I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it has been for me to work with you over the last several years in our various cases in different jurisdictions. You are one of the best attorneys that I have run across during my career.
-Louis C. Woolf, Woolf, McClane, Nashville, TN (Defense lawyer representing Chevron, BP, ExxonMobil)
I came to Hartley & O'Brien after my son was killed in a drilling accident. The lawyers and staff provided personal attention to my family and our case. They kept us updated on the progress of the case, and resolved it in a timely manner. The folks at Hartley & O'Brien made our loss more tolerable, as difficult of a task as that was.

The Court is familiar with Mr. Hartley's endeavors and abilities to prosecute toxic tort cases and to maximize recoveries for plaintiffs. The Court would be hard-pressed to ever say that Mr Hartley left money on the settlement table.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Tonianne J. Bongiovanni
This case was difficult to litigate. It involved complicated subject matter and required a great amount of attention to detail... Counsel demonstrated a significant amount of skill in prosecuting this case and the fact that they were able to obtain favorable results compared to other cases involving similar issues is a testament to their skill.
