Ashleigh Aitken

Official Counsel, Aitken*Aitken*Cohn

By Elaine Murphy & Sarah VaughnPublished: May 01, 2012

An attorney specializing in personal injury, business litigation and class action cases, Ashleigh Aitken is motivated by the clients who seek her help. Her proudest moment came upon winning a wrongful death case on behalf of a family that lost three members when a faulty power line struck their backyard. She enjoys assisting people “at their most vulnerable moment, and [guiding] them through a complicated legal system.”
   
Aitken’s greatest passion is giving back to her community and “using my legal training for public service, whether serving on the Orange County Fair Board, as secretary of the Orange County Bar Association, or taking on pro bono cases like we did in saving the OC Fairgrounds from being sold to developers.”
   
Involved with several professional associations, she serves on the board of Orange County Women Lawyers and, as noted, the Orange County Bar Association. Prior to joining her firm, Aitken was an assistant U.S. attorney, where she prosecuted federal cases involving bank robbery, fraud and firearms violations.
   
She admires her father, also a lawyer at Aitken*Aitken*Cohn, for his professional skills and respect for the community, and aspires to echo these qualities. aitkenlaw.com

First job: A waitress at Coco’s.
