Six months ago, I borrowed a friend's car for a couple of hours while mine was in the shop. I didn't know that my friend's car was missing the right rear light and the cops stopped me. I gave them my license and my friend's registration and insurance card. The cops told me to step out of the car and they began searching the car without giving me a reason and found some pot under the passenger seat. I tried to tell the cops that the car wasn't mine and neither was the pot, but they arrested me anyway. When we got to the station, I asked to make a phone call, but by the time they let me have my one call, it was already 6 o'clock. I remembered that a buddy of mine had something similar happen to him and he said this lady lawyer helped him a lot. I only remembered her last name, Tillis, no phone number or anything. The cops knew her and gave me her number. Boy, was I surprised she was still at her office. She told me to stay calm, not to speak to anyone and she would be there in 20 minutes. Ms. Tillis came to the station in 15 minutes. I don't know what she told the cops, but they let me go and gave me a court date. At the preliminary hearing she got the cop on the stand and ripped him to pieces. The district justice dismissed my case. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the law, her willingness to help me without even knowing me or if I could pay her and the respect the cops gave her at the police station. I won't go anywhere else for a lawyer. She's the best!!!

My 19 year old son got a DUI in July, 2013, and was too scared to tell me until a week before his preliminary hearing. The lawyer I used in the past was on vacation, so I asked a co-worker the name of the lawyer he used when he got a DUI last year. He gave me Andrea Tillis' business card and I called her immediately. She gave me an appointment for 6 o'clock that evening so I wouldn't have to lose time from work. She explained the law to me and my son, what to expect at each stage of the proceedings and what options my son had. I was very impressed by her thorough knowledge of the law, her down to earth approach and her genuine compassion for my son's situation. When we left her office, I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders. I was even more impressed by her ability to negotiate with the DA and the policeman and got them to agree to a plea for my son. Thanks to Andrea, my son won't have a DUI on his record. Her experience shows and I can see why she is a well respected lawyer in the community. I will be forever grateful that my former lawyer was on vacation and to my co-worker who gave me Andrea's business card. I highly recommend Miss Tillis and I know I will be using her again very soon.

Andrea Tillis is one of the most conscientious attorneys I have ever met. She has gone above and beyond what I would have expected a lawyer to do. She came highly recommended from an acquaintance who had retained her for a complicated real estate matter and he was extremely impressed. I needed a lawyer for my divorce and custody cases and I was equally impressed with her extensive knowledge of family law . I highly recommend Ms. Tillis. I will certainly use her again.
