Alex Hilliard’s extensive experience in complex litigation on state and federal levels is a valuable asset for the firm and its clients. Alex was instrumental in the high-profile ignition-switch litigation against GM, representing injury victims and families of those killed in accidents caused by GM's defective ignition switch and their concealment of safety defects. This multi-district litigation is considered the single largest product liability litigation in US history.
Trial advocacy became a passion for Alex while he was earning his BA at The University of Texas at Austin and continued throughout his studies at St. Mary's School of Law, where he was selected for the Mock Trial team and graduated with honors. While pursuing his Juris Doctorate degree, Alex led the St. Mary's mock trial team to its first national championship at the William Daniel National Invitational Mock Trial Competition in Atlanta, Georgia. Alex also spent one summer with the study abroad program at the University of Innsbruck in Austria.
Alex honed his disciplined, tenacious work ethic as a varsity tennis player at the University of Texas at Austin, traits that he applies today in the courtroom and as a dedicated masters-level tennis player.
