Gentry Locke is pleased to announce that Ashley W. Winsky has joined the firm’s Richmond office as a partner in the Transportation, Insurance, Plaintiff Personal Injury, and Civil Litigation practices. Ashley will expand the Richmond office’s already significant litigation practice.
“We are happy to welcome Ashley to our Richmond office,” said Gentry Locke Managing Partner Monica T. Monday. “Ashley is an experienced litigator. With her contagious energy and knowledge of the trucking industry, she is a wonderful addition to our growing presence in Richmond.”
Ashley brings nearly a decade of experience in defending motor carriers, railroads, amusement parks, bus companies, product manufacturers, and business owners against a wide array of personal injury claims. She has also represented individuals in wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims. Ashley has first-chaired more than a dozen trials to successful verdicts in state and federal court, before both judge and jury. She has argued numerous pretrial motions, which have served to short-circuit protracted litigation.
Ashley earned her J.D. from the Antonin Scalia Law School – George Mason University and her B.A. summa cum laude from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. She is an active member of the Transportation Lawyers Association and the American Trucking Association.
