Post Dissolution of Marriage Issues
I filed for divorce in 2005. It took over 3 years to finally get my dissolution of marriage completed in 2008. Since, 2011 I have basically been litigated against by my ex-wife and her new attorney non-stop. My other attorney (who was also a family friend) quit because she got tired of handling it and I started handling everything Pro Se. In June 2016, I finally had enough and asked another attorney friend of mine to a family a referral. He recommended the office of Christine Derr. Christine put Kim Hamill on the case. I want to tell you that Kim is probably the most capable, most well prepared attorney that I have every worked with. Kim meticulously researched and countered all the opposing attorney's issues, resulting in ALL his motions basically being denied. As a result the case, that has dragged on for YEARS now looks to finally be coming to an end even though Kim has only been on a case a short time. I emphatically recommend Kim Hamill for any family law case that you may have. I am sure she is probably just as capable in other areas of law as well but I have not personally see her in those areas.

Post-Dissolution of Marriage Trials and Hearings
I have dealt with multiple hearings and trials since my divorce two years ago, which no one enjoys. However, the professional manner in which Kim handled all of these issues - and continues to handle - is incredible. Her organization is impeccable, attention to detail immaculate, and communication prompt and courteous. She makes an overwhelming situation less so, and I highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance in family law.

dissolution of my marriage
From the moment I met Kim, I immediately trusted her to handle the dissolution of my marriage. Divorce is a life altering decision that is full of emotion and Kim made the process as "painless" as possible. In addition to her extensive legal knowledge and impeccable attention to my case, she understands how trying divorce is and took the time to conduct "welfare checks" on me. Her professionalism and caring demeanor allowed me to feel confidant my divorce was in great hands. Kim, along with everyone at the firm, are friendly, helpful, efficient, and caring. I highly recommend Kim to anyone seeking a family law attorney.
