She was intelligent, sensitive, efficient and affordable. Would definitely hire her again! I had a great outcome.

Ms. Hammel represented me in several cases involving alleged civil ordinance violations filed by the state, all of which were eventually dismissed by the court or the prosecutor. We fought the law and WE won!
She has also drafted end-of-life documents, including a will, living trust and power of attorney for health care. I was well-satisfied.

I have hired Attorney Hammel several times over the past 7-8 years to handle personal and business debt. I have also referred her services to friends and family. In addition she has been a good go-to-person for other legal questions and referrals outside her specialty. She is very busy and may take some time to respond to my email or phone call, but when she does her responses are very informative and thorough. Her knowledge is priceless and worth the wait. No matter how ignorant my questions sometimes sound, she has always been professional in her responses. She doesn't sugar coat the situation and always tells the truth even when it may be hard to hear. I trust her and highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional legal advice.
Christopher Kuehn, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known PK for awhile. We met defending protesters in Madison. She not only is a great lawyer but has great management skills as she helped organize and maintain 50 lawyers (all from different firms) in a co operative defense association. This was not her primary area of practice, but she did an excellent job. I would wholly trust her to handle any matter involving myself, friends, or family.
Jenna Morrison, Bankruptcy and debt Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. She is very professional under trying litigation circumstances. She is very knowledgeable about complicated divorce issues and she will fight until the end of trial to get a client what he or she needs. She is also very experienced in the area of bankruptcy and debt relief.
