Highly recommended
I hired Attorney Hatcher after being charged with a petit theft misdemeanor. Being a 1st time offender I was very nervous not knowing what to expect, Attorney Hatcher assured me that he would do his very best to get me the best outcome and not to worry. It was a huge relief to know that he was there to fight for me and I didn't have to appear for any court appearances because Attorney Hatcher handled all that for me. In the end because of Attorney Hatcher I walked away with a "slap on my rist"! Very very impressed!! His fees were very reasonable!

An lawyer with honest intent to resolve matters in the best possible way
Mr. Hatcher is a rare find, he was honest and straightforward. He did not try to up sell his services to me. He gave me a detailed summary of my legal options and helped my to better understand the consequences of each possible outcome. I did consulted with two other Law Firms, both times , I felt like they were over promising possible solutions, as long as I was willing to keep paying them. I would strongly recommend to have a consultation with Mr Hatcher before you hire legal representation.

Excellent and knowledgeable attorney!
Mr. Hatcher was very prompt in his responses, professional, and I could tell he was experienced and he knew what he was talking about. He's not going to be intimidated by other attorneys and will fight for you in the Courtroom. I consulted with him regarding a family law matter and he answered all the questions I had.
