Kimberly Ashbach Esq.
Employment Law Attorney
Philadelphia, Montgomery, and Bucks County
Meet Kimberly H. Ashbach, Attorney at Law
As your attorney, I bring to the relationship a rich and diverse background of legal experience. I graduated with highest honors, “Order of the Coif,” from the College of William and Mary. I then launched my career in the public sector as a law clerk for the Hon. Ronald P. Wertheim. After my clerkship, I entered the United States Department of Justice through its honors program, with responsibility for defending the government against million dollar lawsuits involving claims of environmental exposure to toxic substances.
In private practice at a large Philadelphia law firm, I handled ERISA and employment matters on behalf of clients such as Mack Trucks, Continental Bank, MidLantic Bank, PECO and the City of Reading. These assignments provided me with a broad based exposure to employment issues in both the private and public sectors.

Additional Areas of Practice
I am passionate about protecting the civil rights of the people of Pennsylvania. I handle cases related to:
As a horse owner myself for more than 40 years, I am deeply familiar with what it takes to protect not only the financial investments in these animals, but the personal investments as well. I can help you with issues such as:
Persons with disabilities have special challenges and protection under the law. Federal and state laws prevent employers from discriminating against disabled employees in the workplace. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a person with a disability in the terms and conditions of employment and employers must accommodate those persons with a disability who can still perform the essential functions of the job.
I was an executive working in a small family owned finance and insurance company in the City of Philadelphia for the past 11 years. I was an integral part of the success of the various closely held companies which accrued assets in excess of $100,000,000. I eventually decided that I wanted out of the “family” business to pursue my own career path. While negotiating my buyout package, I tried to resolve my 401k and pension plan but it just seemed to muddy the negotiating waters. I felt confident that I was protected under the Federal laws of ERISA, so I decided to deal with the retirement plans at a later time. I made numerous cordial attempts to rollover my money to only later find that the CEO of the company had no intentions of ever giving me my money (as ridiculous as that may sound) and flat out said so.
I was forced to look for an ERISA lawyer to pursue my position and believe me it was not an easy search. I wanted a lawyer who was going to take a personal interest in my case and be accessible at a moment’s notice. Kim Ashbach was that very person. She listened to my concerns and we worked closely together to develop a strategy to WIN!
Kim met with the opposing attorneys head on. She was smooth, tactful and professional while always keeping her eye on the prize. After weeks of peeling the proverbial onion, she was able to expose the defense as a complete sham and nothing more than a personal vendetta against me.
After an initial contentious litigation battle, Kim secured a negotiated an extremely generous settlement for me with all of my attorney’s fees reimbursed. Kim did this all the while being personally attacked by the unprofessional defense attorneys and she was able to shield me from all of the backdoor negotiating nonsense. If you need an excellent attorney for your ERISA claim, I did the home work for you, KIM ASHBACH IS YOUR LAWYER!!!!!
I will be happy to talk to you if you need a referral.C.R.S.
