowners’ associations, contractors, business owners, and individuals. The disputes have included breach of contract claims, promissory notes and personal guarantees, construction defect claims, insurance recovery, and intellectual property protection.
