A True Professional who will lead the way for you.
I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Daniel during my recent hearing. From day one, I couldn't have been happier with my experience working with Daniel and his entire team he has working alonside him. Prior to meeting with Daniel, I discussed my case with 5 or 6 other potential attorneys and Daniel was the only one who offered any sort of follow up calls or emails asking about my case and if he could be of any help to me? To me, that was a true testament to his moral character. Going to court is obviously a very intimidating experience for most people especially, if you've never had to hire an attorney, before. From my initial phone call with Daniel, he was extremely honest, patient, and he took the time to explain every single detail to me and what I should expect to happen along the way in my case. His attention to detail, case-building skills, composure, and outright professionalism were second to none! Daniel is very knowledgeable, assertive, and confident in his profession. One aspect that really stood out for me was his availability and how quickly his response time was when I did have a question for him. I researched quite a few other attorneys prior to hiring Daniel and one very common complaint that I read over and over again was how long other attorney's seemed to take to respond back to you with an answer. Daniel always responded to me in less than 24 hours with an answer. Obviously, I realize that I am not Daniel's only client that he was working with at the time, but he always made me feel like I was his only client! It seemed like he took a personal interest in my case and saw it through to the very end. His ability to listen and communicate with me was critical in my choice in hiring his firm. Daniel and his entire team really did a tremendous job along the way and I couldnt speak any higher of his law firm. If you are faced with the unfortunate decision of having to hire an attorney, I would highly recommend hiring Daniel and his team. They are there for you and they really do care

Nitasha is a ROCK STAR!
I had an outstanding experience at the Law Office of Daniel Hutto, particularly due to Nitasha, who specializes in family law. Her deep expertise and intelligence were evident as she adeptly navigated complex family law issues with clarity and strategic acumen. The affordability of the services in relation to the high-quality results achieved made the legal assistance particularly valuable. Nitasha's commitment to understanding and addressing my needs was exceptional, providing not just top-notch legal advice but also genuine emotional support throughout the process. The entire staff was professional and welcoming, contributing to a thoroughly positive experience. Nitasha, with her blend of professionalism and personal touch, significantly eases the challenges of family law proceedings. Highly recommended for anyone seeking effective, compassionate, and economically sensible legal representation in family law.

Nitasha, Counsel
The last five years I had a diff Atty. I’ve been fighting in court to get custody back of my daughter. I spent over 100K in Atty fees and have not gotten the results that I wanted or were best. The courts does not care what you bring to their attention or if you do. They do not make good decisions for the best interest. I felt so drained and defeated and overwhelmed. I cried so many countless days, and praying. Some days I wanted to give up. But I never did. I kept fighting every day. I’m glad I did. I thought about seeking diff Atty for counsel to represent since my recent years were not successful with my past Atty. So I reached out and spoke to the office. The consultation went well with Shannon, an Atty. She listened to my concerns and she gave advice of how to proceed. I was connected with Nitasha who is my new Counsel. I paid my minimal retainer fee. I was apprehensive to take this issue to court because of my past history with the courts that haven’t been successful. I kept reminding myself that this is what’s best for the child, and it needs to be heard in court for a change. I knew this was my one only chance to get custody back. So I took the leap, and I proceeded. Nitasha is honest. She is kind and realistic. She cares about your case and whats best for the child. No matter how many calls or emails I sent or requested. She never showed she was annoyed with my concerns. She kept me informed every step of the process. Even moreso in the loop than my previous attorney would have done! I felt confident, safe and happy. I got the results that I’ve been wanting for the past five years. I entered into a settlement and didnt have to go to trial. I got custody back of my daughter and I got off child support!!!!! She made it seem so easy and seamlessly. She is very professional and respectful. This was the best decision I ever could’ve made and I only wish I did it sooner. That’s the only thing I’m kicking myself in the butt for. This office does not nickel and dime you like I have seen in the past with my experience with other attorney offices. The price is very reasonable. If I can say one thing is, I recommend this Office, and please request to work with Nitasha! She is phenomenal. She’s very intelligent in many versatile ways. She is such a blessing! she may think that her work was small, but it was huge in my heart. There’s no way I can thank her enough.

My experience with the Law Office of Daniel Hutto regarding child custody was truly transformative. Attorney Hutto and his team not only navigated the legal complexities with expertise but also offered unwavering emotional support. Their compassionate approach eased the inherent stress, fostering a positive atmosphere. The overall impact on my well-being and the stability of my family has been overwhelmingly positive. I am grateful for their professional guidance, securing not just legal success but also emotional reassurance during a challenging time. I highly recommend for their holistic approach to family law matters just like mine. You will not regret it!

Highly Recommend!
Going through divorce can be both traumatic and terrifying. My case had so many moments that brought fear and anxiety especially around custody and overall cost. In my initial call, Shannon assured me that I had nothing to worry about and she was right. John Carbone was the lawyer assigned to my case and he was nothing but professional and consistent with his messaging and counsel to me. My only regret is not trusting and following his advice earlier in the process. He accomplished the task with enthusiasm and care. I had to re-hire him for something after our initial decree was signed and he was able to get everything taken care easily and painlessly. I always knew where I stood in the process and would highly recommend John Carbone!

Happy and relievedwitht the outcome
When I first left a very bad situation and wanted to get divorce, i really didnt know what to do or expect. I had a very traumatic experience and Sean and the whole office were very patient and took the time to help me through the whole process, but I also felt like they actually cared about my situation and everything going on.

Review of attorney: Alexis Lindvall of Daniel Hutto firm.
My experience through my divorce case with Alexis, Chealsea and the rest of the team was incredible. They handled it very professionally. When I needed advice or information to help me make difficult legal decisions on my case they were always there for me. Everything has been done on time and on point. I highly recommend Daniel's legal team.

Than you
Daniel assisted me in converting a traffic infraction from a criminal to a civil nature. He helped me a lot, and I can't express how much I appreciate his commitment to making my goals a reality. As a criminal defense lawyer, I would strongly advise him. He answers nicely and is very open and honest in every circumstance.

Review of attorney: Sean Campbell of Daniel Hutto firm.
Prior to hiring Sean, I had retained multiple attorneys and spent hours researching boutique firms specializing in family law. Finding the right lawyer proved to be more difficult than I expected. I am the custodial parent with shared legal rights. Co-parenting became stressful once my ex was married and I was constantly dealing with harassment from her spouse. In addition, I discovered an incident had taken place in my ex’s home which involved crimes of a serious nature. I was extremely concerned for my child’s safety and needed to file an emergency motion. During the initial custody hearings my ex’s attorney was very aggressive. He has a reputation for being cantankerous, rude and outspoken. Only 1 of the 4 attorneys I previously hired was able to successfully litigate against him. I grew more concerned because I was running out of time. Fortunately, I found Sean Campbell. Partner with David Hutto’s firm. I was thoroughly impressed with the reviews, so I scheduled a consultation. I met with Shannon a principal partner of Hutto. I explained to her the severity of my case and was curious to know if the firm had any experience litigating against the opposing attorney. She knew exactly who he was and recommended Sean with no hesitation. I had to pay a premium, but it was well worth it. The opposing counsel’s theatrics did not phase Sean. He knew exactly how to handle this character. Sean tactfully exposed the truth behind all the ridiculous accusations and excuses they had prepared as a defense. He kept his cool and was able to clearly articulate all my concerns to the judge. Long story short, now I have sole decision-making rights of my child. Sean is no joke. I was impressed with his level of integrity. Much obliged Sir. I can’t thank you enough. I also must give credit to his Paralegal Natasha. I got a response to every call and email I sent on time. Sean is highly competent in family law. Having dealt with attorneys from the highest rated firms I consider Sean among the upper echelon. C.V.

Excellent Representation
I was super stressed with handling my post-divorce case. However, the Law Office of Daniel Hutto helped out and made the experience pass quickly! Sean Campbell and Kristine Williams were a huge help in this process. By far, the best people to help in these situations. There was no "limbo" phase, I wanted business handled and it got handled. Every step was explained and nothing was handled that I didn't know about. Thank you Sean, thank you Kristine, and thank you to everyone who helped me through the stress of my post-divorce case. I always talk about how much help I received and I will be telling everyone I meet that needs a lawyer, to go see the excellent staff at The Law Office of Daniel Hutto.

Lacey and staff very professional
Currently working with Lacey on a custody case. Very good communication and takes the time to go through the options and how to proceed. Being out of state is tough, I do better in face to face visits. Everything was relayed with haste and purpose. Just went through the first portion of our case and couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. Everything was laid out and very well organized. Made sure the questioning and such was as smooth as possible. Will not be talked over in the courtroom but responds with respect and tact.

Completely satisfied
I could not have selected a better team to handle my divorce case. Shannon, Daniel, and the rest of the team over at the Law Office of Daniel Hutto were incredible. From the initial call, throughout the process, and even after finalization of my divorce the team handled everything with the highest regard to professionalism. All communication was timely, direct, and extremely actionable. Because of this I feel very satisfied with the outcome and the level of protection I feel moving forward. Strongly recommend a consultation if you are in need of their services.

Amazing Lawyers and Staff!
This law firm and staff are exceptional. Daniel, Shannon and John are intelligent and compassionate, and do everything possible to help their clients navigate the hardest times in their lives. Their team is fair, honest and straight forward. They respond quickly and efficiently, but don't waste your money and unnecessarily increase costs. Many lawyers will tell you what you want to hear to get your business--not what you need to hear to get the best results. However, this office always has your best interests at heart and provides the most reasoned and thorough advice. They treat their clients with respect and empathy and it is obvious how passionate they are about their work and clients. You will never be disappointed you chose this firm. I would recommend them to anyone dealing with a difficult family law or criminal case.

I’ve been working with Sean for a few months now and he has always been upfront honest and transparent with me about anything going on potential options and potential setbacks that’s not some thing I’ve come across talking to other attorneys but it’s definitely something I really appreciate because I like to know everything out in front of me and the people here have been very sympathetic towards me and my case they gone above and beyond anything I expected them to do and they’ve been a very accommodating every step of the way
