Joseph Ashmore is a crook plain and simple. He uses his "retired probate judge" to draw people in. I don't know how he's managed to get away with this as long as he has. It doesn't do any good to file a greivance with the State Bar. We tired that...then you see speaking engagements advertised on the Dallas State Bar website for upcoming events featuring Lori Ashmore Peters....no wonder. He is involved in a lot of lawsuits with people going after him. He just declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April, 2013. It's a matter of public record. We were one of the lucky ones who discovered his misdealing before he took us for everything we own. The battle will go on, that is all I have to say. The sad thing is that he is doing the same thing to so many others as we speak and they have no idea what is happening.
