I'm Reidar Hammond.
I'm a Criminal Defense lawyer.
I've been defending criminal cases for 30 years.
I have 50 Jury Trials under my belt.
Four of those were Murder cases.
I represent people.
I represent people who have been accused of things they did not do.
I also represent people who are good people, but who have made mistakes.
I work against a justice system that degrades, devalues, and dehumanizes people.
I strive to not let that happen to any of my clients.
I've Never been a prosecutor.
I never plan to be.
I believe that every person is worthy of dignity and respect and treat everybody accordingly.
I strive to leave people better than I found them.
I'll fight hard for you,
I'll always give you the one on one attention your case deserves.
I'll always give you the unvarnished truth about your case.
