Myron T. Hill, Jr. Reaches 30 Year Mark as The Hill Law Firm, PC

On August 1, 2014, attorney Myron T. Hill, Jr. celebrated his thirtieth year practicing law in Greenville. In August of 1984, after completing his undergraduate degree at Duke University and earning his law degree at Wake Forest University, he began his career as a state and federal criminal defense lawyer as an associate with Howard, Browning, Sams & Poole. Only two years later, Myron was made partner and the firm eventually transitioned to Browning & Hill, L.L.P. Thirty years later, he continues to practice law in the historic William H. Long House (c. 1917), an iconic home listed in the National Register for Historic Places, for which he has grown a deep rooted affection. He is currently in the process of acquiring full ownership of the building with plans for providing renovated office spaces in the growing Uptown Greenville area. The building is located at the intersection of 4th and Cotanche Streets.
The firm transitioned to The Hill Law Firm, PC in April of this year. Throughout its existence, the firm has produced a Federal United States District Court Judge, a North Carolina Supreme Court Justice, a Federal United States Magistrate Judge and a North Carolina District Court Judge, demonstrating an esteemed legacy of excellence and expertise.
Such knowledge and experience, coupled with natural insight and skill, has afforded Mr. Hill success when defending clients who face criminal charges. He meets in person with each client to determine what action might best benefit the client, giving careful consideration to both their circumstances and charges. He specializes in the representation of individuals charged with crimes in the federal and state systems in Eastern North Carolina. These include both misdemeanors and felonies.
During his career, Myron has been honored with many awards including an AV Preeminent rating with Martindale-Hubble, North Carolina Best Lawyers, U.S. News Best Lawyers, Super Lawyer and North Carolina Legal Elite. He was asked to serve on the North Carolina Board of Ethics and served as a Panel Representative for the Federal Criminal Justice Act.
