    “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”

  • 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!”

  • 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.”

  • I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case

    “Tara Kay Johnson did an awesome job! If you're like me, you didn't think something like this would happen to you, but there you are at that moment in your life with a lot of questions and very few answers... doubt and emotion starts to take over, but fear not. As with many folks who have to go through this unfortunate event in your life, you want the strongest and most well-respected representation you can find. That is exactly what I received. Tara will listen to your concerns and stand up for you, while at the same time she will also recommend the absolute best course of action. I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case. During my case, there was not a single moment where I felt vulnerable or a moment where I wondered what the outcome would be. Tara and her very well-educated staff were with me every step of the way. Communication and support was excellent throughout the entire process. The bottom line is: If you or someone you know is heading down the tough road to divorce, then you need the BEST guide you can find, and that is Tara Kay Johnson.”
