Ashleigh Pearse


Ashleigh joined the Burke & Associates Lawyers team in April 2017 as a lawyer in our Wills & Estates and VCAT Appointed Administration departments following a move from regional Victoria.

Ashleigh enjoys the challenge of working in evolving and collaborative areas of law, particularly those areas requiring empathy and compassion.  When assisting clients with their estate planning Ashleigh takes pride in empowering her clients to make informed decisions for their future.  Her work in the VCAT Appointed Administration area has given Ashleigh broad exposure to various issues that can arise later in life.

Ashleigh completed double degrees in Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Science at Deakin University in 2015 and a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice through Leo Cussens in 2016. Following her studies, Ashleigh gained experience in family law for an established firm in regional Victoria before making the move to Melbourne.

Outside of work, Ashleigh enjoys vintage shopping, spending time with her friends and family and listening to music.
