About James Hardy

About me

James E. Hardy, II is a life-long resident of Georgia.  His father had a successful law practice for fifty-three years prior to his passing in 2003.  Despite his "legal DNA", Jim pursued a career as an educator and coach combined with serving his country in the United States Marine Corp  before making an independent decesion to attend Law School.


Mr. Hardy earned his BBA in Management from the University of Georgia, where he also worked toward his Masters in Education (just a few more hours to go).  He is a member of the Alpha Mu chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha at the University of Georgia.  Mr. Hardy is a 1986 Magna Cum Laude graduate of Woodrow Wilson College of Law, where he was a member of the Law Review.  After his Juris Doctor degree in Law, Mr. Hardy earned his Master of Laws in Litigation in 1987.  Mr. Harxdy has been "Defending You and Your Children Since 1986".


After being mentored by his late father and Donald W. Gettle, Esquire for two + years, Mr. Hardy moved to Cumming, Georgia to open his own law practice where he specialized in Civil, Criminal and Juvenile litigation.  As time went on, Mr. Hardy's love of Constitutional Law, the preservation of our Constitutional rights, and the desire to make a diffeerence in the lives of youthful/juvenile offenders, narrowed his practice to Criminal and Juvenile Defense.
