Amazing Attorney And Staff
Bankruptcy is a big step to take in life, sometimes it's the only way back up. Atty Hamilton and her staff made my experience with this decision of mine that much easier. With all of my health issues I was very dependent on their guidance and expertise. I could not be happier using Atty Paulette Hamilton for my legal needs. Thank you all.

The Attorney You Deserve
Paulette Hamilton is actually what most lawyers claim themselves to be: Smart, dogged, sympathetic, qualified. But, beyond that, she is accessible and patient -- qualities that most lawyers I've dealt with have in short supply, if at all. Every client prizes an attorney who cares, knows what she or he is doing, and is responsive even when the client is nervous and demanding. Paulette Hamilton is one of those rare finds who actually delivers both the competence and the compassion that clients crave and deserve.

Genuine and Knowledgeable
I highly recommend Attorney Hamilton. She genuinely wants to help her clients achieve the best outcome. She is knowledgeable and offers multiple options to help each individual situation. Before Attorney Hamilton I had been ill advised by another attorney I consulted. She gave me hope and resolved an unorthodox dissolution of marriage for me.

Wish I had known her before my divorce
I am truly grateful to Paulette for how she has been a constant safe haven for me. She came in and cleaned up the mess my divorce attorney left behind. Not only is she the best in the business she really cares about her clients.

The Best
Attorney Hamilton is one of the best out there, I was previously taken advantage of by one of the best known big box law firms in Orlando so at my wits end when I came to her. She graciously agreed to handle my case and she made it a breeze. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking good competent legal advice and representation!!!

Attorney Hamilton is phenomenal
Attorney Hamilton was phenomenal from beginning to the end. I didn't think the outcome of my case would be positive at all. My friend referred me to Attorney Hamilton, and I'm so glad he did. During the consultation attorney Hamilton made me feel at ease regarding my case, it felt like a burden had lifted. As time went on I was 100% sure that attorney Hamilton was the working hard to win my case and that is exactly what she did, she won my case. Her professionalism was dynamic I will be forever grateful for her services.

When you Hire Attorney Hamilton,you get results
Attorney Hamilton provided me with professional personalized caring services and was there for me throughout the complexity of my case ,which resulted in agreed upon resolutions. I had the services of 2 other attorneys prior to obtaining the services of Attorney Hamilton. One Attorney for the original dissolution of my 30 year marriage, and another attorney to assist me with the court proceeding for the breeches to the terms of the marriage settlement agreement. Needless to say after 5 years,at times, it almost felt hopeless, until, I obtained the skilled, experienced, professional services of Attorney Hamilton. She was always supportive, focused and again I want to say professional as she represented me throughout this process. Attorney Hamilton is very rational and caring at the same time. What I have learned through this experience is that when it comes complex breeches in interpersonal relationships , no matter how knowledgeable you might think you are; the LAW is the only thing that matters, when it come to the Family Law System. Attorney Hamilton knows the laws and when she enters a court of law on your behalf; the courts system recognizes her knowledge of legal protocol on multiple levels. Attorney Hamilton is the best of the best. I'm forever thankful for her service

Excellent Attorney and Colleague
Paulette is an amazing and devoted family law attorney. Her unparalleled dedication to each of her cases exemplifies her accomplishments in the court room. I have referred many potential clients to Paulette, and each one has returned to me with positive accolades, and expressed her compassion towards their individual cases; yet take-control strength in her legal representation. I definitely recommend Paulette Hamilton as a fantastic, one-of-a-kind family law attorney.

Very helpful
I have had 2 consultations with this attorney and I found her to be very helpful. I am contemplating a divorce and just trying to figure out what steps I should be taking right now. I was impressed that she remembered me after almost 6 months after my first visit. I didn't feel rushed and I think she is genuinely compassionate. I will definitely hire her if I decide to go forward with the process.

Very aggressive
Paulette was my divorce attorney for my very ugly divorce. She is very aggressive and did not back down to my wife or her attorney. I felt like she was ready to fight my case until the very end. I would definitely hire her again.

Fought hard for my alimony
She helped me to get alimony after being married to an abusive man for 8 years. She didn't take any crap off of my ex or his attorney. She really fought for me. My alimony is only for 5 years but that is more than what other attorneys told me I could end up with. I am 38 and the other two attorneys I spoke with told me that I was young enough to get a job. I am very thankful for her and her hard work.

honest and upfront about fees and costs
I hired Ms. Hamilton to help me with a custody case with my ex. She took my case and was very upfront with me about what I needed to do to help my case. She also took time to explain the law to me and helped me decide to settle my case without going to court. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of a custody attorney.

Clients best interest at heart
Ms. Hamilton has been and still is a wonderful Attorney to me. Ms. Hamilton has assisted my family 3 different occasions; 2 accident cases and family (child support issues) and I have been happy with the outcome of all 3 cases. She has worked extremely hard on my cases and even when I thought things weren't going the way I wanted them to she was able to show me the light at the end of the tunnel. She took the time out to explain to me the things that were happening in my case to ensure that I understood them. I am more than confident in Ms. Hamilton's ability to handle any situation and trust her opinions on the decisions I should make. I would most definitely recommend Ms. Hamilton as an attorney, she knows the law and only wants what is truly best for her clients.

Honest and Straightforward
I have had several lawyers in the past regarding my custody case. Those lawyers lacked the following: knowledge, honesty, courage and passion regarding my matter. After my experience with previous attorneys I needed someone who was not going to talk over my head or beat around the bush. I was referred to Ms. Hamilton by a friend that was very satisfied with her legal services. I was very impressed with Ms. Hamilton after my consultation. She was very informative and straight to the point with me. She hit on all the pros and cons for myself and the opposing party. There are no guarantees in life, so I fully appreciate an attorney who keeps it 100% real with me. Ms. Hamilton gave me an outline for my case and the projected costs as well as time frame for such case. There is no such thing as cheap legal services if the services are cheap then the work will be shoddy. I have had that problem in the past and I am no longer going to forego a couple of bucks if it means ruining my case. Ms. Hamilton has reasonable rates with a very professional legal approach. Since Ms. Hamilton has been on my case, she has corrected several errors that my previous attorneys made in the case. My case is going smoothly and we are hoping to be able to work towards an agreement soon! Ms. Hamilton has made that possible in my case. I know how to be a good client, but I am glad that I have someone that knows how to be a good attorney. Thank you Ms. Hamilton!!! If you need an attorney that is straightforward and committed to a resolution then Ms. Hamilton is the attorney for you.

Highly Recommend
I hired Ms. Hamilton for a divorce approximately a year and a half ago. She was my second attorney in my divorce case. I have learned when hiring an attorney you must find someone who you can work with to achieve a resolution in your case. She was honest and upfront with me from the very begining about the remaining cost and attorney fees in my case. She remained poised and encouraging even though I was going through an emotional breakdown at times. I would highly recommend her services to anyone going through a divorce.
