On July 1, 1923, Alferd J. Hill and Vincent B. Morgan, both 1909 graduates of the University of Southern California School of Law, set out to practice law under the name of Hill & Morgan. Hill had already established himself as a highly accomplished attorney, after serving 10 years as the first County Counsel for the County of Los Angeles; Morgan was widely recognized as a superlative eminent domain lawyer. Two years later, the firm became known as Hill, Morgan & Bledsoe. Benjamin F. Bledsoe had been the then-youngest judge to be appointed to the Superior Court of the State of California. In 1945, the firm added William M. Farrer, a prominent corporate lawyer, as name partner to become Hill, Morgan & Farrer.
