Hilliard Martinez Gonzales LLP
A Texas Law Firm With A National Reputation For Relentlessly Pursuing Justice!
Located in Corpus Christi, Texas, the Hilliard Martinez Gonzales LLP law firm offers exceptional legal counsel to a diverse range of clients dealing with serious and complex legal challenges that affect their lives and livelihood, their businesses and their futures.
Since we opened our doors in 1986, we have helped thousands of clients throughout Texas and Mexico protect their rights, interests and entitlements while working hard to ensure they obtain the maximum amount of compensation for the injuries and losses they incurred as the result of someone else's negligent, careless or unlawful actions.
Handling all types of personal injury and medical malpractice claims as well as other liability claims resulting from accidents caused by someone else, we have recovered tens of millions of dollars in settlements and awards on behalf of our plaintiff clients. Among our most notable successes, we secured a $25 million verdict for the victim of a workplace accident, which stands as one of the largest verdicts ever awarded in the state.
In addition, our attorneys advocate on behalf of business owners embroiled in complex commercial disputes as well as on behalf of employees dealing with serious work-related grievances, such as employer retaliation, whistleblower defense and other issues. Dedicated to protecting the rights of all we serve, we also provide a voice for those who suffered a violation of their basic civil rights in order to help them achieve the justice they deserve.
We have on our staff a team of some of the most highly rated attorneys in the country, several of whom hold certifications from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in personal injury trial law and civil trial law. Every lawyer on our team has extensive legal experience, and many have received numerous awards for their professionalism and service.
Through our combined efforts, we have helped establish Hilliard Martinez Gonzales LLP as one of the top legal practices in the region for injury and civil rights claims, and at our law firm several of our attorneys hold an AV-Preeminent* peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
