Value & Experience

Our attorneys at HAMILTON THIES & LORCH LLP are experienced and focused.

We know that trust is a key aspect of our relationship with our clients.  Our success stems from our clients' confidence that our attorneys value relationships, focus on our clients' objectives, and protect and preserve privacy to help them achieve their goals.  We take pride in our ability to understand each client's unique situation and find practical and tailored solutions to their needs.


HAMILTON THIES & LORCH LLP was started as a boutique trust and estate law firm in 2005 by Robert E. Hamilton, Richard B. Thies and Kenneth F. Lorch and several younger attorneys. They wanted to better serve their clients at more reasonable rates than allowed at their large law firm.   In 2014, HAMILTON THIES & LORCH LLP expanded its services to add corporate and transactional capabilities with the addition of Marcia Owens and Thomas P. Duffy. 


HAMILTON THIES & LORCH LLP is committed to maintaining diversity and inclusiveness in our firm and the larger legal profession. We believe that collaboration among parties with different backgrounds, viewpoints, and perspectives provides our clients with the highest quality representation and provides our attorneys and staff with the best training and work environment.

Our attorneys have worked to promote, retain, and advance attorneys to further broaden the opportunities for diversity and inclusiveness in our legal community.
