Tom is one of the best go getters alive... He knows what's going on with you, as a person and as the opposition. He will fight tooth and nail for YOU! He is very educated when it comes to protecting his clients.

I will recommend McCutcheon & Hamner to any and everyone who needs legal representation. They kept me informed and updated. Joel and his staff did an excellent job at being honest, professional and not sugar-coating any aspect of my case. They truly make you feel like family. Their tag line is spot on...They don’t want to be everyone’s lawyer. They want to be your lawyer.

Audrey D.

The law office provided a great service to Veterans and their wives in assisting with obtaining simple wills this was a program that I believe was started on or around Veteran's Day. They were very helpful and kind and my husband who served our country proudly was blessed by the gift.
Kristen B.
Due to a recent life altering and unfortunate car accident my wife was seriously injured. We were very unsure of who to turn to in seeking legal guidance and we weren't familiar with the process of filing medical claims with the car insurance companies involved. McCutcheon & Hamner were very supportive, professional and attentive to all of my wife's legal needs throughout the process and thanks to their outstanding service we were compensated substantially and were very happy with the outcome. We would highly recommend McCutcheon & Hamner to anyone that has been injured in an auto accident. We can't thank them enough for helping ease the pain of the event. Our family is extremely grateful.

Elaine T.
Thank you, Mr. Joel Hamner, for being a great lawyer and for you, and your office staff, handling absolutely everything! I highly recommend you to anyone that has a legal need! 5 stars!!!!!
Ryan B.
I would certainly recommend Joel Hamner. After fighting the insurance company by myself for more than a year, I turned my case over to Mr. Hamner. He handled all the negotiations and paperwork from that day forward, which relieved a lot of stress, and allowed me to focus on getting well. Ultimately, he negotiated a settlement considerably larger than anything I was offered at any point while trying to handle it myself. I just wish I hadn’t wasted so much time and energy before contacting his firm. I would advise anyone to turn over any significant claim to their lawyer, and if you don’t have one, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Mr. Hamner.

James B.
Great people
john C.
My wife was hit head on by a driver under the influence. She sustained a broken back along with other injuries. I called Mr. Hamner from the emergency room and set up an appointment because I knew that we faced an uphill battle, not only from her injuries, but with insurance companies. From the initial consultation until last Monday when she received the final settlement we were treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. One might say we were treated as part of their family. We highly recommend that if you are in an accident there is only one firm to call and that is McCutcheon & Hamner.

Obviously I am biased, but that said I think too many lawyers see what they do as a business.It is a profession and my father, who some of you knew always taught me this- PUT THE CLIENT FIRST.We know all of our clients personally and it is an honor and a privilege to be trusted with a clients case.
La'Wana R.
The very first day when I met Mr.Hamner and Miss Donna I just feel a warm family vibe from them they never left me where I wasn't feeling comfortable about my situation and I knew I was in the best hands Leah & His Mr Hamner's personal assistants went over and beyond.

Jesse L.
Joel Hamner was my lawyer, All of his staff members were amazing. My case received it’s first check for settlement in under 12 months. They handled everything professionally, Kept amazing record keeping about my doctor visits, Notes and surgery information, They crafted a very well detailed demand letter and most importantly they dealt with me being super annoying and checking in almost everyday about the progress with the case. They’ve always been friendly and nice as well as knowledgeable and we’re always willing to explain in great detail of the things I didn’t understand.Thanks y’all- Jesse
Erica P.
Tom McCutcheon always helps my family with all our legal needs. He is thorough with wills, POA’s, and everything you could need. His assistant, Jennifer, is the most polite and helpful person! She is super quick and responsive when you need something! They make the perfect team!
Donna S.
Not knowing what to do or who to turn to after being injured in an automobile accident, Joel Hamner was recommended to me. I put all my trust and faith in Joel Hamner's confident hands. Without coming to trial, Mr. Hamner represented me to the insurance company and I was awarded a substantial amount of funds to cover my inconveniences. If ever needed in the future, I would use and recommend McCutheon and Hamner. Compassionate, honest, timely, considerate, knowledgeable and a history of positve outcomes are only a few words to describe my experience. Thank you for taking my case.
Jason P.
