Hill Ward Henderson started with a vision of a unique law firm — one that would combine the expansive talent, resources, capabilities and technologies of a larger firm with the responsiveness and personal attention of a smaller firm, to deliver powerful, personal service to every client.
This idea for an innovative, client-focused firm grew out of the longstanding relationships and collective experience of three of the area’s leading attorneys, Benjamin H. Hill, III, David E. Ward, Jr., and Thomas N. Henderson, III. Acting on this vision on May 1, 1986, the three attorneys, along with four others, established Hill Ward Henderson.
