Who is Ashleigh Aitken?

Born and raised in Orange County, Ashleigh Aitken is a community leader, lawyer, and mother. She has served as a federal prosecutor for the United States Attorney in the Central District of California prosecuting violent crimes, illegal firearms distribution, narcotics, child pornography, and fraud. Now in private practice, Ashleigh seeks justice for her clients, and works pro bono to aid homeless veterans, victims of domestic violence, expand free legal services for veterans and military families, and protect the Orange County Fairgrounds.

Ashleigh currently serves on the executive board of WISEPlace, the only shelter in Orange County for unaccompanied homeless women, as well as on the leadership team of United Way’s End Homelessness OC. 

In 2012, Ashleigh was appointed to serve on the Orange County Fair Board by then Governor Jerry Brown. She also served as President of the Orange County Bar Association, where she established a Veterans Committee to increase pro bono legal support for veterans and military families, and as Chair of the Anaheim Community Services Board where she helped to secure funding for local nonprofit organizations that work to lift people out of poverty, prevent elder abuse, offer job training and placement, and provide additional education and arts resources to at-risk youth.

I am proud to be supported by people and organizations that share my values. I have built a broad base of support among Anaheim residents, business owners, unions, elected officials, former prosecutors and judges, and organizations that share my vision for Anaheim–a safe city to raise our families and provide economic security via good-paying jobs, business-friendly policies and opportunities to grow our small business community.
