Saved us from real disaster
Simply exceptional! Emma Hilton as been our estate planning attorney since 2016. Initially she took the time to guide us through the process, and thanks to her a very complicated plan became clear and very understandable to us. That was great! But Emma surpassed every expectations at the beginning of 2022 when we asked for advice on a very sensitive family matter. she was honest, professional, direct but caring and with a compassionate sense of urgency. In short she saved us from a disaster we were not willing to see. Needless to say she will be our trusted advisor for ever. She rocks.

Extremely Capable Lawyer
Emma is an energetic, knowledgeable, and very capable colleague. She excels in the areas of bankruptcy, tax, and estate planning. Whenever I have a question concerning any of those practice areas, for which I do not readily have an answer, Emma is the first call I make. In fact, Emma has represented me in a variety of matters, and I have always been satisfied with the result.

A great Tax/Estate planning attorney
Emma has been our tax strategy and estate attorney for almost 5 years. As the other descriptions attest, Emma immediately sets you at ease, helping you understand the process and getting back the sense of control over things. When you need a tax lawyer, you NEED a tax lawyer - someone who has been there, and has a deep reservoir of knowledge. You can see clearly, Emma fully understands the workings of the IRS and helps you understand every step of the way. Emma also structured all of our estate planning, asking comprehensive, thoughtful questions along the way. We also have her do our taxes every year. We cannot recommend her enough.

A lawyer
Emma came highly recommended from a colleague at work over 5 years ago. At that time, I was being audited by the IRS, and was terrified on how to handle it. During that first appointment, Emma put my wife and I at ease and said "Don't worry, I got this." And she did! Emma handled every aspect of the audit, kept us in the loop every step of the way, and quickly resolved our issue. Since then, Emma has done our taxes each and every year, prepared our will and estate planning, set up power of attorneys for each of our 3 kids when they went away to college, and helped is handle out of state traffic violations. She is like your best childhood friend that you can always rely on to give you the support you need, when you need it. I often call her up and as for guidance on just to talk though something I have in mind for retirement and how it would impact my tax situation. For anyone reading this review, I can tell you first hand that Emma is the person to trust with your will and estate planning. My wife and I have put it off for years. I think deep down, we did not really want to deep dive into what would happen in the case of our untimely death. Once we made the effort to move forward, Emma walked us though the various scenarios, as only she could. She took a very lighthearted approach and made references to her own personal experience in planning her estate that made us really think about how we could have positive influence on our kids future when we were not there in the flesh. Our planning sessions with Emma were very productive, honed in on exactly what we wanted, while it felt like we were meeting with an long time friend for coffee. Since my first meeting with Emma, I have referred several friends to her and each rave about their experience. Simply put, after each and every visit with Emma, my wife and I look at each other and say "I am so glad we met with her!"

Highest Recommendation for Attorney Hilton - Excellent at her job, genuinely cares and is extremely effective!!!
I was fortunate to cross paths with Attorney Hilton nearly a decade ago. I was in need of a variety of services, but thought I would test the water with some tax and legal services to start. I am so glad I did. Right away, she put my mind at ease and truly made me feel welcome as a client. She listened sincerely and intently to my situation without any sort of judgement and drew from her real world experience, which I found very comforting. She and her staff made it easy to get appointments and I was thrilled at the speed with which progress occurred and solutions were in place. What started out on the personal tax and legal services side has evolved over the past decade to include estate planning as well as business strategy, business tax planning and business legal services for the professional services firm I am part of. Over the years I have grown to recognize and admire Attorney Hilton's true gift – her ability to instantly assimilate massive amounts of information and compare a multitude of scenarios and strategies while getting to the bottom of complicated issues quickly, helping you understand in real time what the best, most effective, most realistic course of action would be. She is able to do all of that quickly, efficiently and with genuine care. I cannot tell you how many times she has helped put my mind at ease and found solutions that were truly exceptional and effective. I joke that while most people cannot think outside of the box, Attorney Hilton’s thought process and problem solving approach knows no bounds, which I’m convinced makes all of the difference. Whether you are looking to use Attorney Hilton's services personally or professionally, rest assured you will be in good hands. Her astute insights, effective solutions and caring nature have earned her a very loyal client for life.
