George Hall named Georgia Defense Lawyers President-Elect

George Hall, a defense attorney for Hull Barrett Attorneys, has been named president-elect of the Georgia Defense Lawyers Association. He has been a member since 1988.

The 900-member Georgia Defense Lawyers Association is a statewide organization for lawyers who specialize in defense litigation. Last year, he served as the treasurer. Before that, he was the organization’s secretary and the editor of its journal.

Hall joined Hull Barrett in 1986 after completing law school at the University of South Carolina. He specializes in general civil defense litigation and is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

“The Georgia Defense Lawyers Association is great because it lets you meet and get exposure to lawyers from all over the state. I have made lots of referral relationships, but even more important, I have made a lot of good friends through the organization,” Hall said.

Originally from Red Springs, N.C., Hall and his wife, Margaret, live in Augusta and have two adult sons.
