I contacted James Hall after my daughter died at a local hospital. No one at the hospital would provide answers to me or explain how my daughter could have died in their care. The attorneys I met with before Mr. Hall did not take my case and were concerned about filing a case against a local hospital. Mr. Hall believed in me and my daughter’s case and fought for me to obtain the answers as to what caused my daughter’s death and what the hospital failed to do to protect my daughter while she was in their care. Mr. Hall obtained justice for my daughter’s death for my family. Mr. Hall was there for my family from the start of case to the end. Anyone looking for a personal injury attorney should contact Mr. Hall.

I hired Mr. Hall after I was injured while shopping at a local convenience store. Initially, the store completed an incident report form and told me that they would take care of my medical bills. After receiving medical treatment for my injuries and started to receive bills for my treatment, the store then told me that they did not believe that I was injured at their store and that they would not pay for my medical treatment or bills. I hired Mr. Hall to help me show the store that I was injured at the store and that my injuries were significant. Mr. Hall was willing take my case to trial, obtain a significant verdict which resulted in a settlement shortly after trial. I have Mr. Hall to thank for obtaining verdict and settlement in my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Hall to anyone who is injured by someone’s negligence and suffers permanent injuries and damages.

Mr. Hall was recommended to me by a friend after I was involved in a motor vehicle crash. As a result of the crash, I had to undergo surgery and could not continue to work as a nurse. The insurance company tried to argue that I may have been at fault for the crash and that my injuries were due to arthritis and not from the collision. Mr. Hall fought back against the insurance company and provided the evidence in the case to establish that I was not at fault for the accident and that my injuries and surgeries were related to the crash. Mr. Hall believed in my case and he obtained a significant settlement for me for my injuries. Mr. Hall did an amazing job fighting against the insurance company and obtained a settlement for me that I never thought possible. I recommend Mr. Hall for any motor vehicle accident or personal injury case.
