John Hall - Best of the Best
John has represented my insureds in catastrophic matters for over 15 years now. He is very responsive having developed a first class litigation team that surrounds him. He is the most knowledgeable attorney that I deal with across the country. John understands the importance of providing excellent service at all levels, aside from his actual legal expertise, which is vital for the type of cases I handle and assign to counsel. I have seen John try numerous cases, and he is outstanding in trial. He has a commanding presence in the courtroom, and can connect with jurors from all walks of life. I handle cases from Los Angeles to Miami and still consider John as my home run hitter.

John Hall in the Elite of his class!
36 years as a claims professional working all across the country has put me in touch with Lawyers of the highest quality on both the Plaintiff and Defense sides. John Hall clearly stands out in my opinion as one of the best of the best. His reputation alone helps us resolve cases with catastrophic exposures. This reputation stems from his superlative ability in the court room. He comes to trial well prepared and has a remarkable ability to think on his feet when the inevetible unexpected adversity occurs. He can speak to jurors across the spectrum and is always well received. The judges respect him and even the most Plaintff oriented judge will give John a fair deal. John is experienced in catastrophic birth injury cases and is frequently hired by our cleints to assist local counsel in venues across the country. John is truly in the Elite of his Class and I recommned him with no reservations!
