"Hart David Carson is a top-notch firm with a track record of success. Jonathan Herpy and Joel Funk are both highly skilled attorneys with a knack for solving problems in an efficient manner. The breadth of their practice areas allows them to service a broad range of clients and their attorneys vary in specialty, ensuring clients receive exceptional representation in any of the firm's practice areas. I would recommend them."

– Mark S. (Chicago, IL)

– Jael B. (Chicago, IL)


"I know I know the joke.... We're do you find 45,000 lawyers? At the bottom of the sea.... Ha ha until you meet Joel! Honestly and let me repeat that! Honestly!!!! This guy and his firm is legit! Not your average lawyer. These guys are Honest! Very worthy! They are little investigators and will find out what is wrong. They specialize in high profile and also probate cases! Client for life!!!!"

– Janet T. (Downers Grove, IL)


"A firm with character and heart!!! They care. We were taken with open hearts and open minds when we looked for our special needs trust."

– Daniel B. (Aurora, IL)


"Honestly, couldn't have asked for better representation. I had an probate issue, which is a touchy subject to begin with, and this firm handled it with care and understanding. I am also an owner of a small business in Downers Grove and am having them handle the in-house legal for that as well. Thanks guys!"

– Shawn G. (Willowbrook, IL)


"Creating a family trust isn't easy. I know because this is the second time I've done it and the experience was so much better in the capable hands of Hart David Carson. If you've been putting it off because it seems like too much work, or seems too complicated, call him and get it done. I personally worked with Joel and Jonathan, and their staff is a pleasure to work with, and you'll be amazed at how helpful and understanding they are. They makes the complicated easy to understand and they are a gentle guide taking you through all the intricacies of how to structure your estate. Mine was on the complicated side, but they made it easy. My wife and I both knew from the first moments with them that we had found the right resource and we're sure you're going to feel the same way. Not just a nice guys, but a brilliant guys. You know that kind of combination is rare. I would recommend Hart David Carson to anyone who needs this kind of planning for the future (be sure to ask specifically for either Joel or Jonathan as they are both in high demand). And guess what, we all do. Call them and get it taken care of!"

– Jacki N. (Downers Grove, IL)


"I was looking for an attorney to help with putting together an estate plan that would make sense for my life. One of my relatives recommended Mr. Herpy's services and I set up an appointment to visit his Downers Grove office location. The receptionist (I think her name was Sara) was warm and helpful in finding a convenient time to come in on short notice. The office environment was friendly and comfortable. As for the services, he recommended that I create a living will as well as set up some trusts for my wife/children in order to avoid probate issues. I HIGHLY recommend this law firm, if your looking for that high end service, reasonable prices, and customized client experience of a boutique practice."

– Robert M. (Downers Grove, IL)


"Hart David Carson was exactly the kind of relationship I was looking for. They talked me through every step of my process while explaining it to me at a level I understood. I had a trust and bond with both Jonathan and Joel that I I could not have found anywhere else. I 100% recommend them to anyone seeking a lawyer. I am fortunate for all their help, and could not have asked for anything more from these two professionals."

– Anthony A. (Woodridge, IL)


"As an attorney, I have nothing but respect for the work of Jonathan Herpey and Joel Funk of Hart David Carson. Initially, Herpey and I were opposing counsels in a breach of contract matter, fighting and arguing for the position of our respective clients. However, it was during that intense negotiation that I came to truly respect the attorneys of Hart David Carson because while a strong advocate for his client, Herpey was also a constant professional. After our matter settled, I came to know Jonathan Herpey and Joel Funk on a personal level. Today, they are on my speed-dial for real estate closings and land trust work. I have also consulted them for incorporating different businesses I now represent in Chicago because Herpey and Funk are spot-on with their knowledge of business representation, which has saved me a bunch of time as an attorney and my clients a bunch of legal fees. I sincerely endorse the work of the attorneys at Hart David Carson. In the legal community, they say there is no better sign of trust than sending referrals to another attorney because you are trusting him to handle matters associated with your name. That is the case with Hart David Carson. I have sent my clients to their firm for help with real estate, land trusts, and business matters because they are competent, fast, and not afraid to go the extra distance for clients. They are able to handle so many matters competently because they also have a great staff, which is headed by their office manager, Sara. She is professional, yet personable, which makes it very easy to work with their law firm. The attorneys of Hart David Carson are great legal advocates and hard-working guys, honestly."

– Anthony V. (Chicago, IL)


"Jonathan is a truly exception lawyer. He genuinely cares about his clients and provides top quality legal assistance for a very reasonable fee. He is knowledgeable, efficient, and dedicated attorney, making the legal process a much less daunting journey. I would recommend him to anybody who is seeking legal assistance."

– Carl F. (Weirton, WV)


"Big city firm feel in a quaint, Chicago suburb! These guys are top notch. Whether you need quick advice or someone to stand up for you in a messy court battle, these lawyers will always be my Go-To. Having grown up in a family of lawyers it's hard for me to seek legal council from anyone other than my own, but both Jonathan and Joel have earned my trust throughout the time I've known them. Always willing to fight for what's fair, you will be in great hands with either one of these fellas."

– Marlow M. (Naperville, IL)


"As new business owners we were in search of legal business representation in our local area. We came upon Jonathan and Joel from Hart David Carson and felt a comfortable and immediate fit at our first meeting. They assisted us with our preliminary business set up needs by demystifying the sometimes overwhelming matters we were in need of assistance handling. We intend to continue working with Hart David Carson going forward as our local business grows. Utilizing Hart David Carson's services to secure and protect our business and personal matters & assets only makes sense to us! We recommend you consider doing the same!"

– Jacki D. (Woodridge, IL)


"The firm of Hart David Carson were really knowledgeable in helping me set up my trust and will. every step was properly layer out to me and was made easy for me to understand. I definitely recommend Hart David Carson to help you with all of your existing legal issues."

– Mike G. (Chicago, IL)


"I would like to thank Hart & David for the exceptional work on my case. A journey that began with uncertainty and fear has come to closure with appreciation and confidence. I will never forget the patience and transparency that you have practiced throughout the settlement process. The explaining of every detail and scenario beforehand, making yourself available through multiple communication channels for any questions that I have had. Professionalism at its highest pinnacle is what I have experienced at Hart & David. I highly send my recommendation to any person who wants the best representation from one of the most distinguished lawyers in the Chicago-Metro area. Again I want to say thank you to Hart & David for being there throughout my legal process."

– Marc C. (Hickory Hills, IL)


"I contacted Hart & David law firm after a colleague of mine recommended them regarding his mortgage foreclosure defense. I had a similar matter that I was dealing with and had not had a great experience with my previous attorney. Long story short, from start to finish these guys were great. Very professional and honest in their approach, not to mention the whole thing was taken care of immediately. Not that I'm welcoming another occasion where I'll need a lawyer, but if necessary I won't hesitate in going back to H&D."

– Winston F. (Chicago, IL)
