Robby D. Ash
Robby is primarily a criminal defence lawyer who represents people and corporations charged with serious offences. He has appeared at all levels of court throughout the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, courts in other provinces, the Federal Court of Canada and Supreme Court of Canada. He is currently a member of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Bar and Bench Committee and the Newfoundland and Labrador Court of Appeal’s Criminal Appeal Rules Committee. Robby is also a former adjudicator for the Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Commission and case reviewer for the Association in Defence of the Wrongfully Convicted.
While he takes his role as Defence Counsel very seriously, he is careful never to take himself too seriously. This approach has helped many clients successfully navigate times of crisis. In addition to his criminal defence practice, Robby also handles personal injury cases and other civil litigation with the same vigor.
Robby was born and raised on the West Coast of Newfoundland and has based his practice out of that location since he was called to the bar in 2008.
