A lifelong North Carolinian, Hunter Koehl is proud to be the first college graduate in his family.  

His career path was set by the influence of several attorney role models and time spent mentoring school-aged youth involved in the criminal justice system. During law school, he was Editor-in-Chief of the Campbell Law Reporter podcast in its inaugural year, completed multiple internships, and received an award recognizing his more than 100 hours of pro bono legal service.

Before joining Hedrick Gardner, Hunter was awarded the Dixon Fellowship at Legal Aid of North Carolina. In this role, Hunter’s work as a staff attorney allowed him to represent clients in legal matters unique to low-income populations.

When not practicing law, Hunter enjoys cheering on the Hurricanes and Yankees, being outdoors, working out, and spending time with his dog, Fisher.
