Hammond Law Firm PLLC
I was very pleased with the services Mr. Hammond provided. Not only did the process go quickly, but it went smoothly, and my stress level was very minimal. Mr. Hammond was very flexible with my hectic schedule and met with me outside of general business hours, at my convenience. He was very thorough and made sure to walk me through every step of the way, in terms that were understandable to me. He made feel at ease throughout the entire process. He also made me feel like a human being, and showed sympathy towards my situation. The process went very quickly, and I felt comfortable the entire time. He was easy to contact, and always called back promptly when he was not immediately available. Prices were fair with the great services that were provided. I highly recommend him, and would use his services again if needed. Thank you Mr. Hammond for all your help!

David Toy handles mostly court appointed cases , however , I retained him to defend me on a probation violation after having previously hired a very expensive and prominent attorney in the area. Mr. Toy was very professional and worked hard to get the best outcome on my case . Livingston County is a tough arena for any criminal charge , especially facing Suzanne Geddis ( up for re-election 2016) . I learned that spending thousands of dollars on an attorney makes no difference . I would recommend David Toy to anyone with the unfortunate experience of dealing with legal troubles . He charges a fair price and will devote himself to your case .

Three members of my family, including myself, have had the pleasure of being represented by David Prine, on MANY different occasions. He is extremely intelligent, caring, professional, dependable, and very funny. He always returns phone calls. His knowledge of the law is amazing! He is patient and answers every question I have - no matter how small or "silly". I would pay him, instead of a court appointed lawyer (which I do), any day! I absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a kind and understanding, but aggressive lawyer. David Prine is our go-to guy!

Passeri Bridget
I can't say enough about Bridget. She performed well for me and commanded the respect of the opposing attorney as well as the Judge. I was advised by a friend that I should get a consultation from her, which was free of charge. She has an outstanding reputation in the community and that, combined with her confidence and respect in the community, is why I retained her for my divorce. I'm very pleased that I chose Mrs. Passeri as my attorney.

I hired Mr. Fiani because of his reviews on the Internet. The reviews tell everything. My results were far better than I EVER expected because of Mr. Fiani's excellent preparation, legal knowledge, years of experience and his great reputation in the legal community. Jules N. Fiani did an outstanding job and I highly recommend him as a criminal attorney or for any legal matter! BEST Attorney in Livingston County - BEST Attorney in Michigan!!!

Dave Prine is great! He is a caring attorney that really listens and knows what is best - especially when it comes to children! He has an ability to quickly counter the other parties stance. He has done great things for myself and my children. I would, and have, referred my family and friends to him!

Passeri Bridget
BEST divorce attorney in the County! Tough and fair. She represented me with professionalism and vigor. I'm not sure about the other reviews. The Judge and other attorney treated her with complete respect. She obviously has a well-deserved great reputation. I highly recommend her.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
