He really cares about you as a client!
I was hanging around some people that I shouldn't have been and got caught up in a situation where I was charged with Trafficking drugs. Alex helped me work through the charges and was able to get them dismissed. He also met with me multiple times to just talk about life choices and the roads that they can lead you down. I truly feel like he is my friend and will always look out for me.

Great Person - Great Attorney
Alex Hyman and his firm are very professional. His attending behaviors are phenomenal and he goes above and beyond in care, regard and representation. My personal experience with his firm was through a very challenging time personally and the care went beyond expectations in regards to the impact the process had on my life and the outcome of my case. I went with Alex after hearing extremely positive personal experiences about his representation and he exceeded those expectations once again. You want Alex and his firm in your corner and on your side!! Honest, Trustworthy and communicates very well. He truly cares about his clients.

Alex really saved me!!
I was facing some very serious charges for something that I truly did not do. I have struggled with drugs in the past and the first thing that Alex did was to get me help. I'm happy to say that not only did he help me get clean but he also got my case dismissed. I thought that my life was over and Alex really helped me out. I can't thank him enough! I hope that I never need another lawyer but I can promise if I do it will be Alex!

Gets the job done
This past month I had the pleasure of having Alex Hyman represent me for a criminal case I had to deal with. Mr. Hyman was very efficient and helped me settle things as quick and smooth as possible. He gets the job done and is willing to put in the time he needs to in order to keep his client satisfied.

Alex Hyman did an incredible job with all the proceedings of my case. Not only was he a consistent professional but my wife and I felt we could talk to him at any time and he always welcomed our questions. When the legal proceeding became frustrating, Alex was always a voice of reason and calm. In court Alex was prepared and reassuring through every step of the process and it was this preparedness and his knowledge of the law which proved vital in our positive result in our case. I would highly recommend his services to anyone and will gladly call upon him whenever I or my family need him again.

Alex Hyman, a Lawyer Who is Worth Every Penny!
In august, I was arressted for DUI. I was totally compliant with the officer and did as I was told and even did the breathalizer. The next day my brother referred me to Alex Hyman. After speaking with him I knew he could get the job done. I went in there feeling like there was no hope and my life was ruined because I was stopped at a checkpoint and blew. Mr. Hyman explained everything to me and asked me a series of questions and it turned out that I had a few things that were in my favor. With that being said, I was thinking the only thing that would happen would be my charge be dropped to a lesser offense such as wreckless driving. Come to find out Mr. Alex Hyman had my entire case dropped. It was truely an eye opener for me and I can not thank Mr. Hyman enough. Best lawyer hands down!

Alex handled the real estate closing for my first home. The process was handled very well by Alex. During my closing, Alex explained the various documents to me and if I had a question, he was their to answer. I would reccomend Alex to anyone that is looking for legal services!

Experience Counts
Mr. Hyman has been great to deal with. He has been very responsive in all of my dealings with him. His knowledge of the law and our court system has been advantagious. If it isnt his area of expertise, his recommendations have been spot on.
