About Ashlee Wachtel

Ashlee Wachtel is an associate in our family law team.

Ashlee grew up in South Australia’s Riverland. From an early age, Ashlee recalls being drawn to a career in law, motivated by a willingness to help people, and a strong sense of justice in all things.

Ashlee studied law at the University of Adelaide and was admitted to practice in June 2015.

After graduating, Ashlee worked as an Associate to a Judge in the Federal Circuit Court in Melbourne. This involved working closely with lawyers on both sides and self-represented parties. This experience provided Ashlee with an opportunity to see issues from the client’s perspective. The opportunity to learn from a Judge also gave Ashlee a unique learning experience which she has been able to carry through to her practice of family law of Andersons.

Ashlee joined Andersons in October 2016.
