Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney & Living Will
Daniel spent time with us to determine our needs in such a professional manner I would not hesitate to refer him to others. We appreciate his expertise in this area and walking us through the different aspect of writing and implementing our final wishes.

Thank you!!
Daniel is very good with helping his clients understand their options and the best way to proceed. He answers every question they have and makes sure they are comfortable with the decisions they make. Having never gone through the process before, I never understood how important and how many details are involved. With his experience and understanding of how much we want to protect our family, he made going through the process a very pleasant experience.

Well worth the price!! (Hired for criminal defense)
All in all he's reasonably priced & straight forward. No sugar coating and he doesn't beat around the bush. Communication was a little hectic but it's very understandable considering how busy a lawyer is and the system at the jail was all out of wack. When you call him about questions and concerns he doesn't rush you! That's a huge plus for me being as I've had quite a few attorneys for different reasons and they've all seemed too busy to hold more than a 5min phone call.

Attorney Daniel Hamilton
I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. I was clueless about the entire legal process. Daniel said "trust me I promise I'm going to take care of you". I witnessed compassion & genuine concern for my life from this attorney. Daniel delivered his promise and he is not ONLY about money.

Happy bride to be because Attorney Daniel Hamilton
Attorney Daniel Hamilton is a great person to work with. He has a great personality and he is honest. He doesn't try to sugarcoat anything. He will work with you financially. My fiancée was facing 6 years with a felon in possession of a handgun charge. Mr. Hamilton managed to get him off with no jail time and 2 years of probation. If my fiancée had gone to jail we wouldn't be getting married this coming July. I compared Mr. Hamilton to David and Goliath with Mr. Hamilton being David. He will work hard for you to get the results that you are hoping for. Mr. Hamilton saved our wedding day!!!!!!
