Founding partner Jamie Hargrove developed the Hargrove Firm into one of the premier estate planning law firms in the U.S., with offices in multiple states and a nationwide network of attorneys. As one of the few attorneys who is also a CPA, his understanding of finance provides a useful perspective for innovative estate planning.
He was a pioneer in applying technology to legal services, creating his “First Step Planning” online service in 2012 to streamline the estate planning process. First Step Planning became the essential groundwork for the development of NetLaw, a breakthrough technology platform that automates the entire estate planning legal services process. Hargrove Firm is now the exclusive provider of estate planning legal services for the NetLaw platform.
Mr. Hargrove is a top “AV Preeminent” attorney, peer-rated by the Martindale-Hubbell system for legal ability and ethical standards. He has also received national recognition as a SuperLawyer and named to Best Lawyers in America. He was the first attorney in Kentucky to be recognized as an Accredited Estate Planning Attorney.
In 2014, Mr. Hargrove published his first book, entitled The End of Lawyers, Thank Goodness!: Estate Planning and the End of Inefficient Lawyers.
