I would highly recommend David Hiden to anyone needing legal help. He recently helped me resolve a matter where at best it was a long shot that I would experience a successful result. I was most impressed with the promptness with which Mr. Hiden responded to my emails and phone calls. His understanding of the facts and the aggressiveness with which he pursued my rights were instrumental in a positive result. I was very fortunate to have had Mr. Hiden on my side. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal help.

I spoke with Dave Hiden a couple of weeks ago. I had some concerns I wanted to inquire about. He not only took the time to help me though I hadn't even retained him. He just directed me with suggestions and also helped me by writing an email that I could use for reference. He was amazing, thoughtful and followed up. He did not have to do that. It shows me a lot about his character and this firm. Thank you Dave.

I am taking precious time to do this because I believe it so important. I do not want any other person to have the experience my wife and I had with this firm. I am an educator. I am a union member and an elected board member of a local union in San Diego County. I am also a member and past state delegate of the largest education union in California.
In MY humble opinion, this firm
1. Failed to communicate in a professional manner and made me and my wife feel like a number and that we didn't matter.
2. Gave blue-sky promises about my case, which caused us to go through 3 unnecessary years of hell
3. Failed to execute due diligence with various aspects of communication (myself, insurance company and other counsel), paper filing, form filing, follow through with medical providers, and sending me to inadequate (quack) medical providers.
4. Left me physically and financially worse off than when I started. All based on their guidance
5. Gave similar horrible guidance with thankfully lesser impact to 3 other colleagues of mine
I could leave this and never mention it. I could go on and just live out my days knowing this is over and I don't have to spend more time on it. However, I cannot in good conscience recommend this firm to any individual or have any union body recommend this firm to its workers. While I am sure they have done some good work as is indicated by some of the reviews, their complete an utter failure and eventual indifference in terms of our case forces me to ask potential clients "Why would you want to take the risk?".

I contacted David Hiden for an issue related to an apartment rental. As the tenant, I needed to clarify what compensation I was entitled to due to major water damage that occurred in the unit. Mr. Hiden was very generous with his time for he called me back to discuss the issue and then he also offered to review the letter I was going to send to the apartment owner's insurance. In addition, after promptly reviewing the letter, he let me know that I could reach out to him for anything else needed regarding the matter. His advice was excellent and straight forward and he was both personable and open to help. Very decent indeed, thank you!

David helped me sort through the mirage of legal issues regarding my employment law case. I couldn't have understood how to handle this without his expertise. He listened to my situation very clearly and gave the legal position. Thank you David~!

Mr. Hiden was recommended by the California Teachers Association. Not only was Mr. Hiden extremely helpful, he was thorough, conscientious & most informative.
He gave me his full attention, thoroughly answered my questions & guided me in the right direction. Mr. Hiden was a pleasure to speak with & I highly recommend his services. Needless to say, thanks to Mr. Hiden's advice my situation has resulted in a satisfactory outcome.

I was referred to Mr. Hidén through a teacher's union. He was more than helpful and incredibly prompt with everything. Not only did he help get me absolved of any wrong doing in a fraudulent claim against me but he also refunded the remainder of my retainer (due to his services being complete). He could have easily held on to the remainder of my retainer. However, not only did he feel that was not worth it but he felt that was immoral. To put it bluntly, he is the type of person that people wish were lawyers.
I will absolutely recommend him to everyone who is in need of law services.

I recently contacted Dave about a possible case and he was very knowledgeable and kind while explaining all my options. His feedback was easy to understand and would support me no matter which direction I decided to go. I felt very well informed because he seems to have a great understanding of the law. He was sensitive to my concerns and is ready to move forward if and when it is time.

Mr. Hiden was instrumental in helping me resolve an issue with another lawyer. Without his help, I believe I would have been in for a long time consuming and frustrating conflict and the end result would not have been as good as Mr. Hiden was able to negotiate. His knowledge of personal injury law, liens and his passion for making things right were really a life saver for me.

Dave Hiden helped me with a matter that involved an attorney that was not doing the job I hired him to do. Dave was very professional, and quick, when answering phone calls and e-mails. After dealing with an attorney that did nothing, for over a year and a half, it was a huge relief to have Dave, and his staff, working for me. Dave was able to get my entire fee back from the dishonest attorney. I will recommend Hiden, Rott, & Oertle to all my family and friends who need legal assistance.
