Our Firm


From its founding in 1975, Hines Norman Hines's mission remains

unchanged - to provide sophisticated and responsive legal services to

individuals and closely-held businesses.  We strive to achieve our

mission by associating a small group of highly qualified practitioners

who are attentive to each client’s specific needs and desires.


The initial concentration of much of our practice has been taxation and minimizing its impact on individuals and the businesses they own.  From estate planning to business development, operation, and divestiture, taxation and the overall protection and preservation of our clients’ wealth drives much of what we, at Hines Norman Hines, P.L., do.


As a natural extension of our tax practice, we offer services in the areas of estate planning, business law, employee benefits, real estate, international transactions, and elder law, among others.  In recent years, our firm has expanded significantly in the areas of estate, trust, and guardianship administration and litigation.  From our offices in South Tampa, North Tampa, and Sun City Center, we extend services to all of Tampa Bay, Pasco County, and Polk County.  In addition, we have a substantial client base in the Panhandle and Lee County, where frequent visits allow us to service the needs of our more geographically-distant clients.


Additionally, we at Hines Norman Hines, P.L. encourage clients to include their trusted advisors in the legal planning process. Accountant, Investment Advisor, Insurance Agent, or Bank Officer, each one brings a unique perspective and understanding of the client’s goals and desires.  We welcome that perspective and enjoy working with other professionals in striving for the same goal, efficient and courteous service to our client.  If we can be of service to you or your business, we welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your needs.
