Lawyer Don L. Hall

Don L. Hall practiced law in Birmingham for 13 years before moving to Bessemer in 2003 to join forces with Tommy Tucker in the creation of a small law firm offering diverse legal services.

After receiving his undergraduate degree in Public Administration and political science from Samford University in 1985, Hall earned his juris doctorate from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1989. He joined a Birmingham firm that combined plaintiff and defense work. He then left for a bigger firm, doing mostly civil litigation and becoming partner, before he and Tucker saw an opportunity to develop a new firm in Bessemer.

Since opening the firm in January 2003, Hall has focused his practice solely on civil litigation, including automobile and 18-wheeler accidents, products liability, workers compensation, wrongful death, pharmaceutical, and dram-shop cases. He has achieved multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts since he started the practice in Bessemer.

It’s a broad practice, and it’s one that Hall loves.

“I guess I like being my own boss,” he says. “I like having control over how things are handled, and how the cases are developed. I like having control and taking the initiative in how a case is handled from start to finish.”

Hall notes that it’s become harder for people who have been wrongfully injured or harmed to achieve the compensation or justice that they deserve.

“I think there’s been a trend in the last several years that’s more protective of companies,” he says. “There’s more arbitration now, changes in legislation, and our Supreme Court has been reversing many of the big verdicts that are rendered. It makes it a lot more difficult to handle plaintiffs’ cases.”

Despite the tougher climate for plaintiffs and their lawyers, Hall says that nothing brings him more  personal satisfaction than practicing law—whether it be in the courtroom in front of a judge and jury, or in his office meeting with clients.

“I like helping people,” he says. “And I like being in the courtroom. I like debating; I like arguing for something that is worth fighting for.”

When he’s not practicing law, Hall enjoys playing golf and spending time with his family.
