Date   Sep 27, 2016

FordHarrison LLP, one of the country’s largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that Ashley Ward-Singleton and Viktoryia Johnson have joined the firm as Associates in the Tampa office.

“We are pleased that we have been able to add such highly talented individuals to our team,” said Tracey Jaensch, Managing Partner of FordHarrison’s Tampa office. “We are certain they will both help deliver the quality of service and work product our clients have come to expect from us.”

Ashley devotes her practice to working with employers on matters ranging from day-to-day counseling to litigation. Prior to joining FordHarrison, she served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Carol Mirando in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. Her responsibilities in this role included analyzing and interpreting relevant case law, conferring with the judge concerning pending motions, preparing judicial opinions and orders on dispositive motions, and drafting reports and recommendations for the district judges. Ashley also has previous experience in private law practice, having served as an associate for a large Florida-based corporate litigation firm.

Viktoryia concentrates her practice on the representation of clients in labor and employment law matters. While in law school, she gained extensive hands-on legal experience through several clerkships and internships, both in private practice and in the judicial system. In law school, Viktoryia successfully completed the Honors Program; worked as a Research Assistant to an Employment Law Professor; served as an Articles & Symposia Editor and, later, the Executive Editor of the Stetson Law Review; and was the President of the student Labor & Employment Law Association. Viktoryia is a part of FordHarrion’s Year One Associate Development Program, a 15-month program of on-the-job training through mentoring, hands-on work assignments, and direct observation of legal matters. During the 15-month program, Year One associates have no billable hour requirements.
