I have known Hilary for many years, beginning when she was a prosecutor in the Bronx and I was working at The Bronx Defenders. She was the prosecutor assigned to a few of my cases over the years and I always found her to be extremely knowledgeable and always prepared. Her relationships, especially within the Bronx courts (judges, adversaries, former colleagues in the DA's office), run deep. Those relationships, as much as any legal knowledge, are critical to fighting for a client. Bottom line, she's a great attorney.

I hired Hilary to handle my criminal case in the Bronx and would recommend her to anyone. As a former prosecutor, she knew what to expect from the DA's Office and how to handle herself in court. Hilary got me the best plea deal and kept me out of jail
