    Mr. Hilliard is the "go-to" attorney when it comes to DUI issues. A lot of attorneys will say they take DUI cases and many will do an adequate job on simple cases but Mr. Hilliard knows the law inside and out and knows what to do when there are issues outside the average case. I highly recommend him.

    Jackson shows a lot of enthusiasm about the law and his practice. I have also attended a DUI symposium with Jackson and he displayed a wealth of knowledge at that meeting. I would recommend him to others.
