Internationally renowned attorney Andrew C. Hall has tried cases arising from some of the nation’s most significant historical events. From the Watergate trials and the Ohio savings and loan crisis, to the 2000 terrorist attack on the USS Cole, Mr. Hall’s trial skills are recognized as among the top echelon of litigators in the nation. Mr. Hall’s tenacity in the courtroom is in large part a product of his past. Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1944 while his Jewish parents hid from Nazi occupiers, Mr. Hall is tireless in his pursuit for justice and desire to stand up against oppression and abuse of power. Mr. Hall has emerged as a leader in the fight against state-sponsored terrorism. In 2010, he appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the families of Americans who were taken hostage and tortured following the first Gulf War. He has also represented the families of U.S. sailors who died in the USS Cole attack, for which he recovered a multi-million dollar payment from the Sudanese government. This year Mr. Hall recovered a judgment for $316,000,000 for the sailors who were hurt in the bombing of the USS Cole against the Government of Sudan arising from its support of terrorism.
