Attorneys at Law


Johnston Hinesley PC was founded in 1978 as the first law firm in southeast Alabama specializing in a practice dedicated to tax, business, and commercial transactions.

Our firm has intentionally limited the focus of our offered services to business and tax-related matters and individual tax and asset planning. We believe our firm offers a unique environment for our clients where they may establish new businesses, maintain and improve existing businesses and protect their hard-earned assets.

We have offered counsel to multi-national conglomerates as well as domestic and foreign corporations. We are capable of providing and have provided legal services to clients on a variety of complex business transactions. Our attorneys have extensive experience in the areas of individual and corporate taxation, mergers and acquisitions, securities, real estate, corporate law and other business-related areas. Our firm has acted as bond counsel on tax exempt bonds for industrial development projects as well as municipal tax exempt issues.
