4.5 stars 14 totalReview William Hammett
Before hiring an attorney, I thoroughly investigated all divorce lawyers within a 100-mile radius of Green Bay. My intention was to hire someone with expertise and experience specific to divorce law. To my surprise, I found someone in close proximity who has an outstanding reputation. Attorney William J Hammett with HBO law offices was selected to “Super Lawyers” from 2008-2015 as one of the top divorce and family law attorneys in the State of WI and, upon reading his clients’ reviews, I knew I wanted him to represent me. Bill’s vast knowledge of divorce law put me at ease almost immediately. Personally, I can attest to his honesty and integrity as a law professional. Many details of this process were initially quite overwhelming. Bill could sense my frustration and patiently answered ALL of my questions; my concerns and worries were quickly alleviated. What impressed me most was the step-by-step approach he used to convey the divorce process in terms I could understand. His actions and personality were highly professional both in and out of the courtroom. I have a great deal of respect for Attorney Hammett and am very satisfied with the outcome of my divorce. His legal assistant, Ellen, was absolutely wonderful too.
My situation is similar to Michael’s who posted a comment on Aug. 3rd. Bill handled my divorce and almost yearly I’ve been back in court for more child support. Bill does not break or bend the law, but he does support your case in your benefit. To this day my support has not increased due to Bill and his staff’s support. I can’t commend or provide a higher recommendation for Bill and his firm. They are all true professionals in every sense of the word and all are great “real” people. That makes a difference during the trying times you may be facing while needing a lawyer. Thanks again Bill and Ellen!

I am a current client of Attorney Bill Hammett. After being divorced for four and a half years, I was being taken back to court by my ex for child support before my child turned 18. When I needed to ask questions or had concerns, every phone call and email was answered in a timely manner. He listened to all of my concerns, I never felt like he did not care about my situation. He was always there when I needed him. I cannot say enough positive things about Attorney Bill Hammett. This type commitment is nice to have when a divorce process is difficult. Attorney Bill Hammett and his staff are professional at what they do. I would recommend Attorney Bill Hammett to anyone that might be going through a divorce like I did. Thank you and your staff for all your hard work.

I called Mr. Hammett's office for a consult because I had heard and read such good things about him. At the time, I was in desperate need of new and good representation for my very serious placement/custody battle. At first his receptionist was very friendly and quick to respond, but despite my polite emails and calls just trying to set up an appointment, it was two and a half weeks before I heard anything from Bill himself. They refused to even schedule me time to speak with him. When he did finally call, he left a message I felt was unprofessional and rude. His website says "free one hour consult" but don't be fooled. Most people run to a lawyer when they are in a very urgent and stressful position. His lack of empathy and professionalism made me feel like I wasn't good enough for his over-paid time. A lawyer with no respect for new clients isn't someone I'd ever want representing me.

I am so glad I chose Bill as my attorney. He did everything in his power to make sure that I was taken care from the day I first sat down with him, until the divorce was final. Bill and all of his staff kept me well informed, and were always there to answer any of my questions.

Bill Hammett got me the best results. I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone in need of a family law attorney. He was personable, prompt, and professional. Couldn't have asked for better.

Bill Hammett handled my unexpected and unwanted divorce. At our initial meeting, I was stunned, confused and didn't have a clue where to begin the process. He was compassionate without ever sacrificing professionalism. He displayed excellent knowledge of the case, represented me very well in both hearings, and was patient yet thorough in his explanations to my questions and concerns. In both hearings, his competence and defense strategy garnered the best possible outcome for me in terms of financial settlements. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr. Hammett to anyone in need of a good divorce attorney.
Both he and his staff served me graciously, courteously, and with great competence. I couldn't have asked for better.

Attorney Hammett handled a divorce case for our son. There were many unusual details involved in said case. "Bill" was thorough and professional at all times. Because our situation was outside the norm a lot of communication among us and attorney Hammett was required. He was succinct and to the point. Thus we were well pleased with both the fees and service. I would strongly recommend Bill for any domestic issues.

I am a current client of Attorney Hammett. I cannot say enough positive comments about Attorney Hammett, Ellen and Miranda, both of them work with him. If I ever have a question, concern or how to handle a situation, I know that I can always email or call. This type commitment is especially nice to have when the divorce process can be difficult. Attorney Hammett and his staff understand that divorce not only effects you, but your children. The staff is professional, knowledgeable, understanding, honest and trustworthy. I would recommend Attorney Hammett to anyone and I already have.
