Jeremy helped me recover my losses in two months.
I had a complicated dispute that I brought to Jeremy. He took the time to understand my case. I never felt rushed. Jeremy laid out his strategy and kept me notified at every step. He notified me as soon as there was a development, and then laid out a roadmap for what would probably happen next. His predictions were accurate. Without Jeremy, I would have had nothing, but with his help I deposited a large check today.

Great Representation.
Jeremy is a very sharp, knowledgeable, patient and caring attorney. Words can't describe how thankful I am for his representation. He diligently review the reams of documents I sent him and used what he discovered as leverage to negotiate a settlement three times the initial offer I got from the managers of my liquidated investment. Thank you Jeremy!

Top Notch Attorney
Top Notch Attorney Jeremy took on our challenging case to go through the process of  litigation.  He was able to help us achieve a settlement out of court.  Jeremy was knowledgeable, efficient, and detail oriented, backed up with tremendous care for our best interest.  This was an emotional case after the loss of our father.  Jeremy took us under his wing giving us sage advice that felt very fatherly; as if we were his daughters.  We felt confident that we were in the best of hands as he guided us to put closure on our case.  The extra bonus when working with him is his witty sense of humor and compassion that will keep you smiling through the process.  On top of all that, his staff is just as amazing, knowledgeable, and always had a cheerful disposition!  You will definitely get the Nordstrom experience with this firm.

Brilliant and the very BEST!!!
Extraordinary, most brilliant attorney Jeremy Hyndman is the one you want to have for legal representation. My sister and I were almost left out of probate from our fathers will with the classic stepmother story. Our case turned out for the best possible scenario under the unfortunate circumstances, and we are eternally grateful for Jeremy’s wise, most knowledgeable guidance. It’s amazing to have an attorney of such world class high caliber right here in Walla Walla, WA. Jeremy Hyndman and team is who you definitely want, and you can be assured you have the very BEST!

Securities law suit
Jeremy Hyndman was selected by me by pure chance, from the computer. I asked several friends for a referral and none had personal experience. After a telephone interview my wife and I met with him and felt confident that he would represent us well, which he did. I was amazed at the documentation he accumulated and long hours he must have put in. Our case was not high profile and chances for a win were at best 50/50. We received a fair settlement and walked away with a great respect for his hard work and pleasant personality. I would highly reccomend him. Richard.V, MD

Outstanding service all the way through!
Outstanding legal advice, follow through and payout. Jeremy Hyndman is by far the most responsive, tenacious and communicative attorney I have worked with in my 30 years in business. He was able to get a settlement that was three times larger than we were initially offered. Perhaps more importantly he took the burden of dealing with a very difficult situation off our plate and let us know exactly what was happening every step of the way.

actually cared
Mr. Hyndman represented himself to my wife and I in polite professional manner that you could only ask for. He went out of his way to make sure we understood the positives and potential negatives in a law suit. He painted NO blue sky, but always made you feel, that he had total control on what he was doing for us. He was always a phone call away, and numerous times , called us just to see how we were doing. I have used several attorneys, legal firms, over the years with marginal success, with no personal interest, you're just a number or another victim. But with Mr. Hyndman, you could not help knowing, he was doing, exactly what he said he would do. Our case involved trying to recoup our retirement losses, from a very poorly mismanaged, unethical investment firm. What seemed impossible at the time to my wife, and I must admit and myself. Mr. Hyndman was able to settle the case with a very positive ending, without going to trial. At the end of the day, isn't that what anyone wants, a truthful attorney with compassion, personality and a win. We highly recommend Mr. Hyndman. Glad we found him.

I recommend Jeremy Hyndman
I must say that I was extremely happy with and appreciative of the service that I received from Mr. Hyndman in regard to the resolution of a very complicated and protracted investment situation. Mr. Hyndman clarified the situation, renegotiated my settlement to a much more favorable one, and then persisted through the delays and barriers until he achieved a positive outcome. I highly recommend his services. AB

ONLY REASON FOR ONE STAR IS BECAUSE THEY WOULDNT ALLOW NO STARS
WORST UNEDUCATED UNINFORMED SELF INTITLED CARES FOR HIS OWN POCKETS ABOVE ANYTHING ELSE AND WILL MAKE SURE THE CONTRACT STATES THIS IN HIS FAVOR. DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND DO NOT ALLOW THIS JOKE OF A LAWYER TO RESPRESENT YOU AND LITTERALLY TAKE ANY OTHER ATTORNEY AS HE WAS AND HAS BEEN BY A ROOKIE.

"Although new to Avvo it is immediately obvious that Mr. Hyndman has a great deal of experience. The answer I just reviewed was accurate, analytic, and customized to the needs of the Avvo asker. These are exactly the qualities that every client would look for when hiring an attorney. Mr. Hyndman's language abilities in German and Mandarin are also unusual of potential enormous value."
