Family Law attorney, Ashley B. Rahaman, has been an active member of the Family Law Community in Arizona. Since 2015, She has served on the Board of Directors for the Family Law Section of the Maricopa County Bar Association. She was elected by her fellow board members to serve as Chair of the Board in 2017, and will again serve as the Chair this year, 2020. The Family Law Section is responsible for numerous continuing legal education seminars throughout the year, as well as planning two social events through the year to connect attorneys and the family bench, and publication of a quarterly newsletter.
This year, Ashley has also returned to volunteer pro bono legal services to the Volunteer Lawyers Program of Community Legal Services. Community Legal Services (CLS) is dedicated to providing legal assistance, advice or representation, self-help materials and legal education so people can know their rights. We focus on helping survivors of domestic violence; assisting victims of consumer fraud and abuse, protecting tenants from unlawful/unfair practices by landlords, foreclosures, legal problems affecting agricultural workers, wage claims and other employment matters, and federal and state programs affecting peoples’ health and economic stability. Ashley is honored to offer her time and legal knowledge to ensure legal representation to the most vulnerable in Maricopa County.
As the new year (and arguably the new decade) begins we encourage our colleagues, friends, and families to look for ways to give back and encourage service in their communities.
