As the lead member of the firm’s Title Insurance Group, Hall has recouped millions of dollars for his clients.

Hall’s goal is to help his clients reach an efficient resolution by providing early and updated assessments at each major step in the litigation process, which he has found helps his clients resolve disputes and focus their resources on what they do best – typically not litigating disputes. But, to be sure, Hall has tried cases successfully and enjoys the opportunity to help navigate his clients through trial and enjoys the challenges of formulating and implementing the best trial strategy with a constant focus on message, audience and delivery. His greatest sense of professional accomplishment is when he is able to distill and explain complicated factual and legal issues in a way that can be digested and processed efficiently by judges and juries alike.
