Ashley Wesley

Hi! My name is Ashley Wesley. I am part of the Birmingham office team here at Bond, Botes, Reese, & Shinn, P.C., where I am a Case Manager.  I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Birmingham, AL. I graduated from P.D. Jackson-Olin High School and from there I went to Alabama State University. Nothing makes me happier than shopping for shoes. I am an avid lover of our creator. I love people and having the opportunity to connect with others.


Willie Handy

My name is Willie Handy. I grew up in Homewood, Alabama. I have worked at Bond & Botes as a Legal Assistant for over 17 years. I started as an intern with Bond & Botes while in high school. I decided then, this is something I could see myself making a career of.  I’ve been trained by some of the best Bankruptcy Attorneys in the state of Alabama, and I take pride in that! There is no greater joy than having the privilege of helping others.

Evelyn Hardman

Hi!  I’m Evelyn Hardman.  I am a native of Southern California, but now call Alabama my home.  I have been the Office Manager for Bond, Botes, Reese & Shinn for over 20 years.  I enjoy working in an environment where everyone is deeply rooted in their faith: This is not just a job but also a ministry.  To have someone leave our office with a smile on their face after having come to our office feeling defeated, embarrassed, even in tears, is the most awesome feeling.  It is very rewarding to be able to help people through difficult times in their lives.  It is a privilege to come to work every day to spend time with people I now call my friends, my family.  I am truly blessed to be able to call Bond, Botes, Reese & Shinn not only my job, but my home.
