Great Experience
Mr. Ashmore met with my husband and I for a complimentary consultation. During the meeting he gave us our options along with pricing. He was very knowledgeable about our possible case. We decided not to pursue the case but based on our experience we would recommend him! Overall very friendly and helpful.

Condescending and Inept
For the most part, he was unresponsive and when he did respond he was clueless. He had no grasp on even the most basic elements of my case. The expense invoice was unreasonable and inaccurate. I was billed multiple times for the same item and billed for expenses which had already been paid. He lied to the court, opposing counsel and to me. He was rude and condescending. He and his staff attempted to bully me in signing a false document. He constantly put his interests above mine. The level of incompetence and negligence is unbelievable.
