It's our Anniversary!
Ten years ago Matt decided it was time to hang a shingle. He opened our first office in Nashville with a briefcase and a paralegal.
That seems like a lifetime ago!
A decade has flown by as we've built a team of legal professionals, opened six offices, and developed relationships with thousands of you across Middle TN and Southern Kentucky.
While managing a growing firm, Matt and Janet have also added three beautiful children to their family, ages 10, 8, and 5. Talk about being busy! We rarely see the older ones, but we do have an occasional visit from their youngest, Vivi, who brings an overload of cuteness running up and down the halls delivering her latest artwork!
"It truly feels like family around here with so many of us
who have been here for over half of the past 10 years."
-Paralegal, Beverly Washington
As we pause to celebrate this milestone, we have been reflecting back on all of the heroes we've met along the way. We could write a book filled with your stories of strife and triumph. Stories about courage, hope, and healing. Stories about overcoming adversity that you weren't prepared for. Stories about keeping life together in the middle of chaos and crisis. Our clients are truly remarkable.
Some of you may remember in 1995 when Christopher Reeve, the original Superman was in an accident that changed his life forever. He said, "a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."
Just like you, Christopher pressed on and his heroic journey became bigger than anything Superman could have ever imagined.
This year we celebrate us, and we celebrate you.
* Throughout the year we will be adding client stories and testimonies to a new section on our website called, Hardin's Heroes. It would be our highest honor to share your story. You don't have to be a first responder or someone on the front lines. Hardin's Heroes are everywhere. If you would like to share your story, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
