Dillon Norton & his team are exceptional!
We were in need of a probate attorney and Dillon came highly recommended. During our consultation, Dillon explained the timeline and what to expect with the process. Everything was exactly as he said it would be along with concise, compassionate communication during a difficult time. I am very impressed with Dillon and his team, and we are thankful he was recommended to us. I would certainly recommend Dillon to anyone who was in need of the services he provides.

Hospitalized
Mr. Norton went out of his way to help me complete my last document I needed to do while I was still hospitalized. We completed my TOD. His kindness to go above and beyond should be respected. I would recommend his services to anyone needing assistance with end of life documents.

Excellent Lawyer Who Goes the Extra Mile
Mr. Dillon handled an extremely sensitive case that required a lot of his time. He would always give me an update regarding my case and helped me understand the legal process. He established great open communication with the opposing counsel. I highly recommend Mr. Norton because he definitely goes the extra mile to ensure you are a priority.

Comprehensive and Caring
When family issues force you to seek legal assistance you need a calm and thorough attorney guiding your action and Dillon most assuredly meets this need. Dillon was sympathetic; however, his intensity to completely represent us was exceptional. He took the time to fully understand the situation and present multiple options that would lead to an appropriate resolution. We were encouraged to seek his guidance from another family attorney which is a true testament to his prominence with other colleagues.

Very supportive, knowledgeable attorney
Dillon made the probate process as simple as possible, even though we had to do all the paperwork online due to COVID. He answered all my questions very clearly and helped me understand the Texas probate procedures. He was prompt, courteous, and very professional after my brother's death. I appreciate everything he did and would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

Provided critical assistance during a very challenging time
Dillon was professional, extremely responsive, and knowledgeable. I leveraged his services as I worked through the probate of my late father's estate. I was going to attempt to do it on my own, but soon after I began working with Dillon, I realized that I needed to leave it in the hands of a professional. What I found particularly helpful was his explanation of every part of the process as we worked through probate. It gave me great comfort knowing that we were doing things the right way, leaving no stone uncovered. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Dillon.

Fast, Responsive, Supportive
Dillon was great to work with. He was responsive and very helpful. I had a very quick turn around requirement for an agreement that he was able to commit to and accommodate. He was positive, friendly, encouraging, and explained all the issues to me in a way that was easy to understand. And he gave me the advice I needed. He coordinated the identification of other resources that were necessary to make it all happen, making the process really very easy for me. He brought calm and assurance to what could have been a very difficult time. Thanks Dillon.

BEST LAWYER EVER!!!
Dillon Norton helped me when dealing with a small claims lawsuit. He was willing to walk me through the step by step process and offer amazing advice in order to take care of this matter. The guy, in my opinion, is a saint. He is willing to take as much time out of his day as needed and help out. I will be using him for all future needs and will be referring as much business his way as possible. Truly a gifted and amazing individual. Thank you Dillon for everything.

Pemberton
I apologize in advance for not being the best writer but i wanted to leave a review. Never in my life have I’ve ever had a issue with an officer especially when it comes to physical engagement. my significant other and I were going through a divorce. Some days were good and others were bad as we were trying to be respectful and figure out our next steps to move forward. A particular day I went to speak to her at her place of employment. The conversation was not the best conversation especially at here job which i can agree. The officer on duty wanted to check on her which she told the officer to leave as we continue our conversation. The officer didn’t know our relationship so he stuck around. The officer eventually asked me to leave which i coorapatretd but for the officer i wasn’t moving fast enough for him. This is when the conversation escalated between me and the officer. The officer started to get physical which was uncalled for when an individual is following orders. The officer was a lot smaller in weight and height which made him feel he had to be physical with a guy my size. The only issue was he couldn’t stand up properly while trying to subdue me because of the slippery floors of the establishment. He wouldn’t give me a reason for his actions, when asking why is he doing this “your not moving fast enough for me”. The incident grew where the cop got so physical i received a black eye while he made threats of “Im going to shoot you”. A unarmed man is bout to be shoot by a cop who is armed nor did the unarmed man run nor get physical with a smaller individual. This event in my life was all a lot to process. Getting a divorce, getting hit by a cop, going to jail and etc. Of course i needed to obtain a lawyer which Dillon Norton took my case. The main thing that Mr. Dillon ask me was to tell him the truth of the incident. He asked me multiple times to make sure i tell him the truth. I told him all the truth that i possibly could from the night before to the time of the incident. Mr. Dillon told me if your telling me the truth i got your back. i was still unsure all because i never been in a situation of this magnitude especially with the justice system. Mr.Norton took my case serious working hard to get reports, statements and video footage while also asking others lawyers for help with my case. Every visit for court dates, the DA would try to make an offer. I felt video doesn’t lie even if i never saw the video. Mr. Norton pushed back against the DA making them work a little harder. The DA kept trying to make me an offer on many occasions. Once again Mr, Norton asked the same simple question “are you telling the truth” My answer was Yes. The DA went for witnesses of the day event including the officer that was involved. The judge saw there were 3-4 reports that didn’t match and a lack of witness including the officer. Mr. Norton was fighting for me, talking with the DA,talking to the judge, working with outside resources to prove i was innocent. You can imagine my nervousness with the system for some one of my background. Mentally trying to stay happy with this case on my back. But Mr. Norton fought for me where the case was dropped. The DA couldn’t win due to lack of evidence and because MR. Norton was fighting for me. I couldn’t ask for a better lawyer especially when someone who will fight for you just by telling the truth. This was a learning experience and pray never to see a judge on the wrong side of court. Thanks Mr. Norton for believing in me and looking out for my freedom. If you can tell the truth to this man, you have a better chance of him serving you to the best of his ability

Outstanding Legal Services
I recently had the occasion to hire a Texas lawyer to represent me in the Estate of my uncle Ken, Houston. As a Maryland resident, I was lost in the probate process of Texas. Geographical obstacles as well as the unfamiliarity of the probate procedures left me not knowing where to turn. Luckily I found Dillon Norton to represent me in this estate and I could not be more pleased and thankful. Not only was he excellent in the representation, but he was kind, compassionate and very communicative. I would recommend him to anyone in state or out-of-state like me. Texas is very lucky to have DILLON NORTON in the legal field. Wish he was a practicing lawyer in MARYLAND.

Widower Needed Help
When I didn't know with whom I should talk to get some legal advice for issues with my late wife's probate, I asked some friends at church, and two guys recommended D.B. Norton. Dillon resolved the problem swiftly with attention to my case, and what a relief! Thanks to my church friends, and thanks to D.B. Norton, Esq.

Very pleased with Dillon
Dillon helped us with our will. He is very kind, knowledgeable, walked us through every step of the process and even came to our home to discuss the details. Dillon made us feel at ease with the process and was able to expedite the process and certification of the will. I would definitely recommend Dillon to anyone.

Great Experience!
After several years of trying to get a debt owed to me paid, I hired Mr. Norton to write a Demand Letter. It was a huge success. I received the money owed and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Mr. Norton. He's diligent and extremely easy to talk with over the phone. He answered all of my questions and addressed all concerns.

dillon norton review
I would highly recommend Dillon as your attorney. He walked me through the steps of estate planning. He gave me very personal attention, came to my house, met me at Starbucks, the courthouse, and offered to go to the bank with me. Talked to my financial advisor and found a trust company for me. He was thoroughly knowledgeable about every aspect of estate planning. I feel prepared for the future.
