Mr. Hammerschmidt is professional, prompt, and extremely knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with the information and legal counsel he provided for me and I know, without a doubt, that my case would have ended far less favorably for me if I had not had his guidance and representation. I highly recommend Mr. Hammerschmidt.
Law firm response:
Thank you for your confidence it me. As with virtually all clients a successful result requires the dedication and commitment of the attorney and the client. You did everything I asked of you and I did my legal best -- a winning combination.

Mr. Hammerschmidt was very understanding and treated me with respect and was always encouraging. He told me from the very beginning that he would do his very best for me and my case. He is an honorable man and a man of his word. If I was ever in a situation again and needed counsel I would definitely call Jeff. He worked my case like it was himself on trial and was able to get all of my charges reduced to misdemeanors. I owe alot to Jeff and his excellent work! If you are in need he is your man.
Law firm response:
Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts. I truly appreciate the compliments. Your comments reflect our firm's mantra -- Handle the client's case from beginning to end the way you would want it handled if you were the client.

I was looking at 6 felonies with a strike on my record. I could have done some major time but Jeff spent his time in chambers and I was home in 7 mos. He is friendly and honest. He never hid anything from me and was forthcoming when it came to sentencing. I felt like I was talking to an old friend from day one. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Mr. Hammerschmidt is an outstanding attorney. I was charged with felony vandalism during 2009. Having never been in any type of trouble before, this was a very emotional and stressful time during my life. Mr. Hammerschmidt helped me through this difficult process.{newline} {newline}I was clearly being unfairly targeted by the DA’s office and local Police Department, and Mr. Hammerschmidt continuously fought the charges in court. Mr. Hammerschmidt also successfully filed a Motion To Compel Production of Di

When you were accused the way they accused me, you will be out of luck even of you were totally innocent or clean...I was very lucky to have found Jeff Hammerschmidt. Jeff was able to wipe out the four felony counts brought against me...FOUR FELONY COUNTS to a full dismissal at the end. I would have had lost my life and everything without Jeff and no one on the earth would never know the truth...with Jeff, I have got my job and my life back...I wholeheartedly recommend Jeff to anyone...
