Biography

Robert T. Hall is among the most experienced trial lawyers in Virginia. For more than forty years, he has represented the families of those killed or those who were seriously injured through medical neglect, product defects, and transportation accidents. His litigation experience spans both civil and criminal matters and includes the landmark exoneration of Earl Washington Jr. through DNA testing. Robert's persistence in bringing about Mr. Washington's release from a sentence of death and his eighteen-year incarceration is captured in the book An Expendable Man by author Margaret Edds. Another book, Babymaker, by Rick Nelson, chronicles Robert's successful medical fraud case on behalf of twenty-six infertility patients against Dr. Cecil Jacobson, who was subsequently indicted and convicted on fifty-five counts of fraud and perjury. Robert is the coauthor of the Trial Guides book Grief and Loss with grief therapist Mila Tecala.
