Editor, the Advocate:
In the bio related to his recent article on immigration, the Victoria Advocate described G. P. Hardy III as having practiced law in Victoria for four years, as being the husband of Sandra McKenzie and as having handled civil rights cases, many of which he did for free as a public service.
It is true that Geep Hardy is my husband and that he moved to Victoria when we married. I want you to know a little more about his background and credentials. We enjoy practicing law together.
In his career, he has tried more than 300 commercial and personal injury cases to a jury verdict with many million-dollar results. He has practiced law for 44 years in 25 states and overseas and has provided testimony and evidence to subcommittees of the United States Congress.
He has more awards than we can hang on the walls in our offices. He is a fellow in the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers. He is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, International Society of Barristers, Litigation Counsel of America and Million Dollar Advocates. He is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubble, graduated at the very top of his law school class, was a founder of the law review at St. Mary's School of Law, taught law classes at both St. Mary's School of Law and South Texas College of Law and has been designated a Super Lawyer since the honor's inception.
He is a prolific writer - the Advocate and other media have published a number of his articles. He is a rancher, author, trial lawyer, outdoorsman, hunter and fisherman, former rodeo cowboy and chef extraordinaire. Did I say Renaissance man? He is a loving husband, father, grandfather and soon-to-be great-grandfather. And most importantly, he is the love of my life. So, it is understandable that I would want you to know a little more about my Geep.
