Mr. Hardy was overly enthusiastic about parts of my case that I was not concerned. I did everything I could to work with him on the important parts that I wanted represented, and when we went to court, he kept focusing on the details he believed were important. HIs oversight of the parts I kept asking him to recall slipped. This made me very uncomfortable with his representation. As I knew, and I was right, that the judge was focused on the details he kept overlooking, which I strongly believe hurt my case. I lost.

Mr. Hardy represented me in a juvenile matter in the year 2006. He represented me in my custody hearing free of charge. He took the time to assist my family and explain to them how the hearing would be conducted. He was always very upfront about the process and the potential outcomes in my matter. He was very sincere with me and showed much interest in my case. I was only fourteen years old at the time and Mr. Hardy made me realize that I was on the wrong path. Not only did he give me the legal advice and representation I needed to resolve my matter in the most favorable fashion, but he was also a great counselor. He kept my family and me completely informed throughout the entire process and there were no surprises or disappointments as there are in other cases with other attorneys.
Because of his passion, diligence, empathy, persistence, dedication and compassion, I had the most favorable outcome in my case. It has been eight years since he represented me and today I am preparing to take the LSAT and become a law student myself. I have been an immigration paralegal for almost four years and I try to reflect Mr. Hardy's ethic and professionalism in my work at all times. Mr. Hardy is a great role model and professional who I will always be thankful for. God bless Mr. Hardy, his wife and family!
With much gratitude,

Mr. Hardy has completely won my support. I got in touch with Mr. Hardy to discuss some specifics regarding obtaining my weapons carry permit. Due to some mistakes I made when I was younger I was unsure of the outcome when applying for my carry permit, and owning a firearm. Mr. Hardy has been very informative and is clearly an extremely knowledgeable attorney. He has been willing to provide answers to all of my questions, and has made it clear to me that he will be doing everything he can to help me in this matter. I was unsure of the steps I needed to take to get everything in order to proceed with my predicament, and Mr. Hardy steered me in the right direction. It feels great to have such a admirable person in my corner with this matter. I can really tell that he is a genuine and professional person with a big heart and a great head on his shoulders. No matter what the outcome of my situation, I will never forget the generosity and dedication he has shown me.

Jim is a great attorney and an asset to the community. He spent a lot of time making calls and talking to the proper officials to help me with my case and I would hire him and recommend to others without reserve.
This man is incredible and has morals as well and will not accept your money unless his opinion is that it's a situation where you may benefit from an attorney's service.
I thank you Jim for all you did for me and may the angels smile upon you everyday as you make others day brighter.

Mr Hardy is like no other attorney I have ever met. He helped my family in the darkest time of our life. He is always available when you need him, he always returns calls, he always has time for your questions and your concerns. He took a horrible situation that my family found ourselves in and made it all okay again. Because of him, lies and false accusations were not believed and my child is home with me. I will never forget when I felt like the deck was stacked against me and my child, and it seemed like the odds were all against us, he said to me, "I will not abandon you". He meant those words and to this day he hasn't. Mr Hardy won our case, I really don't think I would have gotten as favorable an outcome if I had gone with another attorney. Mr Hardy also showed me that there are people out there that will see an injustice, they will see an innocent being attacked and they will fight for you just because its the right thing to do. That's James Hardy.
