“Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of
giving the government the power to control men’s minds.”
-Thurgood Marshall, American Jurist and Lawyer, 1908-1993
Traci walked me through every step of the case, and was extremely knowledgeable. She made sure we had all the necessary documents, and dealt directly with the insurance companies, doctors, and opposing counsel. She is tough as nails, and doesn’t back down, while also being very supportive and protective. She clearly knows the ins and outs of the law, and isn’t afraid to prove it. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
All I can say is Ms. Hinden is FABULOUS! She recently handled a case for me, and I couldn’t have found better representation. Ms. Hinden is a “lawyer’s lawyer” who truly knows her stuff. Opposing counsel was even impressed by her knowledge and understanding of the law (as it brought to light their lack of knowledge on multiple subjects). Aside from being tactful when opposing counsel was being difficult and less than cooperative, she treated me with the professionalism and courtesy that I find is lacking throughout the legal community. Ms. Hinden kept me up to date with every development with my case, and even informed me when there were no new developments (because I was anxious). She is fully aware of the tricks and schemes that employers play in an effort to avoid paying you for their legal violations. She had her boxing gloves on the whole time, and was ready for every twisted maneuver the opposing side presented. I am ecstatic at the settlement I received, and it was more than I was hoping for.
If you want someone who will fight for you, she is the person to call. I will continue to recommend her to anyone who is treated unfairly by their employer. Ms. Hinden is a top notch! I feel sorry for anyone who is on the opposing side. They definitely will not be able to handle her.
Before getting into my review in detail, it is imperative to note that I work with attorneys on a daily basis. I’ve been working with attorneys for over 17 years in the medical-legal and civil litigation arena. If you’re looking for an attorney who’s competent, compassionate, and aggressive, look no further. Traci has represented me both personally and professionally in the past and based on my experience, I would recommend her services without any hesitation. Traci has now become one of our key business attorneys and consultants on business, employee, and labor issues. She communicates clearly and more importantly returns correspondence either through email or phone call promptly. My staff and I found her attention to detail and her ability to communicate complex issues so that they are understandable by the lay person to be one of her best attributes. Most importantly, I found her office billing practices to be reasonable and accurate. She sets realistic expectations and delivers. I would recommend The Law Offices of Traci M. Hinden to any of my friends and family members.
Traci is a phenomenal lawyer. She represented me when I was involved in an automobile accident. She came highly recommended and I am happy I decided to give her office a call. Traci and her staff are very professional, returned all of my calls, and always treated me with respect. She understood my pain and worked non-stop on my case in order to get me a great settlement. I am so pleased with her and her services that I have recommended her to several of my family members and friends.
When I came to her I was broken and felt as is there was nowhere to turn literally. I’ve not seen anybody work so hard in my life. She won my case and I got my self esteem back and was able to move forward with my life … Traci Hinden is a modern day Wonder Woman.
Client oriented. To say that they had my best interest at heart, in addition to remaining fair, honest and supportive, is an understatement. Traci Hinden and Associates provided high quality, detailed -oriented and client -centered services. They will advocate and fight for and with you with the same vigor if not more than you would advocate for yourself. Not to mention they have an expert knowledge of the law. Don’t be afraid as she is quite straightforward with evidence-based information and will go to bat with you if you’re ready.
The Law Offices of Traci Hinden is the best in their field. Ms. Hinden represented myself and 8 co workers in a Wrongful Termination Case. She showed compassion and understanding to 9 people who felt down due to lose of employment. Ms. Hinden not only helped boost our self esteem…She also won our case. It was so comforting having someone who was able to ease my stress, but at the same time aggressive enough to make the defendant sweat. I have since then referred others to Ms. Hinden. Anyone who needs a honest, aggressive, compassionate, smart and no nonsense attorney. Traci M. Hinden is the attorney for you. #TeamTraci.
