Ash (Linda) and Stone (Eliza) initially crossed paths more than 10 years ago when they both worked for a large regional law firm in Cincinnati. While they eventually ended up practicing at different places, they remained in contact as friends and colleagues. Upon forming Ash & Stone, they envisioned a different and better approach to deliver legal services to the region's businesses.
Linda’s twenty-five year legal career has been based in Cincinnati, Ohio where she was a partner at a distinguished regional firm and most recently at a smaller local firm. She provides both foreign and domestic employers across a wide range of industries, with the necessary immigration expertise required to navigate the ever-changing laws governing the hiring and continued employment of foreign workers. Linda has in-depth experience as a litigator in contract, product liability and creditors’ rights in state and federal courts.
Linda was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. She graduated from the University of Arizona (BA) and the Salmon P. Chase College of Law (JD). She has been fortunate enough to travel extensively and has lived in Argentina and Iran, in addition to Canada and the US.
Practicing attorney since 2008, Eliza has provided legal services to private and public sector clients.

Eliza provides employment immigration advice to clients of varying sizes and is an experienced contracts attorney. In addition, Eliza's experience as in-house counsel in the private and public sectors has positioned her to be an effective legal advisor on a vast spectrum of business matters facing her clients.
