About Ember

Learn Ember’s areas of practice.

Since graduating from Vermont Law School in 2012, I have tried many cases before juries and have won a great majority of those trials. Even more often, I convinced the trial court to dismiss cases without the need for a trial. Whether charged with a crime, injured in an accident, looking to start a business, or buying a home, you need a lawyer you can count on. With me as your attorney, you can be certain you have an effective courtroom lawyer on your side, ready to fight for you.

An Exceptional Attorney and Great Person.
Ember S. Tilton, Esq., exhibited exceptional legal acumen and unwavering dedication while representing me in a protracted case spanning three years. In stark contrast to my previous legal counsel, who advised me to accept a plea deal regardless of my innocence, Mr. Tilton's arrival marked a pivotal turning point. His appointment to my case not only signaled a resolute commitment to justice but also a profound display of empathy. Throughout the legal proceedings, Mr. Tilton consistently demonstrated his willingness to go above and beyond, assuring me of his steadfast support in my decision to proceed to trial. His genuine compassion extended beyond the courtroom, as he provided me with clothing when I found myself in a state of homelessness in an unfamiliar environment. I hold Mr. Tilton in the highest regard, not only as an exemplary attorney but also as a person of exceptional character, characterized by a compassionate heart. Without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation marked by unwavering dedication and empathy. Ultimately, thanks to Mr. Tilton and his colleague, Austin, my case was dismissed—a remarkable outcome that defied the pessimistic counsel of my previous attorney.

Amazing attorney
Ember did more for me in one day than other attorneys have done in years. Highly experienced, passionate, and actually cares about his clients. I honestly don't know of a better attorney.

You wont find an attorney that not only cares about people in general, not just his clients & who works as hard as Ember does!!
I hired Ember with a recommendation from some one I have known for quite some time. He had gotten his case dismissed and rightfully so too. When I met Ember he was timely, very attentive, and understanding. He listened very carefully to everything I had to tell him. And he was so confident and sure of himself when he told me he thought he could win my case that I knew he was the person I needed to represent me. And I was right. It's not every day that you find an attorney like Ember. He will fight for you to the box. He is relentless and very smart. He doesnt give up when he runs into something that you might think is an end game. When something gets denied or turned down he finds another way to figure it out. And just when you think there are no more options or angles he says "I have a new idea" I happened to be out on bail on a misdemeanor case when he took my felony case on and I missed a court date on accident because I was confused about the dates and a warrant was issued. Ember told me to go down to the courthouse and reset my court date and he would make sure they didn't arrest me. I got down there bringing along my emotional support animal. At the time I didn't know that she couldn't come in the courthouse with me. When I got there having my dog raised a bunch of drama and the troopers after asking me my name detained me in handcuffs even after I told them my attorney told me to come down here. Thankfully the troopers let me make a phone call to Ember. The troopers told me he had 5 minutes to get down to the court house or they would have to remand me to the jail. Even though he wasn't even my attorney on that case he made it down to the court house in 4 minutes and even posted my $1000 bail. And not only did he post my bail, but there was an issue of where we could put my dog where we were figuring out all the paperwork and whatnot. She was still a small puppy and hardly potty trained and Ember still offered his car to let my puppy sit in there while we handled the paperwork. Needless to say of course she peed in his car. I felt so bad, but Ember just said it wasnt a big deal and she was a puppy. Now I would have been upset, but not Ember. He has a great attitude and a very kind spirit but MOST of all he is an AMAZING attorney. The last thing that I need to add is he was supposed to finish up my case before he moved from AK, but I ended up going on the run kind of messing with those plans. Not only was he extremely open and forthright about the fact he would be moving, he offered to stay on as my attorney and said he could file motions and do paperwork from out of state, but he warned me that if we ended up in trial that he more than likely wouldn't be able to make it back to AK for it and then refunded me a partial refund of $1000. Hes honest, hes a hard worker, he is relentless, and he is one of the best attorney's we have ever had in AK. We are definitely sad to see him go. Not many attorneys will fight against D.O.C or go to the lengths that Ember will. He isnt scared to fight for the underdog because he believes that they should have to follow the laws as they except us to. Thank you Ember. I know I promised to write this review awhile back but there was just so much I had to touch on and I get distracted so easily I had to get inspired. Thank you though Ember. If Ember is in your city choose him as your attorney he will fight for you.

I would hire Ember Tilton anyday. I contacted him in regards to my husbands case. He said if things don't look good within a couple weeks to call him back. He isn't about just taking your money because he can but I would hire him in a heart beat if necessary.

Even though he was not bound to do so, he has offered advice to my brother thru me online. He continues replying and commenting to every single question. I am in Mississippi , if I he were here, I would definitely hire this Attorney. He seems to genuinely care!

I don't even know where to begin. Ember was given to me as a public defender, and we all know how that usually goes. I was a mess, I had 10 years hanging over my head for something I didn't do, a misunderstanding/lack of investigation. He did everything he could to show this to the judge. The judge actually apologized to the jury for their wasted time, and told me how he hopes I can move on from this. Ember was incredible in that court room. Organized, clear headed. Showed the FACTS. He is wonderful, and I can't give him enough recognition for what he has done for me. I strongly suggest him for anyone's attorney!

I really appreciated all of Embers help, he personalized my case with him, and actually wanted to help me and didn't make me feel like just another client of his that he needed to help. He was very helpful, and quite hilarious! I was actually really bummed when he relocated and he was no longer my lawyer.
