"I love fighting for my clients. Their cause is mine. Becoming an attorney was not fun, but I love being an attorney. In my spare time, I enjoy horseback riding and fishing the Cooper and Wando."

Mr. Hammett has served as a Managing Associate of Cobb, Smith & Frost Law Firm, and in December of 2013, the Cobb Dill & Hammett Law Firm was born when three professional friends decided to combine their efforts and create a new everyman law firm.
