Maine’s Premier DUI
& Criminal Defense Law Firm

William H.. Ashe


In 2018, Attorney Ashe joined WTB LAW as Of Counsel.  In his capacity as Of Counsel, Attorney Ashe represents our clients on a wide range of criminal matters, including state & federal drug trafficking charges, DUI / OUI charges, violent felonies, sex crimes, Fish & Game violations and bail hearings in connection with a wide variety of criminal matters.  Oftentimes, Attorney Ashe will be tasked to handle important motion hearings, judicial conferences, bail hearings, plea and sentencing hearings.  Attorney Ashe is the consummate "utility fielder" for WTB LAW.  Attorney Ashe is also a Registered Maine Guide and his experience as a Registered Maine Guide has proven invaluable to our clients who've been charged with Title 12 violations.

Attorney Ashe is a graduate of Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania where he majored in Political Science and American Government, graduating Cum Laude.  Following his graduation from Gettysburg College, Attorney Ashe went on to study law at The University of Maine, School of Law in Portland, Maine.  Upon graduating Cum Laude in 2009, Attorney Ashe went on to work for a well-known criminal defense firm in southern Maine, where he quickly rose up the ranks, attaining the title of Senior Associate.  During that time, he was responsible for litigating some of the most serious criminal cases on that law firm's docket.

Attorney Ashe has extensive motion practice and trial experience.  He's represented thousands of the criminally accused over the years and has conducted hundreds of motions to suppress and bail arguments as well as nearly two dozen criminal trials, many of which included serious felony or domestic violence charges.  During his time in southern Maine, Attorney Ashe earned the esteem of the local defense bar, judiciary and various prosecution offices.  He has a reputation as an aggressive advocate and works tirelessly on behalf of our clients at every stage of the criminal process.  His experience runs the gamut and includes serious sex crimes and murder cases, violent felonies and minor misdemeanors.

Like so many of the attorneys at WTB LAW, Attorney Ashe has received a number of accolades over the years, including being named to the Top 100 Criminal Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association from 2014 - 2019; Top 10 under 40 in Criminal Defense by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys; and like Attorney Bly himself, Attorney Ashe is rated a perfect 10.0 by the legal rating firm Avvo, which considers a mix of experience, professional and client reviews.

In 2017, Attorney Ashe, a native of Blue Hill, Maine, decided to relocate up north in order to be closer to his original "Maine roots".  He now resides in Ellsworth, Maine, where he enjoys hunting & fishing throughout the northern part of the state.
