Our Firm's History

Established in 1969 as Hunter, Pattillo, Powell & Carroll, P.A., and soon growing into Hunter, Pattillo, Marchman & Sanders, the firm became one of civic responsibility and awareness, encouraging its partners to take an active role in both politics and government, supporting the Honorable Rom W. Powell in his successful bid for Orange County Circuit Court and supporting both Daniel M. Hunter and Kenneth R. Marchman as they successfully campaigned and served as Mayor of the City of Winter Park. The firm believes in informed civic involvement.

In 1999, the firm became Hunter & Marchman, P. A. and continues today to serve the citizens of Winter Park and surrounding counties in many aspects of the law, including Estate Planning, Probate, Real Estate transactions, Civil litigation, Foreclosure defense, and Ecclesiastical Law.
