Excellent Attorney, works hard for you
Ben is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He sets proper expectations, explains the process and what to expect. Ben was in constant contact and follow up was excellent. I had a traffic violation and Ben was able to have this dismissed. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, caring and helpful attorney that will do everything possible to achieve the best results possible. If I ever have another issue there is not another attorney I would call.

Ben will answer your phone call!
Ben is the only attorney to call if you need a criminal law attorney. He answered my call on a weekend and worked hard to resolve my case. When it was all said and done the case was dismissed and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. His rate was fair and HE always answered the phone, not a secretary or answering service like all the other lawyers I tried to contact. If you get a speeding ticket or dui, don't hesitate to call Ben asap!

The best!
One of my friends had been in a car accident and I immediately referred her to Ben! He took the case aggressively and was there every step of the way. He doesn't waste time on anything and is very responsive in a timely manner. He doesn't make you feel like your case isn't important. Every case is important to him and he treats all of them with priority! There is no one else I would reccommend but Ben!

Simply the BEST
I hired Ben after a recommendation from several friends. He takes complete charge of the situation from every angle & comes up with an unstoppable defense everytime I've had to use his services. He is honest, and if he can or can't help you, he will tell you upfront. I highly recommend him for traffic tickets, DUI defense, and personal injury. Simply the best.

Excellent Lawyer
Benjamin Hardwick was very professional and helpful with getting my speeding ticked completely taken care of in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

truly amazing servic and result
"I came to Ben when I as being sued by a large and powerful corporation for over $60,000.00 in Mecklenburg Superior Court. Ben stepped in and constructed a series of technical defenses that the opposing lawyer could not overcome. He did so in a calm and calculated manner with no showboating involved. The Company's lawyer dismissed the case against me on the eve of trial rather than fight us. Thanks Ben, you are a life saver!"

I was hurt and I'm so glad he took care of everything for me.
I had been injured in a car accident and the last thing I wanted to do was handle a ton of paperwork or go to court. I talked with Ben and he got right to work. He kept me informed and I never had to worry about anything. My job was to recover. Best of all he answered any question i had right away and got me a settlement I was very happy with. Thank you Ben for your service. I'll be using you from now on. Client for life.

Deeply knowledgeable, consistent
Ben helped not only me, but my family as well. He explained everything thoroughly and patiently, which ultimately kept us all at-ease. He maintains respect and takes full responsibility of the load of your case... Your case truly gets 100% of his attention.

DWI Case
Benjamin Hardwick represented me in a DWI case about a year ago and he was absolutely amazing. It was a very stressful time for me, and Ben was the best advocate I could have hoped for. He knows the law, and fought for me every step of the way. Because of Ben's intelligence, persistent diligence, and keen attention to detail he was able to get my case dismissed. He isn't like the other lawyers I spoke to, I could tell he genuinely cared. He gave me hope when I felt that I had none, and because of him, I have a second chance. I highly recommend Benjamin Hardwick to anyone facing DWI charges.

Glad he was recommended
Ben was recommended to me by my son for a speeding ticket that was considered reckless driving. I was very scared being it was my first ticket and I was going 20 mph over. But the process was simple. I didn't even have to go to court!! I left with it being dismissed!! Great Job Benjamin!!! Great Price too!!!

Wonderful and Effective Attorney
Last year I hired Attorney Hardwick and I couldn't be happier with my decision. He worked hard for my case. A DWLR. He counseled me into getting my driving license back and my charges were dropped. He was very quick and effective. I would recommend him to anyone seeking counsel in the areas which he offers. Many people I know have used him and everyone has always been pleased. His name isn't known in Charlotte as a great lawyer for no reason. He really does get the job done. I'm forever thankful for his help.
