Stephen Hall changed my life.
I owe the past ~3 years of my professional success to Stephen Hall's incredible performance in court. My case was unique and a trial ended up being the only viable option. Luckily, through sheer chance Stephen ended up defended me. Not only was he a comforting and engaging adviser, but his defense during trial was sharper than a tack. I was innocent, but the system is designed to find you guilty. Stephen wasn't having it. He tore the prosecution's argument apart, then his cross-examination was strategic - he understood my case exactly and created the perfect defense. I cannot thank him enough for what he did. Stephen is a no-brainer, seriously. He is an excellent Criminal Defense attorney, who is not afraid of trial. I cannot stress enough how much the entire trajectory of my life was changed by this man defending me at trial.

Review for Stephen Hall
I contacted Stephen Hall and hired him to represent me in a criminal traffic case. Stephen was courteous and extremely professional. Stephen guided me through every step of the way and made sure I understood the process. While I hope to never go thru something like this again, I would hire him in a minute. Stephen Hall is an excellent attorney.
