Alex Hilton III represents and counsels clients in a broad range of bankruptcy and tax matters, with consumer bankruptcy being his principal area of focus.
Having clerked with the firm for years, Alex is familiar with all manner of financial predicaments. Whether it be credit card debt, medical bills, tax levies, personal loans, or garnishments, Alex has assisted countless clients in obtaining a fresh financial start.
Though he earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, Alex began law school at Ave Maria School of Law, where he received a full-tuition scholarship as a Cardinal Newman Scholar. Finishing in the top 20% of his class, Alex earned a spot on the Ave Maria Law Review in addition to receiving a Cali award for scoring the highest grade in Moral Foundations of the Law – a course in St. Thomas Aquinas’s Treatise on Law.
As a second and third-year law student, Alex clerked for prominent civil rights firms. As a Summer Associate with the Thomas More Society in 2017, he drafted memoranda in the First Amendment and other constitutional areas. Clerking for the Pacific Legal Foundation in the summer of 2018, he vindicated the property rights of farmers for a public interest firm with twelve wins at the Supreme Court.
Alex enjoys wiping clear persons’ debts. For usury is an unnatural vice. And were it not for the protections afforded by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, honest debtors would remain enslaved to faceless, corporate creditors. See Proverbs 22:7 (“The borrower is slave to the lender”). See also Deuteronomy 23:19 (“Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother”).
Among his proudest civic engagements, Alex has served refugees with Catholic Charities for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. He and his wife Narmin make their home in Edmond with Catherine, their newborn daughter.
