Extremely knowledgable and caring Attorney! Thank you!!
Mr. Harding has been such a blessing as I have navigated through this difficult process. I can not comprehend how much time and detail must go into his thorough research to ensure the best outcome for myself and his other clients. I could not have navigated my way through this legal battle with respect to my private student loans without him. He is a very dedicated and driven individual who has proven to be very trustworthy. During this process I have gotten a glimpse of the complexities of legal matters, and was grateful to have Mr. Harding there every step of the way. He and his associate Karen have always made themselves available if I had questions or concerns. Because of Mark's patient nature, I always felt as if all of our conversations were very thorough, and I always felt as if I was kept up to date on every aspect of my case. Mark also maintained a honest and straightforward approach throughout our correspondence, and was quickly able to reassess the situation when necessary. In my experience he has been extremely patient, provided guidance, and always maintained a professional attitude. I entered this situation feeling as if I was in a very dire situation, but I quickly was put at ease when I recognized Mark's compassionate and genuine demeanor. He will do everything he can to help you through the complexities of the legal process. I would highly recommend Mr. Hardig to anyone without reservation, and have complete faith in his exemplary dedication to his clients and knowledge of the law. I am forever grateful to have had Mark represent me.

Great trial attorney
I hired Mark to defend me in a case that went to trial. He was very helpful and experienced during the whole process. I was acquitted by a jury in seven minutes, which Mark informed me was very fast. I would definitely recommend him.

Child Custody
My Wife and I hired Mark to help our son with a child custody case. This case was so extensive and contained so much information that only an attorney as competent and skilled as Mark could handle it. It took 1 1/2 years to get it to trial and the result was a complete success. Marks court room presence was unbeatable. The result was our Son getting Custody of his 2 children- something that almost never happens. Not hiring Mark would be a mistake- because the attorney you do hire may be facing Mark when your case gets to court.

Helped me with a difficult divorce
Mark, helped me with a very difficult divorce in 1986. I was young and a "basket case." I owned a business which the attorney from the other side thought my ex-wife was going to own. There was also a custody battle which worked out with a joint-custody agreement. It all worked out fine, with Mark saving me a lot of money in the settlement and attorney fees. My ex spent four times more on attorney fees than I did and received exactly what I offered her the day before I filed. Thanks to Mark everyone was treated fairly. 30 years later, I am still grateful for his help.

Mark Hardig was my amazing Lawyer! Thank you so very much!
Mark worked extremely hard in my case, it was an international case that came with its own set of difficult challenges... I would recommend Mark to anyone with a strong sense of knowing that he would go above and beyond expectations... Mark got me two and a half times my expectations in settlement... I will be forever grateful to Mark! I trusted Mark with my life, he was extremely professional, patient and kind... Mark coached me in this area of my life that was completely foreign to me. I just cant thank Mark enough! I feel compelled to write this review so others may benefit from Marks years of experience, hard work and dedication! I wouldn't hesitate to refer, recommend or have Mark as my lawyer in any case... I recognize the hours that must go into preparing for court and the details that must be in place.... I feel so grateful that Mark is extremely competent and well versed in his area of expertise... I was kept well informed by himself and his employee, Karen... they have great team work... I must congratulate Mark on his great ability to choose such a hard working, dedicated and personable employee such as Karen.. I felt well received and heard... Mark gets gold stars for his excellent performance as my lawyer and professionalism, as well as his constant ability to keep me on track... divorce is an emotional roller coaster, Mark had the ability to keep conversation moving forward.... Thank you so much Mark for all your hard work and time put into my case! Mark, you are a true professional with the right amount of empathy and understanding, to make the inexperienced person such as myself feel at ease and knowing I'm in good hands!! Thank you for everything!

Hard-Working and Knowledgeable
Mr. Hardig is a dedicated lawyer who researches the law and is devoted to his clients' interests. He has very good courtroom skills. He represented me in an OVI (DUI) and got the best possible result, and then was able to get my occupational driving privileges.

Worth hiring to handle your case. Period.
Attorney Mark Hardig has been my attorney over the last ten years. He is extremely knowledgable and knows exactly how to handle even the most difficult of situations. He is realistic, honest, direct, and passionate about what he does. I would highly recommend him, and have done so numerous times. My divorce case unfortunately, has had me calling on Attorney Mark Hardig's assistance more frequently than anyone would like to do so, and he is ready and willing to help anytime I call. He has gone above and beyond for myself and my children and has not once disappointed me, always coming out on top at the end of each situation. I am truly grateful to him for all if his efforts and hard work.

Divorce/Child Custody Case
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this review relative to Mark Hardig and the excellent work and counsel he provided to me as I completed my divorce. Mark's keen experience afforded me the opportunity to dig deeper and explore every possible circumstance for the period of my divorce so that I would come out on the other end clean. Mark spent several hours educating and preparing me as each court date approached. Unfortunately, I was up for a custody battle for my thirteen year old daughter so the case went to litigation. Mark's truth and candor allowed me to: 1. Pay no child support 2. Pay no spousal support 3. Obtain residential custody with shared parenting for my daughter 4. Leave this divorce with a sense of dignity Additionally, Mark prepared all of the decrees that were satisfactory to both parties. He led the case with resilience through litigation. Mark was professional, compassionate and significantly thorough with my divorce. When you couple the characteristics above-it demonstrates Mark's exemplary professionalism. Again, I am very pleased with Mark Hardig's arduous and tedious work. I feel honored and thankful that he represented me. I'm confident with Mark's capabilities and without reservation-I would certainly recommend him to other individuals and to any case/litigation as he sees fit.
