Best Probate Attorney!
I contacted Jillian initially because my father had passed away with no will and I needed an attorney who was licensed in Arizona and also in Michigan. From the start, she was wonderful. There were so many aspects to my father's estate that were difficult and she met every challenge head on. She was there for me every step of the way as executor. She always explained everything that is my responsibility and gave me every option possible, along with her recommendation, so I could make my own informed decision. I could not have asked for a better attorney to help me through such a difficult time and be my backbone and voice when I was so overwhelmed with everything. Do not hesitate to hire her, you will be so glad you did!

A God Send!
I am extremely grateful for Jillian Hindo and the Hindo Law Group! I had been dealing with credit card debt for years and it finally got to a point where it felt like a death sentence because it had increased so much! As a Christian, I was ashamed because I am a firm believer that you pay what you owe, but it seemed that I would never get out of that massive financial hole that I put myself in after so many years. After much prayer and counsel, I decided to consider bankruptcy. Jillian helped a relative of mine two years prior to me deciding to file bankrupt and my cousin raved about how kind, patient, and understanding Jillian left her feeling throughout the entire process. I called Jillian and I immediately felt a peace wash over me. She was nonjudgmental, informative, and thorough. After our initial consultation, I knew she was the person to help me get through such a rough season in my life. Jillian and her team were all responsive, kept me abreast, and I can never fully express my gratitude for their service. For anyone that is having a tough time financially due to missteps and need a fresh start, I without a shadow of doubt would encourage you to contact Jillian today! She will help you get to a new chapter of your life that is much needed!!!

Amazing!
Jillian helped me with a tricky probate. She spent her time to gather all the information to ensure it was done correctly. She kept me updated about any changes. After sending her a check to cover the probate costs she refunded me the difference between her estimate and the actual cost. This shows she is trustworthy, detail-oriented, and willing to do any extra work to make sure things are proper. I highly recommend!

If You Don’t Hire Jillian, You’re Literally Wasting Your Time
With Covid we didn’t have an in person court date. However, with the virtual format we called in at our appropriate time but the court was a little behind schedule. We sat and listened while 12 other cases were called before ours with those 12 cases being represented by 10 other area attorneys. Not ONE of those lawyers OR the clients they were in charge of preparing were prepared. Not ONE!!! When the trustee has to question aloud “why are we even having this heard today, neither of you are prepared”....yeah, that’s bad... When our case was called the trustee stopped to take a moment before all else to thank Jillian for her work before the call and for her repeated preparedness. No other attorney was even close to being ready and by extension their clients were also wildly all over the map with excuses for not being prepared as well. Complete waste of time and money and believe me, the trustee will tell you that. Again, if you need an attorney and you haven’t hired Jillian, you are wasting your time and money. We have the utmost confidence and admiration for Jillian and her team as she guided us through a life changing event we did not see coming and she did it with ease; even when I did some bone headed stuff she told me not to do. She kept us on track every step from A to B to Z. Can’t stress it enough, she’s as good as they come and she will tell you up front what your costs are going to be and what to expect and she wasn’t wrong on any of it. So....what are you waiting for?

Trust redo
Jillian was amazing, redoing our trust. She was patient and willing to answer lots of questions and guide us through the process. Our previous trust lawyer got carried away with the cut and paste method and made mistakes that could have been problematic. Every aspect of this trust was tailored to what we needed. It is also reassuring to know, that she is a resource, for our children as well. I would highly recommend her services.

Compassionate and honest 100%!
Jillian was so very helpful and compassionate throughout my entire bankruptcy! She understands that once you've made the tough decision to file, money is already tight, so she was so flexible with payments. Anytime I had a question or needed something I always had a response the same day or the next. She walked me through the process every step of the way and was always very upfront about what to expect. I just can't stress enough how much of a lifesaver she is! 100% recommended her services!

Rockstar Jill
I was fearful and embarrassed to be in the situation I was in. I spoke w numerous bankruptcy attorneys and still didn’t feel so good. After reaching out to Jill, I decided to finally discuss the steps I needed to move forward with my life, I felt a huge weight off my shoulders. Jill was extremely professional and it felt like I hired a friend or family member and not an attorney. She made my experience a walk in the park. Thank you Jill. Hands down second to none service, HIGHLY recommended!

Phenomenal, Empathetic, & Compassionate Attorney - Very Grateful for Ms. Hindo!
I located Ms. Hindo on Avvo when I started my research. After reading through all of her five star, stellar reviews, I scheduled a consultation. After said meeting, I knew that she would be the one to help me navigate the process. She is very thorough, non-judgmental, and extremely compassionate. The stigma that surrounds one who has to file is less than appealing, but Jillian makes her clients feel at ease, which has been a godsend. She has been patient through the process and accepting of any flaws/issues that arise. She is truly an ally to anyone who needs help. I am eternally grateful for all that she has, and continues, to do for me. Go Blue!!! :-)

Jillian Hindo was exceptional
Filing for Bankruptcy is not an easy thing to do, but after our first meeting with Jillian, my husband and I had complete confidence in her. She answered all our questions and explained in detail what we should expect moving forward. She provided all the tools to help us make this process as seamless as possible. I would refer her to any of my family and friends. Thank you Jillian!

Exceeded Expectations
Jillian is someone you can trust and has a thorough understanding of the law. She is both professional and approachable. She is very detail oriented and extremely efficient. Throughout the entire process, Jillian was consistent in responding quickly and clearly to all my emails, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would hire Jillian again in an instant. Once you have Jillian on your side, you can breathe easy. Jillian helped create a trust package during an extremely emotional period for me. Jillian was compassionate, empathetic, and supportive while simultaneously encouraging me to make the hard decisions required for my Will. She was patient and informative while I sorted through and explored all my options. She understands the stresses life brings and helped me see past emotions in order to make wise and informed decisions. All but the final signing of documents were handled through phone calls and emails, saving time on travel. Jillian organized my final documents into a folder allowing for easy and clear navigation through the lengthy documents. Even after her work was officially finished, Jillian was still available to answer questions that arose. Jillian exceeded my expectations in every area. I highly recommend Jillian!

SHE IS THE VERY BEST!
Jillian is definitely someone you want in your corner! It was definitely a pleasure in working with her through my Bankruptcy process. I was confused, stressed out, didn’t know who to talk to at first. She’s highly experienced! Very detailed, easily explained the process to me, stayed in constant contact with me throughout and advised what I needed to do to get my case closed. I would recommend her to anyone!!!

Exceptional service
Jillian has helped my wife and I through a difficult time in our lives. We had bills and creditors piling up and were close to losing everything. Jillian was able to get our chapter 13 worked out to a manageable payment and save the things we worked so hard for. We have and will continue to recommend Jillian to friends and family who are in the unfortunate position we were in.

Bankruptcy
I was 3 days away from losing my home when I contacted Jillian. She saw me the same day I called and within 24 hours, the foreclosure sale of my home was stopped. I never thought I would have to file bankruptcy but she guided through all the steps and made it understandable and easy. I will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of an honest, reliable and knowledgeable lawyer.

Jillian Is Excellent
Many years ago I was injured in an auto accident. The most enduring memory of the event occurred when the metal crashed against my leg. How utterly shocking it was to instantly feel the entire inside of my body burst into fire. It took several months of medical care to recover. Last year, I had a similar incident, but it didn’t involve any bodily injury. This time, the physical dimension was removed and had been replaced by all the others; psychological, emotional, mental, and financial. But when I opened the bill from the hospital, the experience was like running into a brick wall, very similar to the previous accident and just as shocking. The hospital wanted more than $65,000! I quite simply couldn’t deal with it. Previous difficulties had sapped all my resilience, so there was nothing left. It was pure suffering for weeks as I wondered what to do about this horrible new reality. Eventually, I began to look for someone who could advise me through this mysterious thicket of issues and demands. The search quickly led to Jillian Hindo, who turned out to be my knight in shining armor. Jillian assuaged my sense of terror with reassurances of how we would proceed and what the outcomes might be at each step of the process. She’s also part of the local network of attorneys and administrators who deal with these issues every day at work. So it felt very, very good to have a knowledgeable expert on my side who also was a known entity among the people we had to deal with. The process went smoothly, although with numerous gaps when the other side either dropped the ball or assigned it lower priority for a while. Jillian always kept me up to date regarding all her calls and letters, and the effects they may have had. And she was always prompt and attentive in retuning my calls whenever I felt curious about the latest info. She also sent a periodic summary of her expenses including the balance remaining. Her cost was very reasonable; it seemed like she actually cared about my difficult situation. I won’t detail the actual settlement amount because, as they say on TV, no results are typical. Suffice it to say I was impressed – even astonished. What she was able to do for me may not be possible in your case. But one thing you can depend on is that you will have a dedicated, veteran professional working steadily on your behalf if you hire Jillian Hindo. She restored my hope and equilibrium from what seemed like a near-death experience. I would definitely hire Jillian again. And I would highly recommend her to you. Thank you, Jillian. With gratitude from Sun City

My shoulders have become ligther because......
It is amazing the burdens on my shoulders have become lighter because of the hard work Jillian and Michelle have done on behalf of my child and myself. I am not a lawyer and know very little about the legal system most especially my rights as a father. My first encounter with Jillian was over the phone. She had worked with my mother on an estate matter and was very helpful and professional so when I decided to ask for assistance in establishing visitation, educational and general care of my youngest son my mother suggested Jillian. My mom spoke with Jillian and while Jillian does probate, trusts and things of this type, she explained she works with another family lawyer and they would work together to help me. Shortly after hiring these attorneys a serious situation arose that needed attention. Jillian and Michelle immediately contacted the court when they heard what happened and worked diligently on my behalf. Their focus was on maintaining a safe situation for my child and making sure my child was not exposed to more dangerous happenings. They have fought tirelessly for the safety of my child and my rights as his father. Jillian and Michelle are professional and show great interest in the welfare of my child and myself. When I need to ask clarifying questions they never make me feel ignorant for asking. They are a very dynamic team and work well with each other. They respond quickly to my calls or emails and are respectful when I have fears concerning what is happening. If you ever fear for your child because of violence in a domestic situation they are the team you want in your corner. Michelle takes seriously the safety of children and is ready to stand up for them in court. Jillian is the same and they are both strong defenders of families and family values, however, they are not afraid to take on the responsibilities of child safety when the need arises. In our situation Supervised Visits were necessary and Michelle fought to make sure it happened. Each of these ladies brings different strengths to their clients. While we have won everything we have asked for, and that was important, I honestly feel they were motivated by strong convictions, ethics and the safe being of my child. They put in place safeguards and accountability on the part of my child’s mother. This is not an experience anyone wishes to go through, however, you could not have a better team working for and with you than Jillian and Michelle. There is no hesitation on my part on recommending them should you have the need for their services.

Excellent attorney
We hired Jillian for our bankruptcy. She was wonderful to work with. She kept us well informed and was very responsive to calls and emails. She was able to calm me down when I got very stressed out. I don't think we could have found a better attorney. I would recommend her to anyone.
