I am in the process of obtaining Mr. Hilliard to file my case. I can tell you that during my consultation with him he was very warm, compassionate and understanding with my family’s situation. He was honest and upfront he answered all my questions and explained to me the bankruptcy process. If you want a fair honest banker attorney that will look out for your family’s best interest call Mr. Hilliard.

Mr. Hillier guided us expertly through a very stressful process.

Mr. Hillier helped us through the most stressful, uncomfortable, and embarrassing situation we have ever found ourselves in the midst of. He made us feel human in a very dehumanizing legal process. He is professional, knowledgeable, expedient, keenly able to get to the crux of things, and employs a refreshing sense of humor when appropriate. His assistant Idele is pleasant, capable and responded swiftly in all matters. I would recommend Mr. Hillier to anyone who finds themselves in the position of needing an attorney with the utmost experience in consumer and business bankruptcy law.

Knowledgeable, Sensitive and Understanding.

After relocating back to NC and Asheville, David R. Hillier was recommended by my family's Attorney in Eastern NC. With that recommendation and further research, I discovered that David has a stellar history of providing successful legal advice and quite the impressive reputation throughout the state of North Carolina. Within five minutes of our initial meeting, I knew I had made the right choice. Bankruptcy was not even a consideration for me in the initial search for a lawyer. He is a no-nonsense individual with a direct and honest demeanor. His wicked sense of humor, when appropriate, has made the entire process less painful than I could have ever imagined. Along with his Assistant, I have repeatedly been treated with kind and respectful interactions and any concerns or questions that I might have had, were always answered promptly and in verbiage that even I could comprehend!
Words can not begin to express my full and sincere appreciation for his wealth of knowledge, incredible patience and trust. I will not hesitate to recommend David and his staff to close friends and family. Thank you, David.

Genuine Concern About How To Pursue A Quality Life After Bankruptcy

Currently, my wife and I are going through Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. This is the first time we have ever been in such financial distress. It has been a very stressful and frustrating time in our life. Mr. Hillier was recommended to us, so we met with him and I'm glad we did. Not only is he and his assistant very professional and knowledgeable about the legal aspects of bankruptcy, but they have a genuine concern about how to pursue a quality life after bankruptcy. Their guidance has been very helpful and reassuring while getting us through a tough time.

Review of David Hillier's services

David was excellent and very personable and friendly. I've already recommended his services to two of my friends who are struggling, and who, like me, could not be helped by OnTrack. My whole legal process went very smoothly, and I had no problems at all. I would give David and his office the highest recommendation possible.

Outstanding representation!

David and his staff continue to verify that I made the correct choice when faced with bankruptcy earlier this year. He has continued to provide the same sincere advice and support after the discharge as he did from our initial meeting. His attention to even the smallest detail throughout the entire process was truly amazing. As I begin this new chapter in my life, I can't find the words to express how much I appreciate all that David and his staff have done, not just for myself, but for my family also. The observation that I can't find the words, would certainly surprise David!
I would unconditionally recommend his services to family and friends. Thank you, David.

Filing bankruptcy is something I never thought I would have to do. Dave was thorough, direct and always very professional. While he also understands the emotional stressors of the process, he made me feel reassured and he always had my best interest. At times, throughout the process, I felt like he was a trusted friend and not just my lawyer. He is highly intelligent and extremely gifted bankruptcy lawyer. He knows just what to do and can be trusted. It was especially noticeable in the courtroom that he is well respected among his piers and also the judges. I have referred friends and clients of my own to him and will continue to do so.

Great Attorney who took excellent care

David Hillier and his assistant, Idelle Davids, took wonderful care of me and my husband. They made us feel comfortable, explained everything and were very timely in their response. We had extreme confidence in David that he was handling our case appropriately. He took such good care of us that we have now brought a relative to him to use his services. Once again David and Idelle did not let us down. They have taken great care once again to ensure that all is taken care of. I would highly recommend David Hillier.

Experienced and Professional

Mr. Hillier is the most professional, thorough, experienced, and considerately helpful attorney one can find in western NC. He took my case with its numerous complications, eliminated my anxiety about the issues, and successfully navigated the legal complexities with integrity, forthrightness, and confidence. His straightforward manner, knowledge of the law and of the local system, and calming influence are characteristics which come only from the many years of successful law practice and genuine love for the profession that Mr. Hillier demonstrated to me in every contact I had with him or his staff. I could not more highly recommend him.

He also made me feel at ease with the meetings and process.

Scared to death on day of the trial but Attorney Hillier was there an assured me all was fine...and guess what? All was fine and it wasn't but 10 maybe 15 minutes. He and Mrs. Davids are the BEST! Thank you so much for helping me get my life back.

Impeccable guidance

David's guidance and assistance has been impeccable. We find his advice to be sound and the information he has given to us has proven to be spot on. We did not feel rushed and he took time to explain all the different scenarios and their various consequences. His "bedside manner" makes his client feel comfortable and he has a great sense of humor to boot. Though we certainly hope we won't need his services again, if for any reason we did, we would seek his guidance above anybody else. We strongly recommend Mr. Hillier to anyone in need, regardless of the circumstances.

Here's to an EXCEPTIONAL attorney and all around good person.

I was confronted with the issue of bankruptcy at a time in my life I no longer believed it would affect me. Dave had represented me many years ago, and was as thorough as one could be. This time around, I had many "other factors" that coincided with this decision to file, and of course, there was NO doubt who I would hire as my attorney. I went to him, took maybe 20 minutes, and he made me feel not only that I was doing the only thing I could, but that I had not failed as a human being. He is point blank, concise, informative, and above all, an awesome human being. He is not your typical "suit and tie" attorney, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing an attorney for such matters. He is above and beyond. Call Dave Hillier if you want the job done, and walk away still feeling as if you can hold your head high. Thank you, Dave.

Changed My Life

I was trapped in an incredibly suffocating situation that I was pretty sure I would have to try and somehow maintain for the rest of my life. I had resigned myself to a life of barely treading water because I had no idea there was another option. I am eternally grateful to my local debt counselor for recommending David to me. After speaking with him for maybe 5 minutes to explain my situation, he immediately jumped in and told me how he was going to change the rest of my life, and that it would be EASY. It was true, and then some. Every time we met, he offered a lightness and humor that made the nasty dark cloud of debt dissolve. Everything was explained simply and directly for each action I needed to take. His assistant, Idelle, was just as available and easy to communicate with, making the whole process painless. Even on my court day, you could hear him laughing before he entered the room. As he called his clients back to have a short briefing, we each exchanged little stories about how great he made us all feel and how easy it was for all of us. He continued to share his lightness back in the courtroom. You could feel the tension slide out of the room as he bantered with the judge. There was even a couple behind me that I overheard whisper that they wished their attorney was anything like him.

I am grateful to have had luck on my side when being introduced to David. While I hope to never NEED to see him again, if anyone I know ever gets in my situation, he is the only attorney I will recommend.

There is no need to look anywhere else!

My husband and I had no idea what we were getting into with filing bankruptcy, and were quite nervous about finding a reputable attorney to assist us with our financial difficulties. Mr. Hillier (Dave) was very professional in his evaluation of our situation. He did not make us feel embarrassed, ashamed or even ignorant in our struggles; instead, months of financial stress and burdens were alleviated just by having a consultation with him. Once we hired Dave, he was able to take our financial matters in his hands and give us reliable, proper legal advice. I could rest easy at night knowing that Dave had our best interest at hand. Dave and his assistant were always friendly and very quick to reply to emails or phone calls with concerns. I never felt rushed when I had questions for Dave, as he always made sure he took the time to answer my questions thoroughly and ensured that I wasn’t confused about the bankruptcy process and how it related to my specific situation. No question was ever a “dumb” question for Dave. His office is conveniently located in downtown Asheville and is very private for discussing financial matters. His rates are very reasonable and affordable. I highly recommend hiring Dave Hillier for your debt and bankruptcy needs.
