As a local CPA, I am asked for referrals quite often. Leigh makes ME look good. Without exception, any client I have ever referred to her have always come back and thanked me for the referral. Leigh is extremely knowledgeable in her area of law. As an added bonus, she is personable and quickly responds to any and all requests.
Not only have I referred clients to Leigh, I have utilized her services myself. She thoroughly explains any areas of the law when asked.
Living in a city with close proximity to the D/FW area, it is nice to know that Denton has a capable attorney such as Leigh Hilton. I absolutely give her my highest recommendation with no hesitation.

We have used Leigh on two levels: 1) to review and rewrite our wills and estate planning documents and then 2) to setup a supplemental trust to help secure my parents estate as they entered into the nursing home environment.
We have recommended Leigh to our friends.

After moving to Texas from another state we needed to make major changes in our wills and trusts to comply with Texas laws. Leigh was very helpful in this process. Her patience and professionalism were outstanding. The family meeting she conducted with our children and financial advisor to share our wishes and expectations was very valuable.

In setting up our wills and trust, Leigh Hilton guided us through a process that we'd been avoiding for far too long-- and she did so with patient efficiency. We found her to be highly trained and experienced, a caring professional who shared our concerns and our values, and we would recommend her to anyone seeking assistance with wills, trust, and related needs. Even though we have relocated some three hundred miles from Leigh Hilton's Denton office, we hope to continue our personal and professional association with her and her excellent team.

Leigh is a great estate planning and probate lawyer. I have entrusted her with some on my own clients when they needed legal services in the Denton area. She is dedicated to her family, her clients, and her profession! She and her staff take care of business. You will never go wrong having Leigh as your counselor.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known her for a long time. Leigh is an excellent estate planning and probate attorney that I have referred several clients to. I have received nothing but positive feedback. Leigh is extremely knowledgeable in her field and puts her clients' interests first. She charges reasonable fees and I will continue to refer clients to her when needed. She also represents clients in matters dealing with elderly law issues and I know that she is very knowledgeable and competent in this area of the law as well.
