Attorney Frank Hartman

Frank Hartman concentrates his legal practice in several areas, specializing in cases concerning social security disability, auto accidents, on the job injuries, slip and falls, trucking injuries, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. Mr. Hartman recently achieved a settlement on behalf of his client, a Beaufort, SC woman involved in a slip and fall claim, obtaining a $230,000.00 settlement with a maximum possible recovery of $300,000.00 had death resulted.

Hartman Law Firm L.L.C. was established by Mr. Hartman in 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina. Mr. Hartman worked with a prominent local firm prior to opening his own firm. During the three years of his employment, Mr. Hartman tripled the settlement results for his clients. His experience in the industry led him to conclude that large plaintiff firms put their own bottom line above their clients’ best interest, settling their clients’ cases on a case volume practice as opposed to obtaining the best results for their client, or profit over people. Insurance companies are well aware of the large firms’ reputation for settling cases for less than their actual values, so they offer significantly less, knowing these claims are likely to settle anyway. Mr. Hartman opened his own firm so he could help his clients obtain the best settlement results and because he thinks the people of South Carolina deserve better.

“I sincerely believe in people over profits, which is why I choose to use my experience and skills to fight big insurance companies and corporations.”

About Me: I am a passionate attorney who represents the people of Charleston, South Carolina for injuries they receive in car wrecks, accidents, on the job injuries, medical malpractice, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and any other tort claim under the sun. I worked for a large, local firm and came to the realization that firms such as that one and other larger firms were selling out their clients because they settled cases in volume. Large law firms, or "mills," as they are known in the industry, do not get the best results for their clients because they value number of settlements over the quality of the result. What's more insurance companies are well aware of large law firm tendencies and pay less for claims submitted by those firms as a result. Their business model does the legal profession a disservice and I feel the people of South Carolina deserve a better quality of representation, where they are the focus of the lawyer's practice. We value people over prof
