About Robert Hill Law

Property tax attorney Robert A. Hill works with a lean team of dedicated professionals who are capable of handling even the most complex type of property tax cases.

Over the last 20 years, Mr. Hill has established an extensive network of property tax and real estate experts throughout the United States. The Robert Hill Law team can expand to just the right size for every type of client. This means that your company gets the property tax talent it needs with no unnecessary overhead costs or legal fees. Since we work strictly on a contingency fee basis, there is no risk to you – only the reward that comes from a substantially reduced tax assessment in line with market principles.


In today’s economy, an accurate commercial property valuation is more important than ever before. While
many property values have decreased, tax appraisers’ assessments have been slow to reflect these changes.
The costs of an inaccurate assessment can be substantial and jeopardize the profitability of your business.

For over 20 years, attorney Robert A. Hill has helped reduce the property tax liabilities of a wide range
of businesses throughout Minnesota and Wisconsinas well as in Georgia, California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Ohio, South Dakota, Nebraska, Arizona, Iowa, and Colorado.

Mr. Hill’s property tax appeal services have helped save tens of millions for commercial and industrial
business owners, including Fortune 500 corporations, major manufacturers, hotels, and nationally-recognized
retail chains. He will fight relentlessly to ensure that your taxes accurately reflect the market value of
your real property and not the enterprise value of your business.

A Full-Service Property Tax Law Practice

As noted, Mr. Hill not only handles property tax cases across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and
the Upper Midwest, but also across states throughout the entire U.S. Mr. Hill works with a lean team of
experts to guide clients throughout the entire property tax appeals process including initial petitions,
negotiations with tax assessors, and taking cases to court when needed.

The team at Robert Hill Law is capable of handling even the most complicated types of property tax appeals.
Many companies mistakenly believe that they need a large law firm for a property tax issue. Even the
biggest law firms tend to only have a few property tax attorneys, and very few of these professionals can
match Robert Hill’s experience and know how. The firm’s motto says it best: “Property tax is all we do, and
we do it well.”

Regardless of what type of property you own or lease, Mr. Hill and his team of experts will thoroughly
research the market to identify the comparable value of your company’s property. He routinely partners with
major real estate and appraisal firms to obtain accurate data that will hold up under close scrutiny in
either direct negotiations with assessors or litigation.

The Smart Approach To Property Tax Appeals

Mr. Hill and his team are passionate about helping clients whose property taxes are in excess of their
property’s actual value. Their smart and energetic approach to property tax appeals has helped Robert Hill
Law establish a track record of precedent-setting results on behalf of a variety of prominent clients.

Mr. Hill’s numerous successful reported cases include Walgreen Co. v. City of Madison, which requires tax
assessors to assess real property at fair market value and not based on “atypical financing arrangements.”

In recognition of his work, in 2006 the national directory of attorneys at Martindale-Hubbell awarded Mr.
Hill its prestigious AV-Preeminent rating, indicating the highest levels of legal ability and ethical
standards: an award Mr. Hill has received ever since.

Mr. Hill accepts all types of industrial and commercial property tax cases, including cases involving
condo buildings, apartment buildings, office buildings, and manufacturing facilities.
