  • Top law firm in Ohio

    I hired attorney Edward Hartwig on my case involving petty theft. I am a medical student, so this charge on my record would have completely ruined my career. I have never been in a situation where I needed an attorney, but upon speaking with Edward, I knew I wanted him to represent me. I do not live in the state, so my main form of communication was through email, which Simonne, the paralegal, helped to answer any questions I had in a very timely manner. They were very knowledgable and helped explain all my options and the possible outcomes of my case. I am very fortunate that with Edward's help my case was dropped/dismissed and my future is not at stake. I truly recommend Edward to anyone looking for a dedicated individual to represent them. He and his team will surely do their best to work on your case and give you results you want.

  • I honestly have never had such a wonderful experience!

    I honestly have never had such a wonderful experience! After an accident my daughter and I were involved in my stress level was out of control from all the calls, bills and mounting mail . Attorney Hartwig was referred by my physician. I was leary about dealing with an Attorney. From our first appointment I felt my concerns and feelings were heard and answered. Communication throughout the process as well as education of what is required by law when dealing with issues of a minor. I would recommend Attorney Hartwig, let me not forget his awesome paralegal team for anyone looking for excellence and a trustworthy lawyer.

This was a very emotional experience for us and Attorney Hartwig prepared us for the process and helped us get thru this life changing experience. He is the consummate professional and the best Ohio has to offer.

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!!

    Attorney Hartwig is not only professional but truly caring as well. He is thorough, intelligent and a master at his craft. He was fair in his expenses as well as being straight forward and up front. There are no surprises. My particular case lasted a few years, but his knowledge and recollection of events never faltered. He truly fights for those he believes in. I was impressed by his composure and abilities during depositioning. He's fast on his feet and quick thinking. He is very prepared and it was obvious he is respected by his peers. He was also very available and never put me off or made me feel unimportant, even though I knew how busy he could be. I think very highly of his staff, they are truly wonderful and just as professional and thorough as he is. He fought for me and I won! But, more importantly his belief in me kept my spirits up during one of the hardest times in my life. I can't say enough about him and his staff. They are my Hero's!

He came to the hospital several times, had many of the bills reduced or eliminated and made me feel like I was his only client. He was very prompt and professional.

  • Great Lawyer

    Frank was referred to me by a family member and met with a free consultation. He could not take the case because it took place out of state but he gave excellent advice and referred me to a lawyer that ended up getting all of my charges withdrawn. Frank is very professional, personable, and dresses impressively.

  • Well prepared, extremely informative and down to earth!

    I used AVVO and another law referral website to locate an attorney in Ohio for the criminal defense of my son. Of the 5 attorneys I emailed, Attorney Hartwig was the 1st to respond - within about 20 minutes! I received only one other response. I wanted my son to talk to both of the attorneys that replied, but after a conversation with Attorney Hartwig, he said "that's the one!" He said he was very comfortable talking with Attorney Hartwig and knew he was the one for the case. Although we reside in PA and the charge was in OH, Attorney Hartwig and his excellent staff kept us very well informed. On the day of the hearing, Attorney Hartwig arrived prepared and instantly put us at ease. He handled everything before we even entered the courtroom and the results were better than we'd ever expected! One of the best things about Attorney Hartwig was his caring and down to earth nature. He is definitely someone you can talk to that understands no one is perfect. I felt his fee was quite reasonable and he was willing to work with us financially as well. I honestly don't know what we'd have done without him and his caring staff! I highly recommend Hartwig Law!!

  • Compassionate.Blessed.Genuine

    Attorney Hartwig represented me for my child custody case brought on by my daughters father. This was a very emotional case for me, as my daughters safety was at stake. Attorney Hartwig made me feel as if I was his only client. The level of professionalism and genuine care can not be put into words. April and Simonne were always there for any questions or concerns I had. The outcome was exactly what I hoped for and I will be forever grateful for what he did for me.

  • Very Professional

    Hired attorney Hartwig to write our wills and was handled very professionally. We would also recommend attorney Hartwig to our friends without hesitation.

  • Genuinely Cares

    Earlier in the year, I made he biggest mistake and committed a petty theft crime. When I was caught, I already knew what kind of trouble I was in because I knew that any kind of record could greatly jeopardize my career choice. I was very scared, worried and unsure of what to do. After doing a bit of research on local criminal defense attorneys, I found attorney Hartwig. I read reviews from other people who had committed even more harsher crimes than I and he managed to get them out of some pretty awful situations. After calling his office and speaking to his very sweet paralegal, Simone, I knew that I was going to be in good hands. Hartwig and Simone were both very helpful, informative and assuring. They provided answers and comfort I could not get anywhere else. They provided step by step directions on what to do, say and act regarding my case and hearings. Because of attorney Hartwig, I feel like I have been given a second chance at my future and able to better my life. He genuinely does care about you and your well being. He is always available too! Here were many moments when I had questions or concerns that I needed to speak to him about and he was quick to respond and help me understand. I cannot stress how wonderful attorney Hartwig and his team are. Also, for those who struggle financially, he is affordable. Not only does he cost significantly less than other attorneys I have contacted, but he works out payment plans with you! Attorney Hartwig was working hard on my case even before I made my first payment towards my balance. That's when I knew I trusted the right attorney with my case. I will forever be thankful for him and his team! I highly recommend him to anyone who needs someone on their side.

  • Best Lawyer out there!

    Attorney Hartwig is nothing short of an excellent lawyer with great natural abilities. He is a very personal lawyer and has your best interest no matter what the charges may be.

Attorney Hartwig you are a 5 star lawyer without a doubt.

  • Very pleased with the services & representation

    I had a couple cases with Ed Hartwig, he was very generous with the payments, very flexible. His secretary & himself took very good care of me. Very pleased with the services & representation.

  • Long story short I am very happy that I let him defend me.

    My husband hired him for me after a complicated DUI charge I received. My husband chose to find me a lawyer because of a bad experience we had with a previous lawyer I hired. I was very skeptical of lawyers after the bad experience, but my husband insisted. Long story short I am very happy that I let him defend me. I am a nurse so felt my lively hood was on the line. He had the other charges dismissed and it was reduced to a reckless op. I am very grateful for his services. Great lawyer.

  • I would highly recommend him

    Mr. Hartwig did an excellent job Iam very please with his work! I would highly recommend him

  • Loss for words

    It all started with a night of celebration. My husband and I and our friends went out dancing. Later that night we were hungry so we stopped at sheets. My husband and I started getting into a dumb argument that neither one of us remember due to all the alcohol consumed that night. The argument got pretty heated which ended up leading to me slapping my husband across the face. The cops were called by the sheets manager seconds later cops arrived. Not really asking any questions, just reviewing the tape they had, they took me away handcuffed. I was taken to jail. My husband got the money together and bailed me out the next morning. My husband and I shaking, started crying. We both knew what domestic violence was about due to people in the past we knew of being convicted. My husband made it very clear to the police that night he did not want to press charges, but the state was pressing charges against me. We google'd the best criminal attorneys in the area. Attorney Hartwig's law firm was the first to appear. Then I went in for the first meeting and explained my career and life are on the line and I hold 3 state medical license's and a CCW permit. He put me right at ease and we talked for awhile. Then it was time for the pre trial. Btw, it didn't even get to a trial because attorney hartwig is so amazing. Let me explain what happened, I sit there with my husbands mom for about an hour, literally shaking waiting for my sentence, attorney hartwig walks in goes and does his thing comes out and says come with me for a second. He turns to my and says, "tarah everything is dismissed, everything is gone." He said "I told you to trust me, it would be okay." I left with my husband that day. Attorney Hartwig has in some aspects saved my life by saving my career and I could not thank his law firm enough!!!
