Hilary is an experienced succession lawyer who brings many years of legal experience to the firm.  Hilary has been with Pacific Law for nearly ten years and has enjoyed helping the firm grow and expand to where it is today.

Hilary works exclusively in the areas of wills, estates and trusts after starting out in general practice over 27 years ago. Hilary enjoys the challenge of piecing together a comprehensive estate plan for her clients and getting to know them and their stories along the way.
