Fighting For The Underdogs In Commercial Property Tax Appeals

Don’t Burn Bridges – Build Them Using Alternative Dispute Resolution

Today, many valuation disputes over real estate and commercial properties revolve around whether remote work can lower their market value. Issues regarding eminent domain may also arise for commercial, residential and industrial properties. Rather than immediately pursuing litigation for your legal issues, our property tax attorney, Robert A. Hill, can advocate for your rights in alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

At Comprehensive Property Tax Services, he has earned a nationwide reputation for his skills in property tax dispute counsel. Based out of Wayzata, he represents clients throughout Minnesota and the United States. Through his mediation and arbitration services, he has helped clients resolve conflicts cost- and time-efficiently.

Why Hire Robert A. Hill?

Litigation can also sour relationships with taxing authorities, assessors and judges that you will need in the future. Although the court has an obligation to apply equal justice to all, some courtrooms, unfortunately, are motivated by private or political agendas. As a property tax attorney, Mr. Hill has taken hundreds of cases to trial – and won. However, this experience also gives him critical insight into when to use ADR and which form of it may best suit your dispute. He is currently earning his certification in mediation from the International Mediation Institute. He also frequently hires experts, such as The Counselors of Real Estate, to provide an outside view and ensure that all parties understand the situation at hand.

What To Know About Alternative Dispute Resolution

If you are wondering whether arbitration and mediation are optimal methods for resolving your dispute, you can take a look at some of our clients’ 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.

What is the appeal of ADR?

There are many benefits of mediation and arbitration. Some of the benefits include that they:

  • Are less expensive
  • Keep the matter private
  • Give parties more control over the outcome
  • Provide faster solutions
  • Facilitates cooperation between parties
  • Help maintain amicable professional relationships

Mr. Hall has seen firsthand how mediating or arbitrating legal disputes – even the most complex and contentious of them – can benefit all parties involved. If neither party reaches a fair agreement in mediation, then he can always turn to traditional litigation to pursue a favorable verdict.
