Look out! Ashley Alfano has been granted a scholarship to study in the paralegal program, and has high hopes of following her father into the legal profession.
Ashley began her professional journey by doing door to door sales by selling chocolate bars and Toronto Star Subscriptions. Initially, people laughed at this. But they did not realise that this was where Ashley was not only learning how to persuade people to buy something, but where she was fine tuning her skills as an advocate. Ashley was soon promoted to manager, with her own team of assigned sales people. From there, Ashley sold plans and cellphones for Rogers and excelled at helping her clients understand the often complicated nature of the plans and the best plan to meet their needs. At Rogers, Ashley continued to learn how to understand a client’s needs and advocate in their best interests. This is a skill that she will use to effectively serve all of her legal clients in due course.
The team at We Defend You is excited that Ashley will be working with us on a volunteer basis now that she is beginning her paralegal studies. We know she has great potential and can’t wait to see more skills and talents grow alongside her knowledge.
