He is the senior partner at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP, where he practices Personal Injury and Workers· Compensation Law.

He was a member of the NCAJ Board of Governors from 2006-2021 and a five-time recipient of the organization's Order of Service, given to members for generous contribution of service in advancing the NCAJ's mission of protecting people's rights. He is also a recipient of the Ebbie Award, given by the President of the NCAJ to members in recognition of service and inspired commitment to the organization.

Hank has been accepted for Membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Only attorneys who have had a case or trial which resulted in a verdict or settlement in the amount of one million dollars or more may become members.*

Hank was selected for inclusion in the list of North Carolina Super Lawyers® in 2010, 2012-2017, and 2019-2023.

He was included in the 2016-2023 editions of Best Lawyers in America for Workers Compensation Law-Claimants.

Hank was an Assistant County Attorney for Buncombe County in 1980-81, and in 1987 he was appointed Buncombe County Public Guardian. He retired from that position in 2007 after 20 years of service to incompetent adults and mentally disabled Veterans in Buncombe County and across North Carolina.

*Each case is different, so not all information on this website, as well as some which may not be provided, will apply to every case. Because the facts and relevant laws are different from case to case, Grimes Teich Anderson does not guarantee that the outcome, results, or experiences with one lawyer or one case will be similar to another.

Except for Employment Law Cases, Attorney's fees are a percentage of the entire recovery and will be deducted before other expenses. In addition to the fee in these cases, Client will be responsible for litigation expenses, which will either be deducted from the recovery or paid by the client. Some Employment Law Cases may be handled on a contingency fee basis and others handled on an hourly basis, where the client is billed for the hours spent on the case. Based on our experience, we will advise you of the most appropriate fee arrangement in Employment Law cases.
