The Hatchett Firm provides effective closing settlement strategies while using a client-centered approach.
Similar to her time on the bench, Hatchett vows to pursue justice for those who have experienced significant loss from the carelessness of others, and the families of victims of senseless violence at the hands of law enforcement.
With over 30 years of experience as a judge, corporate lawyer, and board member of corporate and nonprofit organizations, Hatchett has established a legacy of excellence.
Most recently, Hatchett has returned to TV in her new television court series, The Verdict. She presides over the series as a follow-up to Sony TV’s long-running Judge Hatchett. The Verdict marks Entertainment Studios’ sixth current court series on JusticeCentral.TV.
