About me


I am the founding principal of Hall Benefits Law (HBL), an employee benefits law firm specializing in retirement plans, health and welfare benefits, and executive compensation legal services.  HBL also assists companies with health care reform, fiduciary liability issues, and qualified domestic relations orders. The mission of HBL is to provide comprehensive employee benefits and executive compensation services that exceed client expectations and are affordable. 



Prior to founding HBL, I practiced ERISA law for more than six years with two of Atlanta's largest law firms.  I earned my Juris Doctor from the University of Alabama School of Law in 2006, and a Master of Laws in Taxation, with distinction, from Georgetown University Law Center in 2007. I earned a Master of Science in International Development from the University of Bath in 2001 and a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Economics, magna cum laude, in 2000 from Birmingham-Southern College.
