Review Stephen Hamilton

  • Excellent Family Law Attorney

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Courtney Booth

    I was referred to Mr. Hamilton by a friend who said he was the best there is in the county. I had represented myself throughout my divorce and then after several custody modifications later. I finally needed help and the advice of someone who knew what they were doing in a contentious custody battle. Mr. Hamilton was upfront, honest, and provided me with a spectrum of outcomes, never giving me any false hope. I tend to over analyze and prepare for the worst, which he could immediately sense. He reassured me throughout the process to keep me from over analyzing. The end result was a result that I could have never imagined possible on my own and I am entirely thankful for his assistance. He has superb communication skills and by the way he interacts in the court room, you can see how well respected he is in the county as a family law attorney. His staff is friendly and kind; always making you feel welcome. It isn't stuffy and no one makes you feel like your situation is less important than the next client. It was one of the best decisions I ever made when I hired him as my attorney.

    Steve helped our family through a very difficult time. He helped us with a guardianship situation. We can now move on to help our family and the minor child get into school, get medical help, and start living his life.

    Thank you so much.

  • Divorce settlement

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I was referred to Mr. Hamilton by a friend, and I will be ever grateful to her.
    I came to Mr. Hamilton a senior, emotionally fragile lady knowing nothing about our finances or the daily operation of a budget due to years of living with a controlling, abusive spouse.
    Mr. Hamilton guided me step by step through the process from locating the various accounts, to dividing up all the assets, and seeing that all aspects of the divorce settlement were carried out. He was always concerned about my physical and financial well-being.
    With Mr. Hamilton's help and encouragement, I went from a "nobody" to a strong confident woman who has learned to manage my finances and daily living affairs with self-confidence.
    I never felt Mr. Hamilton was out to prolong the process for his own personal gain. He was very knowledgeable, organized, and concise, and yet showed compassion and integrity.

  • BEST IN THE BUSINESS!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Steve

    Mr. Hamilton is the very best in the business when it comes to Family Law and Child Custody cases. Mine was a very contentious divorce involving my two children and several years of court battles for custody. Mr. Hamilton took my case after three prior attorneys had proven themselves under-qualified, inexperienced, or unmotivated. He took the necessary steps to put my case on track, and then followed through to get the very best possible outcome. He explains very clearly what to expect before each court appearance, and keeps his client well informed throughout the process. He has excellent communication skills, returns telephone calls in a timely manner, and his office staff is courteous and professional. Most importantly, Mr. Hamilton is a HUGE advocate for the children involved, always keeping their best interest at the forefront of the case. He is a Family Law Specialist, and has been for many years. Don't waste your time or money with any of the other "family law" attorneys in the area. Call Mr. Hamilton, and know you're in good hands.

  • The best!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Denise

    Stephen Hamilton has been my lawyer for over 4 years. He and his office staff have always been very thorough and honest with me whenever I have asked for his help with any issue. He has guided me through the process of child custody during a bad break up and just recently a guardianship. I will continue to use Stephen for any family law issue I may have and I will continue to recommend him to anyone needing a great lawyer.

  • Great advice ! Great job !

    I was recommended to Mr Hamilton by a previous client (close family friend) that was very happy with how he handled his hourly charge. And after my previous lawyer had wasted my entire retainer in less than two weeks with absolutely nothing to show for it, that was looking good for me .Mr Hamilton does not waste your money on frivolous charges and round up charges that are unnecessary .
    In the middle of the heated divorce after leaving the other attorney and trying to figure out what I was going to do I went for my free consultation.
    Mr Hamilton kept my emotions at bay in order to get the best outcome from my situation. I was over the top ecstatic with how my divorce ended. It was a little rough somewhere in the middle but with good recommendations from Mr Hamilton it kept me on the right path .Then with a follow up court hearing over child custody Mr Hamilton exceeded my expectations. I can't give Mr Hamilton a higher review in my opinion.

    Stephen Hamilton is the best Attorney I could have asked to have for my child custody proceedings. He met with me on numerous occasions to make sure that all of the facts of my case were clear and concise, and made me feel comfortable each time I was in his office. His staff is always charming and polite, and the homey feel of the office makes it a warm and easy experience. Mr. Hamilton's presence in the courtroom is palpable and it is easy to see that the other attorneys respect him greatly. Although I was fighting an uphill battle, he never treated my case as though I should expect to lose what I was asking for. From his staff and office to his prowess in the courtroom, I would highly recommend Stephen Hamilton to anyone looking for a family law attorney.

    I would highly recommend Steven Hamilton as an excellent Family Law Attorney. I hired him to represent our daughter in her divorce. Mr. Hamilton is extremely knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. He is articulate and skilled in the courtroom. Mr. Hamilton and his staff are outstanding in their responsive communication with their clients. He represented our daughter with the utmost integrity and his ability to obtain the best outcome for our daughter far exceeded our expectations.

  • When I needed a kick ass attorney, Steve came through

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Brad

    Eight years ago when my life was consumed by divorce, Steve was there for me. It was a difficult time, those were waters I’d never swam in before. He helped make sense of what was unfolding before me and gave me the confidence that I had someone on my side, championing my needs. Steve fought tenaciously for my rights as a father, ensuring what was best for my daughters and that my time with them was fair. He looked after my financial well being and shepherded me through to the other side of the divorce. I respect Steve for the straight shooter he is; I always got the good, the bad and the ugly from him.
    Since then I have had to call on Steve multiple times for assistance surrounding my Ex and custody. Recently there was another occasion to do so. Within minutes of sending his staff an email of questions and concerns I received a call with preliminary answers that were confirmed by Steve within hours, free of any charges. On previous occasions he has also been equally magnanimous with his time.
    I was represented by Steve with the passion and zeal expected when the most important aspects of our life weigh in the balance. I will continue to call on Steve for legal matters and would recommend him to anyone faced with Family Law needs.
