    Alana and Jonathan were a great help as we navigated ownership of FL property upon the passing of our parents. They are knowledgeable, quick to respond, and very helpful.

  • Attorney Hill provided thoughtful and detailed first steps.
    My initial consultation with Attorney Hill regarding my handicapped son was very informative and helpful. Attorney Hill provided thoughtful and detailed first steps. Additional family members plan to relocate to Florida in addition to my son. All intend to utilize the counsel of the Hill & Kinsella law firm.

  • They are a very caring group of individuals.
    April Hill and her team of experts helped me to get my brother's finances in order along with assisting me with Medicaid for him. If it wasn't for them, we would be in a predicament. They are compassionate and professional, along with being patient with myself and my brother. They are a very caring group of individuals. I am so grateful for what they have done for us. Can't say enough for this firm.

    April and her staff are really fantastic. My family was struggling with how to move forward with my grandma's future and finances. They not only walked us through some next steps we were aware of, but showed us resources we would have never found on our own! Thank you Hill & Kinsella!

  • Great Service
    Welcome J. Kinsella!  He is joining an already great group. We participated in the recent shredding event. This is the second year we have done so and it was a truly enjoyable event. This year with all the contributing factors involved, it was handled with style and class. Thank you for doing this every year. Even when the circumstances were not helping to make this an easy effort. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.

  • Thanks to Hill & Kinsella for their excellent and personal service!
    Appreciate the excellent service of April and Jonathan in working with us on updating Wills and other end of life paperwork. Also appreciate April Hill's involvement with AARP events and other community organizations and conferences related to seniors and retirees. The yearly "Shredding, Electronic recycling, and Lunch" event also builds good will and adds a personal sense of connection for all of us with the staff. We feel that we are in good hands with Hill & Kinsella!

  • Caring, Compassionate, and Incredibly Wise
    April came to my rescue when my mom was in a nursing home. She safeguarded my mom's money and ensured that it would be passed on to me---which it was! I don't know what I would have done without her. I can't recommend her and her firm enough. She is a life saver. And more than that she is the real thing: caring, compassionate and incredibly wise. -Susan

  • I am forever grateful to April Hill...
    It was providential the day I met April Hill at a Gulfport Chamber meeting. Four hours earlier, my adult son's Neuropsychologist had told me I needed to contact an Elder Law Attorney re: planning for him -- I had never before heard of this special area of law. Meeting with April, I discovered that she had been a Social Worker working with brain-injured clients prior to becoming an attorney, I felt my prayers had been answered! I am forever grateful to April Hill for her continued caring and professional expertise!

    - Gerard

  • Hill & Kinsella has much more than legal expertise!
    I rarely write reviews, but when you find something special, you need to share it! Hill & Kinsella has much more than legal expertise! The patience and compassion for families going through difficult times while providing the best legal representation available, makes this the firm the one I recommend personally and professionally!

I highly recommend Hill & Kinsella for your Elder Law needs.

  • Compassionate, reliable and responsive.
    Our family has been a client of April for almost 10 years now. She helped us navigating complex estate planning and setting up health care transition for our family member. She is compassionate, reliable and responsive. We often refer friends and other family members to her.

  • She and her team are a blessing to our family.
    April & her team have been helping us now for over 8 years. She and her team are a blessing to our family.

  • Could not have done all of this without Hill & Kinsella.
    When the time came to get Mom's affairs in order, plan for her move to assisted living, we went in search of a law firm to help. After asking several law forms in Pasco and Pinellas, several gave us the name of Hill & Kinsella. Our first meeting with Atty. Jonathan Kinsella assured us they had given us the right referral! Mr. Kinsella guided us through all the potential pitfalls on the road to Medicaid assistance for Mom and our handicapped sister. He helped us to create a "dependant child trust" for our sister and managed all of the legal paperwork necessary to move things along. We are now looking forward to moving Mom and our sister into the same ALF. Could not have done all of this without Hill & Kinsella.

  • Attorney Jonathan Kinsella is a lifesaver.
    Like many others, I found myself trying to navigate the very time consuming, mind-boggling process of taking care of my elderly parents' needs. Hill & Kinsella was highly recommended to me by a variety of individuals and organizations. Attorney Jonathan Kinsella is a lifesaver. He handles everything from Power of Attorney procedures to Medicaid applications & recertification. His knowledge and efficiency has relieved me of a lot of the stress that comes with parental caregiving. The entire staff at Hill & Kinsella has been wonderful to work with and I highly recommend them for your legal needs.

  • Competent and compassionate services from a reputable and knowledgeable law group
    Competent and compassionate services from a reputable and knowledgeable law group. Also this group is part of a Fall Prevention program for this month of October in our Tampa Bay area called "Defying Gravity" which shows a very positive community service orientation. Many thanks!

  • Shows great concern for our elderly and I would highly recommend her services
    I find April Hill to be honest, reliable, and efficient. She shows great concern for our elderly and I would highly recommend her services.

  • Hill & Kinsella is Fantastic
    We recently faced the task of not only moving a parent from independent living to a nursing facility, but also dealing with the complications of the Medicaid process. Jonathan Kinsella guided us through the process from an introductory meeting all the way through approval. The process was organized, expectations were set and met at each step along the way, and any time we had a question or tried to contact Hill & Kinsella, they responded promptly. This was a difficult time for our family and Jonathan Kinsella did an excellent job. We have the utmost confidence in Hill & Kinsella and look forward to their ongoing guidance with the Florida Medicaid process. Thank you.

    - Rick

  • Kind, Caring, Compassionate
    I have known April for over 16 years and trust her so much that I referred my own personal family members to her for documents they needed to put into place. April and her team are kind, caring, compassionate and are like family to me. I highly recommend.

    - Bernadette

  • Medicaid Application
    Jonathan Kinsella of Hill & Kinsella guided me through the process of submitting a Medicaid application for my partner of 26 years. He determined which documents had to be procured relative to IRAs, 401Ks, medical plans, pensions, etc. and gave me clear instructions for wordings of the documents. His directions were clear and specific. He was available whenever I had a question. His help resulted in a timely Medicaid acceptance. Going through this process without legal help would be more time consuming and error prone. I am happy to highly recommend Jonathan Kinsella.

  • Encouraging Yet Realistic
    I can’t find enough words to praise April Hill and Hill & Kinsella. Compassionate; smart; tenacious; organized; encouraging yet realistic; the entire team helped me through a long & arduous process that turned out to be even longer & more difficult than any of us expected and I don’t know how I could have done it without them. I wholeheartedly recommend Hill & Kinsella!

    - Elma

  • So Grateful for Hill & Kinsella
    Recently we became Power of Attorney for a elderly lady we care for in which we needed a elder care lawyer to assist with going through the Medicaid Process. We were referred Hill & Kinsella from a close friend. April and Jonathan together really made the process go very smoothly, because of their detailed knowledge of the Elder Care Laws in Florida and Medicaid. They are very thorough, organized and patient. They took the time to explain everything so that it was easily understood. We would highly recommend April and Jonathan for your family elder care needs in the future.

  • My wife and I both have no hesitation in enthusiastically endorsing April Hill and Hill & Kinsella!
    April Hill helped my wife and I prepare our estate documents when we moved to Florida. April was not only professional, thorough and knowledgeable, she was also very personable and comfortable to work with. Her explanations of our options and choices were very clear, and she was very patient with our questions. The other attorneys in her office and all of her staff were delightful to work with. A special aspect of their practice is that, unlike most attorneys I have dealt with, they have fixed fees for their estate planning services. My wife and I both have no hesitation in enthusiastically endorsing April Hill and Hill & Kinsella!

  • Elder Law: Florida Medicaid Application
    After our Dad's sudden death, Jonathan Kinsella was most helpful in assisting our family with the Medicaid application for our 94-year-old mother living in Florida. This enabled her to move from independent living to skilled nursing at the same senior community in which she had lived with our Dad. Since both of her children live out of state, Jonathan's excellent communication skills and use of technology enabled us to gain Medicaid approval as quickly as possible. It was a pleasure working with Jonathan and I highly recommend him as an attorney specializing in eldercare.

    - Maureen

  • Highly Recommend Without Hesitation
    There are certain times in life when having a trusted advisor on your side makes all the difference in the world. Fortunately, I was introduced to Hill & Kinsella just prior to my world turning upside down. My father and I met with Jonathan Kinsella to formulate a plan for my mother’s long-term care that also protected my parents’ financial security. (My mother was bedridden and was suffering from a host of very serious health issues.) In a cruel twist of fate, my father died suddenly and unexpectedly about one month later, leaving me with myriad of questions as my family faced an uncertain future. Thankfully, I had Jonathan and the staff of Hill & Kinsella on my side. He calmly walked me through my options and worked to get necessary legal documents in place as we formulated a new plan for my mother. Not only are the staff of Hill & Kinsella well-versed in all matters concerning elder care law, they are also very kind, compassionate, and honest. This was evidenced by Jonathan making a house call to meet my mother in person due to her very-limited mobility. He methodically explained options and reviewed documentation with her. I cannot thank Carmen, Stacee and Jonathan enough for helping me navigate through one of the most difficult times of my life. They are to be commended for their excellent work as well as their kindness. I highly recommend them without hesitation!

  • An Impossible Task Became Possible
    I am Dave Chalfant and I live in Pa. In 2007 I became the care giver for my older brother (he was 63) and lived in St. Petersburg. Through some personal tragedies, he was not able to care for himself. Attorney Hill was recommended to me by one of his neighbors. We connected. Over the next 11 years her elder care knowledge, legal advice, and personal care have been invaluable. What seemed at first like an impossible task became possible through her connections, legal expertise, and her personal care. She gets 10 stars out of 5 in my opinion.

    - Janet

  • Absolutely Wonderful
    Jonathan Kinsella help me with settling my Mother's estate. He walked me through the process step by step. He never made me feel like any of my questions were dumb, and I had a lot of questions. He always returned my phone calls promptly and would make time to see me when needed. I found everyone at the law firm friendly and easy to deal with. If you are ever in need of an attorney that handles elder care, call Jonathan. He was absolutely wonderful.

  • I found not only the knowledge and expertise I expected, but integrity, insight, and the heart of a caring friend and ally

    I am a widow with family scattered across the country and busy with their own careers and families. In other words, my sons can't come running when something happens to Mom. I used to worry a lot about the mental deficits that often come with aging. Now I feel completely secure with April Hill as my Power of Attorney. When I'm no longer able to manage alone, she will make sure my wishes are followed and my needs are met. She has all the information necessary to do this because she knew what questions to ask me in the beginning. My questions were answered promptly and fully, not in "legalese," but in language that I could easily understand. April explained fully the rationale behind every suggestion she made. She never rushed me into any decision, but took all the time necessary to make sure I understood the choices I was making. I recently recommended April to an elderly friend, and April has exceeded even my very high expectations in her care of my friend. In my view, April is an honest attorney who is super-smart and who puts her whole heart into taking the best possible care of her clients. She has also assembled a knowledgeable and extremely competent staff who have demonstrated their dedication to handling each case with the utmost care. I believed it was important to find a Certified Elder Law Attorney to do my estate planning, even though my assets are not significant. In April Hill I found not only the knowledge and expertise I expected, but integrity, insight, and the heart of a caring friend and ally.

  • Did a wonderful job - I couldn't be happier!
    While I am a personal injury attorney, I am also a CLIENT of April Hill. April handled my estate planning and did a wonderful job - I couldn't be happier! Thanks again, April. You've made me feel comfortable knowing that my affairs are in order and that my family will be taken care of.

    - Chelsie

  • Down to earth and yet very professional
    April Hill is a pleasure to do business with. She and her staff are very helpful and friendly. When you walk into the office you feel at home. Her #1 concern was what was best for our son and that was what was important to us. She handled all of the power of attorneys for us but as far as the trust fund, it was better for him to go with a special needs trust. I highly recommend her to you. She and her staff are down to earth and yet very professional. I wouldn't think twice about using her again.

    - Penny

  • Pleased with the outcome and have peace of mind.
    Frustrated over the health care system, the team at Hill & Kinsella could not have been more helpful and professional. With my mother in Florida and myself living out of state the Life Care Planning concept kept me focused and organized, not to mention well informed. Being a registered nurse from out of state, working with the Client Nurse Advocate made communications easy. Most importantly Mom is pleased with the outcome and we have peace of mind.

    - Betty

  • Not only is April highly knowledgeable and dedicated, she's caring and compassionate
    In 2007, I returned from two years of service in the Peace Corps to find that my mother had been undergoing changes I was not aware of while overseas. It turned out she had progressed to a moderate stage of dementia and was in an unhealthy situation at home. Over the next year, I had to have her formally diagnosed, take control of her personal affairs, and move her to an ALF. Fortunately, the director at the ALF recommended April Hill as a resource I should engage to assist in managing my mother's affairs, which I did starting from 2008. April proved to be invaluable and worth every dollar it cost to retain her services. She provided all the guidance necessary to procure the government's VA benefits to which my mother was entitled as well as to set up a plan for her long term care, including the eventual need for her transition to an excellent nursing home and enrollment in Medicaid when the increased cost of the nursing home exceeded my mother's financial assets. Not only is April highly knowledgeable and dedicated, she's caring and compassionate in those times of trouble with elderly relatives, which is so important and appreciated.

  • Even living on the opposite coast, she made it easy and stress-free!
    As a granddaughter left with the responsibility of caring for my grandmother, I needed advice from someone who could guide me through the process of applying for Medicaid, and setting up certain accounts that met the requirements of Medicaid. I found Ms. Hill through a mutual person. She immediately advised me of the proper steps to take to ensure a successful application to the state. I hired Ms. Hill as my grandmothers representative and was not disappointed! Even living on the opposite coast, she made it easy and stress-free! Thank you, April and your staff for all your assistance in my Grandmother's matter.

  • This is an excellent group, worthy of your trust
    My husband and I have reached the age whereby we were in need to have Estate Planning. Hill & Kinsella was suggested by trusted friends. When we met Ms. Hill and her staff, we were very comfortable and knew that the suggestions made were exactly what we were looking for: our protection in our efforts for Estate Planning. This is an excellent group, worthy of your trust.

    My mother has been especially on my mind lately, since she died two years ago Friday, and today it’s two years ago that we had her funeral.

  • After the conversation I had with you, I felt adequately prepared.
    I want to thank you for our interview a few weeks ago. This week my Elder Law classmates and I presented our attorney interviews, after the conversation I had with you, I felt adequately prepared and able to contribute to the conversation in class. I found that your words about living and working with intention resonated most with me. As a student looking to continue in Elder Law, I feel that I had a valuable discussion with not only an elder law attorney, but also a successful business woman. Thank you!

  • thorough, professional, and helped us resolve ways to be fair and equitable

  • I have worked with many attorneys in the past and have not experienced such service for such a reasonable fee.

    I have over the course of many years been required to update my will and the details of my estate planning and have used the resources of several attorneys in the process. I have never met or worked with an attorney as competent and thorough as April Hill. My sister has been recently placed in assisted living and I needed to set up a Revocable Trust as well as a Special Needs Trust. I am very fortunate to have met April Hill. This is why. First of all she is very generous with her time. On my first visit to her office in St. Petersburg she gave me a detailed analysis of the complexity involved with legal documents regarding my sister’s special needs. She outlined and clarified every legal distinction and definition regarding every question I asked her. She drew comprehensive graphs on a white board as a means of explaining points which I didn’t understand. But the thing which I found most satisfying was in the final work product of the Revocable Trust. In addition to the original documents, this financial instrument was presented to totally organized in a ring binder with every heading containing copies of all the many and varied documents tabulated and ordered all together. I am not an attorney and often feel at odds and uncertain regarding the rules and requirements pertaining to these important documents, thus the level of organization I found at the Hill & Kinsella, took an enormous amount of stress of me by virtue the completeness, attention to detail, and competence of the Hill & Kinsella. As aforementioned, I have worked with many attorneys in the past and have not experienced such service for such a reasonable fee. April Hill and Hill & Kinsella has my highest recommendation.

    - Doug

  • She offered solid reasons for her advice, and explained issues in a manner that was easily understood.
    Ms. Hill was exceptionally kind and thorough, and timely. She thought of things that I/we had not considered, and gave viable options and alternatives. She offered solid reasons for her advice, and explained issues in a manner that was easily understood. I freely encourage the use and services of Ms. Hill’s!

    - Joe

  • I was impressed by not only the professional and caring environment of their offices, but the attention to detail and personal attention that we received by the team.
    I went to Hill & Kinsella to have some legal documents drawn up and was impressed by not only the professional and caring environment of their offices, but the attention to detail and personal attention that we received by the team. I cannot compliment them enough on their handling of my needs and the expertise that they have provided which has helped me in dozens of ways. If you are looking for an elder law, probate, or life care planning specialist – I couldn’t recommend Hill & Kinsella any higher. They are the one you need to choose!

  • She talks about options and helps clients make the right decisions. Best elder law attorney ever! Caring and highly competent.
    I’ve worked with April Hill and her team for more than a decade. That includes recommending her law firm to many of my financial planning clients, who have also referred their friends. Plus, April has written my own estate documents and those of my new husband (both of us previously widowed). They are fantastic! April takes the time to really connect with clients. Explanations are jargon-free and meaningful. She talks about options and helps clients make the right decisions. Best elder law attorney ever! Caring and highly competent.
