Look No Further! I highly recommend Hamilton to anyone looking for an attorney. First and foremost, Hamilton is an excellent attorney that gets results. I got struck by a car while on my road bike and had some pretty serious injuries. Hamilton secured a very fair settlement for me. Hamilton is a former federal prosecutor and has a ton of trial experience, and I think that really helps when negotiating with the other side. Perhaps more important than being a great lawyer, Hamilton exemplifies client service and stayed in frequent contact with me to update me on the case and answer any questions I had. He took the time to explain every aspect of the case, allowing me to make important decisions about my case with his guidance but no pressure. Finally, Hamilton truly cares about his clients. It doesn’t matter if your case is big or small, if he takes you on, he makes you a priority. He often called just to see how I was doing, even if there were no case developments to talk about. Look no further than this former federal prosecutor to handle your case.”
