Title: Retired Lawyer

Judith Deegan Hill, Retired Lawyer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in criminal and trust legal matters.
The highlight of Ms. Hill’s career has been helping ordinary people during the time she owned her own practice. In this venture, she focused on criminal proceedings and was fortunate to help many people continue on with their lives. She believes her success is due to being available for her clients and being conscientious. Ms. Hill ran her private practice from 1989 to 1999, and continued to work for other attorneys until retiring fully in 2001. Prior to her own practice, she served as a deputy city attorney in the criminal division and an attorney in civil and criminal law with the Edward S. Coleman Professional Law Corporation. Ms. Hill garnered her legal experience as a deputy district attorney and criminal prosecutor with the Clark County District Attorney Office, as an attorney with Morse, Foley & Wadsworth Law Firm, as a senior trust administrator for the Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust and as a corporate attorney for the Fort Howard Paper Co.
Ms. Hill hadn’t originally planned to go into law and in fact spent the first few years of her career as a teacher. She taught in schools across Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin before becoming inspired by a book about John Adams’ life called Those Who Love. The book, detailing the Founding Father’s career as an itinerant lawyer, spoke to Ms. Hill. She had previously earned a Bachelor of Arts from Western Michigan University in 1960, and returned to her education to receive a JD from Marquette University in 1971. Furthermore, Ms. Hill became certified through the University of Paris in 1962, and completed postgraduate work at Harvard University in 1984.
