Hiring The Right Lawyer Is An Important Decision.

I am PJ Hartman. Here’s A Little About Myself.

PJ Hartman Attorney Profile

My legal name is Paulette J. Hartman but my friends refer to me as PJ. As you can see, my clients call me PJ Hartman…

Having graduated from law school in 1993, I have been practicing law for more than 25 years, and solely in the area of family law for over 20 years.

I have handled many high asset and complex divorce cases as well as high-conflict matters.  It is my normal practice to suggest various options for reaching your personal and family goals in resolving your family separation and custody issues, while protecting your legal rights.

I have personal experience with the divorce and custody process, (as I am a divorcee with two children), so I understand and can relate to the difficulties you are currently facing.  The combination of my personal and professional experience motivates me to inspire positive resolutions that empower my clients to see their way forward in a wholistic and  positive manner.

Whether you are the WIFE or HUSBAND, MOTHER or FATHER, I will share my extensive experience (both personal and professional) to identify options that will help you forge forward to create a  better and healthier situation for you and your children.

My motto is “Make Change Through Integrity and Civility.”

Experience has taught me that most of the time, there IS a decent and principled way to change your current situation and move on!



Professional Credentials

I am a member of the American Association of Collaborative Professionals and the New Mexico and Albuquerque Association of Collaborative Professionals. I have worked with families and children in the community as a board member of Outcomes Inc. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and currently serve as a member of the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce.

I am a board-certified family law specialist offering effective, experienced legal services. As a solo practitioner, I work with clients one-on-one with the assistance of a highly professional, experienced staff. Every client works directly with a senior attorney, not a clerk or junior associate. You get the benefit of knowing that I will handle your case from beginning to end, maintaining continuity and familiarity for the life of each case.

With more than 15 years of family law experience, I understand the challenges you face as you go through your divorce and know how to achieve civil, cost-effective and timely solutions.


“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.
