Hilliard Martinez Gonzales LLP has been successfully representing clients in the United States and Mexico since 1986. Our experienced, tenacious legal team has earned a national and international reputation for taking on large, powerful, wealthy companies and bringing them to justice for causing personal injury or wrongful death. Our reputation is so well known that often a corporation will agree to a fair settlement rather than go to court against us.

If you or a loved one have been harmed by negligence, unsafe/defective products or a car or truck crash with a company vehicle, we can help you fight for rightful compensation. We will focus on you and your story, explaining your experience to the jury in a way that makes it clear to them what you have suffered and how the responsible party wronged you. We will apply this simple, powerful approach when advocating for you.

HMG is equally as experienced and successful with commercial and contract cases involving unfair business practices, including major class action lawsuits against national and international corporations.
