Hill & Watchko

Sarah R. Watchko’s practice areas include elder law and estate planning, Medicaid benefits for nursing home care and Department of Veterans Affairs pension benefits, special needs planning, and trust and estate administration. Sarah was selected for inclusion in the 2018 Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” in the area of Elder Law. Each year, no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor. She is also one of very few Georgia Certified Elder Law Attorneys (“CELA”) by the National Elder Law Foundation, the only national certifying program for elder law and special needs attorneys, and serves on the Board of Directors for Georgia's chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

Sarah developed a passion for working with elderly and special needs clients at Wake Forest School of Law’s Elder Law Clinic during the summer of 2007. Upon graduation, this led her to Atlanta Legal Aid’s Georgia Senior Legal Hotline, where she volunteered and eventually worked as a staff attorney from 2008 – 2009. In 2009, she joined attorney Steve DeBaun in his estate planning and elder law practice. In 2013, Sarah made the difficult decision to leave Mr. DeBaun’s practice and start a new path at Bettis, Hill, & Vann (now Hill & Watchko), a firm focusing primarily on those individuals she wished to serve.

Firm Description

Our primary goal at Hill & Watchko, LLC is to be the best in our field, as it relates to the level of service we provide, the quality of the work we produce, and the value we deliver to our clients.

We believe that estate planning, elder law, special needs planning, trust and estate administration, business planning, and related services are more than just the production of documents. We are not LegalZoom™. Rather, we see ourselves as counselors and advisors who help you develop the best plan for your loved ones. We see planning as an act of love and responsibility taken by those who care deeply about their families, friends, and organizations and who desire to leave a lasting legacy.  Our clients put their trust in us with this life altering planning, and we take that trust seriously.

Our mission is to help our clients plan for and protect the significant things in their lives: the people and organizations they love and the assets they have worked diligently to acquire, and to do so through our four fundamental values: compassionate, client-first service; an easy and efficient client experience; the highest quality of work product; and creative, comprehensive, and individualized advice.
