Andalusia has a new attorney in town.

Jeremy Hancock recently relocated to Andalusia.

“We lived in Louisiana, where I taught and took a break from practicing,” he said. “I was a special education teacher.”

Hancock said he has a master’s degree in education and is a certified teacher.

He said he became a lawyer because he wanted to further his education.

“I love education,” he said.

He’s been certified as an attorney for 15 years and has practiced for 11 of those years.

He earned his juris doctorate from the Birmingham School of Law.

Hancock said he and his family came to Andalusia after they didn’t want to move back to Cullman.

“My wife retired,” he said. “And we wanted something different and we didn’t want to go back to North Alabama.”

Hancock said he had come to Andalusia fox hunting several times in his younger days.

“I knew where Andalusia was on the map,” he said. “I also spent my early teens in Dale County deer hunting. I like the southern part of the state, and my wife loves the close proximity to the Gulf.”

Hancock said moving to a different state was a good experience, but there is nothing like being with Alabama people.”

Hancock specializes in bankruptcy, criminal, divorce and person injury law.

“I’m excited to be here,” he said. “We are excited to have a new place to live. I want to help my new clients with their issues that arise, and understand that no two issues are the same.”

His office, located at 103 East Pass Road, is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

He can be reached at 222-5297.
