Justin Hilton

Justin Hilton is known for his thoughtful approach in providing comprehensive legal support to high-net-worth individuals, families, business owners, and entrepreneurs to design and implement sophisticated wealth transfer and business succession strategies. However, what truly sets Justin apart is his unwavering commitment to building meaningful relationships with his clients.

Recognizing that each client’s financial journey is unique, Justin prioritizes building strong connections to fully understand their long-term goals. By delving deep into their individual needs, Justin crafts tailored strategies aimed at achieving his client’s goals effectively.

Experiencing firsthand the consequences of not having a comprehensive plan in place, Justin strives to provide clients with strategies that will protect their family for future generations. However, Justin’s approach to estate and business succession planning goes beyond the mere creation of documents. He closely collaborates with clients, offering personalized solutions that facilitate the seamless transfer of wealth across generations. From drafting foundational documents like wills, trusts, powers of attorney, to integrating sophisticated business succession and estate tax mitigation strategies through the use of Buy-Sell Agreements and irrevocable special purpose trusts, Justin ensures that his client’s legacies are preserved and protected.

In addition to his expertise in estate planning, Justin brings invaluable insight into transactional matters, representing clients across various corporate and individual settings. Whether negotiating purchase and sale agreements or facilitating entity formation and corporate restructuring, he remains dedicated to safeguarding his clients’ interests at every turn.

Justin extends his support beyond the initial planning stages, providing ongoing guidance on fiduciary responsibilities and assisting clients in navigating any trust, estate, or tax disputes that may arise.
