Our Attorneys

At McCutcheon & Hamner, we are serious about justice from the beginning of each client relationship. Some lawyers do not go over the initial statement of how the accident happened with their client. Cases are lost or the value is impaired right then. There is no excuse for allowing an injured and unrehearsed person to be questioned by a trained insurance investigator. It is difficult to overcome a bad recorded statement

Joel and I work hard to prepare to go to trial. What we have observed is that a lot of big advertising attorneys out there may not be getting the most value for their clients because they do not take that approach. You have to be able to go to trial. Nobody wants to go trial but you’ve got to be prepared. If you can fight, you often don’t have to.

We have won large personal injury verdicts and received impressive results throughout North Alabama and hold the largest car accident verdicts in several counties.

We have successfully handled over 50,000 personal injury cases. We have recovered over 100 million dollars in settlements or verdicts for our clients. We have a track record of success and are never paid until the client recovers.

Thomas McCutcheon Partner

"At McCutcheon and Hamner, we believe every case is personal and we take the time to get to know you and your story. We represent people, and we get you the money you deserve."

Joel Hamner Partner

A native of the Killen area, Joel believes that in order to get the most money for their clients, the insurance companies had to know that this law firm would be willing to take any case to trial, large or small.


  • “We were very happy with Mr. Hamner as our lawyer. He was nice, kept us informed, and wrapped our case up in a timely manner! It was comforting to know we were in good hands considering we live out of state.”
    - S. Fortenbury
  • “As a veteran I really appreciate your deed of kindness and thank you on behalf of veterans everywhere.”
    - H. Graham
  • “I know these gentlemen personally as a client. Saying they are professional and reliable attorneys is an understatement. They have gone above and beyond to help me, even when I was unreasonable and impatient. They stood by me like the soldiers they are. Some soldiers wear BDUs, these soldiers wear suits- and they will go to war for you.”
