Hiring The Right Lawyer Is An Important Decision. I am PJ Hartman. Here’s A Little About Myself.

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 as well. I am a native resident of New Mexico and a New Mexico Supreme Court-Certified Family Law Specialist* with 15 years of experience in family law. I attended New Mexico State University where I received my B.S. in speech pathology, graduating with honors. I continued my education at the University of New Mexico, receiving a master’s degree in speech pathology (with honors), before fulfilling my dream of becoming an attorney and graduating from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 1993. While in law school, I was a member of the New Mexico Law Review and an exchange student to the Summer Law Institute in Guanajuato, Mexico.

I began my legal career as an associate attorney with the law firm of Hatch, Allen & Shepherd and subsequently worked as in-house counsel for a New Mexico community bank. In 2000, I opened my solo practice, PJ Hartman, Attorney at Law, working and specializing in the area of family and domestic matters. Since that time, my primary legal focus has been to assist families in resolving their divorce and child custody matters withIntegrity and Civility, a motto that has been at the forefront of my practice.
