what our clients say
Integrity, Skill and Compassion
After my claim for Social Security Disability was denied, I consulted Al Hilado. Al suggested that I handle the paper appeal myself and if I was denied again to come back and see him. His rational for this was that if my claim was awarded on appeal, that I would save the 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 heist 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 attorneys. 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, Melody, 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 fell like I have a friend for life.
