Paul Hilton

 Goals • Service • Consistency 

You never know when a simple conversation becomes a tipping point for your life. Years before my friend Scott became my mentor; he was a fellow Marine. We collaborated on work projects, and through the grapevine, I heard that Scott was pursuing a law degree at night. Later on, fate brought us together again after we both retired from the Marines and worked together with Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. During our time there, I appreciated and respected his knowledge and confidence in legal matters. We worked together on various projects over the years, and Scott approached me on pursuing a law degree. That question changed the narrative of my career path. The lesson that I discovered is that it is necessary to keep learning. Just merely starting with a little step results in accomplishing considerable, impactful outcomes for your life.

I am not afraid of a challenge and when I decided to pursue a law degree at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, I was up for the task. This career change was not something that I took lightly as the drive behind the “why” for my venture is to serve others. Scott guided me throughout the requirements and encouraged me during each step. I went on to graduate with honors and finished the bar exam on the first try five years later. For each personal goal, I do what is required to be successful and to achieve the objectives that I set for myself. A 2018 Magna Cum Laude graduate of Thomas Jefferson School of Law, I am now an Estate Planning and Elderly Care lawyer in the San Diego area.
