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.
