Bob Hord was a go-to Charlotte business and real estate lawyer and a wonderful man. Bob was a Charlotte native and alumnus of Myers Park High School, Davidson College, and the University of North Carolina School of Law. After graduating from UNC School of Law in 1965, Bob served in the US Army achieving the rank of First Lieutenant, and returned to Charlotte in 1967 to begin his law career, practicing with Fairley, Hamrick, Montieth, and Cobb.
After practicing in the Charlotte area for over two decades, Bob joined Miller, Johnston, Taylor, & Allison in 1988. In 1997, the practice became known as Johnston, Allison, & Hord P.A. and Bob became a name partner of the firm.
