Trevor B. Hall

Trevor B. Hall is a Senior Associate Attorney in our Austin office. Along with general school law, Trevor is a member of the Firm’s special education practice group. Trevor also advises school districts on business matters, specifically emphasizing insurance coverage and construction projects.

Trevor’s passion for the education system – specifically for the special education community – allows him to serve the Firm’s clients with compassionate and personal representation. He was an attorney with one of the largest commercial law firms in the southwestern United States and operated his own practice before seeking a career that more aptly suited his soul. Trevor’s broad experience in insurance coverage – he has participated in the recovery of over $100,000,000.00 in insurance proceeds in his career – and business law uniquely position Trevor to counsel school districts on a wide variety of matters.

Trevor attended the public school system in Amarillo, the crown jewel of the Texas Panhandle, where he regularly visits family. Trevor earned a B.A. from West Texas A&M University, where he majored in political science. In 2002, Trevor graduated magna cum laude and ranked #8 in his class from Oklahoma City University School of Law in 2002, where he earned many academic and other honors, including: Law Review, Phi Delta Phi international honor society, Order of Barristers, Appellate Moot Court, six CALI awards for highest grade earned in a class, extern to Hon. Robin Cauthron of the U.S. District Court for Western Oklahoma, and Christian Legal Society (chapter president).
