Ashleigh DoRozario – Litigation Lawyer

Potts Lawyers > Our Criminal & Litigation Lawyers > Ashleigh DoRozario – Litigation Lawyer

Ashleigh is a litigation lawyer at Potts Lawyers, who is legally blind.

She has considerable knowledge in dispute resolution with a focus on insurance and compensation law, including significant experience in an array of complex matters arising from general public liability incidents, motor vehicle and workplace accidents, together with coronial inquest matters involving alleged medical negligence. 

Since 2004, Ashleigh has gained immeasurable experience within the legal industry, having previously worked at two top tier law firms in Australia, before relocating to the Gold Coast and joining our team. 

For over a decade, Ashleigh has worked under the mentorship of litigation director, Craig DoRozario, attaining a wealth of experience in a wide range of civil litigation and dispute resolution matters.  

Since joining Potts Lawyers, Ashleigh has developed further skills in civil litigation matters involving general contractual and debt recovery disputes, white collar crime and confiscation injunction proceedings, defamation actions, workplace investigations, professional negligence and occupational disciplinary proceedings, as well as discrimination, human rights and disability advocacy.

 Awarded a Bachelor of Laws with Distinction, Ashleigh is admitted as a legal practitioner of the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia.

Ashleigh is passionate in her role, maintains an approachable attitude, and is well respected by colleagues and clients for her ingrained work ethic, professionalism and reliability in providing regular progress updates and communicating clearly on costs.  As a testament to her character and community spirit, Ashleigh was awarded MS Queensland’s 2015 Young Person of the Year for her tireless fundraising efforts.  In 2018, Ashleigh was again honoured by His Excellency The Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, in recognition as one of the 60 Most Influential People in the 60 Year History of MS Queensland.

In 2020, Ashleigh became a founding member of the Queensland Law Society’s Diverse Abilities Network.  In this position, she works collaboratively with Network members and the Queensland Law Society’s Equity and Diversity Committee, championing equal opportunity and inclusion for people with disability within the legal profession and wider community.

In dealing with adversity, Ashleigh possesses an impressive level of understanding, compassion and empathy for the emotional strain clients often experience.  As a legally blind lawyer, she upholds the ideals of equality, and aspires for justice and inclusion for those in a minority.

In keeping with her values to support members of minority groups, Ashleigh loves contemporary art by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.  When visiting the Potts Lawyers’ Gold Coast office, you can find select pieces from her collection on display.

 Stepping away from work, Ashleigh enjoys pandering to her exuberant dog Louis, and demanding cat (Lord) Claude.  When weather permits, Ashleigh’s weekends are best spent soaking up the Gold Coast lifestyle: boating in the Broadwater and taking Louis to her favourite café and beach haunts.

I just want to acknowledge and thank Craig and Ashleigh DoRozario for their expertise and all they have done to help… You are wonderful people and have gone above and beyond.  Thank you both so very much, we are forever grateful. Sometimes “thank you” just doesn’t seem enough.”

“Dear Craig & Ash

Thank you both so much for all your professional support and service over the last four (or so) years.  Your personal compassion and understanding towards me has been particularly valuable and will always be remembered with enormous gratitude.

Words don’t seem adequate but I cannot thank you enough. Under dreadful circumstances, it has still been a privilege to get to know you both, even just a little!  I wish you both every success and happiness. 

My very best to you always.”

“You and Craig have been wonderful to me.  I know it’s a job but you have both been friendly and caring and I have always felt well looked after.  You also have your own health issues but you seem to be able to put them aside and just get on with it.  You probably don’t realise how inspiring that is to the people who know you personally.  I count you both now as my friends and we hope you will consider us friends in some category or another!  I have told Craig I would love to see you down here one time.”
