– Donnie T.

Al Hilado has been such a blessing for me. I am so impressed by the staff and his assistant, Melody. I had lost all hope dealing with a workers’ comp claim. I thought I would never get the much needed medical care I needed. I turned to him for help and he came through for me. He is such a pleasure to deal with. If you want someone to be compassionate to your needs and will fight for your rights. Al Hilado is the man you want to represent you.
