I love what I do—helping people during what may be the best or the most difficult time of their lives. While every case and every day is different, nothing matches the feeling of knowing we achieved results.

J.D. is a co-founder and partner at the law firm of Hartung and Schroeder. He started the firm with friend and colleague, Brad Schroeder, after working in both boutique and large, multi-state firms. He saw first-hand that a small firm brings definite advantages to clients. Experienced in general litigation, he serves a wide range of clients including those seeking legal counsel for business, family law issues and personal injury.

J.D. works with entrepreneurs and family businesses on matters including corporate formation, contracts, disputes and employment matters.

His family law experience covers a wide range of family law cases involving divorce, asset distribution, child custody, and alimony. J.D. also provides mediation services.
