Jamie Hargrove Founding Partner

Hello, I am Jamie Hargrove, an Attorney and CPA. It was almost 8 years ago when I spun my practice out of a 160- attorney law firm where I lead their estate & trust practice for almost 9 years. Today, Hargrove Firm continues to evolve from a regional practice in Louisville, Lexington and Nashville to a national presence with the continued focus in Estate Planning, Business Succession Planning, Probate, Trust Administration and related Tax matters.

The Firm has offices in multiple states and over the years in as many as in 23 states with over 30 attorneys. In 2012, I was Privileged to have my practice be the recipient of the American Bar Association eLawyering award for the best online delivery of legal services of any law firm, of any discipline, in the United States. The technology behind the online delivery of legal services is now developed and marketed by NetLaw (www.NetLawInc.com), a company I co-founded.

At its current local offices, Hargrove Firm handles matters of all sizes in its areas of expertise. Nationally, our focus across the country is sophisticated estate and tax planning strategies for high net worth families, to include income and business tax saving strategies, business succession planning, and overall asset protection and preservation strategies.

For a period, I slowed down to author a book and provide insight from my endeavors and experiences, composing "The End of Lawyers, Thank Goodness! Estate Planning and the End of Inefficient Lawyers". If you are interested in a copy, please reach out to me, or it is also available on Amazon in hardback, Kindle & Audiobooks.

My ability to provide a larger prospective view and services, bringing additional value to my clients, stems both from facets of Accounting and Law. I am the only attorney and CPA in Kentucky to be designated as an accredited estate planner by the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils. I have been included in numerous editions of The Best Lawyers in America® and have been selected as one of the Best Lawyers in Trust & Estates Law by my peers, as published in "The American Lawyer". I was also recognized nationally as a SuperLawyer®, a national listing of outstanding lawyers who have attained the highest degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

My desire is to share the opportunities and many privileges that I have experienced, and I would love to extend these academic and professional successes to you.
