Being my first offence larger than a speeding ticket I was really scared. I called Ben on a Sunday and he made time for me to meet with him that afternoon. He was very thorough on every step of what
happened that night while it was fresh in my memory. After researching the Check Points SOP, Ben found that it had not been followed by the arresting officer who did not have any reason to believe I was impaired prior to my exiting my vehicle on demand. After losing in District Court, I trusted Ben that we had a good chance of winning in Superior Court. Ben filed for appeal to Superior Court where we won our case due to the officer’s lack of evidence prior to ordering me from my vehicle and violating my Fourth Amendment Constitutional Right. Ben always made himself available whenever I had a question about the case or needed to miss court for an appointment or an important class. I am forever grateful for everything Ben did for me, helping me every step of the way.
Encountering legal issues was a scary experience for me. Luckily, I made the informed decision of hiring Ben Hiltzheimer. He met with me and forthrightly explained the possible legal ramifications of my case. He ardently defended me, made me aware of the actions I should take to mitigate the circumstance, and ultimately achieved the best possible outcome for my case. He remained with me for nearly 17 months, from the very start of the process to the very end. You do not merely need a competent defense, you need a great lawyer who is also a decent person: Ben Hiltzheimer.
Benjamin Hiltzheimer got my DWI charge dismissed.
From our first phone conference to my trial, six months later, Mr. Hiltzheimer and his staff were professional, prepared, and competent. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Hiltzheimer was informative and thorough. I felt like he represented me with the same sincerity and determination he would if representing a friend or family member.
Choosing the Hiltzheimer Firm was the right choice to protect my career and reputation. Benjamin Hiltzheimer successfully defended me throughout my DWI court process and was able to have the case dismissed. I couldn't be more pleased to have gotten the right result.
Benjamin Hiltzheimer at The Hiltzheimer Firm was an attorney I discovered after being falsely charged for a crime. I was very impressed with how he helped me beat the charge and how much work he put into resolving my case. He went out of his way to make sure my situation was handled correctly, and worked with me for a whole year without charging me for hidden fees, or extra time that he put into making sure my case was closed. He is an exceptional attorney and a great advisor, I highly recommend Mr. Hiltzheimer as a defense attorney. I can confidently say that The Hiltzheimer Firm will go out of their way for my better interest.
I recently received a Driving while license revoked charge, Mr. Hiltzheimer worked months at a time until my case was dismissed, If you need a very good lawyer HE IS YOUR GUY!
After a low key New Year's dinner, my worst nightmare happened. While driving home I was pulled and arrested for a DWI. Having never been arrested and having only a simple speeding ticket prior, to say the least I was having major concerns and stress over what next. I have never been in the legal system in my entire life.
I researched online and contacted several attorneys. Most didn't answer, some took messages, however Ben was back with me in 15 minutes. I had a lot of questions being the first time and he set up an appointment right away. After that initial interview, I knew I had my attorney. He was very detailed and supportive. He outlined clearly my next steps and spent hours working to get my case resolved. I truly felt he cared about my case. I cannot tell you enough how Ben's persistence, patience, confidence and hard work saved me. He chipped away on the case until we finally got a break with evidence and errors.
I truly believe that your understanding of the DUI trial process, dedication and the way you handled the case saved me from a conviction.
I was arrested and charged with DWI as well as ‘Refusal’ to submit to breathalyzer test at a Booze It & Lose It checkpoint in Wake County, NC. Needless to say, it was an extremely stressful situation to deal with as I was also undergoing chemotherapy treatment for terminal cancer at the time. The absolute last thing I needed was another major, life-altering situation. I immediately contacted Benjamin Hiltzheimer & was totally impressed by his straight-forward knowledge, professionalism, empathy and compassion. He treated me with respect and always made time address my questions & concerns, which went a very long way towards alleviating my anxiety so I could focus on the priority of my health. Ben’s integrity and diligence in proving the charges were false resulted in an outcome far beyond my expectations. Both charges were dismissed. I couldn’t be more pleased and want to convey my sincere thanks and gratitude for superb representation.
If you’re in need of a lawyer who believes in justice and fights your fight like it was his own, I highly recommend Benjamin Hiltzheimer.
Mr. Hiltzheimer is a great defense attorney. He is obviously well educated and very experienced. I would recommend him for any type of defense work. He put me at ease the first time we met.
I want to share my experience with Mr. Hiltzheimer. Maybe you don't know who to turn to, maybe you're scared and confused, or stressed out about your charges. He will be there for you and will to his best to help. In my opinion, Mr. Hiltzheimer is the best choice.
I received a criminal charge. I didn't know who to trust or even how to choose a lawyer. I did my research and chose a few lawyers to call and talk with. Most of the lawyers I talked to would tell me a price and that they would see me on the court day with no further work on the case until the day of court. Mr. Hiltzheimer was completely different. He spoke with me about my case and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. His quote was higher than the other lawyers. I told him I needed time to think about it. I even talked to a few more lawyers who returned my call. Then I called Mr. Hiltzheimer back and he was more than willing to talk to me again about the case. I realized that you get what you pay for and that this guy was well worth the asking price. I met with him and he was very helpful. He wanted me to understand everything about the case and seemed to really care about the outcome of the case. I was very impressed after meeting with him. He was professional, but not robotic. I had a few things come up about the case before the next time we needed to meet. He was willing to deal with those issues, even on a holiday while out of town. Again, I was impressed! We met again before my court date so he could walk me through how court works. I was more scared and stressed than I have ever been in my life! I knew he had other cases, but he still took his time with me and all of the questions I had. Then the court day arrived. We met before court and he gave me updates as often as he could during court. He knew I was scared and nervous and seemed to keep an eye out for me and how I was doing during the time at court. My case ended after one time of going to court and my charges were dropped! I had a lot to lose. He helped me get my life back and keep my career!
I hope I never have to go through that experience again. But if something were to happen again, I would choose Mr. Hiltzheimer. He is trustworthy and very competent! I couldn't find fault with how he handled everything if I tried.
