About me:

William “Bill” Hiltz

I truly enjoy helping my clients resolve their most pressing and complex business problems.

I have extensive knowledge and experience in science, business, engineering, information technology and digital forensics.

During my career, I have performed and managed hundreds of fraud investigations and helped dozens of dental professionals involved in mediation, civil litigation and arbitration matters.
