    I've known Bart for many years, recommended him to my father for counsel, worked alongside him as a peer, am now at another firm and we remain colleagues that collaborate professionally and personally. He is bright, ethical, very hard working, has good judgment, and a great personality that is a testament to the profession and an example to others. He is also a great manager and mentor to others and is a real credit to the entire profession. He deserves the highest ratings.
