Family Law Attorney Palmer E. Hurst
Attorney Palmer Hurst is a Hampton Roads native. Born and raised in Smithfield, Virginia, he attended Lynchburg College (now the University of Lynchburg) where he was a member of Sigma Nu Fraternity. After college, he worked in the office of Rep. Robert Hurt in Washington, D.C., and ran political campaigns.
Palmer then decided to make a career out of the law, attending Regent University for law school. At Regent, Palmer was Managing Editor of the Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy; and a member of two moot court teams. He even traveled to Oxford, England to compete in an international moot court competition, where he was recognized as one of the top oral advocates in the world, along with writing the second best brief. After graduating, he passed the Virginia bar on the first attempt.
When not in the office, Palmer can be found enjoying his two passions: backpacking and Olympic fencing.
