As a construction law attorney, I'Ashea regularly handles matters related to the building and development of both commercial and residential property. Her experience includes representing owners, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in federal and state courts.

Prior to joining the firm, I'Ashea was previously an Associate/Of Counsel at one of Murfreesboro's preeminent construction law firms where she actively worked on cases involving construction, labor and employment law, and business law.

I'Ashea is committed to building a better future for her community through advocacy and the promotion of equal justice. She spearheaded the first-ever expungement clinic for Rutherford County and is currently planning future clinics with community partners. She is also active in the expungement clinics regularly held in Davidson County. I'Ashea was recently honored by the Tennessee Supreme Court as an Attorney for Justice for her pro bono service.

I'Ashea lives in Murfreesboro with her husband and their three children. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties and also serves on the Board for the Tennessee Bar Association Young Lawyers Division.
