    Purple nose that grows

    This attorney was appointed to represent my "best interests" but because of his purple nose issue, this attorney should have Just Said No but didn't because over the next 7 years he took $50,000 out of my college fund and it wasn't until my brother became an adult that I was able to address the court and move 3 hours away from Walter Hsmmon. This attorney ruined my childhood on purpose and now I am writing this review cause sooner or later people, we kids get to have a voice

    Too Old Too Desperate

    I was Walter's clients in 2005 and can't seem to get rid of him. He won't settle my case and I am most likely going to listed as a defendant, with Walter as the plaintiff, very soon. Do your children a huge favor. Don't hire this attorney.

    Don't Go To This Attorney

    Walter can't remember anything said to him and doesn't use email at all, so putting something in writing for Walter to remember means writing an archaic letter. Walter's staff loves letters. His secretary will write you back three letters for each one you find time to write. You aren't hiring an attorney when you go to this office. You are hiring his staff, so make sure they have coached Walter well before any hearing dates before a judge or just let Walter repeat the same lines he has used for 30 years before. I heard him repeat the exact same words over and over again in my case and they were totally unrelated to what we had previously discussed. Your case is no different to Walter than the hundred or so he has heard before. I don't think Walter would even recognize me if the date and time hadn't been set in advance to meet with him.

    Not this attorney

    I was Walter Hammon's client for way too long and still owe him money that I won't/can't pay. Walter's office would write me 4 to 5 letters a day, none of which I wanted written, and none of which Walter was aware of, and none of which came from him. All of the 500 plus letters I received from Walter Hammon's office were from Nicole, his secretary who loves to write in length and bill for what she writes.

    This attorney is not available to you, The Client, but you will see him in court constantly and he is hard to miss because of the numerous high school rings on his fingers, his huge red beard, and he is also very tall and very thin.

    This attorney should be avoided if you have children and want them to grow up healthy and happy, loved and cared for by their parents throughout difficult times brought about by divorce.

    The "Go To" Attorney for Family Law

    Without a doubt, hands down, absolutely the best Family Law Attorney's in San Jose, CA. While other lawyers are reading about current trends in family law Walter P. Hammon is setting trends. It is true that Mr. Hammon is VERY well respected amongst his peers and Judges alike. Very well respected. His demeanor is calm, his thought process is clear and concise, and he maintains the highest integrity.

    It is true that Mr. Hammon is hard to reach, however realize that his profession is in the legal field not psychological field. Mr. Hammon's job is not to hold your hand but rather to work on the legal aspects of your situation. Mr. Hammon is an excellent communicator as he often sends 3-4 page letters detailing your case. On numerous occasions I would open my mail box to find between 5-6 letters from Mr. Hammon specifically addressing minute details of my case. In an event of legal importance, Mr. Hammon's office makes every attempt to contact you. Word of advice: Write Mr. Hammon letters in response to his letters. He will/does read them.

    BTW: Every commendation I give Mr. Hammon I also extend to his staff.

    Do not use this attorney

    Mr. Hammon is in court constantly and appears to have it all together. In reality, his staff is well trained to cover for his frequent absences and as his client, you never actually see his face because he keeps it well hidden by that huge red beard and mustache. When I was unable to pay him timely, he retaliated by using my children's custody and visitation as ransom against me. He is all about the money and only about the money. If you pay him enough, he may satisfy but my teenagers are almost grown now and the cost of his continually created conflict in my divorce in order to generate revenue was not worth it and should not be worth it for anyone. My children now live with me 100% of the time by my own doing after firing Walter Hammon and are excelling in all aspects away from the conflict of the divorce created by Walter Hammon.

    will not dissapoint!

    Walter is one of the best family law attorney you will ever meet! I am a single father in California which is very uncommon. If it weren't for him my lovely daughter wouldn't be the happy and safe child she is today.

    Excellent attorney

    Handled a very complicated child custody matter extremely well. Very professional and well respected by his peers and judges alike. Calm demeanor. Only frustration is that it is sometimes hard to reach him. His office staff does a very good job of "protecting" him. Sometimes this can be very frustrating when you really want to talk to him and can't get to him. High integrity, fair minded, EXCELLENT attorney when it counts.
