Ashley Wicks of Butler Snow says that she is “honored” to be voted as a finalist, considering that many people she interacts with do not understand her job.

“Most of the time, when people think of lawyers, they think of the litigative work in court, and I am more of a transactional lawyer. So most of my work is document-intensive, telephone calls and negotiating over the phone,” she says.
Nevertheless, the Jackson native finds enjoyment in her practice, which she has been doing for 14 years in total, the last seven being with Butler Snow.

“The thing I love about my practice is that we’re creating things, like we’re creating schools, (and) we’re helping to start new businesses,” she says. “That means you’re helping create jobs, so I like the creative aspect of my job.”
Wicks earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Jackson State University in 2001 and received her master’s in professional accountancy from JSU in 2012.

Through her experience, Wicks has learned that those in her profession have to keep up with the law as it changes.
“You have to constantly keep abreast of new incentives, new regulations, to be a true expert,” she says. – Nate Schumann
