  • John Anthony Schipper

    I always refer potential bankruptcy clients to John because I know he is extremely knowledgeable in that area of law. I've received nothing but positive feed back from these referrals.

  • Christopher Daniel Leroi

    Mr. Hilla is one of the most exemplary and extraordinary attorneys that I have encountered in 24 years of practice. Despite being a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, and private attorney for nearly two and a half decades, I continue to learn valuable information from his posts every day. I would highly recommend.
