Born in Kathmandu, Nepal, Ash moved to North America to pursue better educational opportunities. During his undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota, Ash worked with an Insurance Law Litigation team for a multinational insurance company in the mid-western United States.
After obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree, Ash worked for a cutting edge hi-tech and urban planning company in Boston, Massachusetts. Later, Ash took a year off from his work in Boston to travel in Asia and Europe before immigrating to Canada. Ash attended the University of Ottawa to study law.
Ash has practiced law in jurisdictions across Ontario and in Alberta since he was called to the bar in 2009.
Ash is passionate about litigation. He has appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Federal Court of Canada. He has also represented clients before the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, the Immigration Appeal
Division, and other Canadian Administrative tribunals.
As a Criminal Defence Lawyer, Ash has defended persons charged with a wide range of offences under the Criminal Code of Canada, the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. He has also defended clients charged with violations of the Copyright Act, Income Tax Act, Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and Customs Act. The criminal charges he has defended clients against include Aggravated Assault, Sexual Offences, Impaired Driving, Domestic Assault, Mischief, Fraud, and Drug Offences.
In his Immigration Law practice, Ash has appeared on the behalf of clients at Refugee Hearings and Appeals, Deportation Hearings, and other Immigration Appeals. Ash also has substantial experience in
preparing immigration applications, including for spousal or family sponsorship, skilled worker
immigration, permanent residence, and work permits. As an immigrant to Canada himself, Ash finds his
immigration practice to be very fulfilling, and he is proud to have many former clients who are happily living and working in Canada.
In his Family Law practice, Ash has conducted trials and negotiated settlement agreements in high conflict cases involving child custody, child access, child support payments, spousal support, property division, and many other contentious issues.
What has fueled the success of DUVADIE Law is Ash’s ability to establish strong personal bonds with his clients. Ash invests fully in pursuing the interests of his clients. His personal commitment to fearless advocacy and being attentive to his client’s needs provide the foundation for DUVADIE Law’s client focused philosophy.
Ash is a member of the Criminal Lawyers Association, the Ottawa Carleton Defence Association and the County of Carleton Law Association. Ash is proudly multilingual, and can communicate with clients in English, French, and Nepalese. As a multilingual lawyer, Ash believes he has an obligation to assist members of the pubic who have difficulty interacting with Canada’s legal system because of a language barrier. This belief has led Ash to give regular public talks and other speaking engagements that aim to inform members of Ottawa’s immigrant communities of their legal rights.
