The 8th Ward is proud to support Chris Hall for Court of Common Pleas.

Rated “Highly Recommended” by the Philadelphia Bar Association, Chris Hall has practiced law for over 30 years, both as a federal prosecutor and as a civil attorney. During his 16 years with the US Attorney’s Office, Hall focused on parallel criminal and civil fraud actions, including environmental and public corruption crimes that victimized Philadelphians. Hall won a conviction in the first “environmental justice” prosecution in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, against a contractor that demolished Grant Paper Company factory without first removing the asbestos, and then dumped the contaminated debris in the Cobbs Creek section of Southwest Philadelphia. He also brought to justice predatory lenders who had tricked Hispanic homeowners into refinancing their homes by preying on their inability to understand contract terms because of their language barriers. In 2006, Hall joined Saul Ewing, where he now chairs the White Collar Defense and Government Litigation Practice.  With approximately 40 complex trials under his belt, Hall has expertise with the rules of evidence, a wide variety of legal standards, and the art of crafting well-written pleadings. Hall demonstrates a deep appreciation for the human dimension of trial work, including the needs of victims, witnesses, experts, clients, and jurors. Along with his current practice, Chris also represents indigent criminal defendants as a member of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Criminal Justice Act Panel. Outside the courtroom, Hall has managed and mentored teams of junior attorneys, and has administered a budget as the practice group Chair. Hall’s clients have recommended his to Chambers USA, the leading directory of attorneys for in-house counsel. He is an outstanding candidate who deserves your support.
