Our Speaker


Shreya Ley isn’t your most traditional lawyer. In fact, after working as a Chemical Engineer for a spell, she decided to start a law practice while on a surfing trip in Washington. With a focus on weaving ample humanity into law (and not above challenging you to a dance-off), Shreya has a special interest in small business owners, asset protection, and intellectual property.
