Hill Hill Carter recently celebrated its 95th Anniversary. In 1924, Thomas B. Hill, Jr., began his practice in a building with no air conditioning. In 1931 his brother, William Inge Hill, joined the practice, setting the wheels in motion for what would become one of Montgomery’s most highly regarded legal institutions.
“Hill Hill Carter has proudly served Alabama and the southeast for 95 years,” said Managing Shareholder David W. Henderson. “During that time, the legal industry has changed considerably, and many firms have come and gone, but Hill Hill Carter has remained a strong, mid-sized firm dedicated to excellence and the highest professional standards of practice and conduct.”
Though there have been changes in the 95 years since the firm was started, the founding principles of providing excellent legal advice, a respectful workplace, and a commitment to the community remains solidly in place today. The newest members of the firm embrace the same guiding principles of excellence and integrity, which have made the firm thrive since its inception. The firm has expanded from one office location to four to include offices in Fairhope and Birmingham, Alabama, as well as Louisville, Kentucky. Over the years, the firm has also broadened its areas of practice to include commercial and complex litigation, health care cost recovery, and education, along with its existing practice areas of insurance defense, employment litigation, and workers’ compensation, to name a few.
“Hill Hill Carter has always been a firm where clients could expect exceptional legal services,” said David W. Henderson. “As we look to the next 95 years, we are confident that the characteristics that have defined the firm as a top tier law firm will be continued by the next generation of Hill Hill Carter attorneys and staff.”
