Ashlie Case Sletvold is an experienced civil-rights and employment lawyer. She represents individuals facing some of the most challenging circumstances in their lives including serious physical, emotional, and economic injuries.
A relentless advocate, Ashlie devotes her substantial energy to serving her clients with the same principled representation she provided to Fortune 100 companies while working for a large, international law firm. Now, as a partner in a boutique litigation firm, she has the freedom to select the matters where her efforts can have the most impact.
Her practice focuses on all types of constitutional and discrimination claims including retaliation for opposing discrimination. In an era when most civil cases settle before reaching a jury, Ashlie’s courtroom experience, including as a first-chair trial attorney, uniquely situates her to develop creative strategies from the initial stages of a case to position her clients for trial victories.
In addition to her courtroom work, Ashlie counsels clients in proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, on Title IX sexual-assault proceedings in colleges and universities, and on negotiating severance packages and noncompetition agreements. She has a great deal of experience advising clients on how to preserve evidence to protect their rights in the lead up to litigation.
Ashlie is also skilled in using Ohio’s sunshine laws-requiring all levels of government to conduct business with transparency-to conduct investigations and obtain critical evidence. She frequently locks horns with public offices that fail to meet their obligations under the Ohio Public Records Act. She is experienced in obtaining compliance with the Act through both mandamus proceedings in the Ohio Supreme Court and through the new Court of Claims procedures. She has guest lectured at Ohio universities and is sought after to teach continuing legal-education courses on the subject.
Ashlie attended the University of Akron on a volleyball scholarship where she earned a B.A. in philosophy, summa cum laude. Ashlie earned her J.D. at the Yale Law School where she served as an assistant coach for the Bulldogs volleyball team. After graduating, she joined an international law firm based in Cleveland and spent several years representing corporate clients in high-stakes litigation and counseling employers on noncompetition agreements. She continues her involvement in the volleyball community as a collegiate and USAV official.
