    About Us

About Hartzell & Whiteman
Hartzell & Whiteman, L.L.P. was formed in 1994. Our attorneys have over 65 years combined experience in civil litigation. The bulk of our work is in federal and state courts in North Carolina, but we sometimes file cases in other jurisdictions with the permission of the local court. The firm is experienced in complex litigation, class actions, trials and appellate practice, and is committed to providing high quality, cost-effective advocacy. The majority of our cases are for individual plaintiffs, and we strive to maintain a strong commitment to client service and communication. While client satisfaction and results drive our efforts, we are equally committed to adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards. We always try to treat our colleagues, opposing parties and court personnel with the courtesy and respect we hope to receive in return.

Hartzell & Whiteman enjoys an "AV" rating, which is the highest rating for competence and ethics as determined by peer surveys conducted by Martindale-Hubbell.

In addition to our work in the areas of disability benefits and insurance claims, we also handle business litigation, securities claims and arbitrations, consumer class actions, commercial disputes, intellectual property claims and employment law.
