JILLIAN HISHAW AS AN
Jillian Hishaw, is an agricultural attorney, founder, and C.E.O. of F.A.R.M.S and Hishaw Law L.L.C., a law virtual practice. Inspired by her own family’s land loss, this international non-profit provides technical and legal assistance to small farmers, while reducing hunger in the farmer’s community. Hishaw’s first book, Don’t Bet the Farm on Medicaid, examines how U.S. long-term care facilities can exercise their federal authority to place a lien on a resident’s property, forcing the sale of an outstanding debt, if owed.

I have experienced the privilege of working with Jillian for over the past two years. Jillian is one of the most impressive people I have ever met. Her deep knowledge of Agriculture and Legal acumen related to Farm ownership seems fathomless. I find her genuine compassion for farmers and her desire to insure their success even more intriguing and admirable.
