I sought help from the Ondrik Larsen team two years ago and recent events have resurfaced the gratitude I have for their support, hence the late review. This was a first time offence for me and truly unintentional, so I was at a complete loss on how to proceed with the situation when my sister got in contact with Ashlee. From the very start, Ashlee and Olinka took great care in guiding me through the process and advising me on the best course of action. They are clearly very knowledgeable and displayed great professionalism throughout the ordeal. They helped me stay calm and in the end, we got the outcome we were hoping for. Although this is quite late, I wanted to express my sincere thanks once again and I would highly recommend Ondrik Larsen to anyone!

A few months ago, I was facing extremely serious charges that had the potential to drastically alter my life. It felt like my entire life and career were on the edge. However, from the very first phone call I had with Ashlee, I felt a profound sense of reassurance, and I knew I was in capable hands. Olinka and Ashlee worked tirelessly on my case to achieve the best possible outcome for me. They explained their cost structure clearly right from our initial conference, and it was quite reasonable. Initially, I had no glimpse of hope during this incredibly challenging phase of my life. Nevertheless, Ashlee and Olinka took the time to understand my personal situation and how these charges would impact both my family and professional career. They factored this into their approach, preparing my case not just with the goal of achieving any possible outcome, but with a determination to achieve the outcome I was hoping for. At first, the possibility of a diversion was almost off the table. However, Ashlee's exceptional negotiation skills and unwavering dedication changed this perspective. Through extensive negotiations and written submissions, she convinced the prosecution to recommend a diversion. Her advocacy didn't stop there – she was also able to persuade the magistrate to grant the diversion after thorough oral and written arguments. Their integrity extended beyond their exceptional work. They managed to wrap up my case in just a few court hearings, saving me from incurring additional legal expenses. This was an outcome I had thought to be incredibly unlikely. I will remain grateful for the rest of my life for the outstanding work and the remarkable outcome that this awesome pair achieved for me. Without a moment's hesitation, I would recommend their legal services to anyone in need. Their integrity, exceptional skills, and genuine passion for their work shine through. I will forever hold this wonderful couple in the highest regard for the amazing impact they have had on my life. I still cannot believe that this case is now over and the result was extraordinary and far beyond my expectations. Thank you Ashlee & Olinka

It is with a light heart and a debt of gratitude that I write this after a seemingly miraculous result achieved only through the dedication and meticulous work done by Ashlee Larson. I knew at the beginning of my legal woes that this journey would be a difficult one and after a year of litigation fraught with personal hardships and uncertainty; I knew I was in good hands. Whenever I felt anxious attending court or unsure about the legal processes, Ashlee’s no nonsense, matter of fact approach helped me gain confidence in a positive outcome, at a time when I wasn’t too sure there would be one. Always at hand to answer any questions, Ashlee worked tirelessly to produce an amazing result that I would forever be grateful for. So if you feel unsure or even apprehensive about finding legal advice, I highly recommend Ashlee Larson of Ondrik Larson Lawyers.

I recently had the privilege of working with Ashlee, and I cannot express enough gratitude for the remarkable results she achieved for my family. After enduring three long and arduous years of an ongoing case, I entered this legal journey with a heavy heart, fully expecting that my husband would face jail time. However, Ashlee's unwavering dedication and extraordinary skills proved that the seemingly impossible was indeed possible. From our very first conversation, Ashlee exuded confidence and reassurance, promising to do everything in her power to steer clear of jail time for my husband. This constant support and encouragement became the rock on which we relied during the mentally and emotionally challenging times we faced. Ashlee went above and beyond the call of duty, displaying a level of commitment and compassion that surpassed all our expectations. Throughout the entire process, Ashlee maintained excellent communication, regularly checking in with updates and ensuring we were always informed. Her ability to keep us in the loop and address our concerns played a crucial role in alleviating our anxieties and instilling hope. We felt like valued clients every step of the way, as Ashlee's dedication extended far beyond the confines of her professional obligations. The outcome that Ashlee achieved was nothing short of incredible. It was a result that surpassed even our wildest dreams. With this immense burden lifted from our shoulders, my family can finally begin to move forward and rebuild our lives. Ashlee's remarkable legal skills and unwavering determination were instrumental in securing this victory, and we will forever be grateful for her tireless efforts. If you find yourself in a seemingly impossible situation, I wholeheartedly recommend Ashlee as the lawyer to turn to. Her expertise, dedication, and unwavering belief in her clients make her an exceptional legal professional. With Ashlee by your side, you can rest assured that you have an advocate who will fight tooth and nail for your rights, no matter how challenging the circumstances. Once again, thank you, Ashlee, for your time, effort, and continuous hope. Your commitment to our case and the remarkable outcome you achieved have truly changed our lives for the better. You are an extraordinary lawyer, and we couldn't have navigated this difficult journey without you.
