Her passion for fighting for those who need support led her to begin her own practice
Jacksonville criminal defense lawyer Ashley Goggins is driven by a desire to defend people in her hometown, who are facing criminal charges, have been hurt by the negligence of others or those battling a family law matter.
Ashley has valuable experience defending cases on behalf of clients throughout Duval county and surrounding areas. She is particularly passionate about working with the wrongly accused and those who are seeking protection in family law matters.
She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida, and studied law in Tampa at Stetson University College of Law. After law school and prior to opening her own defense practice, Ashley worked as an assistant public defender in Duval County, Florida. She focused on those accused of crimes and gained experience with jury trials, bench trials, negotiating plea agreements, and arguing motions in criminal cases.
Her passion for fighting for those who need support led her to begin her own practice.
When Ashley decided to open her own law practice, she put the skills she acquired in law school and her professional career to work for regular people who encounter legal troubles and need the help of a skilled and experienced attorney.
As an attorney, she takes pride in providing excellent communication and service to each client who comes to her for help. She also relishes the challenges of taking a case to trial and advocating zealously for clients.
When she isn’t working in her law practice, Ashley enjoys traveling, networking and spending time with family, including her son and puppy. She is also active within her church and community.
