The most competent attorney I have ever known…As the mother of a client and a former paralegal, I have to say that Scott Hilderman is the most competent attorney I have ever known. Not only did he get the job done, but from the moment we hired him he made us believe that everything would be alright. I would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone with legal issues. He’s the best!

I Can’t thank you enough…Scott, I can’t thank you enough for the stellar representation I received from you. The stress from legal matters is unsettling to say the least, and it was a monumental relief to have an attorney that gave me assurance that not only was everything going to be alright, but also, that I had somebody on my side. You were confident, helpful, and easily accessible to me to answer any questions I may have had. I would, and will, refer your services to anyone who may need them.
Sincerely, Timothy J. Standiford

Absolutely Invaluable…Scott Hilderman was absolutely invaluable to me during this very difficult time in my life. I had been with another attorney for over a year that could only get me a deal to plead guilty to something I was innocent for. After withdrawing and hiring Scott, he managed to do in 2 weeks what my previous attorney could not do in over a year. His confidence, knowledge and all around generosity made the worst experience in my life easier. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking counsel. I honestly cannot thank him enough.
Nothing Short of Amazing…I would like to take this opportunity to thank Scott Hilderman for changing my life. A few years ago I was facing false accusations, which resulted in criminal charges. Over a three year period, I had retained three different attorneys, and spent tens of thousands of dollars, and found myself at a dead end. I then met Mr. Hilderman and my life was forever changed. The possible consequences I was facing were terrifying, and I truly felt my situation was hopeless. Scott was nothing short of amazing. He not only believed in me when I was at my darkest, he stood by me, worked hard, and fought for me like no one else had. Six months later I was acquitted of all charges, all thanks to Scott and his legal expertise. The process was insanely difficult, but having Scott on my side made all the difference. I would highly recommend Mr. Hilderman to anyone. Thank you Scott, I am forever grateful.

I retained Scott Hilderman for my DUI charge and Scott represented me all the way through jury trial. I was found not guilty and I believe it was because of his mastery in the courtroom. He was phenomenal. Really knows the law. I owe my freedom right now to him. Could not be more happy with how things worked out.
