Client Reviews
★★★★★
“I live on the east coast. I needed a lawyer to represent me in a personal injury suit. Never having been involved in lawsuit before, I didn't know what to expect. I selected John Hill based upon my research of Bay area attorneys and was not disappointed. He and his staff were very easy to communicate with despite the distance and 3 hour time zone difference. They are knowledgeable and have a huge base of experience. Most of all, I was always treated with kindness and respect as we moved through the process. Needless to say, I am extremely satisfied with my settlement. Without reservation, I give my whole hearted recommendation to Mr. Hill and his staff.” Cathy Walls
