Thank you for the positive reviews

The Hills law firm is better than good, to say the least. I have had the pleasure of retaining Both Jessica Lafond and just recently Mike Hills. They handled the business and are very professional and personable. If you ever have any problems; just do yourself a favor and run for the HILLS 🏃 🏃 🏃......... CASE DISMISSED........

If you need a lawyer, you want someone with both professional experience and expertise, and who takes a personal interest in his client. Mike Hill is outstanding at both the professional and the personal aspects of his work, and would be one of the best, a world-class lawyer no matter where he practiced law. His clients are fortunate he decided to practice in the Kalamazoo area. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Where to start! Mike Hills is amazing. My wife and I were facing some major life changes. Mike was able to get my federal charge reduced down to almost nothing. During the whole process he was there for my family, always willing to talk and answer all my questions. Worth every penny! He truly does care. Thanks Mike!!
