Hilliard Muñoz Gonzales LLP represents clients in mass torts, personal injury, product liability, commercial and business litigation, and wrongful death matters.
Mr. Hilliard’s cases have made headlines statewide and on the national level. His advocacy for victims of accidents caused by GM's defective ignition switch led to his appointment by Federal Judge Jesse Furman as co-lead counsel in the National GM Ignition Switch Litigation. This multi-district litigation is considered the single largest product liability litigation in US history. His representation of the parents of a Corpus Christi teenager who committed suicide due to extreme bullying at his high school focused a national spotlight on the menace of bullying in schools. He led the fight for justice for disabled residents of the Corpus Christi State School who were forced to take part in an infamous “fight club” for the amusement of some staff members.
