Connecticut attorney James Hardy offers a closer look at his growing list of legal industry awards and other professional accolades.


Multi-award-winning attorney James Hardy, from West Hartford, Connecticut, reflects on his numerous legal industry and other professional accolades as he shares details of several awards ranging from Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association Top 40 Under 40 recognition to a second highly prestigious Platinum Client Champion award for 2019 from Martindale-Hubbell.


Connecticut attorney James Hardy’s first professional accolade came in 2004 when he received an Achievement Medal courtesy of the U.S. Army. Following his military service, Hardy went on to achieve a Bachelor of Science in the area of finance, and, four years later, a Juris Doctorate from the University of Massachusetts School of Law.


After subsequently serving in the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Office for a time, among the now-qualified attorney’s first awards as a lawyer was Top 40 Under 40 recognition from the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association. The same year, Hardy became a Nolo Featured Lawyer, marking another significant professional accolade for the attorney. “Nolo’s mission is to help consumers and businesses find solutions to their legal and business needs, so it was fantastic to become a Featured Lawyer on the network’s online platform,” Hardy explains. 


The popular Connecticut attorney was then recognized as part of Lawyers of Distinction’s Rising 40 Under 40 series, before receiving a National Trial Lawyers Association Award from the National Trial Lawyers Association, and one of several Client Champion awards from Martindale-Hubbell. Among these has been a 2017 Gold Client Champion award, a 2018 Platinum Client Champion award, and, most recently, a second highly prestigious Platinum Client Champion award for 2019. 


Martindale-Hubbell’s annual Client Champion awards promote the accomplishments of attorneys such as lawyer James Hardy in helping those seeking legal services to select the very best. “Recognitions such as Martindale-Hubbell’s Client Champion awards show the outside world that you’re someone who can be relied upon; a person that can deliver, and one who stands above the rest,” said Hardy upon receipt of his second Platinum Client Champion award last year. 


Other accolades received by Connecticut attorney James Hardy include a Best Lawyers’ recommendation for Best Lawyer in 2018, a ’10 Best’ recognition from the American Institute of Legal Counsel, and a Rising Star award from SuperLawyers. 


James Hardy, Connecticut attorney, has also since been recommended for an Avvo.com Clients’ Choice Award and has received the corresponding recommendation on Lawyers.com, a leading source of online consumer and small business information regarding United States law. 


“It’s always wonderful to be recognized in this way,” adds Hardy, wrapping up, “and awards such as these are a testament to the passion which I have for my work, and for representing my clients each and every day.”
