Wyman O. Gilmore, Jr., graduated from the University of Alabama in 1980 and Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 1983. He returned home to Grove Hill and began practicing with his father and sister in 1983. His early practice consisted of a variety of cases, ranging from divorces, and workers’ compensation to accidents, probate, criminal and land cases. Though the years, his practice evolved into primarily representing individuals and consumers in personal injury, fraud and wrongful death cases. He has taken on such adversaries as Life of Georgia, New York Life, Liberty National, Woodmen of the World, Alabama Power, Weyerhaeuser, Scotch Lumber Company, and United Insurance Company.

From 2002 to 2005 Mr. Gilmore and his family relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where he and associate counsel worked toward concluding these automobile finance discrimination cases. Mr. Gilmore has now returned to his home in Grove Hill where he plans to practice for the remainder of his career.
