Firm History

Cleveland Hinton Law builds on a legacy of service to Pickens County dating back nearly 55 years.

In 1944, Bill Acker opened a law firm in his hometown of Pickens, SC, named “William G. Acker Law Firm.”  By 1968, his nephew, Ken Acker, joined the practice, and the firm became known as “Acker and Acker.”

Over time, other local attorneys joined Acker and Acker.  Ken continued to work alongside his uncle and law partners in that firm for over twenty years.
