"I have worked with Ed Hammond for over twelve years. He and his team have consistently proven to be a wealth of information, frequently solving complicated issues and questions that were potentially costly and administratively cumbersome. When I've changed employers I've stated that, "There's a catch: I'm bringing my ERISA attorney with me." I am consistently amazed at how Ed can make tax code understandable and almost (almost) fun. "
"I have referred Ed Hammond to all of my peers and colleagues that require work on Employee Benefits (ERISA) matters. Mr. Hammond is the best labor lawyer I have worked with in the last 25 years. He is extremely well-versed on ERISA matters and knowledgeable about the changes in the law and compliance issues. Mr. Hammond is a skilled negotiator and is completely in his element when negotiating with organized labor, pension trustees, the PBGC or corporate human resource officers and staff. I have always received complete attention to my matters and timely well thought-out responses to my questions. Mr. Hammond is comfortable in court and at the negotiation table. Whether in court or a meeting hall, it is clear that Mr. Hammond is respected and considered a thought leader among his fellow professionals."
