Matt Hamel

Virginia Beach military divorce lawyers

Matt Hamel, a licensed attorney in three states (Virginia, Pennsylvania & New Jersey), is the founder of Hamel Somers Law & Military Divorce, P.C.

Hamel Somers Law is a Virginia law firm dedicated to serving citizens of Hampton Roads in civil and criminal litigation. Whether the need is for criminal, civil or personal injury litigation, Hamel Somers Law is a full service law firm dedicated to providing tenacious litigation services.

Before practicing in the Virginia, civilian court system, Matt served for six years on active duty as a Navy JAG Attorney and he is still an active, drilling Navy JAG Reservist. Matt was promoted to Commander (O-5) in the Navy Reserves in 2017.

Matt served his first two years on active duty in the Navy’s busiest litigation office as a prosecutor and then volunteered for a tour of duty in Iraq during the “surge.” He was stationed on board Forward Operating Base Camp Cropper in Baghdad, Iraq and worked inside a theater internment facility there. He was attached to Task Force 134, which handled Detainee Operations – and he was responsible for the “parole-style” review boards of the highest value detainees to include the former Ba’athist Party members and “Deck of Cards” detainees.

Upon his return from Iraq, Matt served his last few years of active military service as the Staff Judge Advocate to the Commodore, Destroyer Class Squadron and as the Assistant Force JAG to Commander, Naval Surface Force U.S. Atlantic Fleet.

Since affiliating with the Navy Reserves in 2011, Matt has also served on the legal staffs of U.S. Fleet Forces Command and Commander, Navy Personnel Command.

In 2018, Matt was elected to serve on the Chesapeake City Council and he is serving a 4-year term.

Over the years, Matt has represented literally hundreds and hundreds of clients in criminal matters, divorce litigation, and in a variety of civil litigation concerns.
