Name and Year of Graduation from UNC Law:
Ashley Huffstetler Campbell, UNC Law Class of 2003
Place of employment:
Ragsdale Liggett PLLC, Raleigh
Area of practice:
Business Litigation with a focus on real estate litigation and professional malpractice matters, particularly accounting malpractice.
Favorite class/professor in law school:
Professor Robert Byrd who taught 1L torts. He was very “old school” in the vein of the Paper Chase. He was an excellent and exciting teacher who always kept us on our toes.
Pro Bono experience in law school:
I started a project called the HIV/AIDS Legal Assistance project that provided estate planning services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
What inspired or prompted you to start doing Pro Bono work?
My parents taught me from an early age that we should serve those in need. I volunteered as a teenager in the first home for people living with AIDS in North Carolina, the House of Mercy in Belmont NC, and it inspired me to serve people living with the disease. In the 1990s and early 2000s, AIDS was still a death sentence for many people carrying the disease. Today, thankfully, many people live healthy, productive lives with AIDS.
