Providing experienced legal services in a caring and compassionate manner to every client
Jillian E. Barton
Jillian's first legal internship during law school was spent working alongside Maureen Anderson learning about the various areas of elder law. Now, nearly 10 years later, she is thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside Maureen again, assisting clients exclusively in the areas of probate and estate administration.
Before she even set foot in law school, Jillian knew she wanted to serve clients in these areas. After experiencing losses of her own and years of watching family and friends scramble to work through the loss of a loved one, she realized that she wanted to help clients properly prepare for life's challenges and navigate the often-difficult estate administration process. She has dedicated her career to doing so. Jillian understands that the loss of a parent, child, sibling or loved one is difficult enough without the added burden of the legal process that follows a loss. This passion, coupled with her professional experience, allows Jillian to provide compassion, understanding and in-depth knowledge to her clients. From probate to distributing and closing the estate, Jillian is there every step of the way.
Jillian earned her B.A. in English and Philosophy from West Chester University. She later earned her J.D. from Villanova Law and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 2016. Her internship and clinical experiences during law school were tailored to the various areas of elder law. After law school, Jillian joined a well-respected firm in Hatboro, where she dedicated her practice to estate planning and estate administration matters. She remained there until February 2021, when she started her own law firm in Horsham, again focusing exclusively in these same areas. Alongside her practice, Jillian serves as Special Counsel to Maureen L. Anderson Elder Law assisting clients in the areas of probate and estate administration in Philadelphia, and in Bucks, Montgomery and nearby Counties. She looks forward to working with you and providing you with the experience and compassion you deserve.
