Best Legal Representation I Have Ever Had!
Hunter & Team represent the best quality legal representation I have retained in my life - spanning employment, insurance, trust/probate, financial, disability, and personal injury, just to name from memory. While I had read of Hunter's extensive experience, thoughtful expertise, impeccable qualifications, and impressive results in my search for a top plaintiff's employment attorney, after our very first meeting, I knew he and his firm were the perfect fit for me and my needs - and Hunter made sure I knew it was mutual! While I had already obtained a retainer from a top 5 employment lawyer in California, it was Hunter's eagerness to "fight for the little guy," and specifically, me, that sold me. Despite holes in my case, Hunter took my case enthusiastically on the spot and always stayed sure to proactively keep me apprised - often compassionately inquiring into my overall well-being and expressing his sincere hopes for my future. After only working for my former employer for exactly just one week, Hunter's no-nonsense negotiations and willingness to "get his hands dirty" with "real work" generated me a successful settlement of over $100,000! Hunter has even helped me, since - free of charge - in areas outside his specialty. THANK YOU, HUNTER & TEAM!!

Best Lawyer to have representing you
I had a very difficult case to be represented on but Hunter, Tanya and their team did everything to win my case. They are the most honest and preceptive attorneys I have met. They are diligent in reviewing all aspects of your case and they prepare everything to represent you in the best way possible. I would recommend Hunter and Tanya to anyone who wants to be represented by an honest, forthright attorney. There is no one better to get you the best outcome that can be achieved.

Miserable lawsuit; great attorney
Lawsuits are miserable. That’s why a good attorney is critical and Hunter Pyle is an excellent attorney. He knows his craft but I expect any reasonable attorney knows his craft. What made Hunter stand out in my experience was his wise advice and tactics around the whole process. At the end of the process, I felt that we had made the very best of the circumstance into which I had been thrust. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

Practical and Conscientious Attorney
Although my situation and eventual settlement is subject to enduring gag clauses, Hunter was a very pragmatic and good attorney. He was able to give me concise legal advise coupled with likely scenarios. Ultimate decisions were up to me, but he was a good attorney to advise me along the way. I would recommend him should you have a case against an Employer. He does not represent Employers.

On my side.....
I highly recommend Hunter for your labor/employment situation. Before I met Hunter I had reached out to numerous attorneys. Two did not show much interest in even hearing my case. Another gave me an hour free phone consultation and suggest a follow up meeting to discuss my case in detail which cost me $350/hr. The meeting was a waste of money. That attorney basically repeated what he said on the phone and I was under the impression that I knew more about the law than him. He kept saying "that was a good point" and looking at his “law” book. I was at my ends, with a rough situation at work, I was feeling helpless. I talked with my psychologist and she recommended Hunter to me. After bad experiences with other attorneys, I was hesitant to speak with another attorney so I put it off until I got laid off from my work (with no fault to me). Reluctantly I called Hunter. He listened to me and believed in me. For the first time I felt less helpless. I had someone that would stand by me. The opposite attorney was a bully, but Hunter maintained his calm demeanor, kept me balanced but was still not afraid to stand up to the opposing counsel. What I like about Hunter and his firm: 1. His confident, the fact that he took my case on contingency shows that he had huge confidence with my case and that he believed in me. This made a huge different in my attitude towards my case, and confirmed that what I felt about what I went through was valid. 2. He is very knowledgeable in labor law and has extensive experience which he brought to the table 3. He stands by you, he becomes a trusted friend not just an attorney 4. He kept me focused on what is good for my well being, not about the case, but me. What I want to accomplish with this and kept reminding me of that goal. 5. Hunter is not the only one that treats you with respect and friendship, but his whole team does as well. 6. He made me at ease during the whole two years of the process. I cannot speak high enough about Hunter.

I Highly Recommend Hunter Pyle
Hunter Pyle and his team are truly outstanding. I highly recommend Hunter to anyone who is looking for a smart, dedicated, hard working, professional, and knowledgeable lawyer. Hunter helped me every step of the way with understanding the legal process, filing my lawsuit, and helping me to obtain a successful judgment. Hunter is not only a remarkable attorney, but also a great man who really helped me through a difficult time in my life. I can't thank him enough and I can't offer enough praise for all that he did for me. I will go to Hunter whenever I need legal advice in the future and I recommend him to all my friends, family, and anyone else I meet who needs a great lawyer to help them!

Great experience. Phenomenal attorney.
"I feel really compelled to write this comment in regards to my experience being represented by Hunter Pyle. When I came to Hunter, my professional career and life was on the line. I wasn't sure how to explain the full extent of where my life was going to end up, (1) without an attorney, and (2) without that attorney having the bravery to fight against the powers of the police department and their attorneys. I explained to Hunter that I was discriminated against, there were multiple people involved, and he came highly recommended as the attorney for the job. Hunter listened and accepted my case. I was floored at my experience with Hunter. Hunter immersed himself in my case and fought it with as much passion, as I was passionate about what had occurred to me. He was in such a zone during my case, I never realized that he may have had additional cases. I once overheard an uninvolved attorney ask Hunter through passing why was he fighting so hard on my case, when my case was probably going to settle at some point. That goes to show how passionate Hunter is :) Hunter's passion actually caught the attention of his peers. It was almost like Hunter was never asked that question. Hunter did not retreat, he did not slow down, and he did not look to settle anything. His goal was simply to right the wrong that occurred. Hunter and I shared some tough emotional conversations. However, each step of the way, he was up front, he was honest, he explained my options, and always listened. I was definitely empowered by him. There are great attorneys in the field. "Hunter, you are among those great attorneys that share a gift that can't be explained." I highly recommend Hunter. His bravery, knowledge, wisdom, and compassion is far, few, and between. "Hunter, my life is saved because of the role you played in it." Thank you so much. DeWayne
