I was floundering trying to get reasonable visitation or custody with my children. My ex-wife and her attorney pulled every dirty trick in the book to keep me away from my children just for spite.
Mr. Hart was able to expose the dishonesty, cut right through the tricks and win every hearing to date since he starting representing me.
The bottom line is if you are looking for suburb representation and advice and you don't want to have legal "mumbo jumbo" thrown at you as an excuse for sub-part results then hire Mr. Hart. Provided you follow his advice you will find yourself in good hands.

Mr. Hart called me and spoke with me about my budding business. He gave sound advice and had plenty of personal and professional experience to draw from. I was very impressed by him and look forward to growing my business with his help.

I just wanted to let anyone know, especially small Carriers. This is your guy as far as I am concerned, straight up with everything. I have been fortunate not to have had too many Attorneys’. To me it is like hiring a mechanic, once you open the door to a fix, somehow or at least for me they find something else. So far Mr. Darren Hart handled what I needed to do with only a few days to spare. Since, I waited till the last minute. Who knows how it would have worked out if he had the time I had. Either way Mr. Hart handled what I needed, up until now. Since I still have to complete my end of what he worked out. He wasn't as far as distance. Close to where my issue was, about 2 hours away. To me he was a fresh set of eyes and to me didn't seem like he was a sales person. I will definitely recommend this Attorney anyone. I think he could help anyone, anywhere. I live in Utah and he is in V.A it was quick and simple, so far anyway. It can be tough when you have contractor’s one bad decision in contacting the wrong counsels the first time can be costly. This AVVO site worked so far for me. As far as Mr. Hart just ask him. He seemed straight up and honest. Most of all, I feel he went to bat for me when the contractor I had was the one with the ticket. So either way I was in the HOT Seat. Mr. Hart was worth the call.

For a Attorney that did not know me from Adam. I can tell this man is sincere, in the advice he gave me . It was in no way a sales pitch, it was straight to the point. I have never met or retained council with this Attorney. As of yet, In my situation here. Mr. Hart was only about giving me advice like I was a neighbor. He seemed to know what he was taking about, I will be calling him tomorrow. This was just a call with advice. If you have the option to let him call. Go for that option it is 20 minutes to ten at night we just finished. It will be worth your time. This is my first time using this site. I only wish I would have search for it sooner.

Mr. D. Hart has my uttermost respect and gratitude for his selfless assistance in a case where his talent for conscientiousness and forethought salvaged what could have been an atrocious miscarriage of justice. I have enlisted Mr. Hart's services several times in the past, and have obtained an appreciation for his courtroom dignity and witticism. I hold no reservation in my recommendation of the utilization of Hart & Associates in any legal scene of action your needs may manifest.

Over a period of approximately 5 years, Mr. Hart handled all legal matters for our fast growing commercial construction management/general contracting firm. Our firm worked throughout central Virginia on a diverse group of projects with gross revenue of approximately 8 million annually. Over the same period, many significant legal issues arose that required Mr. Hart's involvement, with several of these matters proceeding to litigation, mediation and/or arbitration. Mr. Hart's leadership, counsel and personal tenacity in these matters resulted in a 100 % success rate with our firm prevailing in all matter. An impressive record and we were extremely satisfied to say the very least.

Mr. heart took on my divorce case after hearing what I said he did it with only my down payment and it was over 15 thousand for my divorce !
He went forward with my case anyways and he won it for me! He and his partner did a wonderful job ! i will never be able to repay for all they did for me but to say how great they were and how they stood by me even tough they knew I had no money to pay for any more expense!

Since the spring of 2009, Darren Hart has helped me tremendously with custody, visitation, and child support issues. I couldn't have asked for better advice, information, or support. I have complete faith in Darren's ability to help me with any further issues I have.

After firing my third attorney for in my divorce with custody battle that has been on going on three years, and has been before multiple Judges; I bumped into Mr. Hart one day who offered me a consultation.
Beginning with the end in mind, our initial consultation was to outline our overall strategy beginning with the first step. As I get farther into this process I am more and more confident I made the right choice as I am in capable hands. I'm closer than ever to the thing that matters most: obtaining custody of my two children.
Here's the bottom line. Mr. Heart knows what he's doing and will not waste your time. He has been with me every step of the way with valuable information, helping me to anticipate the next move every step of the way.
My advice: get a consultation and see for yourself.

I find this lawyer to be very ethical, informed and a true advocate for the case at hand. He was able to repair and suceed in a case in which another law practice mismanaged my case severly. Through diligence and a grasp of the law he was able to turn a lost case into a successful outcome. I would recommend him highly.

I contacted Mr. Hart via email about a case late in the evening and he promptly returned my phone call before lunch the following day. Based on the information I provided he felt my case lacked legal sufficiency, but at least he took the time to explain his reasoning and after speaking with him I understood why.
He took the time to review the facts of my case; he was respectful and listened to what I had to say and impressed me as being a competent, honest guy with a commendable knowledge of the law...and although I'm not going to pursue the matter at hand I would certainly call upon him again in the future.
