I grew up in a family full of lawyers. I payed Hilary and she did nothing for me. I fought cps for almost 5 years. Hilary was late to every court date, every meeting, and every mediation. Several times she cancelled my court dates due to "personal reasons" or that she booked too many appointments in one day.
After my case was over I received transcripts of what cps and the foster parents were offering to me, Hilary was actually telling me the opposite!

Hilary Unger did an excellent job on fighting CPS to give my son age 7 months back in my full custody. She speaks truthfully with sharp points. She has a knowledge about Deaf rights. She has reviewed very carefully on our case- I mean EVERY details. Many lawyers are unwilling to take our case to fight with CPS because they are so scared of CPS. But Hilary is the only one who willing to keep fighting. The case lasted five months- tough battle. My husband and I highly recommend you to call Hilary, she will promptly attention to your cases. We are very grateful and blessed to have her as our lawyer, we won't forget her. If any future something bad happen, we will use her again.

I have found Hilary to be a very caring and capable attorney, she has kept me informed about our case as it progressed. Although she is busy she always is prompt at returning phone calls and answering emails and text. I appreciate the fact that she takes her position seriously and is delegent in her defense of her clients. I appreciate every effort she has made in my behalf. Thanks Hilary your hard work has not gone unnoticed.
