    I endorse this lawyer's work. He is extremely versed in the field. He also devotes a good deal of time to Pro Bono efforts. I would not hesitate to seek his advice on any bankruptcy matter.

  • Robert N Braverman

    I have known John Hargrave for over 25 years. I have worked with him and been his adversary in matters where he has served as the Trustee. I have always found John to be an intelligent individual and highly knowledgeable regarding bankruptcy matters. He is also practical in his approach to the law. I have a lot of respect for John Hargrave as both an attorney and a person.
