I was in need of hiring an attorney to defend my daughter in a criminal case. Not being from the area and realizing the fate of my daughter's future would rest in the hands of whomever I chose, I scoured the internet gathering information on attorneys in the Hays County area that could possibly defend her. I arranged consultations with 5 of the 8 attorneys I phoned. David Hardaway was the only attorney that would actually speak with me over the phone. That initial phone call lasted for over 30 minutes with David patiently and thoroughly answering all of my questions. He was the first attorney we met with. I was impressed with his sincerity and his knowledge of the law. Before leaving his office he made sure he had answered all of our questions. We walked out of there feeling confident all would be well.
We went on to meet with 4 other attorneys. After each consultation we discussed the pros and the cons of that attorney. We kept finding ourselves comparing each of them to David Hardaway. The other attorneys we met with did not seem genuine. They all seemed to project gloom and doom regarding my daughters case and lacked a "human" side to them. It was all very impersonally and seemed to be more about money then my daughter's future.
We confidently chose David Hardaway as our attorney. He offered his services at a reasonable fee. Was always available to answer my phone calls. At one point, I emailed him some questions I had forgotten to ask while on the phone and he returned my email that same day.
Within a week of hiring him, David met with the prosecutor and they dropped the case against my daughter!
I would not hesitate to recommend David Hardaway to anyone in need of a excellent criminal defense attorney!

I hired David to handle my custody case, he was definitely working hard for me during that process. He kept me informed about documents, court dates, and numerous items we had to get taken care of; then the unimaginable happened. I found myself in a situation I never thought I would be in, and was charged with a felony in an unrelated incident to the custody case. Lies from "witnesses" were stacking up against me, it was a no-brainer; David was the man I was going to trust with my life. I was facing prison time if convicted, I was worried I was going to lose more than just my children.
David not only allowed me to make payments to him, but never hounded me about the money. He worked very hard for me and ended this process within months; not years! This life changing event I encountered changed how I view people and who I trust, but I trust David with everything I have. If you find yourself jammed up, do yourself a favor and please go talk to him. He truly is a man who cares! And yes, that charge went away just as fast as it arrived, David got it expunged from my record and helped me through this process.
He would take my calls just to let me vent. He kept me informed with all of my legal matters and was eager to get both cases resolved as quickly as possible. I truly believe God blessed this man with several gifts; his talent as an attorney, his passion for family, and his service to the community are only a few of them.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I was David's opposing counsel on a very difficult family law matter. He is a very aggressive and knowledgeable attorney who fights zealously for his clients, yet maintains a professional demeanor that makes him a credit to his profession. I am, therefore, proud to enthusiastically endorse David Hardaway, a very reputable member of the Texas legal community.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
David is an aggressive and zealous advocate who works to very hard to obtain the best possible results for his clients. He is available to them when most other attorneys won't take client calls--people need help outside of just 9 to 5. These are just a few of the reasons I endorse this lawyer.
