Campione & Hackney, P.A. Is Born

The good news is that the new name for the firm is Campione & Hackney, P.A.  Our offices remain in Tavares, Florida with the same telephone and fax numbers as before.  The three remaining lawyers in the firm will continue to provide a full range of legal services in most areas, including business law, real estate transactions, probate, guardianships, related litigation, and appeals.

The new website is www.campionehackney.com

The bad news is that Robert Vason has decided to leave the firm.  He will continue to practice law at his office in downtown Mount Dora, Florida.  He will be missed and we wish him the best of luck.


I’m pleased to announce that I am now a partner at Campione & Vason, P.A. We have two locations — Mount Dora and Tavares. My office is at 2750 Dora Avenue, Tavares, Florida 32778. My phone number is now (352) 343-4561. The fax is (352) 343-7456. My email address is still hthackney@harryhackney.com, but I should have new email address at the www.campionevason.com domain later today.

I will be focusing on litigation and my new partners will continue to handle real property, business law, trusts, estates, and probate.

The following is the office location. Unfortunately, the latest images on Google Earth haven’t kept pace with the changes in this area. We’re directly behind the new Kohl’s department store, which I’ve marked on the map. There are also buildings to the right and left of our building that aren’t shown on the map.

I’m Moving

The afternoon of Friday, September 26, 2008 I will be relocating to a new office in Tavares. I’ll be open for business in the new location first thing Monday, September 29, 2008.  As part of the move, I will be joining David Campione and Robert Vason and practicing under the name of Campione & Vason, P.A.   The new firm will have four lawyers and will provide a full range of legal services in all areas, including business law, real estate transactions, probate, guardianships, related litigation, and appeals. For my part, I’ll be concentrating solely on litigation and appeals. In other words, I’ll be going back to my roots.   I’m looking forward to the move and reconcentrating on litigation.

Telephone and Fax Status

In keeping with the idea of using this blog not only to enlighten people about legal issues of interest but also to inform clients, I’m afraid that the office telephone, fax, and Internet lines are all out of service today, which is August 22, 2008.  The voicemail, which is provided through the telephone company, continues to work so you can leave voicemail messages.  I can still access the voicemail from my cell phone.  So if you call, please do leave a message.

Vacation Notice

When I established this blog, one of the things I said I would do is inform people of office events.  This is my first, but not my last, post about office news and scheduling.  The week of June 23 to June 27, 2008 Linda will be out of the office.  I have a trial Tuesday so I’ll be preparing all day Monday and trying the case all day Tuesday.  I then have various hearings and depositions the rest of the week. Consequently, no one will be answering the phone this week.  If you call, please leave a message and I’ll call you back.  My office hours will also be unpredictable.  Thankfully Linda returns on June 30.
