Al was a great attorney,he was extremely helpful. If I ever needed another Workers’ Comp attorney again, I would definitely hire Al. His assistant Melody was very helpful to when Al was out of the office or helping another client. These are great people they treated me like I was family.

Upon settlement of my case, I felt it was a fair settlement amount and that Mr. Hilado did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been smooth and as comfortable as possible. Every step along the way, which was a true long journey, I was kept informed of the progress, I could not have asked for more!
