What Our Clients Say

I had received the most helpful advice during my company’s bankruptcy process. John guided me with genuine care and professionalism that I truly feel that he and his staff knew what I needed during the most difficult time. I highly recommend this firm.

– Perry L.

A few years ago, I needed assistance with property foreclosure and I found John Hiltz’s office on the internet. I was very worried and stressed out, not sure what to expect as it has been my experience with some attorneys to be intimidating and sometimes a bit abrasive. I am so happy I met John, he was amazing from day one.

– Nhora R.

John Hiltz and his associates guided me through the Chapter 13 process to help clear off a very large group of debts caused by a business theft. They were very detailed, accompanied me to the bankruptcy court and worked out a greatly reduced final 5 year payment schedule. They always answered any questions I had and took care of any minor problems that came up.
