Passionate, experienced solicitors Meet the team at Hills

Hills Solicitors first opened its doors in September of 1894 under the name T A Hill. We continued strengthening our roots in the Maitland Community and later became T A Hill & Son, when our founders son joined the family practice. We then made the change to Hills Solicitors.

We have had a total of 3 offices since those early days in 1894, all of which are a 50m walk from our current office.
