I have over the course of many years been required to update my will and the details of my estate planning and have used the resources of several attorneys in the process.
I have never met or worked with an attorney as competent and thorough as April Hill.
My sister has been recently placed in assisted living and I needed to set up a Revocable Trust as well as a Special Needs Trust.
I am very fortunate to have met April Hill.
This is why.
First of all she is very generous with her time. On my first visit to her office in St. Petersburg she gave me a detailed analysis of the complexity involved with legal documents regarding my sister's special needs. She outlined and clarified every legal distinction and definition regarding every question I asked her. She drew comprehensive graphs on a white board as a means of explaining points which I didn't understand.
But the thing which I found most satisfying was in the final work product of the Revocable Trust. In addition to the original documents, this financial instrument was presented to totally organized in a ring binder with every heading containing copies of all the many and varied documents tabulated and ordered all together. I am not an attorney and often feel at odds and uncertain regarding the rules and requirements pertaining to these important documents, thus the level of organization I found at the Hill Law Group, took an enormous amount of stress of me by virtue the completeness, attention to detail, and competence of the Hill Law Group .
As aforementioned, I have worked with many attorneys in the past and have not experienced such service for such a reasonable fee.
April Hill and the Hill Law Group has my highest recommendation.

Ms. Hill was exceptionally kind and thorough, and timely. She thought of things that I/we had not considered, and gave viable options and alternatives. She offered solid reasons for her advice, and explained issues in a manner that was easily understood. I freely encourage the use and services of Ms. Hill's!

I went to Hill Law Group to have some legal documents drawn up and was impressed by not only the professional and caring environment of their offices, but the attention to detail and personal attention that we received by the team. I cannot compliment them enough on their handling of my needs and the expertise that they have provided which has helped me in dozens of ways. If you are looking for an elder law, probate, or life care planning specialist - I couldn't recommend Hill Law Group any higher. They are the one you need to choose!

I have been a colleague of April Hill for many years and have found her to be creative in her approaches to Medicaid planning and related matters. Her background in Social Work makes her especially gifted in assisting families with Elder Law issues. Therefore, I endorse April Hill.
