“Al Hilado is the most knowledgeable, clever and discerning attorney I have ever talked to and had represent me in so many cases over so many years. I am so grateful to Al Hilado for years of advice, representation and now 18+ years later, a true friendship that has developed out of years of battles with my employer. Al has always made time for any concern, question, and has throughout these many years had my personal goals at the center of his mind in how each time he represented me in all my cases. Al has earned my complete trust through an outpouring of genuine concern for me as a person first, client second. I have and will continue to recommend Hilado Law to any and all I hear of struggling with worker’s comp injuries, employer conflicts regarding injuries, and retaliation as a result of an injury at work! Thank you so much, Bruce.
P.S. I have always appreciated your unique use of humor and sarcasm as you represented me so well!!”

V.M. – 6.23.2020
“I felt the need to take the time to share my experience with the Hilado Law group in hope that it will save others time that I had to spend learning about lawyers in general & this gentleman’s specific practice of workman’s comp law.
After being injured in an automobile accident while on the job, for the first time in my life I found myself having to seek legal counsel after the ridiculous settlement offers my case worker was trying to convince me of accepting, telling me that this amount was more than fair AND by hiring an attorney had no value because all they were going to do was take half the $ for doing what I could on my own…
That was my first clue that I really needed to at least sit down & talk with someone that understood my situation & the law.
I was referred by another attorney to a very well known, very accomplished, long time, local work comp lawyer that I will leave unnamed.
After sitting down with this gentleman, I almost immediately knew that this guy and I were not going to work together. He was brash, a little pushy and just took for granted I was going to hire him because he had been referred and by the time we were thru talking, I felt VERY uncomfortable and that I was just another number to him, basically what gives attorneys a bad name IMO… I was very dissatisfied and troubled with that whole experience.
So I asked around to try this this one more time with someone else and I am so thankful that I did!
When I met with Mr. Hilado I really had my guard up because I was kind of expecting the same but within the first half hour, I knew that everything bad that I had experienced previously was not who he was nor what he was about, he genuinely made me feel that I was his only client & that he sincerely was there to spend as much time with me that was needed to help ME, not just him & his practice.
I almost thought he was too good to be true but over time, he not only made a believer out of me that what he told me the first day on what all he & his firm would do for me “IF” I gave him the honor & opportunity was indeed, exactly what was promised!
Not only did he under sell me & over deliver, he went beyond & above. Many times I had a list of questions during this process & he always, 100% of the time responded to me and or had one of his very competent, professional staff let me know what was going on at all times.
In the end, to my amazement, & with all the challenges of Covid19 etc. he somehow scheduled a phone conference with the parties involved and ended up with a settlement that was more than 2 times the amount I was being offered and coerced to not waste $ on hiring an attorney…
Mr. Al Hilado is NOT the stereotype lawyer that sometimes gets a bad name. He not only renewed my confidence in hiring legal counsel, he proved that his clients REALLY mean a lot to him & that he is a man of his word.
I encourage anyone that may need an expert, caring, skilled & extremely friendly Attorney, but a pit bull when representing you and making damn sure there is no more $ left on the table from the other side, than don’t waste your valuable time searching out & interviewing multiple attorneys, you will not find better, smarter, professional legal representation than this gentleman & his amazing staff!
My sincere thank you to all of you at the Hilado Law group and I hope this review helps many others just the way you helped me!”

“Integrity, Skill and Compassion
After my claim for Social Security Disability was denied, I consulted with Al Hilado. Al suggested that I handle the paper appeal myself and if I was denied again to come back and see him. His rationale for this was that if my claim was awarded on appeal, that I would save on attorney fees. That’s integrity!
The claim was denied again and Al represented me in front of the Judge. A Judge that is notorious for being difficult to work with and having one of the highest denial rates in Central Florida. The time for my hearing came and went and Al sat right there with me waiting for hours. At last our turn came; however, the Judge spent most of the time talking and asking questions which left little time for Al to present my case facts. To make a long story short, the hearing was continued on another date months down the road. The Judge was hostile from the beginning. I was in tears, but Al presented the facts of my case in a calm and professional manner despite being treated rudely by the Judge. Al ultimately won the case and I was awarded Social Security Disability. That’s Skill!
I never felt like a client of Al’s. I immediately felt like a friend. I felt confident in my choice of attorney. Al showed concern not only about the case, but about my health and medical issues. He showed genuine concern about my family. That’s compassion.
As soon as Al took my case, I felt a huge burden lift from me because I knew he would handle my case with the same attention he would a family member. He kept me informed through the entire process. He explained things thoroughly. He is just a genuinely friendly down to earth family man. I actually looked forward to his calls and our meetings.
Al’s assistant, , is just as nice. She’s informed and highly skilled. All calls and emails were answered promptly. You can not make a better choice than Al Hilado. I feel like I have a friend for life.”
Teresa G. – 6.26.2019
“To: Al and
I just wanted to say thank you so very much. You handled my case with professionalism and efficiency, and I appreciate all you did for me. It was a very long haul, but you really came through for me in the end, just when I had about given up. Again, I cannot thank you enough.”
