District Attorney Testimonials

(To the judge) "Your Honor, Mr. Hill has been extremely persistent in defending his client in this case and he should be commended. Mr. X (our client) you should know that your attorney never gave up. " -Mario Trujillo, Supervising District Attorney, Bellflower Courthouse

"Ma'am, I need to let you know that your attorney did a fantastic job for you. The policy of my head deputy is state prison on a case like this. So he did an excellent job for you. I just wanted you to know that." -Airport Courthouse

"Your client owes you his life. He is getting the chance to start afresh. Not many defense attorneys can negotiate as well as you." -Pomona Courthouse

Fellow Attorney Testimonials

"I have worked with or referred Greg Hill several criminal cases over the years and he has had outstanding outcomes in all of them, Ex. 1) Immigration client charged with Driving w/o license-dismissed, 2) Immigration client with DUI involved in an accident, weekend jail time (this was with a prior DUI). He has Spanish speaking staff, by the way.

Great outcomes Greg. I would definitely hire you if I was in the kind of jam that needed your kind of criminal expertise. The difference between hiring a dedicated, detail-oriented attorney like yourself, and most attorneys that I have seen "in action" is life changing. Hire the wrong attorney, lose your freedom, your kids, or get deported to another country." Lance, Gallardo, Esq., Santa Clarita, CA

"Mr. Hill is an outstanding attorney who provides exemplary advice on Avvo. I would recommend everyone and anyone to him for representation. Even though I have been practicing for 24 years, as a judge, magistrate, prosecutors, and in private practice, I learn valuable new information from him every day. A superb attorney." -Christopher Leroi, Greenwood Village, CO

"Greg is one of three of Southern California's wisest and most gifted criminal defense attorneys." -Christine C. McCall, Esq., Pasadena, CA

Community Leader Testimonials

"As President of Veteran Housing Corp, I have no reservations about recommending Greg Hill as an attorney to family members, friends and clients of Veteran Housing Corp. When a person is facing the prospect of a conviction, even for a misdemeanor, that can affect that person's future, they need an attorney that is knowledgeable, competent, fair and will do everything possible, within the law, to vindicate his client. Greg Hill is such a person. If you need an advocate that will effectively represent you to obtain a positive result, call Greg Hill. I rarely recommend attorneys, but make an exception with Greg Hill because he is highly qualified and very knowledgeable." - Reydel S. Santos, Veterans Administration

Client Testimonials

"I could not be more elated to hear of this news!  I cannot fully express my gratitude to you for taking on my case, understanding  my situation and doing everything in your power to arrive at a just outcome.

This definitely has been a learning experience for me that will forever influence my future decisions and actions.  At a college, where alcohol runs through the veins of nearly every social event, it is quite easy for myself, and I'm sure many others, to forget about the larger, negative implications it can have on one's life.  Attending those Alcoholics Anonymous meetings truly was eye opening and forced me to view not only this situation, but drinking in general, in a whole new light.  Serving almost as a 10-part cautionary tale for always remaining cognizant and careful, this has definitely been a journey that will consicously stay with me for years to come.

Again, I greatly appreciate your constant level of support and guidance throughout this whole process.  It has been a privilege to go through this with someone as knowledgeable and reassuring as yourself.  Thank you again and wishing you all the best."  C. J . Los Angeles.

"I've hired Greg Hill 6 times and hands down the only criminal defense attorney I trust.  He keeps getting me out of the messes I keep getting into.  Honest and most importantly won't rip you off.  Quiet, reserved, very polite.  Until you see him defending you in court...a true Doberman and that's who you want on your side."  A.L., Montclair

"Greg Hill & Associates are a great firm and were very easily accessible and had very good communication.  Greg was able to help me maintiain a clean record and have my case practically dismissed.  We got the best possible outcome and I am forever grateful."  T.A., San Pedro

"Straightforward, capable and an experienced professional.  Did what he said he was going to do and resolved the situation which worked out the way he said it probably would.  Would recommend."  Y.K., Orange County

"Excellent attorney.  Excellent service.  We hired this firm 12 years ago for a real estate dispute and Greg did a great job handling our case.  It was a long and often difficult case, but Greg always handled it with integrity and professionalism.  Thanks to his  hard work, the outcome was very favorable for us.  I highly recommend this firm."  K.B., Rancho Palos Verdes

"Mr. Hill is an excellent lawyer with a detailed, meticulous understanding of the law.  Greg is a military veteran and that methodical and disciplined approach is on display in his refusal to leave details to chance.  He constantly writes articles for publication on the web and in so doing keeps his legal skills sharp.  It is said that the best way to understand something is to explain it to someone else." D.F., San Francisco

"I can't believe it!  I just called Mr. Hill just now, 7:30 on a Saturday morning so I would have the law firm number to call on Monday, pre-dialed on my phone...and HE ANSWERED!!  We talked over a  half hour about my issue (after I read his column on a Google search) and he easily answered my questions and gave me great candid advice in how to go about solving my legal issues. I was so stressing out before Greg was able to sort through the mess.  I'm hooked on this law firm!!  I look forward to meeting him in person."  W. D., Riverside

"I cannot recommend Greg Hill enough.  If you are facing a tough criminal matter, there is no one else you should trust.  Greg is an expert, very professional and understanding; he asked me my goals and achieved them through systematic hard work and preparedness.  Greg and Sandra both are top notch professionals who have experience and expertise; their work is beyond reproach. Fair pricing, accommodating availability and an unceasing work ethic make Greg Hill and Sandra your best possible choice for legal defense.

My overall review of Greg Hill & Associates is five stars based on two cases he helped me have dismissed over a period of nine months.  The first one was a trespassing case that started when I attended classes at Cal State Long Beach while being behind on my tuition payments, but after being told by the school to go see certain faculty to be approved for reinstatement.  Complicating matters at the time, I had broken up with my then-girlfriend and she thought I was "stalking" her by being on the campus.  This led to a second case - she then filed a request for a civil restraining order.  I was then arrested for criminal trespassing at the school and served with a civil restraining order. 

I knew I could use professional help navigating these two cases, so I called Greg Hill & Associates.  I remember the very first call - it was before 7:00 a.m. and Greg answered the phone (hard to come by with most lawyers).  He gave me clear, solid advice on what to do and what not to do.  About two weeks later, I hired him for both cases.

Both cases were dismissed, which was and remains a great relief because I am applying for my teaching credential after having taught on an emergency credential and my school's heavy-handed approach toward me, as well as my vengeful ex's lies in the civil restraining order would have ruined this.  In a way, Greg restored things to what I had worked so hard for and for that , I am very grateful.  He sympathized with me and worked hard in both courthouses.  I really appreciated everything.  I did not want a criminal history I did not deserve or a restraining order against me based on lies.

If you're unsure about whether or not to hire Greg, let this be the sign pushing  you to.  I am forever indebted to Greg and Sandra and I happily wrote this review.  Hire them only if you want to win your case and restore your life's normalcy."  R. K., La Palma

"This is indeed good news.  I cannot thank you enough for your assistance in my case.  Appreciate everything that you do.

I was scared after I got a citation due to my foolish mistake.  I found Mr.  Hill's website and after some free phone consultations, I knew that he is genuine, cares for his clients and most of all I know that he will successfully defend my case.  He was very responsive to all of my emails and I am truly happy with the outcome.  Overall, I had a great and positive experience with him and his staff.  I cannot thank him enough. 

Again, Mr. Hill is someone you can trust in case you need a defense lawyer.  I highly recommend him."  B.L., Glendale

"Thank you to Mr. Hill and his staff for your help and patience with my case.  I saved money.  I am grateful."  H.C., Compton

"I spoke to Greg Hill about a legal malpractice case.  Even though we've never met, he was very helpful and gave me very practical and thoughtful advice.  And it was free!  I actually wish that his office was closer to us so that we could retain his services.  In my experience, I think Greg tries really hard to help people and I'd just like to thank him for kindly assisting us.  Thank you!" C.A., Davis, CA

"I called Greg Hill & Associates about a mistaken identity situation involving myself and my friend. A retail store manager in the mall had the audacity to accuse me and my friend of shoplifting from their store, which was totally false.  I explained to Greg that the video showed two people walking out of a store with a bag, but that it could not have been my friend because he was working at the time and had documentation to show this (an alibi).  Greg understood that this then meant I could not be there unless I had another friend with whom I shoplifted, which was not true.

Greg listened to me and my friend in separate phone calls and proposed a plan that offered a discounted legal fee if the case was not filed based on a letter he'd mail to the District Attorney demanding that my friend's alibi be recognized and therefore, neither he nor I could be prosecuted. 

Greg, myself and my friend brainstormed about also including, if necessary, a polygraph test, which Greg explained may not be admissible in court, but could have plea bargaining value and could even be just what was needed for a dismissal.

I appreciated Greg's creativity, enthusiasm and his willingness to financially accommodate us by not charging a full fee if he was successful in preventing the case from being filed.  He treated both me and my friend with respect and was patient in listening.  I highly recommend Greg Hill & Associates for their sense of urgency and not being just focused on earning their legal fees."  T.A., Rancho Palos Verdes

"Mr. Hill and his team did exactly what they were hired to do.  Mr. Hill appeared in court for me 5 times in the last year.  Each time he delivered the outcome he said he would try to achieve.  As a fellow veteran, I would not hesitate to put your case in Mr. Hill's hands.  Remember he is there to work for you and find the best solution between you and the law.  I am blessed to have had the case dismissed and behind me.  Keep up the great work!"  G.P., Colorado

"I interviewed at least 4 attorneys over the phone to handle a matter I needed assistance with.  Talking to several attorneys gave me an idea of what the options were, average rates and also insight into each one's knowledge on the matter. 

Greg contacted me right away and we reviewed the matter.  He was knowledgeable, gave me a good idea where we were heading and explained the risk in each strategy.  It was an easy decision to retain him.  That matter was handled exactly how we planned it.  A year later he contacted me to let me know that we could proceed with a final step to close out the matter and this was also successful.

I have contacted Greg a few times since our first communication about different matters and he was happy to help.  One call was for assistance with a potential new matter. Again, we reviewed the situation and possible outcomes and he helped me with this potential matter even before it actually materialized.  If a situation does unfold, he is ready to jump on it and handle it. Great guy.  I would recommend him and would use him again.

Thanks Greg!"  M. J., Gardena
