Athens Native. Husband. Father. Attorney.
A. Kamau Hull was born and raised in Athens, Georgia. A third-generation product of Clarke County schools, he attended the East Athens Childhood Development Center, Fowler Drive Elementary, and Clarke and Hilsman Middle schools. In 2000, Hull graduated from Cedar Shoals High School, where he was a standout athlete in football, track, and basketball.
Hull earned his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and mathematics from the Virginia Military Institute with minors in Mathematics and English. After working in the engineering field for a time, Hull pursued a legal career at the University of Georgia School of Law. He completed his law degree at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, where he was a published member of the Law Journal, served as a student ambassador, peer mentor and vice president of the Sports & Entertainment Law Society.
Following law school and with a desire to serve the city of his birth and his heart, Kamau and his wife, Nicole, founded The Hull Firm, LLC, in Athens. The firm specializes in family law, estate planning and probate, business law and mediation services. Hull is also a child welfare attorney and an advocate for children, having been appointed many times as a guardian ad litem—determining what is in a child’s best interest.
Kamau is strongly connected to the Athens community. He has served as a member of the Whit Davis School Council, Whit Davis PTO, secretary of the Parent Attorney Advocacy Committee, and as a trainer for the Clarke Central High School Peer Mediation Program. He also was a member of the ESPLOST 5 Steering Committee (2016) for Athens-Clarke County, and serves on the boards of Chess & Community, the Western Judicial Circuit Bar Association, and as secretary of the Cedar Creek Civic Association.
Kamau represented his fraternity (Omega Psi Phi) on the Athens Alumni Chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and is a chairperson of the steering committee for the annual Athens Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Kamau is also a percussionist at historic Hill Chapel Baptist Church, where he and his wife, Nicole, lead the marriage ministry. He has served as a coach for various youth sports teams.
Kamau and Nicole have two sons—Jocko, 13, and Tristan, 11—at Hilsman Middle School; their youngest, Trendon, is 3.
Kamau has always been a servant leader--a value instilled in him by his parents, Cynthia and Greg. Kamau was taught to make sure that others were taken care of before he took care of himself, and that it is more important to build one another up than tear one another down.
