Today I start a new journey. After 13 years of working for the government and two private firms, I am now a construction lawyer in solo practice at The Law Office of Christopher G. Hill, PC. Like many solo lawyers, I make this jump with great excitement. My new contact information is:The Law Office of Christopher G. Hill, PC 4870 Sadler Road, Suite 300 Glen Allen, VA 23060 Phone: (804) 205-5155 Fax: (804) 205-5156
Why do this now? My time at the Virginia Attorney General’s Office and two private firms here in Richmond, Virginia gives me the skills, insight and experience necessary to take on the challenges and rewards of solo practice. My skill set and dedication to my clients remains the same and I will continue to represent the people and businesses that I have enjoyed representing, namely contractors, subcontractors and other construction and design professionals.
Also, by moving out on my own, I can provide a level of responsiveness and flexibility to my construction clients that is not available at a larger firm. By taking this step, I will be able to respond more rapidly to my clients’ issues and participate in a more direct way to manage their risk and help their construction business grow. By being able to use more flexible billing and other business practices, I can better tailor my representation of my construction clients to meet their business needs.
Finally, and most importantly, I need to thank several people that have been instrumental in my decision. First and foremost, my great family. Without their support, I could not have made this great move to start my own firm. Also, all of those attorneys, bloggers, contractors and other friends that have provided guidance and encouragement over the years. The names of these folks are way to numerous to list here, but I hope that you all know who you are.
So please check out the new firm and contact me with any questions, words of wisdom or thoughts that you may have. I look forward to continuing the conversation from my new vantage point as a solo construction lawyer at The Law Office of Christopher G. Hill, PC.
