  • Yale Lewis III

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Hart is aggressive and has a refreshing sense of humor. He tells it like it is. Having practiced family law for many years, he knows all of the local family law commissioners and most of the other family law attorneys. He knows the law. He is very good at getting a settlement Mr. Hart also takes personal injury clients. His cut-to-the-chase and aggressive style is well suited to that kind of work.

  • Leslie Jean Olson

    A client could not ask for a more committed lawyer than Rick Hart. He is a skilled advocate, who tenaciously advances his client's position. He is persuasive and reasoned in the courtroom, adding credibility to his clients' cases, and achieving marvelous results for them. Always, he keeps me on my toes, demanding of me my best skills to match his.
