Excellent Lawyer. The best of the best!
Words cannot express what an amazing attorney David Hill is! A family member had a legal issue and he went above and beyond to get the best outcome on the case. He is a kind, honest, and reasonable person, which is a Big plus. He also communicated and handled the case in a professional manner and answered all calls, texts, and emails. I can't thank him enough! I give David Hill my highest recommendation. In my opinion, he's the best in his field.

Best Choice in Town!
We hired David about a year ago to help our teenage son. He made a bad decision, got involved with drugs and paid the consequences. David was professional and understanding and went above and beyond in handling the case and was able to achieve excellent results! It was a very difficult time for us. He was always available, non-judgemental and guided us all the way. He is truly one of a kind. We recommend him without reservation.

David Paul Hill (Attorney with a heart of gold)
Attorney Hill, represented me in a DUI case what I thought would be the end of my career. I never appeared in court from the beginning to the end, and the case was thrown out, I would highly recommend attorney Hill, he will explain clearly and honesty what he can and/or can not do, me myself would any day without a doubt recommend attorney Hill. He goes beyond and above the call of duty. Very professional and honesty individual, he's not in for the $$$, he's a true professional from his heart of gold. :-)!

DUI case
Mr. Hill handled a first DUI case for my daughter. We are very happy with the results, not only because how he handled the case but also because how he helped us personally cope with the situation. Both me and my wife would recommend him.

Very happy with results!
About a year ago my fiancé, while in his last year of college, got a DUI. After an impeccable life, and a promising future, this was a shocking, and stupid, event. We talked to few attorneys and finally decided on Mr. Hill. Caring and straight forward, we thought he was the right person to help us with our problem. We couldn’t have made a better decision! Mr. Hill proved to be knowledgeable and committed to us…. The charges were dropped, and lesson learned. We recommend him.

Mr Hill, a Great Lawyer
When my son was charged with possession with intent to sell my wife and I were devastated. We felt helpless and confused. He had always been a straight-A student and a very well behaved kid. It turned out that two “very good friends of him” accused him of a crime just for them to be able to “get out of problems” and our world turned up-side-down. Fortunately a good friend of mine recommended David Hill. Mr. Hill handled the case immaculately and helped us get through the situation with his great advice. He was always available to answer our questions, while being straight forward and sensitive. Charges were dropped and we were able to continue our normal life again. We will always be grateful for having hired Mr. Hill and will recommend him to anyone charged with a criminal offense.
