About Hill & Hamilton
The guiding principle at independent insurance agency H&H is to always put people before policies... our associates care deeply about the clients we work to protect on a daily basis. So when Westfield Insurance created its Legacy of Caring program, the mission aligned seamlessly with the culture that's existed at H&H since 1920. We're honored when clients like Mark Muirhead say "they're the type of individuals you can count on, and who honestly care about their clients from a business and personal standpoint." It's this caring approach that we feel is lacking too often in today's world, in any industry. And we're on a mission to change that, along with the help of like-minded organizations such as Westfield Insurance.
