Attorney Hardy now brings his legal experience, high ethics and legal knowledge to Hardy Law Group. He has been praised by clients for being thorough, efficient, proactive, knowledgeable and sensitive to client needs.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
updated on 01/08/2020
A reprimand is an order from the Statewide Grievance Committee after it has found that an attorney has engaged in ethical misconduct. If an attorney receives more than 3 reprimands in 5 years, a presentment must be filed against the attorney so the Superior Court can decide if more serious discipline should be ordered.
James' comment:“Unfortunately, my office needed to seek outside assistance of counsel in helping a client file an appeal regarding a CP matter. I took the role of assisting this mother of two, who's children were removed from her care by the DOCF. Though doing my best to assist the client in filing the appeal, it was not filed in a timely manner and with that I take sole responsibility. These consequences are not something that interfere with or reflect on my ability to represent my clients at the highest level”
