Hilton frequently represents local businesses (for-profit and non-profit), contractors and home owners in various areas of contract negotiation and litigation. Preston has considerable experience prosecuting and defending claims for breach of contract, fraud, unfair and deceptive trade practices and breach of fiduciary duty in both District and Superior Court.
Additionally, Preston has vast experience in criminal defense. Preston represents clients charged with all misdemeanors and felonies. Preston has tried numerous cases before both judge and jury. Presently, Preston is the assigned defense attorney for Brunswick County Treatment Courts, working closely with the Brunswick County Senior Resident Superior Court Judge, Hon. Ola M.
