    • I do not recommend Earl Hargrave.
    • I hired Earl 6-12 months ago.
    • Earl handled my Residential matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr Hargrave represented me. I hired him and he had me send the letters, file in the court and so on. My last attorney did all this for me so I thought it was odd but ok. My wife and I had a disagreement with what was said about advise he claims didnt happen the way we both heard it. I called and politely inquired as to what happened and he got very upset then told me never to call again. The people answering the phones were very helpful and polite. Mr Hargrave was at first but ended up in my opinion very unprofessional. This is MY OPINON and MY representation of what happened.

    Mr Hargrave represented me. I hired him and he had me send the letters, file in the court and so on. Come to find out he took on something he does not normally do after hiring him. After representing me he said that it was not necessary for him to represent me again due to the simplicity of the case. He advised me to wait for the tenants to sue for the deposit back and then in my response letter counter sue and that I would not have to pay a fee that way. The clerks did not say anything about a fee when I filed this either. The Judge said I could not counter sue for property damages over 5k due to the fee not being paid. I called the attorney back after court and told the clerks I am not sure what happened but I may have been miss advised but not sure because of the fee to see if it could be resolved due to an error on the court part. For some reason he called me and chewed me out saying he cannot believe the I claimed he miss advised me. Told me he would never take a case from me again and to never call his office again! So I am back at square one again. On top of this he never requested attorney fees for me or to have the case stated as with prejudiced so it could not be opened again. Guess what? They sued me again for the same thing again he represented me for and left me in the dirt.

    • I recommend Earl Hargrave.
    • I hired Earl 1-3 years ago.
    • Earl handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Hargrave assisted me when my exhusband sued me for back child support he had never paid going back to 1999. I was outraged that he was suing me and didn't know what to do. Mr. Hargrave and his staff assisted me in trial and always made me feel comfortable about who was representing me . P.S. We won!!!! I would recommend him to anyone who has to navigate the court system.

    • I recommend Earl Hargrave.
    • I hired Earl more than 3 years ago.
    • Earl handled my Litigation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Earl has represented me in the past, is currently representing me again, and will always represent me in the future if needed. He is extremely knowledgeable in a multitude of area's and seems to always be 15 steps ahead of the opposition. He is helpful, friendly, extremely talented and just plain awesome. He is also hysterical! He goes above and beyond the call of duty, and does the impossible, he gives lawyers a good name.
