Excellent Legal Counsel, Great Guy
Elijah is easy to talk to and will thoroughly listen to you before responding. He’s a smart guy and he actually cares about his clients. I needed help with a start up I’ve been working on for a while and he’s invaluable with business and start up guidance. I want to thank him for his dedication and his sincerely pleasant communication, I feel at ease with Elijah by my side. If you need a business lawyer for any reason, Elijah is your best bet. Throw your problem his way, and the legal wheels turning in his head will be palpable over the phone and you’ll value his response. Thanks again Elijah!

Gets it done for hemp derived retail
Elijah was very patient and showed a sense of care since the beginning of our trademark journey. I was relatively hands off throughout the whole process, and was accessible whenever I wanted updates on the progress. Thank you for getting our trademark completed for our legal cannabis hemp derived retail brand!

Intellectual property protection
Elijah is well versed in the law and gave me more than my money’s worth in obtaining a federal copyright for me and advising me on the complex law governing intellectual property protection. He is a professional, polite and personable young man and I would not hesitate to call him again for legal assistance.

very helpful
I consulted with Elijah Hartman about a wrongful termination situation. After speaking with him I filed a case with L&I and won and it was found that my ex employer retaliated against me for asserting my right to be paid for hours worked! I was paid back pay and the salary I was owed.

Excellent Work, Quick Turnaround
I hired Elijah to put together a template business agreement for my video production business. He did a wonderful job with a quick turnaround. He listened to my concerns carefully, brought quick solutions every step of the way, and pointed out areas that I need to include in my contract for legal protection. Elijah makes me feel my business is in good, professional hands and I highly recommend his legal services.
