Very Impressive
First, I don't usually write reviews. This is actually only the 3rd review I've ever written; however, I was so impressed with Attorney Hatcher and her team I was compelled to write this review. Attorney Hatcher took on my case after I was turned away by 2 other attorneys. Attorney Hatcher was able to get a settlement of my case very close to what I was originally asking for. I am so grateful to the Hatcher Legal team. The professionalism of Hatcher Legal is second to none and if I ever need future legal representation I will definitely turn to Hatcher Legal.

David and Goliath
Attorney Hatcher and her staff are like David and Goliath; soft spoken, friendly, and very professional but mighty, strong, valor and wise when taking on great challenges. Moreover, coming out with the Win. Attorney Hatcher took my case to see if she could resolve it on the first level without me having to go to a deeper legal battle. With her smart and hard work coupled with her expertise, she was able to resolve my issue and get the information that I needed to move forward. I will always take my legal matters to her first and will refer my family and friends to her as well. I feel like she and her staff are a part of my family as I can talk to them as I would my own family. It has been a pleasure working with her and her staff.

Exceptional Legal Service and Advice
Working with Hatcher Legal was AWESOME experience. Attorney Hatcher and her team were thorough in handling the set-up with my new company. I experienced one hiccup the Dept. of Secretary during the process, however they took care of it so quickly, I didn't miss a beat. I plan on using Hatcher Legal for the rest of my legal needs.

Hatcher Legal Review
Nichole and her team are fantastic! My wife and I worked with Nichole to set up a small business and negotiate a commercial lease agreement. As we were completely new to the process, we relied on Nichole's extensive experience to guide us along the way. She was insightful, very informative, and explained things so that we could clearly understand what our options were. In addition, she is a great negotiator and we were able to get very favorable lease terms. We highly recommend Nicole and her team.

Need in the 9th hour
We contacted Ms. Hatcher in the 9th hour of a empolyee/employer dispute. She was gracious to accept us as clients and worked tirelessly the week leading up to the mediation. Her firm had a solid game plan and rebutable for mediation. Our company felt confident sitting in the mediation. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Highly Impressed by the Level of Service and Expertise
I switched attorneys in the middle of litigation to gain the services of counsel that would be more focused toward my best interest in negotiating a settlement. I was blown away by the level of professionalism by Ms. Hatcher and her team. you wont be disappointed in any way, shape or form.

Watch your back pocket
As a client of hers over a 3 year period of representation , I only met with her only a few times.... It consistsed of constant , never-ending requests for $5,000 / $10,000 Dollar retainers that were vacuumed up almost as soon as I could pay them. Eventually leading to her to requesting that I just pay $5,000 a month to keep my retainer supplied... After over $100,000.00 dollars of billing, my case never even saw its day in court....It was dismissed on technicality ..... Absolutely nothing was achieved... I refused to pay the last bill that was sent to me for a 35 min oral hearing to combat the dismissal of my case , inwhich I was billed $16,000.00 dollars for ... she refused to discuss the bill with me and come to a fair agreement, and then she promptly sued me for it, adding Monthly compound interest, exponentially increasing the bill to upwards of $30,000.... I regret the day I ever walked into her law office..
