Resolving Divorce Conflict By Stressing The Benefits Of Negotiation And Mediation

“PJ was able to get me the support I needed for my child from my ex. She was very aggressive in the courtroom and she helped me maintain primary custody of my child. I could not have done this without her help and I am very thankful for that.”

- N.P.

I highly recommend PJ Hartman and her paralegal Michael, they both gave me great support through a difficult time in my life, they surpassed my expectation of the outcome of my divorce. If you need someone to take care of your divorce give her a call. I still can’t believe the outcome.
