Meet Our 2022 Summer Law Clerks

The Finney Law Firm is excited to introduce its 2022 Summer Law Clerks! Each year, we hire incoming 2L or 3L law students to work in our various practice areas, including General Litigation, Labor and Employment, Constitutional/Public Interest, and Real Estate & Commercial Transactional (to name a few).

The Summer Law Clerk Program allows us to get to know the next generation of attorneys and serves as a mutually beneficial opportunity for them to help work on some of our pending cases and, more importantly, learn in a fast-paced, practical legal environment. This Program is something we very much enjoy and strive to make both fun and enriching for our clerks. Our law clerks draft motions and pleadings, observe depositions, assist with due diligence and document review, meet with clients, research some of the many unique legal issues with which we are often presented, and have even helped with multi-day and multi-week trials!

Ashley Duckworth

Ashley Duckworth

Ashley is an incoming 2L at NKU Chase College of Law and is clerking primarily with our General Litigation and Constitutional/Public Interest groups from our Eastgate location, though she also helps with Transactional projects. Ashley grew up in Morganfield (Union County), Kentucky and earned her undergraduate degree in Communication from Western Kentucky University. Outside of work and school, Ashley is an avid reader and enjoys spending time with her friends and family and her new pup, Zoey! While she still has plenty of time to narrow her legal interests, Ashley is enjoying getting to work with several of our practice groups. Fun fact: Ashley was the overall high scorer during our duckpin bowling outing with the young associates and law clerks earlier this month!

Caitlin plans to become a litigator after graduation and is enjoying the opportunity to work on a wide range of litigation matters at FLF. Outside of work and school, Caitlin can be found running away her stresses at Orangetheory, out on the town with her friends, or rooting on the Bengals and Sooners (she is also a fantasy football pro). We love that competitive spirit!
