Scott did an excellent job. He was available as needed and always listened. He responded quickly to e-mails or phone calls. He didn't just "tell me what to do." Instead, he listened to my input and helped me make informed decisions. I always felt as though he had time for me as a client.

Mr Hamblin is one of the best attorneys I have ever had the honor of meeting. He is on top of all the laws and changes. He understand how hard and scary a lawsuit is and is very compassionate to everyone involved. He did represent me in a case that no one thought I had a chance of winning. What I had been accused of had happened 5 years prior and I had no record of anything. From my first consultation with him till our trial day he was up front and honest with me. He never gave up and said this is just a waste of time. After every meeting he told me that all the facts going forward bad or good. He did a most awesome job preparing me for court. I was not ask one thing that we had not gone over. His presence and professionalism in court was exceptional. He didn't let me be badgered by the other attorney when he would try to ask me the same question several times by rewording the same question over and over. The outcome of my case was in my favor. He took a case he had nothing to go on but the plaintiffs evidence that had happened five years prior and won. shoild I ever need a lawyer again Mr Hamblin will definitely be the one I call. He is one of the very best lawyer there is.

I called Mr. Hamblin to represent my family member, When we went in to have a meeting, Mr. Hamblin was very honest said he felt that he could represent him and help with the matter that he had been charged with, I was so glad that I had contacted Mr. Hamblin on this matter, because he did just what he said that he would do, he did so in a timely and professional matter, and the expense was very minimal considering that this could have been a life changing matter. I want to Say a big Thank you Mr. Hamblin for your services, I hope that I never have to contact you for anything like this again, but if I ever do I can assure that I will call Mr. Hamblin once again.. I think you are a Great Attorney and Thanks once again for your services..

The title says it all on this review. I have used Scott Hamblin on a number of legal issues over the course of many years. He never fails to perform beyond expectations. Scott Hamblin is widely known for being prepared and thorough. This was true in every instance that I needed his services including most recently in 2015. He is not a 9-5 type and it shows in his communications. I was always informed on every action he was taking on my behalf and this communication was personal and not submitted exclusively by letter or email. He would speak to me after hours which is a real boost for a person involved in legal matters. Scott Hamblin is personable and direct. He has great knowledge of the law and puts his clients first in the legal equation. I find him to be of the highest ethical standards who advocates with discipline. A couple of observations I have made about Scott separates him from most attorneys. The first is that he is not egocentric. He is professional but presents himself as a person who listens and has humility. Secondly he advocates efficiently and is not a wasteful type. He understands the value of money and tries with great effort to stay within budgetary constraints. You know every step of the way how the case is going and how your money is being spent. No secrets and no curve balls from Scott. He practices law with great passion. I am very selective about seeking legal assistance. I want the best attorney I can get for the job at hand. In every instance I have needed an attorney over the last decade he is the man. I have only used two attorneys in mid Missouri in the last 15 years. The other attorney always has recommended Scott for the very reasons that I have cited here. Scott Hamblin comes prepared. He is the only attorney I will use! If anyone wishes to challenge the validity of my statements or the sincerity of this review please contact me via my email and I will open up my legal files to show you how good he is at practicing the law. Is this a bit over the top? I think not because there are a lot of Attorneys out there practicing law for the wrong reasons. When you find a diamond in a pile of stones you don't hide it, you share. I recommend Scott Hamblin to everyone who needs a great attorney. I have done so in the past and will continue to do so in the future. He is one of the best attorneys in the state of Missouri.

I have had to retain Scott several times in the past few years, and every time charges against me have either been dropped, or significantly reduced. The last case I had to hire him for was DWI, which he got dropped completely.
I retained him for a speeding ticket I got in STL last year when I was going 30 over on an interstate, it went from looking like I would lose my license to a ticket for "Illegal Parking" within days of hiring Scott.
About 9 years ago I had to retain him for what was being labeled "Extortion" then later changed to a grand Larceny charge. After a few weeks of work and me never having to personally appear in court, Scott got the charges dropped.
I can't recommend Scott enough. I do anytime someone needs legal advice, and not one of those people has been disappointed yet. He is professional and effective. Can't ask for much more in a lawyer.

Hiring Mr. Hamblin was a great choice. I had fired my previous lawyer for not keeping me informed or calling me back. Mr. Hamblin kept in constant contact with me and informed me of every step he made or was going to make. He was very professional and cared about my case. He fought for me where other lawyers wouldn't. His knowledge is above any other lawyer I've ever had and I'll use him again should the need arise.

I was referred to Attorney Scott Hamblin by a trusted member of the Missouri Children's Division. When I came to my initial meeting I found that a previous supervisor of mine, who I had a positive experience with, was now working for him. These things indicated to me that this attorney was trustworthy and had a good reputation, that made me comfortable moving forward with these services.
While my case was not difficult, it was extremely important and sensitive. Scott paid attention to correspondence throughout the case and made sure to evaluate any issues he saw. Even though the evidence was clear, Scott made sure to meet with me before the court date to thoroughly prepare for any incidents that may arise. I was impressed and reassured by this. I felt all the bases were covered, that we were fully prepared for the court date and that I was prepared to take the stand. The court session went smoothly and the ruling was in my favor. Some of the scenarios we prepared for never arose but I was glad that Scott took the time to be prepared for them anyway, regardless of whether in his experience he thought a ruling would be in our favor.
Before this experience I anticipated that a lawyer would only do as much work as absolutely necessary and instead rely on appeals, extensions, etc... My experience with Scott was that he would do whatever he could to avoid that and to take care of anything that could be addressed the first time. My case may have been considered an easy case, but I felt that the seriousness of it was respected. Some lawyers may not have a positive rapport with clients because they view a matter differently than the client, who it personally affects, but Scott and his staff took care to communicate with me in a way that showed understanding of how these matters affected me.
I can be a difficult and demanding person, especially when something is as important and serious and this matter was. The services I received were professional and not once did I feel the need to demand something more or different than I received. If my ruling had been unfavorable, I would've relied on Scott and his team to help me further navigate the legal system and reach a positive resolution. I would recommend Scott, his staff and this firm to anyone in the area seeking the kind of services they provide.

Scott is such an easy person to talk with and can easily explain legal stuff in a leymans terms. Scott is dedicated, trustworthy and listens to everything in a case. Above all of this, Scott has a positive attitude and puts the customer first.

Mr. Hamblin has been my lawyer for 12 years now. He was my lawyer for my divorce, which was not an easy "we agree on everything" divorce, it was a very hard and ugly divorce, I was very pleased with the outcome and he was able to get me what I was asking for. I have used him several times since then, at least 5 other cases, and have had nothing but good experiences, he is very knowledgeable and keeps me informed of my case constantly. There was never a time I needed to get a hold of him and he did not return my call in a timely manner. I've trusted him with very important and meaningful information about my life that he needed to know for certain cases and he has never misused that information.

Attorney Scott Hamblin works tirelessly on his cases and gets to know each and every one of his clients personally. When necessary he sacrifices his personal time to make sure he is always prepared to defend you no matter the circumstances. Mr. Hamblin fights for the life, liberty and most importantly, justice of the everyday person and citizen of this great nation.
Mr. Hamblin is able to accomplish this not just because of his conviction for upholding justice for the common person but because of his expertise and unequivocal knowledge of the law and court procedures. He has an uncanny, unique ability to simplify complex issues and make them understandable to other attorneys, judges and juries.
He has spent a good portion of his life here in Jefferson City as a former all-star prosecutor and has fostered a collegial rapport with his associates working in the courts in Missouri. He has earned their respect and listen closely when he engages a topic. A good attorney when someone is in a very bad position is a necessity that everyone has a right too. When you employ Mr. Hamblin you don’t get a good attorney you get a GREAT attorney that will fight for you till your case is resolved.
