Posted by William
I took over management of my mother's finances a few years ago, when her dementia rendered her unable to take care of them herself. Mom stayed at home and I simply arranged for in-home care. But when it became necessary for her to move into assisted living, I started to worry Mom's money might run out before she passes away, and I knew I was out of my depth. A social worker gave me Leigh Hilton's name, I had a consult, and hired her. Best thing I've done for my mother.
Ms Hilton and her associates know their stuff! They've helped me protect my mother's assets and have gotten us through the baffling process of getting my mother certified for Medicaid. I have a Ph.D. and my wife's an attorney — but we couldn't have done this without the help of the Leigh Hilton law firm.
I might also mention that I live in East Dallas, not in Dallas. We've driven up to Ms Hilton's office a couple of times for important consults and document signings but otherwise all my interaction with them has been through phone and email, which has worked fine.
They've been professional, supportive and communicative. As I said, getting their help has been the best thing I've done for my mother.

Leigh Hilton is exceptionally capable in Family Law practice. We have had legal work done in business and personal before. Leigh created trust and developed our medical powers, etc. very easily and to our specific needs.

My wife and I relocated to North Texas to retire from the Washington DC area and had no legal contacts here. So we were referred to Leigh by a friend. It was an excellent referral! She helped with setting up an LLC for my consulting business and with establishing a trust and related paperwork for our end of life planning. I have been happy with all of her services and her patience with explaining things. She also hosts regular seminars on topics of interest for those needing elder law insights. These are always useful. I learn something of value at every one of them.

Lee Hilton and staff know their stuff! We needed to update Powers of Attorney, Medical Powers of Attorney and additional legal forms for my mother and my three siblings. After explaining our requests by email and phone conversations, her staff accepted all of the required information by fax or email attachments and then set a one time appointment to visit her office in order to sign these new documents. Her knowledge is outstanding and the documents were very thorough and addressed all contingencies. We will use her to update our will's and related documents. I strongly recommend Leigh Hilton and her staff..

Leigh met with my husband and myself to help us update our wills! She gathered relevant data, asked pertinent questions, and guided us through the process. She is very professional! I would highly recommend her!

Leigh reviewed my trust and provided many helpful suggestions in several seminars that I have attended.
I was given a copy of her Texas Trustee Manual that will be very helpful in the future.

Leigh Hilton has provided all the above for 10 years and revised them as needed during my life changes. I plan to continue to utilize her advice and assistance as need in the future

I have been practicing law in Denton County for 30 years and have known Leigh for most of them. I have consulted with her and referred clients to her for estate and elder law matters. She is knowledgeable, caring and does and excellent job for her clients. I strongly recommend her.

We highly recommend Leigh Hilton if you have estate planning needs. She is very knowledgeable, honest, approachable, and always responds quickly to our questions or concerns. Her staff also is very courteous and professional.

Ms. Hilton helped my wife and myself draw up our wills and with other end-of-life planning tasks. She did a great job on the legal work, of course. But what really impressed me is the understanding she showed of our special family situations (unreliable relatives and the like). This was a big help in deciding on the details of all the necessary documents.
