About me


My practice is focused on defending serious felonies, these include child molestation, drug trafficking, and vehicular homicide. While many of my clients have already been charged with a criminal offense, some are simply being investigated of such crimes. My office is located in Omak, but I handle cases throughout the state.

    Ron Hammett is the best lawyer you've never heard of. Ron is a small town lawyer with big city skills. He doesn't have the marketing other lawyers do, but when it comes to legal skills Ron has those in spades. I've seen Ron in action in court and he is excellent. I've also served on a Bar Association committee with him and know his intellect is superior to other lawyers. Finally, I know he can get results---how many defense lawyers do you know who have tried a murder case and won? I only know one and his name is Ron Hammett.
