Donald Bardes is a native New Yorker who set down roots in North Carolina in 2003 to advocate on behalf of people who have been injured through no fault of their own.

Bardes grew up in Brooklyn and received a B.S. degree in business administration from St. John’s University in 1990. After working for a time in hospital administration and finance in New York City, he moved to Arizona, where he became a paralegal. He then decided to become a lawyer and came to North Carolina to enroll in Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law in 1999.

After completing his legal studies in 2 ½ years and receiving his J.D. in 2001, he returned to Arizona to work as an attorney in the firm where he had been a paralegal. By then, he and his wife had a young son and decided that North Carolina was where they wanted to raise him, so he returned to begin raising a family and practicing law.

Bardes has worked on his own and with other lawyers in the area, handling mostly personal-injury cases along with some workers compensation cases and criminal defense. Then in 2014 he joined Hardison and Cochran, where his primary focus is on pre-litigation, which involves talking with clients to evaluate the suitability of their cases.

Bardes takes pride in his maintenance of a personal commitment to provide his clients the best possible opportunity to achieve good results.

“I’m an idealist, so I love helping people,” he says. “I’m the guy who likes fighting for the underdog. I represent people against insurance companies who think everything is about profit lines and numbers, and I help people fight through that.”

Bardes is licensed to practice law in state and federal courts in both North Carolina and Arizona and has been active in the American Association for Justice. He is also a co-author of the book, “Personal Injury Practice in North Carolina,” published by LexisNexis in 2011, contributing a chapter that discussed disbursement and handling of settlement money.
