McGowan-Grant urged Hiles to continually seek ways to give back to society and to use the law to help those in need who may not be able to afford legal services. Hiles extended thanks to Justice George for hearing her petition and to McGowan-Grant for presenting it. She also thanked the Partners of CAA, Courtney Abel and Eustella Fontaine for making her an associate of their firm.
