Getting sued is never fun. Emotions run high. You don't always win -- even if you are in the right.
Bill helped me through a difficult situation, calmly explaining alternatives, helping me evaluate choices, and keeping me from "going off the deep end".
I appreciate his professional demeanor, his wisdom and his availability.
Bill is also one to seek help when he does not know an answer -- MUCH better than "guessing" or trying to bluff. No one is an expert on everything. It's important to know what you don't know!
I'd strongly recommend Bill to anyone seeking legal assistance.

I hired Bill Hunt to help me obtain a divorce from a very hostile husband. Bill’s manner is calm and forthright. I felt I could be open and honest with him without judgment. He explained the steps we needed to take in ways that were understandable. I was informed and knew what to expect. He responded quickly to my e-mails and calls. Bill is very likeable. You are in good hands with him.

My former husband and I had been married 20+ years and had two children. I had talked with a few attorneys regarding my rights, ways to proceed and expected outcomes. One suggested I do a few things that could be considered a little less than legal in order to increase the court ruling in my favor. Another was determined to make it into a case much larger than I was comfortable. I simply wanted an amicable, fair, end to what was a difficult marriage. I met Bill and he actually listened to me. He considered what had been good and bad about the marriage and cared about helping me create a future life that was better. He heard me and respected my wishes when I said that I didn't want my children involved. He didn't judge me for not having acted sooner or question my motives. He was knowledgeable and took the time I needed to understand all sides of what might happen and how we might proceed. His staff treated me like I was the only case in the office and most importantly, Bill always called back the same day. He was quick to inform me of what the other attorney was saying and didn't enter into any decisions without my awareness. A divorce holds so many levels of stress and Bill, gratefully, didn't add fuel to the fire. He was never shocked but what was going on and kept me calm, confident, and able to make clear decisions. He understood the dynamics of our family relationships and respected each of us in the process. I'm grateful to Bill for his calm way of proceeding.

Attorney Hunt is an ethical and compassionate attorney who thrives in litigation settings. I have never seen his level of representation anything less than ardent. The respect between he and his clients is mutual, and I would recommend William Hunt and the W.H. Hunt Legal Groups to anyone looking for legal representation.
