Hill Law Firm Team

Our Location

Our firm is located at 200 E 4th Street in a 100-year-old historic building known as the William H. Long House that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. (It is also sometimes referred to as the Joyner House.) Once the personal estate of William Henry Long, a former mayor of Greenville, the two-story brick home was built in a Classical Revival Style in the early 1900s but was renovated in 1980 to house law offices. Long, who was also an attorney, was known for his legal counsel and the building remains “the residence of a lawyer” as the home of Hill Law Firm.

Hill Law Firm Historic BuildingIn 1984, Myron T. Hill, Jr. began his law career working for Federal Judge Howard, who purchased the building in 1980. Judge Howard maintained a thriving practice in the building until he became a federal judge in 1987. Already a partner, Hill continued working in the building with other partners until 2010 when he decided to open his solo practice: Hill Law Firm. Hill purchased the building where his career began in 2014 and believes that it will continue to be a professional homebase for him and the clients he serves for years to come.
