I first retained Attorney Ken Ashworth in 2002 to help with business planning for a charity of mine. I retained him a second time in 2008, for further business planning help.

I then enjoined him as my attorney again in 2012 to help raise capital for the launch of the business. Steve Lane, owner of Desert Skyline Resources, as well as a partner-client of Ken Ashworth's; was also enjoined. Then a mergers and acquisition attorney from Utah, David Vincent Rees was brought-in to help raise the larger amounts of capital. Before the meeting with David Vincent Rees, an NDA was signed by Steve Lane at Ken Ashworth's office, where I first met Steve Lane.

And it was Steve Lane who helped Ken Ashworth arrange the meeting at the Palms Hotel Casino. And this is where my idea was stolen, and where Ken Ashworth decided to STEAL (and sell) MY BUSINESS PLAN. Then I complain to the Utah State Bar, the Nevada State Bar, the Better Business Bureau, the SEC, and the District Attorney's office; but only after I file a complaint with the Henderson Police Department explaining that both Steve Lane and Ken Ashworth threatened my life if I told anyone what they were doing. Now, the only agency who engages my complaint is the Southern Nevada Better Business Bureau (#9011****), where they quickly conclude that Ken Ashworth is lying, and they recommend I go to the Nevada State Bar, after Ken Ashworth threatens to sue the BBB with all kinds of legalese.

But before the BBB case is administratively closed, the following is included in his response to my complaint: "Mr. Ken Ashworth has not served as Mr. Moore's attorney on this matter. Mr.

Ashworth has never given Mr. Moore any legal advice or served in the attorney role because Mr. Moore has never given the firm any money. Mr.

Moore never brought money to Mr. Ashworth". And he goes on to say, "If there was ever a potential situation during the 15-year relationship where Mr. Ashworth might have acted in some attorney role, he never intended to.

Such situations would have been purely incidental. Mr. Moore neither retained as, nor ever paid, Mr. Ashworth for legal services.

Therefore, Mr. Ashworth never intended to enter an attorney-client relationship." Then I produce several PAID invoices showing that I paid Ken R. Ashworth & Associates over $5000.

I then prove that Ken Ashworth had a fiduciary responsibility to protect me and my ideas. BOTTOM LINE: Ken Ashworth is a corrupt liar and thief who should be disbarred for his behavior; and who should be sued for malpractice, but I don't have the money, and he is so connected to organized crime, that I might as well be an ant.

Worst attorney ever

Jared Johnson was hired by my late mother to do her wills estate planning and the such.

He charged her in excess of over $30,000 over an 8 month period.

When she passed, our lives were turned upside down.

It turns out Johnson did NOT do most of what he was supposed to like get a tax ID number for the trust.

He was supposed to help with tax consequences of this whole process.

It turns out he either had NO clue or was too lazy to do this properly.

In addition to that we now found out that Johnson was asking for money from our mother!!!

He wanted to borrow $50,000 he said for his wife's foundation!

This man is terrible. Keep away!

Also defrauded by Johnson

I met with Jared Johnson and he wrote up a contract for a diamond that was supposed to be worth a lot of money.

I was loaning money to someone and the diamond was collateral for that loan.

It turns out the diamond was fake - and Johnson wrote up this bogus contract.

I took the contract to my sisters husband who is an attorney and he said that this was the worst contract ever.

So needless to say the diamond was fake-and I didn't get my money.

So it seems that this Johnson guy does this over and over.

Please let me know how I can get involved in this lawsuit too

You should have had your sisters husband do the contract. It seems that you like to blame others for your mistakes.


Why didn't you have the diamond appraised by an expert beforehand (duh)? If your sister's husband is an attorney, why didn't you have him draw up the agreement, not that you would have needed to had the diamond been deemed fake?

How was the agreement bogus? Sounds to me like you are either making all of this up or you simply made a lot of very bad decisions and are blaming someone else for your own financial mistakes.


I loaned $40,000

Hired terrible attorney

We hired ken Ashworth and Jared johnson to do some back taxes.

They ended up selling us on doing some offshore scheme which they said was 100% legit and fool proof.

Two years later we were audited by the IRS and then they charged us criminally.

We spent tens of thousands od dollars on legal fees listening to these two crooks.

They never answered emails or their phones their secretary was always unfriendly and non-chalant.

my husband had a stroke as a result of these two useless men calling themselves attorneys.

there are much better attornies out there better not to hire these two.
