Ashley Waye is the founding lawyer of Waye Law, a family law boutique in Toronto. With years of experience in all areas of family law, she assists clients with issues relating to custody, access, child and spousal support, mobility, property division and child protection matters. She is a certified collaborative practitioner as well as a skilled litigator who is prepared to fearlessly represent clients in court when necessary.

Ashley is a feminist who addresses the problem of access to justice in her practice by providing Legal Aid services to women who continue to be a marginalized group in our legal system. She is a former owner of a retail business and is fluent in three languages, including English, French and German. She has experience living and studying abroad and is a mother. These experiences give her a broad perspective to draw on when representing her clients.

She is the outgoing Chair of the Women Lawyers Forum. With a record number of nominations for seats on the executive this year, she is proud of the work her section has done to attract such enthusiasm to the WLF. She looks forward to the work the section will continue to do with the passion and dedication that she knows will continue to characterise the women on this executive.
