Greatest Defense EVER
Trustworthy, smart, and professional... The allegations against me were very scary and potentially life ruining. I am a freshly graduated Salisbury University student. I found that there were allegations of rape made against me by my coworker. I called around for help but ultimately made the right move by going with Mr. Hall. William had great knowledge and advice that got my family and I to get through our tough time, and his experience with the Eastern Shore and cases like mine proved to be crucial. What was a very serious and stressful situation quickly dissolved into NO CRIMINAL CHARGES against me. No criminal record, no court rooms, no nothing! Now I can get on with my life in peace. All the gratitude and thanks to William Hall. Simply the best.

Mr. Hall is the best!
I would recommend recommend William Hall in a heartbeat. My family had two serious cases in the last two years that could have landed each person in jail. But Mr. Hall took our cases, and with his knowledge of the law and the local court system, he was able to show the court that we had made minor, but unintentional mistakes regarding the law, and that fines were the more appropriate punishment in each case...and not jail time. Not only that, but William really treated us like he cared. I can sincerely say that He is a lawyer who is not chasing the money, and really fought for me and my family in court. If we had a question, he always called us back in a timely manner. He treats you with respect no matter what. When we need legal help there, the one attorney I call on Delmarva is William Hall.

Great Lawyer!
Our son was a college student at Salisbury University and was wrongfully charged with first degree rape, which can carry a life sentence! We knew on the advice of attorneys in our hometown to find a lawyer in the area who knew the way things worked in Wicomico County. Mr. Hall was a former prosecutor so he knows how both sides think, and he knows the judges! William worked diligently on our sons case through the help of a private detective and an expert witness to prove to the state that this was not a rape case at all and had the matter resolved to a simple misdamenaor with a "time served" sentence. All the other charges were dropped! William took the time to answer our questions and and kept us updated every step of the way! He never made us feel like we were bothering him and understood how difficult this was on our family. Most importantly, he genuninely cared about our son and was able to get him his freedom back! If you ever find yourself in any kind of trouble on the Eastern shore don't hesitate to call William Hall! We're sure glad we did!

Effective Attorney
Mr Hall represented my brother.. He went above and beyond. He was always in contact with my mother every step of the way never told her anything that wasn’t true. My family was so nervous but once he went to action everything was at ease. He talked with the DA and had them take a look at the evidence and the charges were dropped… He is a great man and serves justice!!!

DWI
Mr. Hall really helped me in a bad situation. I really thought I was going to jail on my second DWI and he kept me out of jail in Worcester County District Court. He has the insight and the experience with the local judges to deliver results that no one else can. If you ever need a great local lawyer call William Hall.

Nolle Prosequi
William Hall was the best decision I made on my unfortunate event. From start to finish he helped guide the way on everything I needed to do to ensure my case was resolved. The words "Nolle Prosequi" have been forever burned into my brain as that was the verdict I received at my case with Mr. Hall. Could not have done that without his expertise. Highly recommend him!

Highly recommend for Ocean City Maryland defense.
Hiring William was the only wise decision I made following an alcohol related arrest in ocean city Maryland. He Began to put my mind at ease from the very first phone call and was with me and very communicative every step of the way leading up to my court date. The outcome was even more favorable than I could have imagined. William is professional, hard working, and has both the experience and connections that are crucial in dealing with the ocean city Maryland judicial system. If Seacrets or this great town ever get the better of you, I highly recommend hiring William to defend you and help get your life back on track.

Best DUI/DWI Lawyer..HANDS DOWN!! Mr. Hall is a ROCKSTAR! (WORTH THE READ)
Honestly, HIRE HIM ASAP! I was a complete mess after my arrest since this was my 3rd DUI arrest but Mr. Hall is super easy going and put my mind at ease. There were some grey areas in my case and I did not blow or take the field tests but I was still expecting some probation, community service and having to wear the ankle bracelet for an amount of time but that wasn't the case! Mr. Hall walked in there like the Zorro of lawyers and tore my case apart. Slicing and dicing the prosecution providing more than enough reasonable doubt in my case that the judge had no other choice to find me NOT GUILTY! I can't recommend him enough!! Don't think about it, JUST HIRE HIM!! Thanks again, Mr. Hall!!!

Unbelievable
Mr. Hall put me at ease and let me know that I was going to be fine, I was so worried that I would have a hefty fine and cause major family issues behind my own poor decision making. Because he knows the people involved and is a local, he got me the best result in what could’ve been an ugly situation! He is the man you want, and can trust. Had he not sent a free consultation and just sent letters like other OCMD lawyers I don’t know if he would have been my first call. But that consultation service and the consultation itself made me realize this man is honest and sincere. Hire hire hire

Case closed. In and out!
I hired William based on the reviews on avvo and I’m so happy that I did. I was not quite sure what to expect when my court date arrived. He calmed my nerves and assured me that my case would be handled easily. When I arrived in court, I think my case was less than 5 minutes. This man definitely knows what he is doing! This all took place during the COVID 19 pandemic as well. Very professional attorney. If you don’t want the truth from William, then don’t ask.
