  • Frederic Nicola and Jessica Dorman provided prompt and effective service.
    Frederic Nicola and Jessica Dorman provided prompt and effective service in getting discover-able evidence related to slander and a security clearance for the DoD. Their actions helped enable a Member of the House of Representative (Congress) to challenge case involving Whistle-Blowing and Reprisal related to reporting various Prohibited Personnel Practices (PPP) as outlined by the Office of Special Counsel. Ultimately, the DODCAF with oversight from Congress eradicated the slander and gave a directive to a DoD Agency to eradicate the slander and to reverse and restore any actions against an individuals security access and clearance. Ultimately, there was no need for a response to the DODCAF and the situation was rectified due to the plethora of evidence collected in general.

  • Lance gave me a great attorney to represent me and he was patient to listen to my story.
    I want to thank my attorney Charlene Wong for fighting for me like she stated she would. She came with the best game plan, she has a strong argument, great delivery when she speaks, she made a lot of key points to the judge and very persistent. For once I got an attorney that cared about her client and fought for me. I would suggest people to hire this woman because she is professional, friendly, thoughtful, and can stand her ground. Good job and thanks for representing me.

  • I would definitely recommend Taylor as your family attorney.
    Taylor was professional and right on the ball — she listens and hears clients while maintaining a persona of not over promising anything yet being as positive as she could under the circumstances. I was pleased with her work which is rare in my experience with attorneys. I would definitely recommend her..

    My attorney is simply incredible in the courtroom. He is an exceptional attorney and I am very happy with the results of my child custody and child support matter. He genuinely understood the importance of me having equal time with my son. I am forever grateful to him for that. I will never forget how hard he fought for me in court.

  • Positive Attitude = Positive Results
    My associate did a fantastic job representing me in my national security clearance case. After we presented the facts, timeline and information pertinent to our case, my attorney established a positive expectation environment during our initial consultation. Not only did he present our story in a cohesive manner, he led us to a positive decision by the arbitration court. HIs communication and guidance along the way was outstanding. Ultimately, he helped secure a positive outcome to a potentially negative life changing event. Well done!

  • "Amazing Results!"
    I worked with Eli Hammond and Kathleen Choe on my case and couldn't have asked for better results. They filed two motions on my case and had a hearing on both and won motions. I went from having a "permanent" order of protection to getting the entire case dismissed and may even be awarded attorney's fees. Eli was very prepared for the hearing and presented extremely well in court in front of the judge. I'm happy this case is over and had an attorney that I could truly rely on to get fair and just results!

  • "Wonderful People"
    I was served with papers to appear in court. I had a little more than one week notice to find an attorney to represent me in a very important civil dispute. I told a friend of mine Cathy about my need for a good attorney. She recommended Claery & Hammond. The following day I spoke with Eli Hammond on the telephone. I was very impressed with him. I also had an attorney who represented me successfully on a case with the same opposing party. I needed to decide between Ely and the previous attorney. My previous attorney could have handled this case, however I decided to take a chance on Eli. My calculation was that Eli would be the better attorney, a person very familiar with the law and who pay attention to the details and represent me better. The following day, I banked my money as well as a significant portion of my future, (depending on the outcome of the case), on the Claery & Hammond law firm. I am very very pleased in my decision to use this law firm. The attorneys handling my case, Charlene Wong and Eli Hammond, have been very attentive to all the details of the case. They have stayed on top of everything. They represent me according to the highest of personal and professional standards. They have been compent in every way. At the time of this review the case is not yet complete. It may not be a simple case of win or lose. Sometimes, compromises need to be made. However, with Charlene and Eli representing me, I think I have a good chance of prevailing on all points. Thanks so much

  • I cannot thank you enough. I give five stars. Great!!!
    What did I like about it? I liked the personal attention that I got from everyone at Cleary and Hammond. My divorce situation was very difficult to deal with. Believe me, I know everyone's' family law situations are tough for them but mine was especially brutal because of the custody issues. Everybody at this firm took the time to make sure I got through it and I am happy with the child custody arrangement I ended up with. I cannot thank you enough. I give five stars. Great!!!

  • I wouldn't have made it through the Pension Plan fight if it hadn't been for Eli Hammond
    I wouldn't have made it through the Pension Plan fight if it hadn't been for Eli Hammond. He is truly a warrior of a lawyer.In spite of my financial condition or lack there of everyone treated me with respect and patience. It was very hard on all of us because I am disabled and live 1000 miles away, but all worked out. I have my check in hand and am delighted.I believe Eli is very educated on many issues. He had no problem with a 35 year old divorce decree that was silent regarding assets. Yes, indeed, a Warrior Lawyer. He was also very professional and gracious.

  • Without hesitation, I recommend this firm!
    Highly recommended!! I don't usually write reviews, but Mr. Lance Claery's commitment/work on my complicated legal case was outstanding. I cannot thank Mr. Claery and his staff enough for the outstanding job they did on my legal case. You and your staff made the best of a very difficult time in my life. From my initial phone call with Mr. Claery, I got the feeling that he was interested, focused, and committed to my case. Once I started with his firm, I no longer felt scared and confused by my rights and how to negotiate the legal world. Anytime I had an issue, concern, or question with my case, Mr. Claery or his associate attorneys were available to answer my question or address my concerns. Over the next twelve months it took to get to trial, we faced many challenges. I say we faced because I felt like the entire staff was there with me every step of the way. What could have been a continued disaster ended with the outcome that I desired. Throughout my case, Mr. Claery was always meticulously prepared. He handled my negotiations and the detailed documentation preparation in a manner consistent with the highest business standards. As we went to court he provided a clear agenda of my case, while the other party was trying to confuse and prolong the case, Mr. Claery pushed forward through this nightmare. In the end, I was ecstatic with the court's decision. I interacted with both Mr. Claery and Mr. Hammond and would like to thank both of them. I have found both to be very knowledgeable, competent, dedicated, hardworking, trustworthy, professional and kind. They took a weight off my shoulders and handled everything from start to finish. I will be forever grateful. While I hope that I do not need their services again, if I have any issues I will not hesitate to go back to this law firm for future services. I would also like to mention that the support staff also embodies the same level of excellence as Mr. Claery and Mr. Hammond.

  • I am truly grateful for the guidance, support and peace of mind that I gained from working with Claery & Hammond, LLP
    There is no easy way to end a marriage, and as divorces go, mine was fairly amicable. What I needed was some guidance and legal advice to facilitate the processing of the formal paperwork. I had retained a different attorney through family recommendations prior to retaining Claery & Hammond, LLP. I could not get a hold of him (almost ever) and felt that I was not a priority for him as a client. At that point, I decided that I needed to consult with an attorney who only practiced family law. I am so glad that I retained the services of Claery & Hammond, LLP to assist me. It was really important to me to have someone to ensure that I was protected and to tie up loose ends. I never felt that I was a burden on my attorney or that I was not a priority to the firm. I had access to my attorney and all of my emails and calls were returned promptly. Time was really important to me as I did not want to have a long and drawn out procedure (I am of the belief that you just need to rip the band-aid off). I was able to finalize my paperwork in a timely manner and move forward with my life. I am truly grateful for the guidance, support, and peace of mind that I gained from working with Claery & Hammond, LLP. I would recommend their services to anyone who is in need of a good family law firm.

  • Thank you once again for everything.
    I can't thank you enough for all your hard work in making this happen and for all the patience. I can't tell you how much I greatly appreciate it. The day I got that letter was by far the best news I've had in an extremely long time. Well Nicole, it was a pleasure and if I ever have anyone ask me for a recommendation for a divorce lawyer, I will send them your way.
