After learning of Attorney Hill's discipline by the Arkansas Bar, I researched and found that it was because he filed an appeal to the Arkansas Court of Appeals for his sister, when the guardian/conservator appointed by an Arkansas Probate Court had stolen money from his sister and no other person or entity would file an appeal from the appointment of the guardian, who was legally conflicted with the guardian appointed by the Arkansas Probate Court in 2009.
In all my dealings and business relationship with Donald Hill, I found him to be knowledgeable, always willing to see me and discuss my tax problems, even on short notice. It is my opinion that Mr. Hill should have been lauded by the Arkansas Bar for defending his sister when she had been abandoned by the appointed attorney ad litem appointed for his sister. The facts of Mr, Hill's conduct and his sister's case against the guardian appointed by the Arkansas Probate Court had previously been tried in Minnesota. Mr. Hill showed me a 32 page decision of a Minnesota Court which found no wrongdoing by Mr. Hill in defending his sister against her siblings who had stolen over $300,000 from his sister, then shortly thereafter, had her involuntarily and wrongly committed to a mental health institution as found by the Minnesota Court in 2014. The Arkansas discipline for Mr. Hill's filing of an appeal, took place in 2015, completely ignoring the prior Minnesota Court's rulings which just did not seem right as the Minnesota Court had found that Mr. Hill had championed his sister's case. I found Mr. Hill to be a fine person, an experienced and knowledgeable tax attorney. He listened to me and assisted in my business and tax planning saving my business and my family a significant amount of Tax dollars. Later in our business relationship, I found out that Attorney Hill had been providing free legal services for disabled American Veterans for more than 12 years, recovering education benefits for 30 of them residing overseas. In my opinion, Attorney Hill is a terrific attorney and someone I would highly recommend to others. I was shocked at the Arkansas Bar when I read that it had disciplined Mr. Hill for providing representation of the seemingly unlawful appointment of a person whom his sister was then suing to recover the $300,000 stolen from her.
