We came to Michael Hill with a very complicated issue after a loved one died. He navigated my family through the process of recovery and helped us move on with our lives. He was always responsive and usually contacted my family with updates long before we had any questions. I highly recommend Michael Hill and his law firm.

Attorney Hill was patient, understanding and caring with my family through a very difficult ordeal. He listened and made himself available no matter the day or time. He was compassionate and really took the time to get to know my family and who our beloved one was. He is excellent at what he does and is highly recommended.

Michael level set expectations expectations immediately, on a complicated single car accident that took the life of my 20 year old son.
He listened sympatheticky, and experly as I explained what I knew of the painful details.
He took these details, and dug deep to get answers and access liability.
When it appeared the liability was my son's, he graciously and honestly addressed that with me with the sensitivity of a friend.
I would without a doubt contact and trust Michael for any liability, wrongful death case.
William Eadie, Nursing home abuse and neglect Attorney
Michael Hill is the kind of medical malpractice attorney who not only does an amazing job building a legal case and presenting a case to a jury, but also getting to know, understand, and support his clients. I've heard clients referred to Michael as "family" many times. He spends so much time and energy making sure clients are confident and prepared at every stage of a case that I consider him an example for other lawyers to live up to. I learn from him in every case we work on together.
