As a second generation attorney, C. Cleveland Hummel, was raised in and around the law. Since returning to his hometown of Bloomsburg in 1979 to practice law, he has served his community as an Assistant Public Defender, a Hearing Officer under the Older Adult Protective Services Act, Solicitor for a number of communities in Columbia County, and as a member of the Montour Township Planning Commission in addition to service as past president and board member of numerous local non-profit organizations and service clubs as varied from Rotary to Little League, to the Bloomsburg-area Community Foundation.

Throughout the many years of his practice, Mr. Hummel takes his greatest pride and he receives the most satisfaction from representing the elderly and injured working to assist them in receiving the awards and benefits they need to put their lives back together as a result of injury or illness and providing them with planning advice to preserve their assets to allow them to pass their lifelong savings to their children and grandchildren.

As a lifelong member of the Bloomsburg community, Mr. Hummel has represented his clients, friends and neighbors in the purchase of their homes, starting businesses, protecting their rights related to their jobs, representing them in Workers Compensation matters, social security disability claims and fighting for unemployment compensation benefits to which they are entitled, the preparation of their wills and the probate of their estates for their families.

Mr. Hummel takes pride in representing individuals and families as opposed to insurance companies.
