Review update
We are from Wisconsin and it was difficult to know what lawyer to contact that was practicing where the incident took place. (A car repair gone bad in Clive, Iowa) After a few rough spots and some lost communication, John has been doing a great job keeping us informed and proceeding with this case. I had written a previous review about him not returning our calls/e-mail. This has been rectified and we are happy to be working with him.

never responded
We contacted attorney Hardy in April of 2017. We are from Wisconsin and needed a consumer protection lawyer licensed to practice in Iowa for an auto repair gone bad. After a few phone conversations, out information was faxed to Mr. Hardy and he even contacted our local mechanic who replaced the blown engine and repaired the initial problem. Since then we have tried to contact him by phone to no avail. I then tried to reach him through this site. He has not responded to any of our attempts.

Family Attorney | Aug 16
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"In the few years I've known John, he's been an outstanding member of our community and bar. He works hard for his clients, is very knowledgeable, and treats everyone he meets with respect. He mediated a family law matter for one of my clients, and even when it was obvious the parties would probably not come to an agreement, John was thorough, patient, and committed to looking at every route before calling it. Any client would be lucky to have John as an attorney, and any attorney would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with John."
