Hillary M. Nappi has always believed that children are precious, and that we have a responsibility to protect them, advocate for them, and give them every opportunity in life. Hillary is an associate at Hach & Rose, LLP and practices in the areas of complex civil litigation involving children and minors.

Her passion lies in giving a voice to those who have been silenced too long. Ms. Nappi fights tooth and nail to advocate for our children, becoming their strength in their weakest moments.

She’s currently litigating many cases against several entities – both public and private – in the wake of New York State’s recent passage of the Child Victims Act. She was awarded “Top 40 Under 40 Criminal Defense Attorneys” by National Trial Lawyer in 2018 and was named a 2018-2019 Super Lawyers Metro Rising Star. Her blossoming career is evidence of her superior ability and personal involvement in every case she tries.

Childhood sexual abuse survivor
I truly feel blessed to have found Hillary Nappi. After the NYS Governor signed the CVA, I started looking for a lawyer that would help me. Hillary listened and was willing to help. She is hardworking and committed to her clients.

A needle in a haystack
Hillary truly is one of a kind in a monstrous sea of legal professionals. The day I met Hillary was one of the best days of my life. I had been on my knee's for nearly 6 months begging every and any law firm to assist me with my childhood rape case. Some of the most "famous" lawyers, whom represent some of my friends, spoke to me for 5 seconds and said "Im too busy with "this church thing"," CLICK. Didn't even bother listening to my story. Hillary not only listened to my story, she diligently worked to uncover the hidden defendants in my case. I have referred any survivor of childhood sexual abuse I know to her, and will continue to do so for life. Hillary- you are an amazing woman and thank you for your service. The producers got it wrong, you should be the subject of a movie/documentary - remember the story about the guy who took the easy way out- and/or gave up? Exactly- neither does anyone else. You are a hero, and will go down in history as such. Mostly importantly, I am forever grateful for having our paths cross. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HILLARY.

Hillary saved my life!
As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I was desperate to find justice and peace of mind after the passage of the CVA. After interviewing dozens of attorneys, I only needed to speak with Hillary one time to know that she was the right fit for my case. She’s trained in trauma-informed care so that she’s well-equipped to handle these cases. Her compassion knows no limits, and her patience is limitless. Every step of the way, she continues to be there to answer every question I have and calm every one of my fears. I honestly never thought I would find an attorney like Hillary. She has brought me a sense of safety like no other could, and continues to work above and beyond to make certain that I find the justice I deserve. I don’t know where I’d be without her...and I’m grateful every day that I am blessed to have her as my attorney. My heart rests and I finally sleep at night.

Excellent, Hillary is 100% authentic and dedicated.
I have been working with Hillary for a little over a month now and I could not ask for a better attorney. She is as I mentioned in the title, 100% authentic and dedicated. Hillary is also extremely compassionate and that shows in her patience with me. She either answers my calls right away or gets back to me as soon as possible. The same goes for answering Emails. From a technical point of view, Hillary knows her stuff; in other words, she knows what she's doing. Based on what I presented to her, Hillary gave me all of my options. She explained the pros and cons of each one in detail. Once I made the decision to go in the direction I am going in, she was locked in on focusing her tremendous energy in being the best possible advocate. From a communication standpoint, Hillary has a way of making me feel comfortable and relaxed (as much as possible). At the risk of going on and on I'll say one final thing. "I would not want to work with any other attorney besides Hillary Nappi. If you need an attorney, Hillary Nappi is simply the best."
