Kevin Hardy is an attorney in our Columbia, SC, office practicing in the areas of real estate, estate planning, and mortgage foreclosures. He worked for several years as a staff accountant in the semiconductor industry before pursuing his law career at the University of South Carolina. Upon graduating from USC, he clerked for Judge Ralph King Anderson, Jr. at the South Carolina Court of Appeals.
As a residential real estate lawyer, his practice focuses on helping individuals and families purchase and refinance homes across South Carolina and works daily with realtors and lenders to protect clients' interests during the closing process.
He also assists clients with the preparation of wills, living wills, trusts, health care powers of attorney, and durable powers of attorney. This enables his clients to rest secure knowing that their wishes will be carried out upon their death or disability and their family will be protected. Kevin serves estate planning clients throughout Richland, Lexington, Sumter, Fairfield, and Kershaw Counties.
Kevin also has twelve years’ experience representing mortgage lenders in residential foreclosures throughout South Carolina. Kevin occasionally authors materials for and speaks at continuing legal education seminars where he educates other attorneys and updates them on legal developments. He co-authored an article entitled “The Matrix Decision and Its Effect on Equitable Remedies” that appeared in the December 2011 issue of South Carolina Young Lawyer.
He has participated in the South Carolina Bar’s Young Lawyers Division’s Wills Clinics where he volunteered his time preparing wills and estate planning documents for law enforcement officers, firefighters, and EMTs. He can occasionally be seen on television answering callers’ questions with the Bar’s Ask-a-Lawyer program.
