Richard A. Hamar was born to represent persons accused of crimes. His distrust of those in power and their abuse of power coupled with his deep seated compassion for mankind and our lack of perfection make him the zealous defender of those accused. Richard Hamar has a documented history of an extraordinary rate of dismissals and jury acquittals in complex cases that at first seem to be impossible to win. His philosophy is low volume, intense preparation, the use of his oral and published writing skills and most importantly treating clients like family. Richard Hamar has often lectured to other lawyers including the most august organization of criminal lawyers in the United States. Although he has a vast 35 year experience of work world-wide criminal cases, he remains youthful and full of boundless energy due to almost daily yoga, surfing, joy of life and a united and supportive family.
