George Hartline, ATTORNEY | 256-323-0697


"My first passion was music and is still the heart of my life. I have performed in various bands from the Million Dollar Band during my time at the University of Alabama to the Billboard-charting band The Harmless Doves ( This will always be a big part of my life, including helping others in the entertainment industry reach their goals."

Problem Solver​​

"I like to call myself a problem solver, and not a lawyer. Sometimes people have their own feelings about the word 'lawyer' and I understand that feeling; the profession gets a bad reputation sometimes thanks to a few bad actors. But my philosophy is I am a problem solver- you come to me because you have an issue that needs to be fixed, and I enjoy doing that for you. As a business owner as well (, this often involves helping and consulting for businesses." -George Hartline
