Testimonials

I am a criminal defense attorney in San Rafael, California, and have been working with John Hamel for many years in my domestic violence cases.

I have benefited from his trainings, have consulted with him regarding various cases, and regularly refer clients to his court-approved domestic violence perpetrator groups because his compassionate, evidence-based treatment approach is superior to the confrontational style used in other programs."
