client satisfaction

our primary goal

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ashly on litigation matters over the last couple of years. Despite having a full load as the lead in-house attorney, Ashly was always quick to respond and thorough in her answers. She is one of those indispensable brain trusts with a wealth of information for her company, combined with a breadth of legal knowledge that enables her to identify relevant information. Ashly is also incredibly personable and flexible, and it has always been easy to discuss anything with her directly. The combination of her knowledge and personality made her the perfect client representative, either in court or in alternative dispute resolutions before a decision maker."



"I had the distinct honor to work as Ms. Guernaccini’s colleague from July 2012 until August of 2016. During that time I came to recognize Ms. Guernaccini’s professional judgment, perceptive analytical ability, and strong personal character.

Ms. Guernaccini constantly impressed me with her self-confidence and poise, her ability to work with and motivate others, as well as her leadership and professional conduct. She stood out as a vibrant and dynamic leader who effectively communicated among the many divisions and locations of the organization to proficiently execute projects and affect change. Her reliability and diligence have earned her well-deserved recognition as a valued and respected executive among the company as well as the leaders and communities with which she interacts."



"I have known and worked with Ms. Guernaccini for over six years (since 2012) in her capacity as Director of Legal Affairs for Halcyon Horizons and Legal Affairs Supervisor for Elevate Addiction Services, as my law firm has provided legal services to Halcyon and Elevate on a variety of legal issues. These Issues were identified by and directed to our firm by Ms. Guernaccini. These issues include, but are no means limited to, corporate organizational and operational issues, HR issues, client matters, and third party liability issues.

Her skill set aside, I have found her to be painstakingly ethical, personally accountable and of high moral character. Upon a recent visit to one of the Elevate campuses, I was taken by the level of respect and appreciation afforded to her by clients, peers and supervisors alike."
