Hillary concentrates her practice in the areas of estate planning and trust and estate administration. She is well-versed in the complex issues families face after the death of a loved one and assists her clients through the probate process with kindness and compassion during that vulnerable time. She has represented individuals in the full gamut of estates, ranging from simple small estate administrations to multi-million dollar probates. From this experience, Hillary knows what a difference an excellently drafted, cohesive estate plan can make to families, and ensures each client receives an estate plan individually tailored to their unique needs. She assists individuals with wealth preservation, long term care planning, and probate avoidance.
Hillary graduated from Gonzaga University double majoring in History and English Literature, with a minor in Political Science. She received her juris doctorate from the University of Washington School of Law in 2015. During law school, Hillary was part of UW’s Federal Tax Clinic, where she assisted low income individuals in disputes with the IRS.
Since joining the firm in 2018, Hillary has added family law practice to her repertoire. She has guided clients through the murky waters of divorce, domestic violence, child support, and parenting plan issues with realistic advice and strong advocacy. While she has accomplished considerable victories for her clients in the courtroom, she also excels at reaching favorable out-of-court settlements so people can move on with their lives without the cost and uncertainty of trial. She takes great pride in helping her clients achieve positive outcomes during what is often the most tumultuous and painful time in their lives.
When away from the office, Hillary enjoys backpacking, snowboarding, and cheering on Washington sports teams with her husband Mick and their two children.
