I am blessed to have selected Mr. Hilliard to handle my most recent case. He was able to bring fairness in the courtroom concerning my case and fought hard to ensure my side was clearly explained. I am grateful for his dedication to my case.

Jackson Hilliard represented me on a D.U.I. and open container charges. I was adamant that I was not guilty of either charge brought upon me. I explained the encounter of events with the law enforcement officers to Jackson and why I had great concern that I was treated unfairly during the investigation process of the traffic stop. He reviewed the officer’s evidence or lack of evidence and immediately identified several inconsistencies in the officer’s reports. I refused to settle for anything but a traffic infraction, no criminal charges or we would go to trial. Jackson Hilliard agreed and felt really positive about this case. The state attorney office only wanted to negotiate a reckless driving. So trial it was.
Jackson was prepared with a well thought out strategy. The week before the trail, Jackson successfully won the motion to suppress the open container which I felt never should have been charged. His strategy proved that the testimony by the officers failed to follow several policies and procedures. The following week, we went to trial for the D.U.I. Jackson was able to show several inconsistencies in the officer’s report and their testimony. He was methodical with picking the jury. Jackson easily proved to the jury that I was not guilty without a reasonable doubt. He highlighted all the evidence that proved that was I not guilty and asked the law enforcement officers why there were so many inconsistencies in their reports at trial. He constantly had me write down additional inconsistencies in the officer’s testimony and questioned the officers on those inconsistencies. The Jury deliberated for about 20 minutes and delivered justice: NOT Guilty. He is great lawyer and I could not have chosen a better lawyer.
Thank you Jackson Hilliard!

Mr. Hilliard is the "go-to" attorney when it comes to DUI issues. A lot of attorneys will say they take DUI cases and many will do an adequate job on simple cases but Mr. Hilliard knows the law inside and out and knows what to do when there are issues outside the average case. I highly recommend him.
