Excellent lawyer!
Colin Hackett with CRH law firm was exactly what I needed for the Workers Comp claim I was a part of. He was easy to understand and very empathetic to my case. I enjoyed working with him and Jeremy! They knew what steps to take and how to proceed with my case! I would highly recommend this law firm and Colin Hackett!! They were very patient with us and explained what needed doing!! Thank you!!

Colin is a phenomenal worker's comp. attorney!
So incredibly glad that I stumbled upon Colin Hackett on Avvo when I did. Long story short, I had gotten a worker's comp claim denied by Saif because of a poorly conducted IME, even though I had several doctors who knew what was going on with my wrist, and also agreed it was work related. Colin was able to get letters from the doctors I'd seen, and was able to make a good case for me. And in doing so, I got a good settlement out of it. He's also great with communicating and giving updates on the case. All in all, I'm very happy with having him represent me as an attorney. Thank you Colin!

Colin is a fair, honest, no nonsense man with integrity. He demonstrates wisdom in his profession. He is trustworthy and dependable. Colin helped me greatly in a workers compensation settlement. He got the job done in a timely manner. I would highly recommend to anyone needing assistance in this and anything similar to call upon him for guidance. He will get the job done for you. Thank you, Colin. It was a pleasure.

Great work ethic and very knowledgeable on workers comp laws in Oregon
I hire Colin after I had a knee injury at my previous employer. They denied my claim and soon after fired me(they gave another reason as why they fired me.). I contacted an attorney with no response. I soon after got in touch with Colin and he hit the road running. We were able to settle my case and he did everything he could to work for me. We would have won the case if we went to trial but me being off of work for 7 months took a toll on my finances. At that point we needed to do something to help with the finances since I wasn't cleared to go back to work. Also as a word of advice, be sure to talk to Colin before you choose your doctor, not all doctors are on your side. Our settlement was enough to pay the medical bills, attorney fees as well as replenish our bank account. Highly recommend Colin.

Very happy
Colin helped me through a complex legal battle with a previous employer who was out of state. Colin went above and beyond and got me a better outcome than I expected. He was exceptionally quick to respond to phone calls or emails and was always more than helpful in walking me through all of the processes occurring in my case. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone in need of a competent and reliable worker's comp attorney, he really had my back through a stressful time.

Best attorney I've had.
Colin is a skilled attorney that went right to work on my case. Colin made sure I was informed of the process of my case, and what I could expect from him and the system. I have referred people to Colin for their workers compensation legal needs, and will continue to do so.

Helpful and courteous
Colin was extremely helpful. He is knowledgable, calm and well spoken. He kept in great contact letting me know any updates and prompt with any paperwork. I would definitely recommend him.

Workers comp. against SAIF
Colin was helpful in answering all of my questions prior to hire offering an educated guidance of worker comp. laws. In front of the judge it was evident that Colin had done his research siting multiple cases that led to the judges decision in my favor. Over all I was very pleased with Mr. Hackett and the results he achieved. Thank you Colin.

Very disappointed in this attorney. Cause me stress and anxiety.
I hired Colin Hackett to represent me in a work comp case. He tried to negotiate an agreement with the insurance company. There was a potential agreement. Saif and my employer failed to follow through with the agreement. The settlement agreement was unacceptable at that point. Colin Hackett pressured me to take the quick cash settlement, that was not in my best interest. He seemed to be more interested in his fee, than being an ethical honest person and doing the right thing. Colin Hackett was unresponsive to my communication with him. He was put on notice that he would be fired. Colin Hackett has filed a lien against me for approximately $5100 for (according to his records) is 8.5 hours time. Over $600 per hour. In what world is that reasonable? Colin Hackett did not do a good job. He is in my opinion dishonest, unethical and unresponsive.

Response from Colin Hackett February 19, 2016
Hi Jeremy: I do not pressure clients in to quick cash settlements. You agreed to a settlement and it was a reasonable one. Then you unilaterally went back on the settlement without talking to me about it. You also did not take my calls or return my calls when I asked to speak with you about it. The settlement was reasonable and you agreed to it. I do not go back in settlements so I withdrew from representation of you. Then you wrote this bad review two months later as retribution becase I filed a lien for my attorney fee.
