Attorney Profile

Thank you for visiting my website.  My name is Jim Hart and I am the founding attorney here at The Hart Law Firm.  I first opened my own law practice in Florida in 2005 and relocated to North Carolina in 2009.  I am licensed to practice law in both North Carolina and Florida.

My estate planning and elder law practice is based in Cary, North Carolina – but I accept cases from clients throughout Wake, Durham and Orange Counties.

I have intentionally limited the size of my practice so that I can provide personal attention to each and every one of my clients.  In addition, in an effort to cut costs and expenses for clients, I run a paperless office – all of my files are stored electronically with several backups in place for added security.

Here are some of the matters that we can help you with:

  • Providing peace of mind to you and your family members through custom-drafted Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorney
  • Helping you or your loved ones pay for nursing home care without draining their life savings
  • Kids Emergency Action Plans
  • Legacy Planning
  • Special Needs Planning
  • Probate and Guardianship Proceedings
  • Trust Administration
  • Medicaid Planning
  • Business Succession Planning

If you would like to schedule a short call with me to determine whether we would be a good fit for your needs, click here to pick a time, or you can call our office directly at (919) 883-4861. For a limited time, we are waiving the planning fee (currently $350) for the first 8 appointments each month – so call today to learn more and get on my calendar.

I am committed to forming an organization where client satisfaction is fundamental.  I believe that to achieve such a high level of satisfaction, the client must always be fully informed about their case and the choices available to them.

Personal Interests

My wife, Donna, and I moved to North Carolina from Florida in 2009 looking for a better quality of life to raise our children, which right now consists of our son Charlie, daughter Sophie, other son Henry, one dog (for now – down from a high of 4) and our 5 lazy and spoiled cats.

We love North Carolina and are proud to call this state home.  When we’re not working or caring for the kids, we enjoy taking advantage of the many outdoor activities that are available, including hiking, golfing and tennis.  We also enjoy scuba diving, walking our dog, and visiting with friends.

If you would like more information about me or my Firm, feel free to contact us at (919) 883-4861, or fill out our online form. We look forward to serving you.
