Sonia Ashley Sonia Ashley
Consultant Solicitor

Sonia joined Setfords as a Consultant Family Law Solicitor in December 2013.

Sonia qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and has a Masters Degree in International and Commercial Law. She is also a Notary Public, Collaborative Lawyer and a Resolution Accredited Specialist in complex financial and property matters and children law disputes.

She aims to provide comprehensive practical legal advice and assistance to those facing a breakdown in their relationship. Whether the separating couple is married, engaged, in a civil partnership or simply living together as cohabitees, her specialty is resolving financial disputes concerning the division of property and assets. This includes issues surrounding the future care of the child(ren). She also has strong expertise in drafting cohabitation, pre and post-nuptial agreements and separation agreements.

As a Collaborative Lawyer her approach to the resolution of disputes is constructive, respectful and non-confrontational. The aim is to resolve family disputes in a less stressful environment and without having to attend court thereby allowing the separating couple more control of the process and the outcome.

Sonia recognises that the emotional strain caused by the breakdown of a relationship can be overwhelming and is committed to providing honest advice and practical solutions to empower clients to make informed decisions about their future.


"I would like to inform you of the excellent work done by Sonia Ashley of Setfords Solicitors, in representing me in the matter of divorce.

Before I came to Sonia, I was with another solicitor from a different firm. My situation was dire, and I was in a very difficult position. From the outset, Sonia provided professional and timely advice; and tremendous support throughout.

Without Sonias help, I would not have acheived success in my divorce case. I am immensely grateful to her. I will personally be recommending Sonia as the first choice to other individuals going through divorce"
