I met Harry in 1993, a few weeks before my son was born. At that time he had was a lawyer specializing in business and contract law for 6 or 7 years, and I was in the restaurant business. Since our meeting I've built a storage facility, another restaurant, an office complex, and a website hosting business. I consult with Harry anytime the situation is new, or the stakes are high.
The real test was a commercial tenant who signed a lease and became the tenant from "HE double toothpicks". The lease Harry wrote was rock solid. Every contingency the bad tenant brought up was covered in the lease. He knew without question what he had agreed to, signed it, and then tried to weasel out of it. The small cost of Harry's advice up-front saved me what might have been thousands without his expertise.
When I first got into business for myself I was advised "You always need a good accountant. A good accountant will tell you when you need a good attorney.” This has been some of the best advice I have received, and Harry is the best attorney I have worked with.
I am still in the website hosting business and enjoy it very much. On the rare occasion it's not so enjoyable I consult Harry. History has given me the confidence to be sure good business practices lead to the best possible result. Consulting Harry for your legal needs is a good business practice. I Highly recommend Harry Hackney.

Mr. Hackney is an outstanding attorney. I was being sued by several non-relatives who tried to take advantage of a dieing ex-spouse and then sued for assets of the deceased suggesting fraudulent use of a Power of Attorney and then wrongful use of the powers of an Executor. None of which was even remotely true. Mr. Hackney was suggested to me by another attorney who was handling the Probate case for our family and could not represent me in both instances. He had come up against Mr. Hackney in court and told me that Harry was "the best" and I came to find out that this is true. Both my attorneys were outstanding in what they did. Mr. Hackney was amazingly knowledgeable, compassionate, understanding and caring. He went after the others relentlessly with the law. I won't say that I enjoyed paying him every month for his services, but I will say that I certainly was billed fairly and got more than my monies worth. I have already recommended him to a co-worker and would highly recommend him to anyone. He is honest, knows his stuff, and works well with you and for you. I like to stay on top of things and so does Mr. Hackney, always keeping me informed as to what was going on with the lawsuits either via phone, email, or regular mail. He always let me know what his next steps were going to be, what to expect and an idea of what the cost would be, all of which I greatly appreciated. The outcome was exactly as Mr. Hackney had said it would be, favorable to me and our sons. I very much appreciate the work that Mr. Hackney did for me and the fact that he was recommended by my other attorney. I don't think that you could go wrong hiring Mr. Hackney. I hope never to need another attorney, but if I should you can rest assured that I will be giving Mr. Hackney a call. Mr. Hackney is knowlegeable, honest and seems to geniunely enjoy what he does for a living, and he is a good and a decent individual. I think that says it all.

I have used Harry for establishing a coorporation for a boat brokerage. His expertise helped in "doing it right the first time" and maximizing my tax benefits.
Harry also provides continuing legal advice for 46 apartments I own as well as a commercial strip center.
Harry has helped with legal advice on other multi-million dollar real estate transactions.
