Denae Hinson, General Assistant

That cheerful voice greeting our callers belongs to Denae, a born-and-raised Wilmington native. “Every time I move away, I always come back!” she laughs, citing the beach and family as main factors in her return.

Denae is glad to assist potential clients and understands many are facing hard times. “I ask every person what is going on and let them get as personal as they are comfortable doing,” she says. This can help facilitate the process so the attorneys are more prepared.

When not at work, Denae is trying to spend as much time as possible hiking nature trails with her two dogs: a pit bull named Dabby, and a Siberian Husky/Swiss Shepherd, Einstein. She also loves listening to Janis Joplin. “That’s my girl!” she exclaims. “She paved the way for other female artists.”

In the future, Denae plans on going to business school and dreams of one day opening her own bakery coffee shop.
