Awesome Attorney!
I met Earl in 2004 when he helped me win a very difficult Real Estate case. Earl’s tenacity on that particular case was amazing and today I’m still at awe with how he dug in and figured out the necessary steps to win. Since then, I have worked with Earl on other cases including Estate Planning and Probate and have been very pleased with his services. When hiring Earl you become part of the family because he truly cares about you and your situation. As a bonus, Earl has a great sense of humor!

Great Service!
My family has used Hargrave Law for over 10 years. We have had him review business agreements, real-estate contracts and create our wills. We can always count on him to be very thorough and forward thinking. He has moved his schedule around to accommodate ours when documents needed signed immediately.

Best Lawyer!!!
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.

Previous and current customer
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. Kristie

AVOID HIM, Failed me in matter related to real estate
In short, he charged us bunch of fees, and delivered Nothing. After he took the case, he just sat on it for weeks. Very poor communication skills. I actually had to get another attorney to get the matter resolved.
