Ashley M. DeMouy, Associate
Associate Ashley DeMouy’s practice focuses on transportation, trucking, and insurance defense. Prior to joining Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett, Ashley spent the first years of her legal career as a Public Defender where she managed a high case load and remained a zealous advocate for her clients. There she honed her litigation skills and tried numerous cases before both judges and juries. Ashley switched to civil litigation and served as a law clerk to the Hon. Ellen M. Hazeur where she was involved in all stages of cases before the Court, including preparation of legal opinions, judgments, and jury selection in various areas of civil practice. Her practice has since been focused on insurance defense, and she has briefed and argued before several State district and appellate courts.
Ashley believes that success comes from the ability to learn, grow, listen, and be humble, yet remain firm. “Lawyers are in the business of service: service to our clients, service to our community, and service to our profession. We can aggressively pursue the interests of our clients and remain cordial. Adversarial does not mean unprofessional.”
Ashley received her Juris Doctor from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law and her Bachelor of Science from Xavier University of Louisiana. In addition to her practice, Ashley has served as an Administrative Law Judge for the Louisiana Workforce Commission, has served as a faculty member of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) where her focus was teaching deposition skills, and has coached several mock trial teams.
Ashley is “Naturally N’Awlins” and has lived here most of her life. She remains active in her community, is a member of several community-based organizations, and is an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sorority, Inc., wherein she volunteers her time involved in community service projects. In her spare time, Ashley enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, and completing DIY projects in her home.
