Attorney Marlon A. Hill's Jamaican roots give perspective on interconnected economics of South Florida and Caribbean
Charged with a passion for culture and relationship building, Jamaican-born attorney Marlon Hill integrates both into his professional and civic endeavors.
Co-founding partner of downtown Miami law firm delancyhill, Mr. Hill aims to fill a niche serving entrepreneurs and small- to medium-sized businesses and hopes to team up with other local law firms to leverage opportunities. With the bulk of the firm's clients being Caribbean-American, Mr. Hill keeps his finger on the pulse of the Caribbean economy "because ultimately the business and economic decisions that are made in those countries will impact South Florida's business environment," he says.
Mr. Hill, a past president of the Caribbean Bar Association, serves on the board of the Florida Association for Voluntary Action in the Caribbean and the Americas. Locally, he helps to shape city infrastructure as a member of the Miami Parking Authority board — which also plays a role in fortifying the local business climate, he says. "If there is not accessible, affordable parking, folks can't go to shop, to eat, to visit their law firm. It plays an integral role in growing the urban core for any city."
Mr. Hill was interviewed in his downtown office by Miami Today staff writer Risa Polansky.
