Mr. Hinz hired me to do law clerk project work when I was a stay-at-home mom/wife with two young daughters living in Rancho Santa Margarita with a fax machine and a small law library(graduation gift from my parents) to earn extra income for our small family. I remember one of the projects Mr. Hinz and I completed was a motion for summary judgment and he won the case for his client with one efficient legal maneuver. On the rare occasion when I would need to drive from RSM to drop off or pick up legal work, his secretary, who lived in the Whittier/Santa Fe Springs area, would meet me near her home so I didn't have to drive the distance to the Brea/La Habra office with my small children. The kids and I could also visit our grandparents who lived in SFS on the same trip. Mr. Hinz is an extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, and respectable attorney, and I would strongly recommend him without hesitation.
Bill, Talked a big game however he never delivered, He was given information from day one and did not even set up a court date for arrears. He Told me it would cost me up front 500.00 for child who was over 18, 1200.00 for child visitation and 700.00 for Arrears of child payment. I have paid over 2800.00 and we never even went to court!!!!!!!!!!He does not return phone calls or answer his e-mail, today I let Gloria know I was firing him and will be calling the state bar as well as taking him to court. I have never been so disapointed in my life and I hope he chooses another line of work because he has no right being an attorney...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would definitely NOT recommend attorney William (Bill) Hinz. We hired Bill Hinz for a modification to a current child visitation order, and to establish custody for a second child (two separate cases at the same time.) Bill and his secretary Gloria gave us the run around for months. They were rarely in the office when I would call and even when I was able to get a hold of Gloria, I was always rushed off the phone with no real answers to any of my questions. During the actual court hearing, Bill Hinz did not look out for our (his client’s) best interest and even left out very important specific items that we had requested to be included our court order. We in turn had to hire a new attorney to re-submit both of our child custody court orders to have them corrected. It was a waste of both my time and money hiring Bill Hinz. I was very unsatisfied with the level of service I received from both Bill Hinz and his staff.
I would not recommend this lawyer. I feel that he took my money and did nothing to help win the case. He did not responded to calls or keep me informed and I think I was overcharged and ripped off by him.
