I trusted attorney James the first moment I talked to him. I was charged with criminal trespassing and Mr James explained to me the different scenario that I could fall into from the best scenario to the worst scenario. Mr. James ended my case with the best scenario possible, so glad :)
I hired Mr. Hardy for a misdemeanor traffic offense. I called him during the weekend a day before my court date, and he returned my call immediately. He took care of my case and he did a great job. Very professional, fast and efficient. My case was dismissed, and I’m very satisfied with Mr. Hardy services. I would highly recommend James Hardy.
I hired Mr. Hardy when I was arrested at school for covering up a smoke detector. Being a first time offender I was very anxious to see what would happen, but when I called Mr. Hardy from the very beginning he was straight up with me and told me everything would be fine. And just like that it was. Mr. Hardy took care of everything and gave me the result that I wanted. Very happy with my experience.
Attorney James Hardy was a great help with our accident case in Norwalk, CT. He explained the process and advised us what documentation to provide. He represented us before the court officers and the judge. He kept us personally out of court. Case dismissed.
Attorney James Hardy is the best attorney I’ve worked with. Hopefully I won’t need him again for a criminal case but I will be using him again in the future. He was knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns and eased any anxiety I had during my case. He made sure I knew exactly what was going on each step of the way. I was confident walking into the court room with him. Unlike other attorneys out there, he was easy to talk to and always responded back, even with a simple text. I’m so so grateful for Attorney James Hardy!!!
I am not one to write to many reviews, but every once in a while you have an experience warrants sharing. A number of my family got into some legal problems about 6 months ago. It was a very difficult situation for the family. We scoured the Internet to find an attorney to help us through this most challenging time. We found about 5 different attorneys on AVVVO whose profile and reviews seemed to fit our needs. After talking with all 5 over the phone we met with three. After meeting Mr. Hardy, however, we felt like this was the person who could really help us. We left our first meeting with Mr. Hardy (or James, as he insists we refer to him) with a whole new perspective on the case. Unlike the meeting with the other attorneys, we felt as though Mr. Hardy understood what we were going through, and without making any promises of any specific outcome, made us feel as though we were in the best hands. One of the great things was that, unlike the other attorneys, Mr. Hardy made it clear that money should not prevent us from getting the best representation and reviewed options with us to pay. Beyond empathy, however, his clarity of purpose and direction for how he would handle the case was really reassuring. On top of this, the cost for his services were very reasonable compared to the other attorneys we met. Mr. Hardy took us through the case and got us the best possible outcome. It’s been a huge sigh of relief for my family. Fast-forward 6 months; I again hired Mr. Hardy to handle another legal matter. He again handled the case with the greatest professionalism and efficiency. Before you know it, case finished! Thank you sir! Highlights: 1. Communication (he’s always available by cell phone or will get back to you ASAP) 2. Knowledgeable and Dedicated to getting the best result! 3. Understanding and reassuring 4. Affordable

He was correct he got the charges dropped my fiancé and I are able to move on with our life and be happy he awesome so professional knows exactly what's he's doing I would suggest hiring him everything thank you James hardy !
I was involve in a situation that could have left me open to extreme consequences. As soon as I met Hardy and explained the situation, I was immediately relieved. He went to bat for me in court and through his diligence and professionalism I walked away I'm a better position than I was in day one. So thankful to have been referred to Hardy..I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.
I got myself into some very bad and embarrassing trouble with the police. Asked to have an appointment with Mr James Hardy. I was afraid of ending up in jail and loosing my family. As soon as I stepped in to his office he gave it to me straight and made me feel calm, secure and kept everything confidential. Didn't have to lift a finger though out the case. As soon as I new it was done. I couldn't have hired anyone better besides being very professional he is very friendly also. Could asked for a better lawyer. Thank you James
Attorney James Hardy was the answer to my prayers. He was extremely professional and courteous throughout my entire experience with him. He stated right from the begging the legal stipulations of my situation, the probable outcomes and ensured that my case would end in my favor. He knew the laws very well and explained them to me so that I could understand every possible outcome. I could not recommend a better defense attorney.
Nobody wants to be involved in a criminal case, however I landed in one. It was a problem that seemed impossible to get out of . I went on my knees and prayed and James came into my life at a crucial moment. He listened to my case, analyzed it, didn't give me any scary predictions. The man is the real deal. As I sat in court with him, I kept thinking if he gets us out of this, man will I write a killer review! but honestly no words can do Mr. Hardy's skills justice. This is my first ever review about a lawyer. He doesn't need you, you need him! If he takes your case- sleep well. He will get you out of the mess. He is kind, professional and not greedy . His interaction with the detectives, prosecutor and judge shows you he is a pro! Everyone likes the man. I thank G-d for putting this amazing lawyer in our lives. If your family reads this, they should know you are a gem in the field and be very proud of you!
Resourceful and Effective
After a traumatic OUI accident, I was facing a felony charge and 5 years in prison. Attorney Hardy was empathetic, dilligent and and resourceful. Leveraging his experience in the courts and knowledge of the law, he was able to secure a positive outcome from a nightmare scenario. I greatly appreciate attorney Hardy’s help and thank him for a tremendous performance.
Hardy is a phenomenal Lawyer! Hardy is very well educated along side his representation that was always exceptional. I would Highly recommend his services to those in need. His fees are reasonable and he was flexible with me as a client. I went through a list of lawyers before I found Hardy. After speaking with him in person I felt incredibly reassured that he would be the best lawyer for me and my case.
5 Star Attorney!
From the very beginning Attorney James Hardy showed his expertise in law. He explained my probable outcomes and reassured me until the very end that he would work hard to get me the best one, and that he did. Mr. Hardy's diligence resulted in my charges being dropped and he did so with much professionalism and care, answering each and every question I had along the way immediately whether through call or text. For a fast and smooth process with the best results, I highly recommend Mr. Hardy and would hire him again in a heart beat!
Very professional and knowledgeable lawyer
My family and I were fortunate to obtain legal services from James Hardy a few months ago. He is very professional and thorough. He guided us through our legal issues with compassion and skills. He also took time to explain the legal aspects to us and assured us that all would be well. We appreciate that he treated us with dignity and respect. We were satisfied with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Hardy to anyone. We cannot thank you enough!
Gifted and Compassionate Attorney
My son who has a mental disorder and no record was inappropriate in a police lobby and they really threw the book at him with 2 exaggerated felony charges and no consideration of his obvious disorder. (No injuries or damage resulted from his actions.). This was new territory for our family and our inexperience led us to initially take the advice of the public defender’s office to not bail our son out so a psych evaluation could be done right away by the court. After several more days of no word, many unreturned calls and agonizing worry, I realized I needed someone on our side and I spent several hours researching local attorneys. By the end of the afternoon we had Atty Hardy on our side and it was like night and day! He instantly calmed our worst fears and we had our son back soon after. While awaiting his court date, James explained the diversionary program to us and worked very hard for us. He reviewed decades of doctor reports and presented the case expertly so that our son was accepted and now has the opportunity to get all the charges dismissed. We couldn’t be happier with James and are so very grateful for his help with our son. I highly recommend him as he leaves no stone unturned in providing the most capable defense.
We all have to find what we're made for.. Hardy is made for this!
I contacted hardy after being arrested for a terrible crime I didn't commit. Even with a lack of evidence, the state fully persude this case because of my status as a probationer. Being on probation stacked the odds against me. It makes it easy in states like ct to get easy convictions. We fought the case for a long time untill finally we made it to the probation trail. And guess what? The state had a few tricks up their sleeve! They called a surprise witness the day of. Hardy and I were given no chance to evaluate new evidence and were forced to face the trial that day. Even as a man of faith, it was easy in this situation for me to be afraid and not have confidence in my chances given the new circumstances. But guess what?? I was wrong! Hardy began destroying states witnesses left and right. Even with the surprise witness hardy, on the spot, was able to get amazing results. The questions he asked led that witness right to the dismantling of the states whole case. Preparation is great but his quick wit and natural intelligence is the reason I'm a free man today. I thank God I met james hardy. My family and I Thank you
Skilled and professional lawyer
I found Mr. Hardy on avvo.com for my boyfriend who was facing some serious charges. Mr. Hardy was honest with possible outcomes, unlike some others who tried to exagurate the case in order to charge a lot more. He explained everything thoroughly and delivered the best possible outcome. We could not be more greatful and happy to have found him. I would highly recommend him to anyone, as well as hire him in a heart bit should I ever need a lawyer.
A few months ago I was seeking legal representation for my husband who was facing some serious criminal charges. I was searching all available resources and Attorney Hardy seen my online inquiry and reached out to me. He was very professional, attentive and knowledgeable. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. He was very honest about the possible outcome of my husband's case and what he could do. Attorney Hardy represented my husband and we are happy with the verdict.
Best attorney in CT!
I called Hardy Law Group and Mr. Hardy reached out the following morning. I explained my situation and instantly felt relieved after speaking to him. He reassured me that my case would be dropped and he did just that. Mr. Hardy took care of absolutely everything and was available at all hours to answer my questions. After our first conversation, he immediately started working on my case. He is extremely honest and I am beyond grateful I found Mr. Hardy. He is a dedicated attorney that cares about his clients and will go the extra mile for them. I highly recommend Hardy Law Group.
I called James when I had outstanding misdemeanor charges from 7 years ago come up on a background check. There was a warrant out for my arrest, and I needed to have this situation resolved ASAP in order to keep a job I was just offered. Needless to say, I was worried! James got right to work, he immediately filed the necessary paperwork with the court and got the ball rolling. After only two court dates, all charges were dropped! This was no small feat, considering I had an outstanding warrant for seven (!!!) years! Throughout the whole process, James was very reassuring (while remaining realistic about possible outcomes, next steps, etc.) and patient with me, I reached out to him quite often through texts and phone calls, and he was always very responsive. I was able to retain the job that was offered to me, and I now have no criminal record whatsoever, all thanks to James. Beyond all of that, James is just a nice person who clearly cares about his clients and their success. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney, he is excellent!
Professional, Honest, Positive Attitude, Great Attorney
I was charged with Dui after getting into a multi car accident with minor injuries. It was my first time getting in any kind of trouble with the law so I was upset with myself and very nervous about the possible consequences. After checking reviews from lawyers in the area I decided to hire Mr Hardy and I am so thankful that I did. Right from the start he assured me everything was going to be Ok and told me he would get me into a program in which charges would be dropped after a yr. Given the nature of my incident I did not think I had any chance of getting offered the program but Mr Hardy worked his magic and did exactly what he told me he would do from the start and convinced the court to give me the program. If I ever find myself in trouble again Mr Hardy will be the first person I call. Thank you Mr Hardy!
Mr. Hardy returned my call immediately and during that conversation it was immediately clear that he was very personable. His confidence matches those of much older lawyers despite his youth, but with results to back it up. During my experience he was always responding to phone calls or texts at any hour of the day. I would certainly recommend him to anybody. He had my case dismissed and saved me from 30 days of jail time + felony on my record. As a young man chasing my dreams, that kind of record would have destroyed any future professional endeavors. He literally saved my future.
Best Of The Best!
We Hired Mr.Hardy to represent my son in an incident that occurred at a university. He is an honest, reasonable and a top notch attorney. Always returned my emails and phone calls at all hours of the day. Was able to get the job done and got us the results we wanted without my son having to attend court. If you have any problems at any university I highly recommend James Hardy. We are so grateful to have chosen one of the best.

Honest and Professional
I had needed a lawyer and reached out to attorney James Hardy. I had made the right decision. Soon after meeting Mr.Hardy and explaining my situation, he walked me through the process and the possible outcomes of the situation. When we went to court Mr.Hardy handled my case with great effort and diligence, doing so he managed to get the best possible outcome. During the process, attorney Hardy was quick to respond to my messages and did an outstanding job to answer any legal questions I had. Furthermore, I had asked for his legal help on another matter, instead of insisting that I needed a lawyer, he talked me through it since he did not want to charge me for services that I did not need. I truly appreciated the honesty. Attorney James Hardy is a lawyer that I would highly recommend due to his professionalism, honesty, friendliness, and overall effectiveness.

Best Lawyer in Fairfield, Westport , Darien
My legal issues began in January of this year (2016) and for over four months I was represented by a court appointed attorney who swore before God himself that she was unable to convince the prosecutors office or the judge that I deserved anything less then TWO YEARS of incarceration for my FIRST offense of Reckless Driving. I'm legally employed full time, one semester away from obtaining my degree in college and I haven't been in trouble with the law for over 9 years. I couldn't fathom accepting such a plea deal. After observing Attorney Hardy handle another case in court one day I decided to reach out to him and after a brief conversation I knew this guy was the lawyer for me. He was warm, friendly, honest, approachable and extremely knowledgeable of the Stamford Superior Court System. In just TWO short weeks he was able to secure a term of probation with NO jail time. To say that I was relieved wouldn't begin to exapress how I felt. I was completely flabberghasted that he was able to manage in just two short weeks what my previous attorney couldn't seem to do with over 4 months of court dates. On top of all of this he was also extremley affordable, I actually would not have even minded having to pay more for his services; that's just how good he was. He returned all of my calls, texts and emails. You just don't see this kind of treatment from attorneys now a days. In my personal opinion Mr. Hardy is bar none one of the best defense attorneys in the state of Conneticut
Mr. J. Hardy was referred to us by an acquaintance who did not handle criminal matters. I was pleasantly surprised when the case was reviewed with Mr. Hardy and he was able to answer all of our questions and informed us on the steps to expect. The outcome to the case was closed sooner than what could have been expected. I will definitely refer Hardy Law Group to anyone needing legal help.
Hardy took the stress of my situation off my shoulders and in a timely manner. He knew exactly what to do for me and all of my charges were dropped and the case dismissed entirely. Very professional, effective, and being a college student myself; worked with my budget. Deffinately would recommend his services to anyone in need of legal help!
I would definitely recommend The Hardy Law Firm to my friends and family. Mr. Hardy is honest he works diligently for his clients. He would even take my calls at odd hours my brother got into some serious problems with a violation of probation. My brother was looking at 5 years in jail, he ended up doing 5 months. He did what he set out to do I definitely would use him again if need be. Thank you Mr. Hardy for all your hard work.
Caring, Responsive, knowledgeable lawyer
James helped me out with my son. When situations with the law arise, the last thing you want is to be kept waiting or in the dark about what will happen. James immediately responded to our call, described the process in detail and knew the system well. Most importantly he genuinely cared for my son and his situation and he explained the cost right up front. I have dealt with other lawyers and James has been the best in my experience. Good man better person.
Great lawyer and professional
Great Service, High integrity and very skilled communicator

I have had a pleasure of working with Attorney Hardy on a civil matter. He is companionate, has an excellent understanding of the law and how it relates to the subject matter and he finds ways to ensure that his clients best interests are met. Attorney Hardy kept me abreast of changes in the law applicable to my situation and worked with me to reach a resolution. James Hardy is truly a well versed, attentive and skilled attorney.
Respectable, Dependable, Life Changing Experience! A Passionate Defender Of His Clients, The Truth, And The Law! First Class In Court And In Trial!
When I contacted Hardy Law Group, me and my family were in a very bad and difficult situation. I had court the next day, and numerous law groups I contacted could not take the case, did not want to take the case, and passed judgement on myself and family. Attorney James Hardy (Hardy Law Group), responded back quickly, listened to my legal problems without judgement, and urgently met with me and my family that night! Attorney Hardy walked into court the next morning! He was firm and passionate. Attorney James Hardy went the distance. He was determined, never waivered, and stood firm. Attorney Hardy demonstrated his skill and experience with hearings, pre trials, court trials, motions, stays, and briefs at the superior court and appellate court levels. He is a superior and exceptional lawyer in trial. Attorney Hardy's efforts changed me and my family's life. As time goes by, and I get caught up with the daily struggles of the day, I begin to forget about Attorney Hardy's heroic efforts. But every night when I come home from work and kiss and hug my family, I am reminded of what Attorney Hardy did for me. I am truly grateful.
Professional, friendly, and great at what he does.
My experience so far has been great and I appreciate the time my lawyer takes to work with me while I go through this case. He is kind and always there when I need him.
Excellent Criminal Defense
This was the second time I used Attorney Hardy. He did an excellent job in resolving both of my cases. He is very professional, answers all your questions, and retuns calls in a timely fashion. Iwould highly recommend him to anyone I know or who is in legal trouble.
Having Attorney Hardy as my lawyer was a great experience. From the moment I met Attorney Hardy he made me feel like I was in good hands with his calming demeanor and knowledge about cases like mine. I had a possession of Narcotics charge which is a felony which he got removed for me. I was also facing a number of larceny charges which I could have gone to jail for. I received no jail time, was put on non reporting probation and was able to move on with my life. Attorney Hardy still check in on me to this day and I consider him not just my lawyer but a friend. I would highly recommend Attorney James Hardy to anyone facing criminal charges like mine or for anything else for that matter, he really knows what he is doing!
