    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. Read less
