Hunter MacDonald is an experienced litigator, acting as a strong advocate for his clients. With courtroom experience going back to 1993, Hunter has tried over 80 cases in various courts.
The majority of Hunter’s cases have been in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice, real estate, condemnations, construction, and land use. He also has experience in municipal law. He is a strong believer in broad local decision-making power and argued this theory of the law in a local case prohibiting marijuana retailing in 2014 in Fife.
Hunter’s interest in the law started at an early age. A creature of the library as a child, particularly the biography section, Hunter became a lawyer because many of America’s early leaders and heroes were lawyers.
With a belief that volunteers make a community come alive, Hunter is a member of the Fife Lions Club and encourages everyone he meets to volunteer their time for something they believe in.
In his free time, Hunter has an interest in military history, especially the Civil War. He enjoys traveling and has visited Civil War sites such as the Chickamauga, Lookout Mountain and Gettysburg battlefields. Beyond his U.S. travels, China is Hunter's favorite place to visit due to its blend of ancient and modern cultures.
