A traffic stop resulted in a client being charged with improper handling of a loaded firearm and misuse of a firearm while intoxicated – charges that would jeopardize his ability to have a concealed carry permit. After identifying constitutional issues with the stop, the client pled to a single charge of disorderly conduct, which had no effect on his gun rights.

He is always there to answer any questions and give advice. That’s huge when you’re going through something serious and you’re anxious. Lauren helped me with my recent case and got it reduced! She is a wonderful young lady and I’m lucky I had her help. Max and his team will help you get through anything. I will always trust him and if anyone I know needs help I always recommend him! Thank you so much for everything."

"My experience with Max Hiltner saved my life. I had prior violent cases, not to mention all my cases had the influence of alcohol. My last case, I hired Max...

I felt like he cared about me, and I was right, because Max Hiltner fought for my freedom. His outstanding fight allowed me to be free and live my life on the right path. I recommend him to everyone!!"
