About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

     Robert Hemphill has been practicing personal injury law in Winter Park since 1997.  Upon graduating from the University of Florida with an Honors Degree in Finance in 1993, he furthered his education at the University of Florida College of Law.  Originally he hoped to utilize his Finance degree as a basis to study and practice corporate law.  However, after various opportunities in law school, he became interested in civil litigation and personal injury law. 

     Summer Clerkships with Orange County Circuit Judge, Hon. Walter Komanski, and the law firm of Martinez & Dalton, P.A. exposed him to the world of personal injury litigation.   After graduating from the University of Florida College of Law with honors, Mr. Hemphill took a job as an associate with the prestigious Winter Park law firm of Troutman, Williams, et al.  He honed his skills at the Troutman firm working with some of the best trial lawyers in the State of Florida.  He became a partner with the firm in 2003 and continued to represent victims of auto accidents until he became a founding partner of the law firm of Cullen & Hemphill, PLC in 2011.          

     Mr. Hemphill and his law partner, Kim Cullen, continue to practice personal injury law in their Winter Park office.  They are proud to have practiced only personal injury law on behalf of individuals.  “In the adversarial system of justice it is important that individuals and families have competent counsel to represent their interests against powerful businesses and insurance companies. “  Hemphill said. “Nothing gives me more satisfaction than being able to help someone who has been seriously injured.  It is very rewarding to lift the burden of dealing with the insurance companies from them and allow them to focus on getting healthy and returning to their pre-accident lifestyle.”

     When he is not practicing law Mr. Hemphill enjoys traveling, playing golf, and spending time with his wife, Julie and Daughters, Lindsay and Allison.  He and his wife are also very active in their community of Baldwin Park.  They are co-founders and charter Board Members of a non-profit company called Brightside Events.  Brightside Events organizes various events and donates 100% of the proceeds generated at the events to its Stock The Pantry program that helps supply food to needy children during extended breaks when they are unable to take advantage of the free lunch program.  One of the most popular events they organize is the Doggie Derby of Baldwin Park.  The canine race was inspired the Hemphills' dog, Foster.

Exceeded My Expectations
I had the opportunity to work with the Cullen & Hemphill law firm recently and it was an amazing experience. First off I know that these are seasoned attorneys with a legal team that has just as many years of experience. I worked often with Mindy and she is extremely sweet but a bull dog with the insurance companies, in other words, she fights for her clients. I highly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case.

If you need a good attorney call him.. Mindy Jackson. Nice they explain to you what's going on they give you updates if you need anything all you have to do is call them. Great attorney. Did all they could for me. I never had to do anything but call or email them to get up dates. By far the nicest attorney.

Highly Recommend
I was injured in a car accident and did not know what to do next until I called Cullen & Hemphill. The lawyers patiently walked me through what needed to be done involving doctor appointments, medical questions and legal documents. Robert Hemphill made a stressful time much easier and gave me piece of mind. He always responded to me wether I had a question or concern in a timely matter; he is knowledgable and trustworthy. He did a great job in fighting for my medical needs and protecting my interests. The whole office is welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend working with Cullen & Hemphill for your legal needs.

This review is on behalf of all my family. Mr Hemphill has helped us individually for different cases/years/matters. Suffice to say we Trust him and we are very pleased with his work. He has made a very critical difference in my future, The level of his legal council helped me stay POSITIVE. Our case manager, Mindy J. was very knowledgeable and kept us informed about our case. She was very pleasant to speak with and she always knew about our case , it wasn't like other places where the case manager doesn't even know at least some of the pertinent details of your case. David, case manager as well, he is also very professional and we had the pleasure to work with him at some point, and the professionalism was always there. We were very impressed with their people skills, their caring attitudes and the attention to our needs. Please NOTE* Neither member of my family is receiving any type of money or compensation of any kind for this POST/REVIEW. We only want to express and let people know how grateful and pleased we are with the results of our case. We hope that Mr. Hemphill and his staff can help you as well as they have helped us.

Wonderful trustworthy
I was injured in an automobile accident and hired a large advertising law firm to help me. After years of getting the run around and getting nowhere I decided to change attorneys and hire attorney Robert Hemphill of the law firm of Cullen & Hemphill, plc. I was amazed by the level of service they provided me compared to my previous law firm. Mr. Hemphill met with me personally on multiple occasions and spoke with me several times on the phone to make sure I understood the complicated process. Within a few short months Cullen & Hemphill, plc was able to resolve my case with terms that were favorable to me. Mr. Hemphill and his case manager, Mindy, treated me like family. They were always available and willing to answer my questions. I highly recommend this personal injury law firm. They will make you feel comfortable, treat with you respect, and will work hard to maximize your recovery.

Timely and Professional
I had a lawyer previous to Mr. Hemphill. My case went no where for almost 4 years. As soon as Mr. Hemphill got my case things began to move VERY quickly. I had moved out of state and he, along with his staff, worked very hard to accommodate me in every way. He was extremely professional and my case ended successfully. I would definitely recommend him to any and everyone. He was amazing!!

BEST Lawyer in Central Florida
Mr. Hemphill is truly the best at what he does, my mother knew as soon as it was time to hire a lawyer for my personal injury case Mr. Hemphill would be that individual to represent me. My mother worked with Mr. Hemphill previously professionally and knew he was the best man for the job. I suffered multiple injuries in an automobile accident and underwent surgery for one of those injuries. Mr. Hemphill truly had my best interest at heart! I can recall to the day of my schedule surgery that was scheduled for 7 AM & Mr. Hemphill called me at 5:30 AM to wish me a successful surgery & a speedy recovery. In that very moment I knew that he wasn’t just a great Lawyer but a sincere person. Eventually my case would settle & Mr. Hemphill was able to recover what I was entitled to financially. If you’re seeing for a Lawyer that’s going to do everything rite by you & have your best interest at heart Mr. Hemphill is the idle choice. Mr. Hemphill is a family man, great person and a remarkable Lawyer. If you’re seeking a Lawyer in the Central Florida area please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Hemphill.
