Mr. Hatfield exceeded my expectations of skilled and committed representation, As a retired attorney, my standards may be unreasonable, but Mr. Hatfield met all of them. His communication skills are excellent, which is critical when working across time zones. I truly appreciate his help.

Excellent Lawyer!
Mr. Hatfield is the first attorney I've ever hired. I filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and he helped me through every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anybody in need of a lawyer. He is very respectful, courteous, and easy to work with. Thank you Mr. Hatfield for all your hard work!
