    Katherine Hartman named Chair of the Board of Trustees for Lawyer’s Fund for Client Protection for Second Year

    Formerly known as the Clients’ Security Fund, the New Jersey Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection has served the same noble purpose since its creation more than 45 years ago: To reimburse clients in those rare instances when a lawyer betrays a client’s trust by misappropriating funds. The Fund operates under the direction of a volunteer, seven-member, Board of Trustees. The five lawyers and two non-lawyers are appointed by the New Jersey Supreme Court and each member serves a 5-year term.

    One dishonest lawyer can cause significant harm to law clients and also to the reputation of the Bar. The Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection is often the only means available to reimburse victims when this aberrant behavior occurs. New Jersey lawyers can be proud because the Supreme Court and the Bar are committed to protect the public against lawyer theft by maintaining a healthy and a responsive Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection. It is good for the public and good for the Bar, serving both in the highest tradition of the New Jersey Judiciary.

    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
