Your Tigard Attorney

Attorney Tigard

Sometimes hiring a lawyer can seem like a daunting task.  A quick Google search for “Lawyer Tigard” results in a long list of lawyers in the area. From here, we recommend that you look at reviews to see what past clients have to say about the services they received, their result and their overall experience.  The important thing to consider is the general tone and trend of the reviews.  For example, a negative review here or there doesn’t necessarily paint a complete picture for numerous reasons, such as a disgruntled client that had unrealistic expectations for their case.  If the majority of the reviews are positive then you can proceed to the next step of contacting and meeting with the attorney to determine if it is the right fit for you.  For a free consultation, contact Ryan Hilts.

Making a Claim

Tigard LawyerIt is important to report an accident and make a claim as soon as it happens. There are statutes of limitations which make claims void after a certain amount of time. You can contact an attorney in Tigard, Or to ensure that you meet all such deadlines and to make the process easier for you.

Establishing Negligence

Accidents occur all the time. There are times, however, when an accident may seem as if one person was at fault. Sometimes it will be clear which party is at fault, whereas other times it is not as clear-cut. The earlier a claim is made, the easier it will be to contact witnesses and/or discover video footage of the accident. As time goes by, it is common for the facts to become distorted in our minds, a fact which can affect witnesses and all parties involved. If two people have conflicting stories it can make it difficult to
establish liability.  For this reason, it is strongly recommended to speak with a personal injury attorney in the Portland area soon after the accident.

I was involved in a personal accident case where the insurance company denied responsibility for nearly two years and we eventually had to go to trial. Ryan helped me through the whole process, answering my questions and keeping me informed as to what was next in the process. My first recommendation is to never get involved in an accident but if you are and an insurance company is trying to treat you unfairly, contact Ryan and he will make sure you’re informed about your rights and your best course of action.  Can’t imagine where I’d be in this process without his expertise. Thanks again Ryan.


I was recommended to Mr. Hilts by a friend when I had my car accident. I was very impressed with his knowledge and the way he guided me through the process. I appreciated that he always returned my calls and kept me informed about the progress of my case.


I could never say enough good things about Ryan. He was always there to take my calls and answer all of my questions. I really felt like he was working for me; like I was his top priority.


Ryan is a terrific lawyer and a better person. He went above and beyond to reach a settlement in my case and believed in it when no one else did. He’s very intelligent and caring and is always putting the best interests of his clients before his own. Ryan knew more about my case than I even did. He is truly dedicated to his clients, and I can not explain how much I honestly appreciated that. I recommend that you give him a shot if you need to hire an attorney. He won’t let you down.
