"Outstanding Lawyer"

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.
