Mr. Hart proved to be a very compassionate and honest ally. Brent's encouragement and hard work got me accepted into the Federal DREAM progam which saved me from serving a possible 10 year sentence.
Great attorney that I would recommend to anyone.

Brent did a great job representing us! We were extremely satisfied with Brent’s handling of our case! We were very pleased with the outcome; we prevailed!
Brent made us feel like we were a team. We felt a strong alliance with Brent. We knew we were in good hands from the day we met. We hold Brent in the highest regard. We consider him as a friend.
Brent was very open and honest with us. He took the time to explain the law as it pertained to the circumstances of our case. This helped us be objective about the matter, so that we could make our own rational determination of what was right, and that we had done nothing wrong. This was very important, as it gave us confidence throughout that we had a good chance of prevailing in the end.
Brent told us upfront that based on the facts as he understood them, we did not necessarily need or have to have an attorney; that we could represent ourselves on this matter, and still probably prevail. We appreciated his candor, but we wanted Brent to represent us. And happy that he obliged. It certainly eased the stress of handling the matter ourselves.
Brent really listened and took the time to gather and understand all the underlying facts and details of our case. He was very organized. He asked lots of questions, and continued to ask questions and gather more facts thru several e-mails exchanges leading up to our court date. This was all evident in the very detailed brief that he wrote and filed on our behalf. It was spot-on; comprehensive, concise, and accurate. Brent had all the bases covered.
Brent was mindful about legal costs on our behalf. He arranged to have a letter, written in Chinese, translated at no cost, even though we thought Google Translator was sufficient. He corresponded with us via e-mail on several occasions, as needed to gather more information leading up to our court date. Brent arranged with the opposing attorney to accept electronic service (by e-mail), which eliminated the need to have a service processor/courier serve the documents personally; all to save us money.
Brent did a fantastic job presenting our case to the court. We could not have done what he did. His demeanor was very professional. He was polite and well-spoken and kept his calm, even during tense situations. He was articulate in explaining the circumstances of our case to the court, as it related to the law. His methodology was very common-sense and practical. Any reasonable person knowing the law would have to agree with his supposition.
Thank you Brent! We sincerely appreciate all of the effort you put into our case. Our sincere best wishes in the future to you and your law firm.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Brent Hart for many years, and have co-counseled three cases with him. He is an intelligent and good-hearted attorney, with strong trial and negotiation skills. Brent is excellent at cross-examining expert witnesses and adept at presenting direct expert testimony. He gave an outstanding closing argument in one of the cases we tried together, and convinced more than half of the jurors to vote in our client's favor. Ultimately, through his efforts, our client won a dismissal of his case. If someone I cared about needed a good criminal defense attorney, I would recommend Brent.

Brent brings tremendous empathy and integrity to the representation of each of his clients. He takes the time to listen and work collaboratively with clients from all walks of life to advance their goals. Brent is also an extremely effective litigator in the courtroom and has reaped significant victories and favorable outcomes for many people through his unique efforts over the years. A significant portion of his practice is geared towards the representation of individuals who could not otherwise afford his services. I am honored to work with Brent as a law partner.
