PHIL HARDING, J.D. IS THE FINEST ATTORNEY IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF COLORADO!
I UNEQUIVOCALLY RECOMMEND ATTORNEY PHIL HARDING! HE HAS ASSISTED ME ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS AND HAS BEEN THE MOST INTELLIGENT, KINDEST AND HARD-WORKING ATTORNEY THAT I HAVE EVER HAD HE PLEASURE OF RETAINING!
Posted by CHELE | August 16, 2013
Phil Harding is unequivocally one of the finest attorneys in Colorado; I wholeheartedly recommend him.
Phil Harding, the recipient of numerous accolades and awards during his twenty-plus years of practice (including Life membership in the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum; his long-standing recognition as a "Super Lawyer" (2012-2013, current); and his inclusion in Colorado's"Top Trial Lawyers" for the past four years, excels in his profession. Clearly, Attorney Harding is dedicated to the scholarly and practical pursuits of justice. For example, he is current in his field--creative, well-versed; and unerringly professional. Accordingly, Phil Harding is a brilliant legal mind. Moreover, Phil Harding is a man of compassion and integrity . He is an unflinching Advocate for his clients, for whom he represents with an innate passion, skill, and finesse that reveals the empathetic individual imbuing the intellectually rigorous litigator . As one client reviewer notes, Attorney Harding"contacted me within minutes after I first got in touch with him." My experience as Phil Harding's client is strikingly similar--as I suspect so many of his clients' narratives are. Attorney Harding avails himself to each client on a continual basis of 24/7. His responsiveness and unerring familiarity with the most minute details of my case are greatly reassuring. When one's health greatly diminishes, whether it be suddenly or progressively, a seasoned attorney possessing compassionate sensibilities understands the complexities of such a loss and the consequential loss of identity and Voice and a grave sense of disempowerment that diminished health--and its very real struggles--that are bound to arise. Attorney Harding 's experience, knowledge, responsiveness, and the very real commitment he brought to every aspect of my case testifies to Phil Harding's deft ability to prioritize--and personalize--my case at all times, despite what I suspect must be a demanding case load. He always treated me with the utmost dignity and respect. Moreover, unlike other firms, Phil speaks directly to each client, rather than assigning a Case Manager in order to better communicate and facilitate stated objectives and needs. Last and most important, Attorney Harding does not inundate his clients with an exhaustive array of redundant, frivolous documents to be completed by the client. As always, when he and I spoke (with responsive regularity), I knew I had chosen the best attorney to faithfully serve as my Advocate, as my Voice, when i most desperately needed one the most. Moreover ,Phil Harding's representation enabled me to get on with the process of adapting to my "new life" and the very real challenges ahead of me. In short , Attorney Harding's pursuit of justice; his dedication to rectifying unjust wrongs; his commitment to his clients; and his empathetic professionalism indicate that in every sense, Phil Harding is a man of integrity, and a prince among his peers.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Phil Harding called me in on a wrongful death illegal sale of liquor case to represent a plaintiff who was underrepresented. (This is known as a "Dram Shop" case. It was Neyer et al. v. Warehouse Liquor Mart, No. 01-CV-3399, Arapahoe County District Court, Colorado>) Phil had one plaintiff family and I had another. When we finished the trial, the jury awarded $3 million dollars to the families we represented. I have worked with Phil on numerous other Personal Injury matters and have found him to be insightful, analytically rigorous, thorough and a creative attorney in his approach to difficult cases. He is clearly in the top tier of Personal Injury attorneys in Denver, Colorado."
