Client Testimonials

Real Testimonials. Real Clients.

I retained Mr. Hilton to represent me in a real- estate feud and after wards 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 the case against me was dismissed before it ever went to trial. To say I’m pleased would be an understatement!

Mr. Hilton is a great lawyer! I had a DUI/Open Container charge that he dropped to a DUAC with no jail time. He answered all my questions promptly and was really nice and nonjudgmental. He’s a very smart man who obviously cares about his clients. Even after the case was closed he continued to answer my questions. His staff is awesome and everyone is very sweet. Highly recommended!!

~ Katie

Mr. Hilton was up front with me about what my outcome may be and was pretty thorough when the time came to talk about my case, and formulate a plan. I guess most people are nervous about court but he was very professional standing beside me and the outcome was better than I could have hoped for. I would call Mr. Hilton and his staff again but I hope I never have to.

~ Rob

To say that I was surprised and shocked to find out that there was a warrant out for my arrest from 8 years ago is to put it mildly. I was traumatized, confused and truly did not understand what was going on or how to fix it. The case progressed exactly as Russell and his team said it would from our very first meeting, and is now dismissed and expunged from my record completely. This is an amazing team that produces results!

Mr. Hilton is a professional. He knows what he is doing, from both sides of the aisle. He makes sure that he gets all the facts and then he makes a plan that works. His representation of me was spot on and he knows SC law. His office staff is very professional, and they are easily contacted. Actually, they check in from time to time if they haven’t heard from you just to make sure everything is ok. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Hilton for any and all legal matters. If he does it, it is going to be solid. I give my word as a Southern Gentleman on that (and we don’t do that lightly). Thank you, Russ, for all that you did for me.

Very Sincerely Yours,

~ Wade

Handled the situation quickly and with all the outcomes we had hoped for

I was blessed to have such an amazing, personable lawyer in my life during a time like that. Not only did Russell treat me like a friend but he went out of his way to make sure I was protected and knew everything I needed to know about my case. He made me feel safe during such a hard time. Not only did I get a wonderful outcome but I gained a life long lawyer, if ever needed again. I recommend him to the highest existent.

~ Diane

Excellent. This lawyer talked with me on the phone before meeting in person for 30 minutes. He answered all my questions. He was located in my town, and he was 1500.00 less than all the other attorneys I contacted. He knows the SC statutes and was able to recite them to the judge. He was well prepared and he was willing to work with me on his retainer fee. I would recommend this attorney to everyone I meet.

~ Ed

I came to Mr Hilton thinking I had no chance of getting out of a DUI. He made no guarantees except that he would do everything in his power to get me out of it. I have a class a CDL which complicated things very much. He went above and beyond every step of the way (and this path is littered with steps) working out every problem we encountered. He can get things done that without an attorney would be impossible. He is an excellent communicator and very reasonable on his prices. I feel blessed and extremely grateful that I found him. My life begins again today! Thank you Mr and Mrs Hilton for a job well done.

~ Greg

We contacted the office of Russell Hilton to review a will, trust and related documents prepared in another state. His first comment was that these documents are generally accepted state to state. But he would review them. I asked how much for the review? His response: it is free unless I find something worth changing. I sent him the documents electronically. His office response was that certain documents (i.e. Living Will and other documents) were legal and proper. But they were not in format generally used in SC. So we asked him to review them, update them and file them. We don’t need to have to explain them in an emergency situation. We visited his office and met with his friendly staff. In the course of an hour, 4 documents times 2 people were updated and made consistent with SC norms. As these are critical to us, we were glad he and his staff could make the new documents quickly and properly. His staff is professional, proficient and knowledgeable. They match their attorney’s expertise and professionalism. Russell D. Hilton is now our new attorney.

~ Gerald

I would personally like to say THANK YOU to Russell Hilton and Beth Hilton for all the hard work they have put into my case. I have no complaints whatsoever. Knowledgeable, dependable, sincere, understanding, and sympathetic are just a few words I would use to describe this law firm. Not every body that needs a lawyer is a bad person. Not every body that needs a lawyer is guilty. Sometimes unfortunate events happen to good people and Russell never once assumed I was guilty just because I was accused of doing something. I was never led to believe the best outcome of my case would be achieved just so he could get my business. Russell was upfront and honest with me about his opinions and kept me well informed every step of the way. Beth was a great person to talk to when I needed an updated and I never felt like I was just another file number on their long list of clients. I personally would recommend Russell to anybody that needs a lawyer. I hope to never need an attorney in the future, but I know who I will call if the need ever arises. Thank you again Russell and Beth. You have been great. My family and I are very grateful for the hard work you have completed on my behalf. Good luck in the future and keep doing great things.

~ Jason

It was a pleasure working with Russ, he and Beth were both excellent in keeping me in the loop with what was going on with my case. He is very knowledgeable and know a lot of people…got my case all cleared up in 2 months! nothing on my record after January!!

~ Devin

I recently had some legsl issues which required a lot of contact with law enforcement. Russel was able to show them the inconsistances in the information used to form the case against me. My wife lied and he showed the detectives from their audios and videos where she contradicted herself. Russel’s contact with those law enforcement personnel resulted in the charges being dropped.

~ Donald

Recently moved to South Carolina (love it) from Texas and had an issue in Goose Creek. Russell D. Hilton is the “go to guy”. Great result due to his hard work and representation.

~ Thomas

Down to earth southern gentleman, who is insightful . Not your typical lawyer stereotype.Someone who you want on your side. I will definitely use Mr. Hilton again if the need arises.

~ Don

After months of discouraging and bleak insight from my previous attorney, contacting Russell was absolutely the best decision I could have made regarding my case. Not only was he patient and thorough in explaining my options, he was able to get the best possible outcome for my case. An incident arising from an improper traffic stop, led me to being indited on serious drug charges with penalties that could have been tragic. I would recommend that everyone contact Russell and allow him the chance to review your case. It was the best decision I could have made, and if in the future, it will be the only call I will make. Thank you Russell for your support and knowledge regarding my case.

~ Heath

I met with Attorney Russ Hilton about a very sensitive matter that came up a few months ago. He was very compassionate to the situation and extremely helpful. It was a difficult time and I was flustered but Mr. Hilton was very patient and the whole time he was always a step ahead and very knowledgeable as to what needed to be done and how to handle things. If anything comes up in the future where I need an attorney, he will be the first person I call and I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney in the area.

~ Lisa

Short and Sweet” Met With Mr.Hilton one time to discuss the case and next thing I know , charge dismissed. Thank you again

~ anonymous

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.

Mr. Hilton was an excel lent lawyer that very well exceeded my expectations. He was very professional and made my first experience with an attorney very positive. Since day one, Mr. Hilton worked with me and updated me on my case. He is very straight forward, experienced, and confident in his abilities. I could not have asked for a better outcome at my court hearing. If I have any more legal needs I will definitely be contacting Mr. Hilton again and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

“Sharp, Experienced and Diligent”

Mr. Hilton’s years of experience as a local county prosecutor served me very well when I was in need of representation. This, along with his thorough legal research and familiarity with local magistrates and law enforcement officials, led to acquittal. Mr. Hilton’s able professionalism and wits are worth every penny when you are in need of sage legal advice from a most able agent of the court.

“Timely returned call”

Excellent call back time, Mr. Hilton phoned me back on Sunday after I had left a message for a return call late Saturday. Explained all options and possible out comes prior to court. Then in court he negotiated an outcome that I would never have been able to achieve with out his representation. Thank You, FW
