Welcome to Hartmann Law Firm

Mr. Hartmann is a “certified specialist” in criminal law, and is the founder and owner of the Hartmann Law Firm, a criminal defense law firm in Orange County.  For over 27 years, Mr. Hartmann has worked vigorously to defend individuals and companies accused of, or about to face, criminal charges in federal, state and juvenile court.

Mr. Hartmann’s professional record includes the following:

  • Full acquittals at trial
  • Partial acquittals at trial resulting in substantially reduced sentences
  • In some cases where a client was convicted of the charge or a lesser-charge, the evidence put the client in a more reasonable light than the Government or District Attorney portrayed before trial, resulting in more favorable sentences
  • Prevented clients from even being charged with a crime
  • If charges were filed, having the case dismissed, or evidence suppressed or limited because of law enforcement’s violation of the client’s constitutional rights or other prosecutorial and law enforcement misconduct
  • Negotiating substantially reduced charges or sentences in very serious felony and misdemeanor matters

The majority of Mr. Hartmann’s clients are recommended to him by satisfied clients. All criminal matters are considered urgent, and we will meet with you the same day or the next day after you call.

When facing, or about to face, criminal charges, who you hire impacts your ability to mount a successful defense. If you have been arrested, approached by law enforcement as a suspect or been ordered to go to Court, you need a skilled, respected and honest criminal defense attorney to represent you.
Choosing an inexperienced, inexpensive attorney or one who does not focus on criminal defense could be a mistake you will regret forever. Many clients come to the Hartmann Law Firm represented by counsel who do not know the client’s case, do not seem to care, are overly friendly with the prosecutor, do not return telephone calls, do not work the case and just seems to have told the client what they wanted to hear to get a fee.

Mr. Hartmann offers clients quality representation, honest answers (even when those may not be what the client wants to hear) and provides a detailed map as to how the case will be handled. And, he understands how you and your loved ones are terrified by the prospects of dealing with a criminal case that may result in you going to jail, losing your job and even more. The Hartmann Law Firm helps you regain control over your future by vigilantly doing everything possible to provide you outstanding representation, and by helping you and your family through the nightmare.

The Hartmann Law Firm focuses on criminal defense. Mr. Hartmann has achieved the highest academic and professional credentials and is respected for his skill and tenacious defense of his clients. He regularly represents clients at all levels of federal, state and juvenile court. His reputation for excellence is reflected in the substantial number of referrals he receives from former and existing clients and from other lawyers. He represents a broad range of individuals and companies in all types of criminal cases.

The Hartmann Law Firm is selective in the cases it accepts. A smaller caseload allows Mr. Hartmann substantial time to devote to your case. The representation you will receive is first-rate, and that is reflected in the results you should expect to receive and in his fees. While his fees are reasonable for the services he provides, if you are searching for the most inexpensive lawyer, or someone who will tell you what you want to hear, he will not be what you are looking for. However, if your goal is to find outstanding legal representation, responsive to you and your family’s needs, and to obtain the best possible result, his fees are well-matched with his outstanding record of achieving satisfying results for clients.
