John Hardie grew up just south of Seattle, and from an early age he was taught the value of hard work, dedication, and compassion from his parents and public-school teachers. John’s practice consists entirely of helping individuals and families with personal injury and wrongful death claims. Some notable cases include the following:
- Confidential settlement for a family whose father died of severe blood loss while he was supposed be supervised by medical staff
- Six-figure legal malpractice recovery against a lawyer who ignored a client’s personal injury case and tried to cover it up
- Settlement for a woman who was injured on a faulty temporary walkway that was in place during a construction project at an apartment building
- Settlement in a case of man who was struck by a car at a street crossing
John went to law school at Seattle University School of Law, where he graduated with honors, including being named to the Dean’s List two years in a row—an honor reserved for students in the top ten percent of the class. He competed in trial and appellate competitions locally and on the west coast. For these activities, John was admitted to the national trial advocacy honor society, Order of the Barristers. John interned for The Honorable Stephen J. Dwyer at the Washington State Court of Appeals. Before his final year of law school, John interned at an acclaimed litigation firm that represents injured individuals and families. After law school, John co-founded Sound Injury Law. He returned to his passion of helping individuals and families overcome the devastation of injury and wrongful death.
In his free time, John can be found with his wife, Evelyn, and their miniature dachshunds, Bella and Sophie, enjoying the beauty that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
