Helping Writers, Musicians and Artists

It isn’t easy being creative. That idea for the new novel or refrain for a new song that hits in the middle of the night, the sculpture that never seems to be finished, or the twenty paintings you need to get done and framed in time for clients to pick up for holiday presents -- who has time to deal with the business end of it all? As a musician and published nonfiction, fiction author and poet, Attorney Hill is well aware of the problem. Although legal services cost money, they are a worthwhile investment in your artistic vision. Getting your copyrights registered, forming an LLC or making sure your will includes provision for transferring your intellectual property interests helps protect the value of your creativity. Let Hill Attorney PLLC help you out with that -- so you can get back to the drawing board.

Serving Towns, Non-Profits and Neighbors

Change can be a good thing. But development that damages our natural environment and cultural resources, or diminishes the quality of life and property values of neighbors, deserves a hard look. All too often, harmful development is approved without thoughtful review unless neighbors, non-profits or municipalities get substantively involved in local, state and federal proceedings.  Hill Attorney PLLC can held ensure your voice is heard.
