With the help of fantastic paralegals, great attorneys and a loyal client base, Andrew Hartman (Andy) has cultivated one of the busiest Real Estate Closing law firms in North Georgia. During the course of this practice Andy has represented banks and lending institutions on the national, state and local level, including hedge funds and private lenders. The firm routinely handles million-dollar-plus commercial and assemblage projects. The firm has been selected Affiliate of the Year by both the Cherokee & Pickens Counties Realtor Boards for multiple years and has been named to the Partners Circle for Chicago Title Insurance Company several years running.
Throughout 2015 Andy presented numerous training seminars and created a handbook about the massive changes to the closing industry which affected the forms used for closings and other changes promulgated by the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Even in a challenging real estate market, the firm has held fast to a philosophy that “personal service comes first.”
Andy began his legal career in 1996 working for a small Cherokee County general business and civil litigation firm, including real estate closings and title examinations. Soon thereafter he opened his own Woodstock law firm which has now grown to several offices around north-west Atlanta suburbs. Andy lives in Cherokee County with his wife Anna (“the real boss”) and one wonderful son.
