Profile

Our Firm's motto reflects our commitment:  "Where Right Wins Over Might."  As lawyers, we are given the opportunity to help those whose voices might otherwise be quieted by the powerful.  While we also represent powerful corporations and individuals, the "rightness" of a client's issue, as opposed to the size or strength of the client, is what we pledge to prosecute. Through honest hard work, and an abiding commitment to truthfulness , we strive to advance our clients' positions to achieve a just outcome. As Christian lawyers, we are guided by the highest principles of ethics and honesty.  We believe that the quest for a fair and just outcome is not inconsistent with the dictates of a well-served Christian life.  We also recognize the right of freedom of religion and are zealously dedicated to protecting  that right for everyone.We would be honored to be considered to handle your legal needs.Benjamin L. Hall, III, Ph.D. (Duke), J.D. (Harvard)
