Robert Hill

I was never one of those kids who knew from grade school what he wanted to be when he grew up. I knew I liked helping people, and I knew I admired superheroes for fighting to protecting others from injustice. But hey, what kid didn’t?

When it was time to pick a major in college, I decided to let one of my many interests guide me — engineering. I breezed through my classes in North Dakota and was happy with my choice in degree. Still, I wondered if I should explore my options further and decided to talk it over with one of my professors. After our conversation, that professor suggested I try out a pre-law class about supreme court justices and the decisions they make. I ended up liking the class so much that I decided to pursue the interest further. So I got my degree in engineering then went on to the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego.

The Big Firm Lifestyle

During law school, I began working at a nearby law firm. In 2005, I got my Juris Doctor, joined that practice full time, and began working my way up toward the position of junior partner. By the time I had reached that role, though, I realized it was time for me to move on and start my own firm. Despite the invaluable experience I gained there, I knew I could provide better service to my clients by offering them more personalized attention. That’s ultimately why I struck out and established the Law Offices of Robert L. Hill, APC.

I wasn’t born into a family of lawyers. I just liked the idea of fighting for others and getting justice. I couldn’t be Superman, so I became an attorney.


Working Toward a Resolution

Today, when clients come to me, they’re in difficult, extremely stressful situations. Often, they owe a lot of money or are trying to collect the money that is owed to them. Sometimes they’re trying to get compensated for an injury that was caused by another person. Sometimes they need help negotiating the terms of an agreement. And sometimes they’re facing a more complex matter, such as holding their business partner accountable for embezzlement or some other wrongdoing.

Whatever the case may be, I work hard to help my clients find the best resolution to their situation. That means determining how to negotiate, whether to get aggressive with their case, and where I can save them from further financial strain. The work isn’t easy, but on the days when I get to tell a client good news, it’s all worth it.

More than Just an Attorney

A good attorney will do their due diligence when it comes to representing a client. They will closely examine their case, decide how best to proceed, and see the matter through from start to finish. Part of the reason I established my law firm is so that I could be more for my clients than just a “good” attorney. I want them to know that they can call me anytime a concern arises, that they can ask questions, and that I genuinely care about them. As my firm continues to grow, I will be very selective in choosing staff who share the same ideals.
