A Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury attorney John Hall was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. While at West High School, he began working as an oilfield rig hand in summers. Working on rigs for 10 years and later working as a drilling fluid engineer let him see first-hand exposure to industry dangers.

Hall earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biological science from University of California, Davis. While working as a fisheries biologist in Lake Tahoe, a series of events and life experiences sparked his interest in going to law school. Hall went to McGeorge School of Law at University of the Pacific in Sacramento. He graduated and passed the California bar in 1981. He gained 12 years’ experience, ultimately becoming a partner, at a large Bakersfield firm prior to opening the Law Offices of John C. Hall.

He has multiple seven-figure settlements/verdicts for injured parties. Over the years, Hall has tried in excess of 75 jury trials, and settled over one thousand personal injury cases resulting in excess of 100,000,000.
