What Clients Say
  • Mr. Hilton was fantastic in the time he represented me. From the beginning he was understanding, reasonable, and knowledgeable about how to proceed with everything. He also helped me out and turned my whole case into a huge learning experience rather than a negative one.

    Always quick to respond when I reached out to him or his wonderful secretary, and first to contact me when he had new information. I would certainly hire Mr. Hilton again and recommend him to anyone in need of a great, understanding attorney.

  • Mr. Hilton was absolutely the most communicative lawyer I have encountered; we were always able to reach him with any of our concerns. His professionalism and understanding was beyond what I could ever hope for. He was able to present a great defense and free my husband and me from a false accusation that could have ruined our livelihood.

    I couldn't have asked for a better individual to be by our side at a very frightening time. He was trustworthy, compassionate, caring, informative, a wonderful down to earth lawyer that was able to be "tough" enough to get the right thing done. I give Mr. Hilton my highest recommendation and he will also be the first person I contact for any further needs.

    Anonymous - Client

  • Luckily I don't have a whole lot of experience with lawyers, but I have to say without a doubt I was lucky when I chose Mr. Hilton. He is extremely easy to talk to and has the patience of a saint. I would have happily endorsed Mr. Hilton even if he didn't get the charges against my wife dismissed. His professional demeanor provide her an element of calm during an highly emotional time in our lives. When she had decided she just wanted it all to be over and plead guilty, he could have said ok as he was paid no matter the outcome, but with infinite patience he got her to understand what was in her best interest. Without a doubt he will be the person I suggest to provide legal support for anyone I know.

    Mark Parker - Client

  • I retained Mr. Hilton to represent me in a real-estate feud and afterwards he put everything on auto-pilot. He was proactive, kept me informed, and represented my best interest. Last but not least, he translated all the legal jargon into simple terms I could understand. The best part, is that the case against me was dismissed before it ever went to trial. To say I'm pleased would be an understatement!
