Satisfied Client Stories

Testimonial 4

When my marriage ended I was in a state of grief and confusion. Betty’s calm advice gave me strength and the end result was better than I would have expected


Family court matters are challenging no matter the circumstances. Finding the right legal counsel goes a long way in helping people through these challenging times. Robert Hammond was compassionate to my case but realistic in establishing expectations on the possible outcome of the case. He was a strong advocate for the children involved. Robert Hammond came to my case late and with his seasoned experience and comprehension of family law he was able to turn my case around effortlessly. He tirelessly pushed for the best possible outcome and every action made was in the best interests of the children. With his guidance and assistance we were able to come to a settlement agreement without having to go through a trial. I would recommend Robert Hammond to be a representative for anyone who is trying to navigate through the family court system.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Rob, and the Hammond/Osborne firm for the considerate and professional treatment I received while attending to my brothers affairs. As I told Rob during our discussions, my brother was adamant that all business concerning his affairs was to be conducted through your firm and I totally understand why. It is an arduous task at best to look after someone’s affairs and having someone to clarify the issues and sort through the pitfalls for you is invaluable.
