    I have known Hardy Roberts for over 15 years and, throughout that time, he has impressed me with the aggressive, professional and innovative ways in which he has represented his clients' interests. Mr. Roberts has focused his practice on the construction litigation arena and I have absolute confidence that every matter I refer to him will be handled with zealous advocacy and utmost competence.
