Maxwell Hills is an experienced attorney, lawyer, and mediator specializing in family law. With a concentration on high net worth divorces, he has become one of the premier divorce lawyers in Orange County while maintaining an approachable demeanor and reasonable prices.
Maxwell’s passion for law dates back to his younger days, though he didn’t quite know that he would end up in the legal profession until later in life. As an aspiring musician in his teenage years, Maxwell showed his determination by starting his own business and teaching guitar lessons. By the time he was in college, he had professionally written several successful songs that were used on ESPN and on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.
Unfortunately, Maxwell soon learned about the negative side of the entertainment industry. Difficult contract negotiations didn’t go his way, and what might have been a burgeoning music career was ended prematurely. While many people would use that loss as a reason to sulk, Maxwell used it as motivation to get into the legal profession and become his own boss.
In addition to the education he gained about the music industry, Maxwell learned much about the world during his undergrad years at University of California Irvine. While earning his degree in Political Science with a focus on Global Political Economy, he also participated in the campus Law Forum and American Marketing Association.

These internships were excellent experiences for Maxwell, eventually helping him land a job with a small family law firm in Orange County.
