Ashlyn M. Capote, an associate in the firm’s Global Insurance Services Practice Group, advises insurers on complex coverage matters and handles insurance coverage litigation throughout New York State.

Ashlyn earned her bachelor’s at Aquinas College, graduating magna cum laude, and went on to the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, again graduating magna cum laude. During law school she served as editor-in-chief of the University of Detroit Mercy Law Review and gained additional experience as a research and teaching assistant, as an intern with the U.S. Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review, and as an extern with the United States Army Corps of Engineers Office of Counsel.
