Our Philosophy:

If you think you need a lawyer, you probably

So call Hart & Assoc., P.C.; we are effective advocates who feel that law is a profession based upon relationships with businesses and people just like you.

Hart & Assoc. provides comprehensive law and law-related solutions to businesses and individuals. Hart & Assoc. seek to reach the goals set by you, our clients, whether through litigation, negotiation, or otherwise. 

We believe in building lasting relationships with our clients and still believe that the practice of law is a profession and calling. We listen to you so that we may learn about you and/or your business. We believe that this perspective better enables us to seek an effective solution to you. We try to tailor our representation, advocacy, and winning strategies to you and your special goals and considerations.

We will stand by you and counsel you, for being a lawyer is being a counselor too.

For businesses, we are your outside general counsel, only a telephone call away. We do believe in "have law license, will travel" and are delighted to come to your place of business to discuss your concerns and to observe your business.

For individuals, we are your confidants to whom you can share the tough issues that try souls of all of us. We will listen without judgment and try to provide insight into the issues raised.  

We bring effective advocacy, creative problem solving, and winning strategies to you, our clients. We measure our success by the successes achieved for you and the goals accomplished for you. At the end of any given day, we are only as successful as our clients.

And, we want you, our current clients and prospective clients, to be highly successful.
