I highly recommend Mr. Hardee
Mr. Hardee took over my personal injury case when my attorney at the time felt that he could not commit the level of time and knowledge needed for my case. Mr. Hardee and his paralegals amazed me with diving into my case with such vigor. I knew they would work until they got everything I was entitled to receive. They kept me informed along each aspect of my case and always got in touch with me immediately when I had questions. Mr. Hardee ensured I got the best outcome possible. I highly recommend Mr. Hardee to anyone I know is looking for representation for personal injury.
