Using meticulous attention to detail and closely collaborating with her insurance industry clients, Ashley Veitenheimer works hard to deliver optimal results that help advance their business interests. With a focus on coverage matters, she has extensive experience representing interstate and intrastate trucking companies, manufacturers, employers, and construction entities from the lowest-tier subcontractor to the general contractor and owner of the premises. On the insurance defense side, Ashley handles cases related to commercial transportation, construction, and business litigation. She has extensive experience in evaluating and responding to Stowers demands. One area in which she has obtained expertise is the application of the MCS-90 endorsement in interstate commerce.
A dedicated and resourceful attorney, Ashley takes a proactive approach to advocating for her clients in the way that works best for their particular circumstances and business goals, whether through motion practice, settlement negotiations, or trial. Ashley litigates cases in all four of Texas’ U.S. District Courts—Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western. She has frequently represented defendants in products liability, premises liability, personal injury, and appellate matters.
Ashley diligently keeps up with ever-evolving insurance coverage laws to ensure that her clients receive accurate up-to-date analyses. She particularly enjoys coverage work because it can involve everything from personal injury to property damage to deceptive trade practices to professional liability and more. This side of her practice also gives her the opportunity to perform in-depth research, as well as writing, skills for which she has a great passion. Ashley’s strong writing capabilities are particularly pivotal in large, complex cases where dispositive motions are critical to narrowing down the relevant issues at play.
In all areas, Ashley strives to respond immediately to her clients’ needs, gather as much information as possible on the front end, and present them with a detailed plan of attack early in the case. Relying on both the letter of the law and creative thinking, Ashley excels at finding a “needle in a haystack” on any legal question or issue that may arise through thorough investigation and analysis of the facts presented.
