He really fought for me!
Hunter was on my side through a somewhat complicated matter with an employer. He was pretty quick, incredibly caring and thorough in dealing with the other party. He was a really great asset to have on my side.

The best to have in your corner
Hunter helped us with a very difficult situation of which I had no idea how to resolve. He got us through it and listened even when we were a bit frustrated. I would recommend him to anyone needing good legal advice for any employment matter. Deb Kennedy

Helped in a time of need.
I was able to go an talk to Hunter. He listened when no one else did. He helped me walk through what actions I could take and assisted me in anyway he could. He would call and answer questions and reach out via phone call almost every email just to make sure I was alright. He is a lawyer who treated me like a human being and really empathized with my problems and my fight.
