Fighting For The Underdogs In Commercial Property Tax Appeals

Don’t burn bridges in your property tax case – build them with alternative dispute resolution

Attorney Robert Hill brings 38 years of experience to create a solution that can save you millions and put power back in your hands

Settling difficult property tax disputes could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, and much more.

(Often the financial loss is just the start. I’ve seen these cases destroy relationships forever and even ruin someone’s health.)

But if you or your clients are getting trapped in expensive and time-consuming litigation, you can fix it before it gets out of control, take back your own destiny, and protect yourself from an unfair judgment.

Emerging factors, like technological advances, changes to the law, and evolving market trends, are causing a massive overvaluation of commercial real estate.

Owners then either have to pay an unfair tax or be forced into a costly and stressful legal dispute.

After 38 years in tax law, I could tell you horror stories about these kinds of cases ad nauseam.

But property tax disputes don’t have to implode into a time-consuming money pit.

At U.S. Property Tax Association, Inc., we believe mediation mends, while litigation ends property tax relationships.

Our goal as ADR specialists is to “mend relationships, not end them,” by employing mediation techniques designed to empower the parties to control the outcome of their property tax dispute(s) and resolve their differences collaboratively—not confrontationally.

38 years in the courtroom, 1000s of cases litigated, 100s of millions saved

You have a right to fast, fair resolution at a fraction of the cost of litigation.

My past clients include some of America’s largest brands across a variety of industries, and they’ve trusted me with $100s of millions at stake because I have a long, proven track record of reaching solutions where everyone wins.

Although courts have an obligation to apply equal justice to all, some courtrooms, unfortunately, are motivated by private or political agendas.

As a property tax attorney, I’ve taken hundreds of cases to trial – and won. 

I’m a certified mediator, and I know when and how to use ADR to bring disputes to a quick end.

What To Know About Alternative Dispute Resolution

Frequently asked questions about ADR

What is mediation?

In the mediation process, both parties and their property tax lawyers sit down with a neutral third party called a mediator. During the mediation sessions, the mediator facilitates discussions and helps the parties reach an agreeable resolution.

What is arbitration?

In arbitration, both parties and their attorneys appear before a neutral arbitrator. The arbitrator hears each side’s argument and issues a private, binding decision.

How ADR benefits all parties of a property tax dispute-

  • Less expensive than litigation
  • Keeps potentially embarrassing disputes private
  • Gives both parties more control over the outcome
  • Can quickly resolve the costly, stressful, and damaging dispute process.
  • Facilitates cooperation between parties.
  • Preserves important relationships.
