Ashley's Background in Family Law
Ms. Irwin has over 20 years of experience working in the legal field; first as a paralegal, and then as an attorney. Her work history has exposed her to many different areas of law including personal injury, criminal defense, and family law.
As a young attorney, Ms. Irwin was appointed by the Court on behalf of children in custody and juvenile actions in which abuse or neglect was alleged. During this time, she realized how much of a need there was for zealous advocates in family law. This has become her main focus, and Ms. Irwin still serves as a Court-appointed Guardian ad Litem, since helping kids is truly where her passion lies.
Ms. Irwin has handled an appeal in the Western District Court of Appeals, including the oral argument which was held at the University of Central Missouri (UCM) in front of more than 100 audience members. Ms. Irwin is an award-winning family law attorney who co-presented “Quicksand! The Perils of Ignoring Estate Planning Implications for Your Divorce Client” at the 2018 and 2020 Missouri Bar Family Law Conference and won a Rising Star award from Super Lawyers in 2022. Mentored by one of the best family law attorneys in Missouri and member of the AAML, Anita Rodarte, Ms. Irwin accredits much of her success to Anita’s mentorship.
Ms. Irwin has successfully tried a personal injury case in front of a jury and won a preliminary hearing for a client charged with felony parental kidnapping, resulting in those criminal charges being dropped. She has represented clients in all aspects of family law matters including adoptions, termination of parental rights, child support, custody modification, guardianship cases, Orders of Protection, and divorces involving corporations, businesses, self-employed individuals, and trusts.
She served as an associate attorney at Leonard Rodarte Siegel LLC and formed Siegel & Irwin, LLC, along with fellow attorney, Kristin Siegel, in 2022. She now serves as a family law attorney and partner at Siegel & Irwin, LLC.
