After visiting other lawyers to aid in my divorce, I finally found one whose goal was to direct me in an honest and knowledgable manner. Straight forward advice, genuine concern for my situation and didn't make me feel that I'm just another paycheck. By offering me options to suit my needs and presenting methods to accomplish in my own if possible but also offering me a comfortable option if hired as my lawyer, I left our consultation feeling confident in the road ahead of me.
I found Mr. Hart to be extremely helpful. He spent a lot of time with me, and laid out a plan that I both understood, and gave me options.
James Hart was very helpful providing valuable insight to NC Divorce Law and possible options for my situation. Attentive, non-presumptious and informative.
I've been a single parent with 50/50 custody for almost 2 years. I didn't have a real specific reason to contact Mr. Hart other than general custody information and how to continue to protect both myself and my custody status with my son. He listened to my situation and commented on what I was doing well and also on some areas that I could improve on. By the end of our session, I felt very comfortable and am still happy with my decision to see Mr. Hart.
Hopefully, I won't need him (or any other lawyers in the future), but if my circumstances change and I am in need of an attorney, he will be the first one I contact.
He was very warm and welcoming. He seemed to truly care about what I was going thru. Instead of making me feel like a paying customer.. He took a very long time to get to know me and my situation. He truly has a heart for what he does. It shows in his work and the way he treats people. I would def recommend him as an attorney. Thank you Mr.Hart- for helping me thru this hard time. Truly gave me the legal and emotional support I needed.
Initial consultation for separation and divorce. He took his time with me and explained options after reviewing my situation. He was honest and straightforward.
I wanted to provide some feedback on my recent case to you. It has been three long years and I finally can see the end. Your advice along the way was the right advice. The last chapter dealing with a frivolous alimony claim comes to mind particularity, because with your advice and proactive approach, we avoided court and costs that I could not afford to incur, along with an outcome that yielded the truth. I also have the satisfaction of it lead to me getting my minor child out of a very bad situation.
We spoke of how in the end everyone is accountable for their actions. Your practice helps to make sure that becomes a reality.

I would not recommend using Jim Hart. He is very disorganized, which added stress to an already very painful time. I try to follow the Golden Rule, but feel it is important to let others be informed.
Met with Jim as I needed a legal advisor to address the separation/divorce papers my wife served me. Jim was easy to approach, listened intently and with concern. He informed me of things I had not thought of and helped me sort out issues that were complex. He has helped me understand what is in my best interest. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in family law and specifically divorce cases. His tactics are fair and he is aware of the issues and pitfalls. He is straightforward in establishing reasonable expectations.
I was very pleased with Mr. Hart and how thorough he was during our initial meeting. He made a lot of good points and presented some excellent options which I do plan on pursuing.
