I am please to provide a professional recommendation for Mr. Hamilton. He represented the City of Anderson in negotiations with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, the U.S. E.P.A., and the U.S. Department of Justice. Mr. Hamilton provided sound advice and counsel to the City of Anderson to ensure their efforts were in compliance with the federal consent decree. In my experience with Mr. Hamilton, he has acted in a friendly and professional manner to assist us in resolving the variety of issues related to compliance. I have enjoyed working with Mr. Hamilton and wish him continued success in the future.
