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!!
When faced with some serious charges I employed Mike Hills at hills law offices and he did not disappoint. He was able to negotiate and get my sentence reduced greatly. He prepared me well before my sentencing. I’m very happy with the results of his hiring!
