Brenton D. Hill

Managing Attorney - Abilene

Brenton D. Hill (“Brent”) was raised in Beaumont, Texas where he graduated from Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School. After high school, Brent attended Baylor University where he studied finance and was an active member of the Baylor Waterski Team, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2006.

After college, Brent remained in Waco to attend Baylor Law School, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2009. Brent began his legal career with a prominent Abilene law firm that same year, working primarily in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration and general business law.

Beginning in 2012, Brent began working in-house, representing banks in their capacity as a corporate fiduciary, with the majority of such time being at First Financial Trust in Abilene, where he ultimately rose to the level of Senior Vice President. During this time, Brent worked on hundreds of trust and estate administrations where he not only acquired a deep mastery of the legal issues associated with administering estate plans (both well-drafted and poorly drafted), but he also acquired thorough knowledge of the unique income tax, investment, oil & gas, and real estate issues present in estate planning and administration.

After over a decade in the trust business, Brent felt called to return to the traditional practice of law, joining B&T in May 2023, where he serves as the Managing Attorney of the Abilene office. Brent’s practice focuses on estate planning, probate, trust administration, and family law. Brent represents clients by drafting estate plans (both simple and complex), advising fiduciaries in matters of trust and estate administration, and represents both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in trust and estate disputes and litigation.

Additionally Brent’s past experience with estate and trust asset distribution has proven to have significant crossover into areas of family law, such as pre and post nuptial marital agreements and both simple and complex divorce related marital property settlement agreements.

Brent lives in Abilene with his wife and two children, where he is highly active in the community—being named one of Abilene’s top 20 professionals under the age of 40 by the Abilene Chamber of Commerce. Active on a number of boards, Brent currently serves as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Abilene Bar Association, Chairman of the Board of Trustees Global Samaritan Resources, Vice Chair of the Salvation Army Abilene Advisory Board, and Vice President of Finance for the Board of Frontier Texas.

The Blanchard & Thomas "Clients' Bill of Rights"

We Want To Earn The Right To Be Your Attorneys From Now On,
Not Just For The Duration Of Your Current Legal Issue.

We Aim to Win

We play to win. While we cannot guarantee outcomes in any case, we always do our best to see that our clients come out on top. We want our clients to know without question that their success matters to us personally.

Strategic Planning

We play hard, we play fast, and we stick to the game plan. We work with every client to develop a strategy most likely to bring about their success. We work hard to ensure the strategy gives our client every advantage possible and their very best chance at success. We then implement that strategy as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Honesty and Integrity

We build our relationships upon a foundation of total honesty. Absolute honesty allows the client and the attorney to develop trust that will be absolutely critical to success in and out of the courtroom.

Commitment To Communication

We make a commitment to communication. We begin and end many of our days communicating with clients. Our clients can count on us to return phone calls and/or e-mails within 24 to 48 hours except in emergencies or during announced absences from the office. We want our clients to know what we know and vice-versa. We want to ensure they can make informed decisions from start to finish.

Client Attorney Relationship

While the attorney client relationship may not always result in friendship, we believe it should always result in mutual respect. We zealously advocate on our clients’ behalf whether we agree with their choices or not. We do not judge our client’s choices; we simply attempt to help them learn from them, live with them, and overcome them.

Our Promise

We serve at the clients’ pleasure. If for any reason whatsoever the client decides he/she is better off with a different attorney or law firm, we will respectfully and professionally do whatever we can to get the new attorney or law firm up to speed and ready to handle the case. We vow to never object to a client’s request to seek alternative counsel, and we promise to return 100% of any unearned advance payments.
