  • Thank you for all your help!

    “We sought Mr. Rainey to help to obtain a custody agreement for my child... He helped us achieve our goal and was open and honest in every answer he gave regarding my concerns. I had consulted with others who made it seem like some of my concerns were unwarranted and that some of my requests were totally unachievable but Mr. Rainey made me feel at ease and was able to explain things to me in a more 'caring' aspect even if the answer wasn't one I would've preferred to hear. I appreciate his methods and should we need to seek further representation I wouldn't think twice to retain him for my future needs! Thank you for all your help!”

    “I hired Rick Scott at Hartsoe & Associates for what proved to be a somewhat complicated divorce. He he was able to explain to me what I was legally entitled to, what the law required, what outcomes would be reasonable to expect, and what my options were along every step of the way. He worked hard to help develop a fair settlement offer. He is very knowledgeable and open to considering all possible solutions to a problem. Everybody in the office is responsive and courteous. I am glad that I chose to work with them and would recommend them to anyone who is unfortunately in need of a family lawyer”

    “James Downey from Hartsoe and assoc. represented me in a child custody and support case and was excellent to work with.

Lisa the paralegal was great along with Debbie at reception and everyone I encountered at Hartsoe.

  • I couldn't be happier in the outcomes of our case

    “I'm more than pleased with the hard work and dedication I received from them. Joe Schmitz of Hartsoe & Associates was magnificent in court and pushed his way through for us throughout our continuing battle. I couldn't be happier in the outcomes of our case. I'm glad that I chose Hartsoe & Associates from all the others in the Winston-Salem area and surrounding. I got every penny's worth.”

  • Tony and his team were with me through the most difficult time of my life.

    “Everyone I worked with at Hartsoe & Associates was of high moral caliber while also being very down to Earth and easy to talk to. After spending time with Tony and his associates, it was easy to see that Tony's character was the model for building his team. The outcome of my case was far better than I could have anticipated. Tony and his team were with me through the most difficult time of my life, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

  • Tony will always be the person/firm on which we rely.

    “Tony has represented me and members of my family for over 10 years and we have always been so grateful for his work. His concern for the client become obvious as does his wealth of experience which allows him to guide you effectively. He will tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. When my sister and I attempted to deal with my dad's bank, after his death, we were being simply taken advantage of! Despite our appears and offers to resolve the matter, we could not bring the matter to resolution. Tony took the matter and it was handled, to our satisfaction, quickly and without any negative impact to us. From traffic violations to tax and estate planning, Tony will always be the person/firm on which we rely.”
