About me

Mr. Hill's practice focuses on civil and criminal appeals, assisting the victims of financial elder abuse and investment fraud with recovering their losses, and litigating business and contract disputes, fraud and fiduciary duty issues, and wrongful termination, discrimination, intellectual property, and personal injury claims.  He has handled countless appeals and trials in the California appellate and state courts, as well as arbitrations before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, JAMS, Judicate West, and other forums in both California and New York.  Mr. Hill recently was recognized by Super Lawyers as a 2015 "San Diego Rising Star," an honor limited to only 2.5% of the attorneys in San Diego.  


Mr. Hill manages his own firm in downtown San Diego, where he provides the aggressive representation clients expect while charging lower fees than the larger firms in the area.  


Mr. Hill graduated as the #1 ranked student in his law school graduating class. After graduation he spent more than a year clerking for the Honorable Justice Ronald Parraguirre of the Nevada Supreme Court, where he gained invaluable insight regarding how judges view the cases and attorneys who appear before them.  He relies upon this insight to provide his clients with honest, effective, and practical legal advice.  He will tell a client if a case can be resolved in a cost-effective manner so the client can make an informed decision about how to proceed. At the same time, he can and will pursue a case through trial, and appeal if necessary, if doing so is in the client's best interest.


If you have a case or appeal that requires the services of a knowledgeable, honest, and aggressive attorney, please contact Mr. Hill to schedule a free in-person consultation.
