Robert E. Hempson

Charlotte, North Carolina

I received my undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Tennessee in 1975.  I went on to graduate from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1978.  I served for several years as managing attorney for Appalachian Research and Defense Fund, a legal aid office in Kentucky, and as managing attorney for Legal Services of Southern Piedmont, a legal aid office in Charlotte, North Carolina.  I entered private practice in 1995.

While practicing law in Kentucky and North Carolina, I represented clients in class action lawsuits, as well as individual matters.  I have appeared before judges and magistrates in many different forums, including administrative proceedings, military tribunals, state court actions, and federal court matters, all on both an original and appellate basis. 

I am a Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law, having fulfilled all the requirements established by the North Carolina State Bar.
