Hunter G. Norton focuses his practice on business, construction, and civil litigation. Hunter is Florida Bar Board Certified in Business Litigation and counsels his clients on all phases of the litigation process. His work includes interviewing key witnesses during depositions, discovery, preparation of motions and other court-required documentation, pre-trial preparation, trial and mediation representation.

Prior to beginning his legal career, Hunter was a Non-Commissioned Officer in the United States Air Force. As an advanced intelligence briefer, Hunter researched, drafted, prepared, and delivered intelligence briefings to high-level officials, in addition to serving as an intelligence analyst and linguist. He later worked with a private company as a project manager responsible for the analysis and assessment of communication systems while authoring detailed intelligence training manuals. Both of these experiences have helped Hunter develop a working knowledge of the investigative and strategic thought processes associated with litigation and dispute resolution.

While in law school, Hunter served as the President of the Moot Court Board (2005-2006) and as a staff editor on the International & Comparative Law Review (2004-2006). He received the Thomas Ewald Litigation Skills Award recognizing Litigation Skill's Top Student, was a Dean's Merit Scholar, received a CALI Award for Advanced Moot Court and was named to "Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges." Hunter is a graduate with highest honors of the Airman Leadership School, Fort George G. Meade, MD.
