Winning trials by caring for our clients. Powerhouse lawyer Bob Hilliard talks with Jon Katz

Jon Katz

What do non-ego, blue jeans, and tireless work have to do with beating the prosecution? Join us as Fairfax, Northern Virginia, criminal and DUI lawyer Jonathan Katz talks in depth with Corpus Christi, Texas, trial lawyer Robert C. Hilliard, who was Jon's roommate at the Trial Lawyers College. https://hilliard-law.com

Early on, Bob inspired Jon to stay on the path of deeply caring for his clients, and to become his own boss. Bob's experience pursuing products liability cases against manufacturers served him well in achieving the ending of a multiyear vehicular homicide sentence for a defendant who asserted that his car's brakes did not work to avoid the fatal collision. Bob argued right up to the United States Supreme Court for the right to sue a United States Border Patrol agent for his cross-border fatal shooting of a teenager. Hernandez v. Mesa, 589 U.S. 93 (2000) (a 5-4 decision declining to permit such a cause of action for a cross-border shooting). Bob Hilliard pursues victory for his clients without ego, without airs, and with hard and smart work.

In this episode, we talk about being authentic and powerfully vulnerable, and about the connections we make with our loved ones, with each other and with jurors. We include discussing our late friend Dax Cowart, and Bob talks about how meaningful it is to have Dax's walking stick in his office. Jon and Bob have not seen each other in person for years, and here pick up where they last left off, as if it was yesterday.
