After five years of practicing out of a Woodford County office, attorney Robert Claycomb is back in Hodgenville.
Claycomb, who graduated Transylvania University and the Salmon P. Chase College of Law, started his first practice in space above Smith’s Drugs in 1983. He spent several years in the Hodgenville area before moving his practice to Woodford County in 2006.
Claycomb said he decided it was time to move his office back “home” and settle down with a single practice based out of LaRue County.
In February, Claycomb purchased the former Hodgenville City Hall on North Lincoln Boulevard and is in the final stages of remodeling. According to Claycomb, the building is approximately 100 years old and was built by a lawyer, Claude Hudgins, for use as his personal residence. The old building had been home to a restaurant, City Hall and now a law office.
When Claycomb and his wife Lynn took ownership of the unique building, they did some “sprucing up.” All of the flooring, with the exception of the hallway has been replaced with rich maple hardwood that reflects beauty on the blue cottage-style home.
Claycomb plans to focus his work in estates, elder law, social security disability, real estate work and automobile accidents. He is also in the process of obtaining the ability to represent veterans’ benefit claims. His office is open from 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
