Hare Wynn is in its second century of representing plaintiffs. All those years of experience may explain why, in an era of vanishing jury trials, we continue to win significant jury verdicts for our clients.

Our values stem from the satisfaction of helping one client at a time. For us, the practice of law is more than a business model, it is our calling.
Our firm takes great pride in representing not just the victims of nursing home and elder abuse, but their families as well. We believe that as our population continues to age, nursing homes and other facilities should be able to sufficiently provide for the needs of their residents. Our loved ones deserve proper and attentive care, and it is our deepest passion to ensure that those who have not been treated the way they should, receive the compensation they deserve for the injustices they have experienced.

"I'm sorry it has taken me a week to send you an email but I have been trying to find the right words to express my gratitude for all you and Matt did. Saying thank you just doesn't seem sufficient enough. Both of you believed in my dad's case and fought so hard to keep it going. When I met with Chad and Ashley in the beginning I told them I wanted to best people on this and they didn't let me down. When they told me about your firm I started researching it and quickly realized they had gotten the best. The past 22.5 months since dad's passing have been so hard and seemed like a blur at times just wanting justice for him. All I ever wanted was justice for him and peace knowing I fought hard for him. The two of you took his case and I felt like you took a personal approach to it, you knew they caused his death and you fought so hard to prove it and I am forever grateful. I know that without the weight the name of your firm carries and Matt's reputation last Monday would of not been possible. I am so thankful to you for helping me get to a point of peace, something I haven't felt since he passed away. I believe God calls people to certain jobs and you both are doing what he called you to do. From the bottom of my heart thank you, thank you for not giving up, for always being honest and being realistic with me, I am forever grateful."
