THE MARTIN & HILLYER LAWYERS
PROVIDING YOU WITH THE LEGAL HELP YOU NEED
For over 45 years, the law firm of Martin & Hillyer Associates has served the legal needs of Burlington and the entire Halton Region with distinction and dedication. Founded in 1972 by Robert Martin and Bruce Hillyer as a “small town” law firm in Downtown Burlington, Martin & Hillyer has grown over the decades alongside the community it serves. Today we are one of the largest and most experienced law firms in the area, serving Burlington, Halton Region and beyond.
While both our firm and our community have grown a lot since our beginnings over 4 decades ago, our lawyers remain committed to providing the same personal and individualized service that only a local, community-oriented firm can offer.

MARTIN & HILLYER MEANS...
LOCAL EXPERTISE IN PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION
Most of our lawyers focus their practices on different areas of plaintiff personal injury law, including cases related to car accidents, falls and other personal injury claims, insurance & disability disputes and sexual assault litigation.
All of our civil litigation lawyers are proud and active members of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), a vital province-wide network of plaintiff lawyers promoting justice for injury victims. Bruce Hillyer was OTLA’s founding president, Laura Hillyer is OTLA’s current Vice President, and Claire Wilkinson is a recent past president of the organization.
Our lawyers are also active members of local bar associations in the Halton Region and in Hamilton, and have served as members, directors and leaders of a number of law associations, locally, nationally, and internationally, including the Halton County Law Association, the Hamilton Law Association, the Advocates’ Society, and the American Association for Justice.
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Having grown up alongside the City of Burlington, our firm also believes in giving back to the community that has sustained us for so long. We are proud to support a number of excellent local organizations that serve our community, from business organizations like the Downtown Burlington Business Association, to charitable causes, hospitals, and rehabilitation & injury support groups.
We are particularly proud to regularly sponsor and support the Brain Injury Association of Peel & Halton (BIAPH), Peel Halton Dufferin Acquired Brain Injury Services (PHDABIS), the Hamilton Brain Injury Association, the Hamilton General Hospital’s Legal Resource Room, and other excellent services and institutions that serve the local disability community.
