Well that was so nice! But when you get your case completely dismissed.... I have enjoyed working with you and you have a great sense of humor. It's easy working with clients like you that help get me everything I need to pursue their claims. I look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks

Amazing attorney
Mrs. Hutton is a straight shooting lawyer. She is frank in what the law says about your case. She explains what can and what can’t be done to the letter of the law. No hidden fees. She takes a personal interest in every client she represents. An absolutely amazing attorney.

Excellent Lawyer!
After reading the reviews I was sure I needed Tempie as my lawyer. I was not let down. After making the initial phone call with Tempie herself, I was in her office within the hour and she begin paperwork immediately! Within 3 weeks my case was complete. Tempie's office was upfront about the prices and costs so if things did not go my way there would be no surprises. I felt like the costs were reasonable and fair. Tempie was professional, empathetic and upfront, all things I appreciated. I will always recommend her to anyone needing a lawyer, she gets the job done!

Attorney
I was in desperate need of an attorney and I saw Tempie had a five star review. I gave her a call and after setting up a consultation with her I decided to hire her. Tempie will tell it like it is. I didn’t get exactly what I wanted but things could of been a lot worse for me. If you want a good attorney that is caring and will definitely go to bat for you, I highly recommend Tempie.

Caring, Compassionate and Fierce!
Temple went above and beyond on several occasions to help with my legal situation. She gave free consultations and squeezed us in without an appointment because she had a small window. Most attorneys will not even see you without making an appointment, so we appreciated that she took the time and her patience in what we felt was an emergent situation. She fights ethically and with moral. She is fierce and rightly so, she will not let up and is definitely the one you want in your corner when your back is against the wall. We are so grateful for Tempie and her team for all their advice, help and representation.

She’s who you need in your corner!
Tempie is a head strong woman, she will tell you the TRUTH this is vital for your case and for preparation in court. Tempie works hard on every case she takes on and stays after hours into the early morning sometimes just to make sure she stays on top of it all! She will make sure your voice is heard in the courtroom! We appreciate all the hard work she has poured into our case, if you’re looking for someone to represent you in court she is the one for you she will not stop fighting until the job is done!

Absolutely, Tempie!
My husband and I found ourselves in quite a spot when trying to secure visitation with his two children. We were unable to see them without threats or without his rights being denied. Tempie stepped in and saved the day. She was able to help us get our peace back in our lives and secure his rights. She was very professional, and we were confident in her ability. She accomplished exactly what we wanted and needed. We are very thankful for her help and her expertise. She knows the law well! Would we hire her again if needed? Absolutely. We strongly recommend her to anybody needing her legal help.
