    Out-of-Town Counsel

    With the return to in-person Court attendances, there have been an increasing number of requests for adjournments from out-of-town counsel. As a result, the Hamilton Law Association has compiled a list of local counsel who are interested in doing agency work for out-of-town or other counsel who are not available to attend in person. 

    If you are interested in being sent this list, please email Nicole Strandholm at
