In our latest blog post of the “Get to Know” series, we are featuring someone very near and dear to my heart. I know, I say that about everyone here, but Hillary just so happens to be my personal assistant and she is quite literally my right hand woman. I have never met someone so detail-oriented, so helpful and so dedicated to giving her best at work. It was fun for me to read a little more about someone I spend so much time with every day and I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know our Hillary too.
Ok so Hillary, I know you’re a transplant to Alabama; tell us a little about that.
I was born and raised in New England. I only recently moved around and got to see lots of different parts of the country that were new to me, but I chose to settle down in Baldwin County in 2021. Moving here was a great decision and I’m still learning about the people and places that make this area so special.
What made you go into the legal field and what’s your specific area of law/job role?
I began working in law offices by way of being a substitute daily reporter for a company that reported all of the civil complaints in the state I lived in at the time. I used to read and summarize hundreds of complaints in the Superior Court clerk’s office. It was so fascinating to read the details of the lawsuits. Soon after, I got my first job in a law office assisting attorneys. I have assisted in all kinds of legal areas, but I have been in probate and estate planning for the past few years and I’m very happy with it.
What are some of your hobbies?
In my free time, I like to read, cook and enjoy time with my orange tabby cat, Butterscotch (“Butters” for short). Alternatively, I am honing my angling skills and I spend a lot of time bass fishing with my boyfriend (I’m the girl with the pink rod and reel!).
What is the top item on your bucket list?
I want to vacation in Nantucket! I’m a big Elin Hilderbrand fan.
What’s your absolute favorite holiday and why?
Pretty much any holiday that involves lots of cooking and sharing meals with family and friends. I really love cooking the Italian food that I grew up with.
If you could describe Davis, Davis & Associates in three words, what would they be?
Supportive, motivating and high-quality. The attorneys and staff are very helpful and knowledgeable, with decades of combined experience. They are great at showing clients and staff how much they are appreciated!
