The Hartsoe Law Firm fights for victims of crimes and their families to recover damages due to wrongful death or violent physical or sexual assault. Mark Hartsoe has substantial experience in this area. Mr. Hartsoe recently represented a family from Michigan whose husband/father was shot and killed at a restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee. After two years of litigation in Federal Court, the case was concluded with a confidential settlement. In the case the widow through her lawyer Mark Hartsoe, alleged in the Complaint that the restaurant management had received several warnings of the gunman’s erratic conduct but failed to take appropriate action to safeguard the customer. As a result of failing to take appropriate action, the 35 year old family man from Michigan was shot and killed. During the two years of litigation, numerous depositions were taken throughout the United States. Hartsoe worked closely with nationally recognized expert witnesses and frequently visited the family in Michigan to get to know the family better and learn what they were going through following the death of their father/husband.

Client Reviews
I was on my way to Atlanta and a huge truck rear-ended me and knocked me off the side of the road. I was scared. Didn’t know what to do. I tried working with the insurance company. They are just difficult to work with. I had to call somebody to take care of me. So, My brother told me to call Mark Hartsoe. As soon as I called Mark Hartsoe, he let me know real quick that everything was going to be okay and that he would take care of everything. And, he did. He got me a great settlement. He took the worry off of me.

I was hit coming home late at night by a drunk driver who took off. And the next day I was able to track down his vehicle and get the state police involved. At that point, a family friend recommended that I talk to Mark Hartsoe. Pretty much at that point, Mark handled the police, the insurance company and the guy who hit me. Settled with the actual person that hit me. Outside of that, everything came out great. Did not have to go to court. Got a great settlement. Got my car replaced. Got a check. Mark Hartsoe is my lawyer. Nate Holder

I was involved in a motorcycle accident. It was a head-on collision. I broke my arm, injured by knee. I was out of work for a long time and had medical bills, other expenses. A personal friend handed me a card for Mark Hartsoe. I called Mark Hartsoe from the side of the road and he took care of everything. My case was settled out of court. I received a great settlement. Bike was totaled, motorcycle was replaced. It was easy, painless. About as painless as something like this can be. This is why my lawyer is Mark Hartsoe. John Lusinger
