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.

In 1999 Mr. Gilmore was admitted to the Tennessee State Bar and began focusing much of his practice on discrimination cases against various automobile finance companies. 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.
