Review:

"screwed over creditors in Hashfast bankruptcy case"

Former Employee - Reviewed on February 13, 2019

you already got rid of her, that's good. I would follow up with all the creditors she represented in the case and see how they're doing.

Pros : if you want to make money they'll have the resources to get your ambulance chasing cases. however, i don't know if this will help your soul
Cons : Ashley McDow got nothing for her creditors in the HashFast bankruptcy case while making a boatload on us. No good. Never followed up with us.
