“Competent, Honest, and Sincere

“We first hired Mr. Hummer to help resolve an ongoing property dispute between our business and a neighboring institution.

Being business owners and having dealt with a number of attorneys over the years, we can’t say enough good things about our experience with Mr. Hummer.

He took the time to listen and understand our perspective, was honest in his assessment, paid close attention to important details, and never surprised us with any bills for services rendered.

After our positive experience with him in that matter, he has advised us on a host of issues. Whenever a sensitive matter has arisen where our money, career, or reputation has been tested, it’s a relief to have someone we know we can trust.

In a community where there are a number of lawyers to choose from and in a profession where reputation is everything, you can’t go wrong by retaining Mr. Hummer and the level of dedicated service he provides. We highly recommend seeking his counsel and will continue to do so for years to come.”
