Firm History

In 1967, what would later become Horton, Lee, Burnett, Peacock, Cleveland, & Grainger, was established by two founding partners, Cooper Horton, Jr. and H.B. Lee, Jr. These men shared a dream of developing a prominent accounting firm, one distinguished in the Birmingham business community for its excellence in technical knowledge and client service.

With a solid beginning and a steady growth rate, Horton and Lee were quickly able to add partners Lamar Peacock, Grover Cleveland, and Thomas Grainger. In subsequent years, and as a result of our steady growth rate, the firm was able to add partners H.B. Lee III, Patricia Oh and Brian Burnett— all Certified Public Accounts who shared their vision of excellence. With professional and support staff members, HLB has become one of the top level CPA firms in Birmingham, Alabama.

Because of our firm’s size and the specialized talents of our professionals, we have the ability to serve a group of clients diverse in size, industry, and accounting requirements. These clients include:

  • Real estate developer
  • Commercial property owners
  • Multi-family residential owners
  • Property management companies
  • Manufacturing and distribution
  • Retirement and employee benefit plans
  • Construction
  • Healthcare
  • Government entities
  • Retail and restaurants
  • Not-for-profit entities

By consistently developing our client base over the years and carefully controlling our growth, our sound management and financial strength has given us the reliability we need to foster long-lasting client relationships. Because of this, many of our clients throughout the state and across the Southeast have been with us since the firm began, a striking testimony to both our stability and our commitment to service.


More than pencil pushers, real CPAs working for you.
