Amazing attorney, great staff, highly skilled. Worth every penny. Seriously.
I consulted with Mr. Hill back in May due to my spouse leaving the state and taking my children. From DAY 1, Mr. Hill's expertise and abilities were paramount. He gave me the legal advice I needed. I am happy to say I currently have joint custody of my children as a dad in the state of Georgia. Not only is Vic an amazing attorney, he has a fantastic staff to support his efforts. I have a bit further to go before I am to my final decree, but I am confident we will have a favorable outcome. If the motions, orders, and negotiations we have had so far are any reflection of what is to come, the sky is the limit. One more thing worth mentioning, I called and made an appointment because I needed to file for divorce immediately. His staff squeezed me in and I was able to get a filing in the very same day. In hindsight that is simply just amazing. I think something bigger than me led me to finding Vic. I wish him all the best in years to come... They have been fantastic in their knowledge of dealing with my ex and women like her. Unfortunately in many cases dads have it very tough. If you are on the fence, please reach out to Mr. Hill. He is a fantastic attorney.

Excellent Advice and Effectiveness in a difficult and complex divorce
Vic Hill has been very knowledgeable, understanding and effective. With my divorce case being multifaceted and way over my head, I had a lot of questions and many concerns. His ability to guide me through this process and avoid potential pitfalls has really helped me. He makes judicious use of time to maximize the work output for me, and his staff is very conscientious. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone going through a divorce and have already done so myself.

Excellence
This was the first time in my life I needed any kind of legal help. After a consultation with Vic, the decision to move forward him and his staff was easy. He got me through a very tough time. Between the legal maneuverings, Vic and his staff also comforted me emotionally when necessary. The outcome was pleasing and exactly what Vic said would happen. I highly recommend Hill MacDonald.

Cleaned up a big divorce mess
Thanks to some bad decisions on my part, and bad advice from my former lawyer, I had gotten myself into a pretty deep hole in my divorce. I hired Vic to help dig me out of that hole, and he did a great job. It took a while (which probably says more about how deep the hole was than anything else), but ultimately we prevailed - with the help of Vic and a couple of expert witnesses he recommended, the judge saw through all my ex's BS, and I ended up with a very favorable result. I hope I never go through another divorce - but if I do, I'm going to hire Vic first instead of wasting time and money on someone else.

Personable Professional
Vic Hill has restored my faith in Attorneys and people in general. He is personable, reliable and professional. He has been by my side, defending me in a very stressful and unpredictable situation against a very unethical person. He has listened to all my concerns and addressed them with knowledge and wisdom and care. He is the example of a lawyer who chose his profession for the right reasons, to make sure justice is sought. His humor and energy certainly make a stressful situation much more comfortable. The whole staff at Hill Macdonald Law Firm is fabulous, Betsy, Jessica, Brandy, Brad and Vic are welcoming, responsive and caring. I couldnt say enough about my satisfaction in hiring Vic Brown Hill.

An Excellent Family Law Attorney
I have met many attorneys and by far would and have recommend Mr. Hill for family law needs. I have had Mr. Hill handle an appeal which we prevailed and various other task for the well-being of my son. Not once have I ever been disappointed in his work and results he produced in my cases. He is well experienced in what he is doing, will work as hard as possible for you, and has a well rounded view of your situation to come up with the best solution. His ethics are very high and he is not here to take your money but to help you in every way possible. His creative thinking and wisdom of the law brings solutions that are practical, bringing about the best situation possible for you and your family. I have trusted Mr. Hill with the most precious and valuable person in my life, my son. And if the need ever rises again I will absolutely be using him again. Much thanks from a very grateful client

A 10 lawyer who deserves a 12!!!!!!
My trial lawyer is Alyson and she has been wonderful getting things done every step of the way in my terrible case of my creepy husband stopping my alimony and levying frivelous suits on me when I have cancer. Now I needed an appeals lawyer because Alyson does not do appeals and highly recommended Vic Brown Hill in Marietta, Ga. He is wonderful. He is personable and very effective. He wrote a brief that was at least 40 pages long and he mentioned everything that went on in my case as if he were involved from the beginning. The brief was for a frivelous lawsuit my ex levied against me for bad service and the wrong court for my case. This went to the supreme court and was dismissed within 2 weeks. Vic explained how the appeal works and even his paralegals and assistants were wonderful to work with. I just got the call that my ex's case was dismissed and I was awarded another $2500 because of the frivelous nature of his suit because the judges in supreme court said these problems he had were not valid. Vic calls when he says he will and called twice when I was out to tell me the good news and I screamed so loud his hearing must now be impaired. Vics next step is to get this clown into jail in Cincinnati where he ran to in the middle of the night to avoid paying me.This is all because of my wonderful lawyers and why they both have a 10 superb rating. They deserve a 12!!!!! Edyth

Gets the Job Done
Mr. Hill represented me in a divorce and custody action. My case had the potential to be long and bitter. Mr. Hill managed to resolve my case for what I wanted, and keep the situation from becoming a battle. I would hire Mr. Hill again.

Superb service and Expertise!
Mr. Hill was a superb representative for my family. He was exceptionally versed in the particulars of our case, served as a strong advocate for our point of view, and was able to garner a favorable settlement. Without Mr. Hill's help our family would be in dire straits. He and his staff are true professionals in every sense of the word. They respond quickly to requests and ensured that we were represented with a high level of efficiency and effectiveness.

When everything depends on your attorney...
My future depended on the competence & skill of my attorney Vic Hill. I had a very complicated divorce case that Vic took on with great confidence. He not only had to deal with cleaning up a huge mess created by my former attorney that could have potentially destroyed my financial future, he also had to deal with opposing counsel filing Motions against me left and right. The largest was to have my entire Settlement Agreement overturned due to mistakes made as far back as the beginning of my divorce. If not for his knowledge and great skill, I would have lost everything due to technicalities. There were many times that the stress was more than I could bare and Vic would always put me at ease. Vic won in Superior Court & just when things seemed to settle down and I could finally take a breath the unthinkable happened, opposing counsel filed with the Georgia Supreme Court to over turn my Settlement Agreement. This was no easy task, but again Vic went to work and blew them out off the water and once again we conquered! There are so many issues over these last several years that have arisen & every single time Vic solved every one of them to my satisfaction. That in itself is an accomplishment, as I will be the first to admit, I am not easy to please at times... I will always recommend Vic to anyone in need of a great attorney!

Superb family law attorney
Vic handled my divorce as a result of my previous attorney dying during the progess of the case. Vic took over smoothly and during the course of the case handled it much better than I believe the previous attorney could have done. In fact, the previous attorney had made a procedural error which was unexpectedly thrown upon Vic at a hearing. Vic was given the lunch break to respond and he did so with wonderful expertise and won his point. I cannot begin to state how highly I regard Vic and his expert professionalism in his role of a family law attorney. I recommend him to the utmost degree for anyone looking for an atorney to represent them during their divorce or any family law area problem.

very pleased
i am very greatfull for all Mr Hill and his staff have done and are doing in my case.. its stressing enough to have to go through a divorce and more so when there is a child ... He has done everything he has set out to do and more in this case, i am very pleased

Above and beyond the call of duty.....
Having interviewed several attorneys, I chose Vic because of his ability to communicate clearly and compassionately, his reputation for being appropriately aggressive if necessary and his ability, as demonstrated during the initial interview, to quickly grasp the essence of very complicated case. Throughout the process the opposing attorney stooped to many unnecessary written and verbal attacks. Vic moved forward maintaining a high level of integrity without attacking the other side by focusing on the salient issues and dealing with them in appropriate legal formats. I admire his approach both personally and professionally. Throughout the process Vic and his staff were personable, knowledgeable and encouraging, consistently a pleasure to work with. Finally, the outcome of my case was significantly better than anticipated. For these reasons, and many more, I highly recommend Vic Hill as an outstanding attorney.

He saved me
I retained Vic as my ex-wife was trying to reclaim monies she felt I owed her due to the divorce decree. I had paid my ex-wife what I had owed through the years, but didn't have all of the cancelled checks from the beginning of our divorce which was 12 years earlier. My ex-wife felt that she had a case when I wasn't able to produce those few cancelled checks that I couldn't find. Needless to say, Vic was excellent in not only dealing with the opposing lawyer and my ex-wife, he was very creative in making sure I didn't end up double-paying my ex with inflated fines and possibly serve time in jail. I have recommended him many times and would still. I am thankful to have found Vic and feel confident that if I need his services again, I wouldn't hesitate to contact him.

Worse Attorney I've Ever Hired - IMO DO NOT HIRE HIM
Ref Cobb County Civil Case Civil Case Number: 12106521. Vic deferred our first in person meeting until right before the emergency hearing for divorce before Judge Stoddard (I heard later (hearsay) from other attorneys Vic had a negative history with Stoddard that I only learned after) - yes this is hearsay but I totally believe it after what watching Stoddard's interaction with Vic in court. In my opinion Vic's ineptitude cost me over $50K ( Ref the amended Temp Order Mar 7, 2013). READ ALL MY CASE PLEADINGS - IMO VIC TOTALLY FKD UP BY NOT TAKING PLAINTIFF''S INITIAL COMPLAINT SERIOUSLY.

Poor Choice equals Poor Legal Advice
This was a poor choice on my part. I truly thought Mr. Hill would achieve a few of my goals but absolutely none were accomplished. Thousands of dollars wasted, the case nearly went to trial and the lack of preparedness or forthrightness forced me to concede on all points: custody, visitation, support and possessions, all was lost.

Response from Vic Hill November 22, 2016
At Hill-Macdonald, we strive to obtain a good result for every client within the framework of the facts in the client's case. We cannot assess this review because the facts set forth do not match any of our client profiles. Our records do not contain a record that matches the result described.
Posted by anonymous | August 2, 2014
Bad bad bad choice
11 months-11K with nothing accomplished Bad choice on my part-I fell for his confident sales pitch then he couldn't handle the complications or the extremely experienced opposing counsel in my divorce/child custody case.
Response from Vic Hill August 8, 2014
Hill-Macdonald always strives to provide appropriate representation to our clients. Rules of professional conduct forbid our disclosing facts about cases. Sometimes circumstances make it impossible to achieve a result that pleases a client.
