What Happens in Traffic Court?

Most states do not offer the right to trial by jury for minor traffic violations such as speeding or running a red light/stop sign. Instead, if you choose to contest a traffic ticket, your case will be decided by a judge rather than a jury in a process known as a “bench trial.” If you’ve […]

I was served with disciplinary charges at work which then developed into criminal charges. Katie explained each issue to me, and was able to resolve both the criminal case and my discipline! She was always available to me if I had questions and I am very happy with the outcome!


After working with another attorney, who messed up my case, I hired Katherine Hartman to represent me. I found her to be sincere, trustworthy, knowledgeable and patient in explaining everything to me. In short, Katherine kept me out of jail and I would hire again! (Even though I hope I never have to see her again!)


I highly recommend the Hartman Law Firm. Katie Hartman is a true professional, and an absolute advocate for her clients. She takes pride in making herself available for her clients in regards to questions or concerns relating to your case. She will leave no stone unturned!


I wish I could select a higher star rating. Our Company was assisted by Michael Mormando of Attorneys Hartman in a municipal case and we simply could not be happier with the way our case was handled. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is a true master of his craft and we would highly recommend his services


Katherine was such a pleasure to work with! She was very caring, responsive, and professional throughout my whole experience. I will continue to recommend her and her firm to all of my friends and family
