About me

Joshua Hale is a caring
and compassionate attorney who has handled criminal law, DUI, family,
small business, and many other areas of law.

Mr. Hale grew up in central Ohio, and graduated from Newark High School. His immediate family consists of World War II veterans, Korean War Veterans, and veterans of the Army, Navy, and
Marines. His military family persuaded him to attain an education. Upon
graduation from high school he entered college at, Ohio University, the oldest University in Ohio, and ninth oldest public University in the United States.
While believing an education is very important, Mr. Hale still
identifies with his military roots, and values the lessons instilled by
his family. During university Mr. Hale participated in study abroad
programs, and lived in and worked in such locales as Holland, Scotland,
Hong Kong, and Mexico, among others. For this reason he has a firm basis of knowledge on both local and international affairs.

After University Mr. Hale worked in the telecommunications industry for
several years. It was ultimately working in front of a computer that
led Mr. Hale to decide to attend law school, he wanted to be able to
have a more direct impact on his clients than a computer would allow.
While attending Golden Gate university School of Law, Mr. Hale attained
two certificates of specialization in International Law and
Intellectual Property, and graduated with distinction. He was also able
to complete law school in two and a half years, which is very rare. He
did this with a zest for the law and a keen interest in becoming a lawyer so he could help people.

If you are now looking for a lawyer, one piece of advice: Trust your
lawyer, know your lawyer. When you talk to some firms, you never talk
to a lawyer until after you have hired the firm. You will always have
access to your lawyer at Hale Law Group, from start to finish. Mr. Hale
has excelled scholastically, in his practice, and in all areas of life.
Don't you deserve to feel you are getting the best for your money? Who
wants good enough, when you can be with who you feel is the best?

Don't settle for less, talk to an attorney that is aggressive and
caring. Mr. Hale has experience dealing with hundreds of matters in California, Southern and Northern. He has a good working relationship with other defense
counsel, prosecutors, and judges, which gives him the ability to work
professionally and courteously with all the parties in this process.
His experience in International business and transactions speaks
volumes. Do not leave your case in less capable hands. He also has
extensive experience in administrative, immigration, and international
law.  Do not leave your case in hands less caring. Hale Law Group is a
firm that is caring and capable, and has your best interests at heart
at all times.

A few words from Mr. Hale:  
I always have, and always will fight for my clients, and will do so for
you. I work with many other attorneys that trust me with their client
matters, and directly with their clients. The best attorneys (in my
opinion) in California trust me, I believe this is because they
understand my work ethic, my legal ability, and my willingness to throw myself into my own client matters.

My past experience in court and with my clients is overwhelmingly
positive. I have worked with some of the world's largest companies
including AT&T,
SBC, Cable & Wireless, Chrysler, Hong Kong Telecom, Pacific Century
Cyberworks, and the YMCA. My experience has taught me some very
valuable lessons. EACH client has my word, they will never be treated
like a number.

Each client will always be treated as our
most important asset, with respect, and given logical thought-out
answers to their questions. Most importantly, as my family has always
told me, "A job worth doing, is worth doing well."
