This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension stayed means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.
Edwin’s comment: “The Bar found no client suffered any harm and the terms of the discipline basically just required the attorney to keep in compliance with record keeping rules. Attorney and the Bar disputed the record keeping practices of the attorney. Attorney and the Bar agreed for the attorney to change his record keeping practices and settled the matter without hearing.”

I am a creditor (Won small claims case) and the person owing me money filled for Bankruptcy. Well, I had no idea what to do to get my money that I was owed. So I found out that Edwin Hardy gave free bankruptcy legal advice. He donated about 30 minutes of his time to me and told me everything I needed to do in order to help my situation. He personally SHOWED me out to file a proof of claim and do all the paperwork online so I would be included in the bankruptcy settlement... He did it all FREE OF CHARGE! Awesome guy!
Donald Stroud, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse Edwin Hardy. I have know Mr. Hardy for over 25 years and have been on the opposite side of the courtroom from him on dozens of cases. He is always prepared and represents his clients well. I often refer cases to Mr. Hardy that I can not take myself. I know Mr. Hardy to be honest and a zealous advocate. Additionally, he has given much to him community personally and professionally.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. His integrity is impeccable and I have known him for 25 years. He has represented me, my family and friends with the most effective proficiency. I have seen him conduct numerous trials and he has won dozens of criminal jury trials in State and Federal court. He is THE go-to lawyer in this region of the State for any debt matters. He won an appeal in a business matter of mine before the N.C. Court of Appeals saving me over $30,000.00 after attorney fees, which his are very reasonable. Any Bankruptcy, Debt disputes/settlements, Criminal, Traffic, Divorce or Custody matters I would highly recommend you hire him.
