Recipient of the 2015 Honorable Raymond W. Fox Advocacy Achievement Award 

On May 8, 2015 James D. Hills, founding father of Hills at Law, P.C., was awarded the most prestigious award for trial advocacy in Southwest Michigan.  The award is called the Raymond W. Fox Advocacy Achievement Award, named after one of Kalamazoo’s most respected judges Raymond W. Fox.

Every year a committee is appointed by the Kalamazoo County Trial Lawyers Association to explore deserving judges and lawyers for this award.  If the committee has a candidate they bring him or her to the entire membership of the Kalamazoo County Trial Lawyers Association for a vote.  As can be seen by the list of past honorees the award is not given out every year.
