Winning a criminal case can mean a lot of different things. Depending on the facts and circumstances of a case, winning could mean an acquittal at trial. It could mean getting the charges dropped, dismissed or significantly reduced. It could mean deferred sentencing or placement in a diversion program. It may even mean a favorable plea agreement.

Whatever your personal goals may be, Mr. Hill has the skills and 28 years of trial experience to formulate an effective strategy to accomplish those goals, and follow though until those goals are reached, either at trial or through negotiation. Having a clear goal and well thought-out strategy will do you no good in a criminal case if your defense attorney does not have what it takes to follow through.

Excellent attorney
I give David Hil Attorney of Law my highest recommendation. Without him and his staff, I would not be a free man getting to spend time with family and love ones. Mr. Hill and his staff worked diligently on my case from the first phone call I gave. Without him I would of never been found innocent of all charges. Even years after my court case he still keeps in contact to see how I'mdoing. I would call Mr. Hill again in a heartbeat. Again I am very grateful to Attorney David Hill.

A Nightmare
When we were thrown in to a nightmare the spiraled, we had to fi d an attorney out of our area to help me with so.e very serious charges, 1st degree robbery 2nd degree Robbery , unlawful use of a weapon ,my world became unglued. The hint was on for a good attorney who would listen and believe in me . When I first met with Mr Hill , he showed me that he was someone I could trust , he hired investigators, expert witness and this was a game changer, not many lawyers would go to this trouble. He kept me posted and told me straight what was happening scary as this all was for me and my family he went beyond proving that he was a honest hard working g and smart attorney. He never doubted and that gave me confidence to face this nightmare. I need to add he won this case for me and gave me my life back ,. I would highly recommend Mr Hill and respect him beyond words. He gets a 5+ star

Without hesitation, I give Dave Hill my highest recommendation.
Words can’t describe how amazing of a lawyer Dave is. Because of him, I got the best possible outcome for my case and I couldn’t be more thankful. He stood with me through everything and helped me immensely through a difficult situation. He was at every single court hearing, responded to every phone call, and was always there every time I had a question. He is genuine, professional, an amazing person, and especially an incredible lawyer. He will fight with you through the end and fight to get you the best possible outcome in your case. He truly cares about you and your future. Dave also has a wonderful receptionist that is not only friendly and welcoming, but also makes sure to get messages to Dave promptly and never misses a phone call. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today if it weren’t for Dave. Thank you Dave for your hard work and dedication through this tough time in my life, it means so much to me. If you’re looking for a lawyer who will fight to get you the best outcome, fight for your future, and be there for you throughout it all, Dave is definitely your guy.

If you are in need of a criminal attorney, Dave Hill is your guy!
Throughout my case he maintained constant communication, ensuring I understood every step of the process, protected me from any unfair treatment within the legal system, and accommodated my financial situation with low fees. His dedication and expertise resulted in the best possible outcome for my case. Dave is truly an amazing guy who genuinely cares about his client's well-being and isn't afraid to fight for you. I know he did for me and I couldn't be happier! ~Ashley Bauer'Phillips

A good lawyer.
Mr. Hill does what other lawyers only say they can do, which is give you realistic options and effective representation. He knows how to win. From the first time I told Mr. Hill about the facts of my case he immediately recognized where the police had violated the law and vigorously attacked the state's case. After four and a half years, through effective trial representation which kept me from going to prison, he won my case in the Court of Appeals and preserved that win in the Oregon Supreme Court. All my charges have now been dismissed. On a more personal level, Mr. Hill understands how criminal proceedings can wreck someone's life, and through this almost five year ordeal he has shown me nothing but concern and compassion. If you need an effective attorney who cares what happens to you, Dave Hill is your guy. . Willaim N.

Do not let this guy defend you in any serious criminal case with high stakes, especially if you are not guilty. If you are guilty, go with Dave Hill and you will definitely get what you have coming, and probably more.
