I have been working with Mr. Hamblin for almost one and a half years and consider him to be one of the finest Lawyers I have ever done business with. Mr. Hamblin’s understanding of Missouri law is to say the least encyclopedic. His areas of expertise are broad and far-reaching. While working with Mr. Hamblin I found that he has an innate gift for what he does. His availability, presence in the courtroom, and demeanor with prosecutors, plaintiffs, witnesses and defendants are unparalleled in Missouri’s capital. Jefferson City is the epicenter of all legislation in this great state of Missouri, and Mr. Hamblin is in my opinion the best lawyer in town. His perseverance, tenacity and professionalism set him apart from his colleagues. If you are in dire circumstances and need a tough, talented and expert lawyer, then Mr. Hamblin is your man. He has an enormous amount of experience, the memory of an Elephant, and an extraordinary ability of accomplishing his client’s needs. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Hamblin to anyone in search of a kind, sympathetic and loyal partner in any pressing legal matter.
Scott was efficient and knew his stuff. Very thorough and committed to our family. He had worked on two different cases for us and did an excellent job. No regrets!
I called Mr. Hamblin to represent my family member. When we went in to have a meeting, Mr. Hamblin was very honest said he felt that he could represent him and help with the matter that he had been charged with. I was so glad that I had contacted Mr. Hamblin on this matter, because he did just what he said that he would do. He did so in a timely and professional matter, and the expense was very minimal considering that this could have been a life-changing matter. I want to say a big Thank you Mr. Hamblin for your services. I hope that I never have to contact you for anything like this again, but if I ever do I can assure that I will call Mr. Hamblin once again. I think you are a Great Attorney and Thanks once again for your services.
Very upfront and honest about the potential outcomes of my case.
Scott Hamblin represented my son in a high-profile case. Scott was highly professional throughout the course of the proceedings, prompt and thorough in answering all of our questions and, most importantly, was very prepared when he represented my son in the courtroom, which resulted in a very favorable outcome. Our family cannot thank Scott enough for a job well done and 5 stars is really not enough. He truly did a phenomenal job. I would have no reservations in recommending Scott should you ever need a criminal defense attorney.
Mr. Hamblin succeeded in winning a child custody modification case for me that most lawyers I spoke with wouldn’t even take on. Many told me that modifying a child custody agreement was nearly impossible. Due to the changes at my children’s Father’s house and the toll it was taking on their mental health, my children needed this modification and were begging for a change. Mr. Hamblin helped give my children a voice and get what they call “A Christmas Miracle” when we won full custody of them a few days before Christmas. I would recommend his counsel to anyone needing a good attorney. I felt like he worked really well with me, listened to me, and cared enough about my case to really fight for my children and their wishes. We are very grateful.
I am so grateful that I hired him, he gave me hope to overcome my fear and anxiety. Now my case was dismissed because of his hard work. Thank you so much Attorney Scott. May God bless you, and keep continuing to save people’s lives!!!
There are no words to express how grateful I am for the opportunity to be represented by Mr. Hamblin. I have enjoyed working with him and his assistant, especially through some of the most challenging moments of my life. Selecting someone to handle your case can be a very difficult decision to make, but even from the moment I arrived at the office for my consultation, I knew I had found the right attorney. Thank you so much for a positive outcome, Mr. Hamblin!
I got stuck between a rock and a hard place in my situation as was in need of help. Scott was appointed to be via public defender for a federal case and I could not have wished for a better lawyer and overall individual. He would show up for me while I was incarcerated on the weekend when he had time and would also work around my work schedule to meet while I was not incarcerated. He extensively researched my case and talked to me like a human rather than another client. He’s very kind and will tell you the situation whether it’s good or bad and though it may not be easy to hear, it’s what needs to be said. He absolutely went above and beyond my expectation for an attorney and overall a great human being. I would like to thank him for helping me get probation in a rough situation. He listened to all I had to say and at times took my mind off the situation by just having normal human conversation rather than a strict client/attorney conversation. I really couldn’t have asked for better and would highly recommend him to anyone who ends up in need of a great attorney.
Scott is a very compassionate but honest man. I have known Scott for 10+ years. I met him while fostering children with Cole County Children’s Division. When he became the adoption lawyer for Cole County Children’s Division in 2007 my husband and I were one of the first to use him to become adoptive parents to our then two-year-old foster son. Our son just turned 13 years old this year.
In 2013, he represented my husband and me to get guardianship for our foster daughter. We are beyond blessed to have such a great guy like Scott to represent us.
I recommend him 100%. I can’t thank him enough for helping make our family complete. We are forever grateful.
Scott is a great lawyer, will do what he says! He will work his tail off for you. It was a long 2 year divorce, but I am so glad he was representing me. Very fair and doesn’t overcharge for his services. I can now say he is my friend, not only my attorney.
Scott did an excellent job. He was available as needed and always listened. He responded quickly to e-mails or phone calls. He didn’t just “tell me what to do.” Instead, he listened to my input and helped me make informed decisions. I always felt as though he had time for me as a client.
Scott did a great job handling our custody case. He fought for us every step of the way and got things done quickly. He even refunded over half of our retainer because he got the case handled quicker than expected. I would recommend him to anyone.
Scott and his team go above and beyond to make your most challenging times easier on you. Calls and emails are always answered promptly and they truly go out of their way to help their clients. If you are searching for the BEST of the BEST, you’ve found it with Scott and his team!
I had received some felony charges and Scott fought it every single step of the way (and then some) to a jury trial and did so well, I was found not guilty on all counts! It wouldn’t have been possible without him. I’ve had several lawyers in the past and he is no comparison to any of them. He is very knowledgeable in every aspect of laws and the justice system. He is very articulate and explains things very well. You won’t regret hiring him! Thank you!
Scott Hamblin is a great lawyer. He has assisted me in my divorce and custody issues over the past three years. He is easy to work with and has always kept me informed/involved in my cases, as they progress.
Mr. Hamblin is an excellent attorney. He is very friendly and works hard to do what is in the best interest of his clients. I have had only positive experiences when hiring Mr. Hamblin for my legal needs. He responses quickly any time I need assistance and he keeps you very well informed on the progress of your case. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Hamblin.
He did a great job on my federal case
Very intelligent and helpful
Exceptional to work with, easy to talk to and extremely efficient.
We have used Scott on two major issues now and have walked away both times more than satisfied.
If someone has a significant legal issue pressing, Scott Hamblin, without question is who they need representing them.
If I ever again need any legal advice, I will ask Scott Hamblin every time.
Scott was my divorce/child custody attorney. I was extremely happy with him. He cares about his clients and always called in person. He made the almost impossible come true for me! That’s how great of an attorney he is. Thank you Scott! Great job!
Scott has won a case for me that seemed hopeless.
He went above and beyond to get me all the help legally available in each situation, and he did so with a kind and calming demeanor. His efforts also included being logical about the use of my funds in these matters. I have never before met a lawyer who gives refunds if he does not use the entire retainer. He was fair, kind, realistic, and tolerant of my emotional state during my legal struggles. He always looked at what was in my family’s best interest. I have never before encountered a lawyer who cares so much about his clients well being while still maintaining perfect professionalism. His honesty, integrity and service before self mentality make him an absolute must for anyone going through a difficult family law matter.
Scott Hamblin was originally suggested to me for adoption, but I was so impressed I also used his services for future adoptions, name changes and all family law matters since meeting him.
Scott handled two cases for me and was great in both of them. Scott has excellent bedside manner and answered all my questions to where I understood them. Scott is a class A attorney and I would recommend him to anyone.
Scott Hamblin is a no-nonsense, very knowledgeable attorney who is dedicated to helping his clients understand their options. Scott will go the extra mile for his clients to make sure they are taken care of, and informed. He is our family’s “go-to” attorney and we highly recommend him.
We were forced to hire an attorney when my childrens’ absentee father decided that he suddenly wanted to file for joint custody. After my consultation we decided Mr. Hamblin was who we needed. He was straightforward about all of the possible outcomes, and what we could and couldn’t do. He knows the law very well, and did not ever lead me to believe that he could promise a specific outcome, but that he would do his very best to represent us.
He was calm, caring, and confident all throughout our trial, which can be very intense. Even after the trial when he had to deal with an appeal he did his best for us.
He or his secretary always answered my emails very promptly and even spent time on the phone with me explaining the process and answering all my questions.I’m so thankful that we chose to use Mr. Hamblin to represent us and our children. Continuing to have full custody of my children is an answer to prayer, and God used this man to walk us through a very difficult time.
Scott represented me on a matter that was small, but very important to me. Scott was professional, honest and informative every step of the way. Even though my case was a small one, I never felt any less than his most important client whenever we met or had court appearances. I am absolutely certain that I could not have achieved a better outcome unrepresented or with any other attorney.
Scott was a great lawyer and turned into a friend. He does everything he says he will do, and he works his tail off for you. He would call me at night, and on weekends, not a lot of lawyers will do that. My divorce took over 2 years, I am so glad I switched lawyers and went to him. Scott will take care of you!
Did a wonderful job at hearing me out and explaining the processes to me. Very professional and would highly recommend – Anonymous
Scott is a great attorney to have on your side. He has helped my family more than I could of ever expected. Thanks again. I would recommend Scott to anyone!
In my case, Mr. Hamblin’s representation was excellent. His knowledge of the law as it related to me and his experience were both a source of confidence and comfort to me. I will never be able to thank him enough.
Scott is very knowledgeable and very helpful. He was there for us the entire time and always making sure we knew what was going on. We are so thankful for Scott. We would recommend Scott to anyone!!!
Mr. Hamblin and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and professional in planning and executing the strategy for a favorable outcome of my divorce. He worked around my busy schedule, even meeting with me on a Sunday on one occasion. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an excellent divorce attorney.
Scott has been extremely professional in working my divorce case. He has answered all my questions (and I had a lot of them). He has gone “above and beyond” to make me feel comfortable having him represent me and my case. I was able to met with Scott after normal work hours on several occasions to accommodate my work schedule. I even met with him on Super Bowl Sunday so that we were prepared for trial. His years of experience are very evident by the way he handled all the court documents as well as in the court room. I am very satisfied with my decision to chose Scott as my lawyer in my divorce case.
Mr. Hamblin was a step ahead of my every concern. A divorce can be so scary but to be honest I didn’t find myself worrying over the process. He didn’t miss a detail and gave me so much confidence in his advice. He went above and beyond my expectations. His understanding made me feel like a person rather than just a client. He is one of a kind!
Scott helped us with all 3 of our adoptions and it was amazingly painless, they did all the foot work for us and handled everything very professionally! We are so pleased and our family is complete!
Scott Hamblin was amazing. He was very informative through the whole process. Very easy to communicate with, listens to what his clients desires really are. He walked us through every step of the whole three year battle. Got us what we nor anybody else thought was possible. He knows the law and knows what will work in court and won’t. He explained everything to us in a language we could understand, not just legal terms. If we ever have any legal issues he will be the one we call. He will always be in our hearts, and we will forever be indebted to him in our minds. Because of him we beat the impossible. Thank you Scott!!!!!!!
Explained the process and didn’t waste time on my case. He did not overcharge. He charged me for the amount of work he did, and did not charge me for empty time spent on case.
Scott Hamblin is the best lawyer any money could buy. He has gotten my boyfriend out of going to prison for a probation violation for a DWI. He has had a couple offenses on him in the past and Scott saved him from a few years down and was able to get him in a program where he was home and able to work. Now we are going through a nasty legal custody battle and Scott has been there ONCE AGAIN every step of the way to fill us in on every move being made and him and his secretary are very quick to respond. I will never go anywhere else with any legal issues. Scott is the one and only lawyer I’d recommend for any issue.
Scott finalized an adoption and guardianship for us in 2016. He went above and beyond and made sure during and after it was done that we had the documents we needed. He also got are new birth certificates very timely.
My husband and I hired Mr. Hamblin for a criminal matter that happen to me by accident I had some issues that happen and I have never been in any trouble. However, I did some research on criminal defense attorneys and Mr. Hamblin’s name appeared. I did some research on him and found that he used to be a prosecuting attorney. Anyway making a long story short we hired Mr. Hamblin for my defense lawyer. He did not judge me for what had happened. He provided me with straight forward answers and he knew the law very well I think. If I ever need a lawyer again I can honestly say that I would hire him again. I just want Mr. Hamblin to know that I appreciate everything you did for me. You’re the best.
In 2005, I looked for a lawyer that would help in a criminal case. I found Scott Hamblin. He helped with this matter and was always professional, respectful, and straight to the point. He was always prepared for court and on time. Again in 2012, I needed help for a child custody matter and I reached out to Scott Hamblin and he assisted me in this matter without question. Even after the 7 year time gap he was willing to help and again was professional and respectful. And again 3 years later I was looking for help in a child custody matter, and I thought of no one else I wanted to use. So I called Scott Hamblin and ask again for his help. He did an amazing job. Thank you Scott
I have used Scott Hamblin’s services acting as power of attorney for my son who is a soldier deployed. Thanks to Mr. Hamblin, he ensured that we received visits with our granddaughter, who was only two weeks old when our son left to fight for our country. These visits allowed our son to communicate via skype with his daughter being able to hear her coos, watch her grow, see her walk for the first time and the joy of seeing her face light up when she sees his face and hears his voice. The first year of his daughters life, that otherwise would have been missed and as we all know, can never be replaced. Our soldiers deserve to be a part of their children’s lives and some people like to think otherwise, but not Mr. Hamblin – Thank you so much Scott! We will be forever grateful to Mr. Hamblin and highly recommend his services.
I used Scott Hamblin’s services for a modification in custody. Mr. Hamblin was very pleasant to talk with and very informative. He was very up front with what it would cost and what we could expect. The most impressive part of our case was that Mr. Hamblin got right on it. Our issue was resolved in a matter of a few days, even with the judge’s signature. Very impressive! Mr. Hamblin is very personable, kind, knowledgeable, and has a sense of humor. I would highly recommend Scott Hamblin as an attorney.
Scott helped me through a very tough time, being charged with a crime I had no knowledge of was very frightening. Scott calmly walked me through the process with professional authority. His knowledge of the court system and its process proved to be a great asset. Scott has been my lawyer for multiple court issues, Criminal, Divorce, Child Custody. He has always be aware of when to move forward and when to slow down to meet my changing court needs. I would recommend Scott for anyone in need of a lawyer.
Scott is always professional but always keeps you at ease. Scott is one of a few attorneys that know all of the adoption laws, and that makes us feel so relaxed and self assured that he will represent us and get the job done without any mistakes. When it comes time for the adoption date I am usually full of anxiety and stress but after talking to Scott I always feel calm and a little stress free.
Scott is a very reputable attorney. He truly has compassion and great knowledge for the clients he serves. Scott was our attorney for our adoptions. We are very thankful for him!
Attorney Scott Hamblin works tirelessly on his cases and gets to know each and every one of his clients personally. When necessary he sacrifices his personal time to make sure he is always prepared to defend you no matter the circumstances. Mr. Hamblin fights for the life, liberty and most importantly, justice of the everyday person and citizen of this great nation.
Mr. Hamblin is able to accomplish this not just because of his conviction for upholding justice for the common person but because of his expertise and unequivocal knowledge of the law and court procedures. He has an uncanny, unique ability to simplify complex issues and make them understandable to other attorneys, judges and juries.
He has spent a good portion of his life here in Jefferson City as a former all-star prosecutor and has fostered a collegial rapport with his associates working in the courts in Missouri. He has earned their respect and listen closely when he engages a topic. A good attorney when someone is in a very bad position is a necessity that everyone has a right too. When you employ Mr. Hamblin you don’t get a good attorney you get a GREAT attorney that will fight for you till your case is resolved.
Mr. Hamblin has been my lawyer for 12 years now. He was my lawyer for my divorce, which was not an easy “we agree on everything” divorce, it was a very hard and ugly divorce, I was very pleased with the outcome and he was able to get me what I was asking for. I have used him several times since then, at least 5 other cases, and have had nothing but good experiences, he is very knowledgeable and keeps me informed of my case constantly. There was never a time I needed to get a hold of him and he did not return my call in a timely manner. I’ve trusted him with very important and meaningful information about my life that he needed to know for certain cases and he has never misused that information.
Scott is such an easy person to talk with and can easily explain legal stuff in a layman’s terms. Scott is dedicated, trustworthy and listens to everything in a case. Above all of this, Scott has a positive attitude and puts the customer first.
The title says it all on this review. I have used Scott Hamblin on a number of legal issues over the course of many years. He never fails to perform beyond expectations. Scott Hamblin is widely known for being prepared and thorough. This was true in every instance that I needed his services including most recently in 2015. He is not a 9-5 type and it shows in his communications. I was always informed on every action he was taking on my behalf and this communication was personal and not submitted exclusively by letter or email. He would speak to me after hours which is a real boost for a person involved in legal matters. Scott Hamblin is personable and direct. He has great knowledge of the law and puts his clients first in the legal equation. I find him to be of the highest ethical standards who advocates with discipline. A couple of observations I have made about Scott separates him from most attorneys. The first is that he is not egocentric. He is professional but presents himself as a person who listens and has humility. Secondly he advocates efficiently and is not a wasteful type. He understands the value of money and tries with great effort to stay within budgetary constraints. You know every step of the way how the case is going and how your money is being spent. No secrets and no curve balls from Scott. He practices law with great passion. I am very selective about seeking legal assistance. I want the best attorney I can get for the job at hand. In every instance I have needed an attorney over the last decade he is the man. I have only used two attorneys in mid Missouri in the last 15 years. The other attorney always has recommended Scott for the very reasons that I have cited here. Scott Hamblin comes prepared. He is the only attorney I will use! If anyone wishes to challenge the validity of my statements or the sincerity of this review please contact me via my email and I will open up my legal files to show you how good he is at practicing the law. Is this a bit over the top? I think not because there are a lot of Attorneys out there practicing law for the wrong reasons. When you find a diamond in a pile of stones you don’t hide it, you share. I recommend Scott Hamblin to everyone who needs a great attorney. I have done so in the past and will continue to do so in the future. He is one of the best attorneys in the state of Missouri.
A Jefferson City man faced DUI charges following a field sobriety test. Charges against the defendant were dropped after Scott successfully maintained the client’s claims that the test results were inaccurate. While the client initially appeared to be in a difficult situation, Scott was able to push investigators to determine the sobriety test results as invalid, so the charges were dismissed.
A mother was seeking sole custody of her children following a divorce. The father refused to cooperate, leaving the client in a difficult situation as she felt as though her children didn’t have a voice. Scott recognized her need for an advocate and carefully listened to the children’s wishes, which conclusively helped the client achieve sole custody of her children and protected their best interests.
A client from Fulton was accused of drug possession as a result of a home search. While drug charges may potentially be filed as a Class C felony involving severe consequences, Scott was able to help the client receive a reduced sentence. Ultimately, the client faced significantly smaller penalties compared to the initial charges.
Scott assisted a defendant in a particularly challenging divorce case in which the other spouse was not cooperating. Scott was able to help the client avoid court through an aggressive legal approach to resolve all outstanding disagreements while maintaining the client’s long-term needs.
One client sought legal assistance after an altercation with another individual in Jefferson City. The client was arrested on assault charges despite allegedly not starting the fight. Since an arrest can lead to life-altering penalties such as being terminated from employment and serving jail time, Scott was able to build a solid legal defense in the client’s favor and argued in favor of the client’s innocence.
A grandparent sought visitation rights to his grandchild after the parent tried to block him. Scott takes grandparents’ rights very seriously, and so he devised a strategy to help the grandparent set a visitation schedule. Scott developed a strategy to show that the child’s best interests were fulfilled through the grandparent’s ability to visit the child, helping push the case towards a resolution in the client’s favor.
Scott assisted a client who was injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence. The defendant claimed that the opposing party using their phone at the time of the crash, and Scott emphasized this claim to show that the other driver was at fault for the client’s injuries. The case concluded with the client receiving the necessary compensation for medical bills following a long hospital stay due to injuries.
