Endorsements

I meet Atty. Hardy while doing business with Axley. Dan Hardy is by far the most thoughtful, knowledgeable and dedicated Real Estate and Estate Planner I have ever worked with. He prepared our wills and compared to our previous wills, we now feel totally comfortable in the event something should happen to my wife or myself. Atty. Hardy gets my highest recommendation!
