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
“Intensely dedicated to getting the best results possible for me on several cases. John Hill tells you honestly and clearly the pluses and minuses of your case and makes sure you understand completely all options. He is completely professional and one of the most affable persons you will ever meet.” Dan Wilson
