About me

As a member of Hinkle Elkouri’s trusts and estates practice group, Mr. Gill uses his extensive experience in business and tax matters to lead the probate and trust administration needs of the group. He is primarily responsible for guardianships and conservatorships, disability planning, post-mortem tax planning, and marital agreements. He also assists clients with estate planning, asset protection, business entity formation, and business succession planning.

While a student at the University of Kansas and the University of Kansas School of Law, Hugh was the recipient of a number of awards, including the Payne & Jones Award and the Wall Street Journal Award for the top M.B.A. student in finance. Today, he frequently lectures on estate planning and estate administration topics. He has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America and Kansas/Missouri Super Lawyers.

    I have been sending my clients to Hugh for over 20 years for their estate planning and probate needs. He is on the cutting edge of his practice area and quite knowledgeable in all aspects of probate and estate planning. He is able to communicate that knowledge to clients and apply it to their factual scenario in a practical way. Hugh is also a kind and good person and I am grateful to have someone like him to help my clients plan the next stages in their lives.
