I am a Salt Lake City-based attorney. My primary focus is to help individuals who are often experiencing litigation for the first time. Going to court can be scary. In my practice most of my clients have never been to court before and need help to represent them in front of the Judge. I have practiced as a defense attorney as well as a plaintiffs attorney. I practice primarily in family law and personal injury law.

Client Reviews
Mckail is an amazing young attorney that knows exactly what to do. More knowledgeable than some of her peers that have been practicing for over 20 years. Very detailed oriented in the entire process. Has no problem confronting other lawyers when it comes to fairness of her clients. Would recommend to anyone going through a divorce to call Atticus Legal Group before anyone else. Marc N.
Mckail Hamilton is professional, she has a great understanding of what the needs and wants of her clients are. She also is able to offer realistic expectations and she works hard to get things done in a timely manner. Mckail made this emotional process a lot more manageable for me. Thanks again. Amy M.
