Elizabeth A. Ashton


Elizabeth is an experienced attorney with expertise in divorce and family law.  Prior to practicing family law, she was an Assistant Attorney General at the Office of the New Mexico Attorney General where she honed her skills in communicating arguments effectively to obtain positive outcomes for her clients. She understands that cases involving families are unique—clients and families are struggling with extremely stressful and emotional situations while trying to understand and work through the legal system. This requires a unique approach focused on not only on strategic planning and aggressive representation as needed; Elizabeth is also a sensitive, compassionate, client-centric advocate who helps clients navigate the complexities of the legal system.

Elizabeth earned her BBA in Management from the University of Oklahoma, her Juris Doctor from Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and is a member of the NM State Bar Family Law Section.

In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, tennis, and spending time with her family and friends.
