Life is Unpredictable

And when you face devastating consequences from a car wreck, work accident, unfair treatment in a job, or a loved one’s wrongful death, you need an advocate with experience and who understands the system.

John C. Hall has over 30 years’ experience winning results for clients who have been injured or compromised. He knows that a client’s personal devastation comes with physical, financial, and emotional hardship and stress. He personally works with Bakersfield area clients every step of the way to help them understand all of their legal options. Clients appreciate that they are being told the “good news” or “bad news” about their case without “sugarcoating” the information necessary to make informed decisions about legal issues facing them. Unlike some attorneys or law firms, he doesn’t hand off cases to another attorney. When he takes a case, he represents those clients from beginning to end before a judge or jury or personally negotiates a settlement on the client’s behalf.

Mr. Hall is respected locally for excellence, integrity, and results. His reputation is built on providing straightforward advice about a client or potential client’s legal rights. In fact, most of the clients he represents come to him from attorney referrals. Prior jurors, law enforcement personnel, and former clients recommend him for getting favorable results with attention to the client’s needs, questions, and concerns.

Why John Hall?


You know you probably will need an attorney. However, you have little or no experience in how to select one. You are bombarded in the media with television, radio, newspaper and magazine ads by law firms representing their abilities and experience.

It is important to understand that some law firms and attorneys who advertise have limited trial experience and, in fact, may refer the clients to other attorneys to handle the matter.

Additionally, it is helpful to understand that attorneys who market themselves as the recipient of awards or titles bestowed upon them from various legal publications often times receive those awards or titles from publications after paying for ads in said publications. This is one factor in Mr. Hall’s decision not to advertise on television, radio or in printed publications.

In order to understand whether the attorney or law firm you consider is right for you, it is helpful to ask specific questions about that attorney or law firm’s experience with litigation.
