Educational and Professional Background
Education: Brigham Young University 1972; Western State College of Law, 1978. Mr. Ashworth was a founding member of Smith & Ashworth. Thereafter, Mr. Ashworth organized the firm of Ashworth, Hayes & Moran, LLP. In 2006, the firm became known as Ashworth & Ashworth, LLP when Mr. Ashworth’s daughter, Carissa Ashworth-Johnson became a partner. There are four partners in the firm in addition to support staff and other personnel. Mr. Ashworth has settled, arbitrated, mediated or litigated through trial more than four thousand cases during the past thirty-three years as an attorney.
Mr. Ashworth has tried more than 40 jury trials to verdict and over 300 bench trials, including family law disputes, throughout the entire State of California. Additionally, he has litigated over 200 arbitrations through binding arbitration. He is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. His trial experience is an asset in mediation: he can clearly explain what the trial experience is about versus the mediation experience. This is fundamentally important to most client attorneys and their party litigants...so that they understand that they can control the mediation process, which is the same control they lose during the trial process. Mr. Ashworth knows he is hired by the attorneys, so he uses this information at the direction of his "boss"... the attorney hiring him. "It is my job to listen...then do my job and resolve the case."
