About Katrice Hall
If you’re seeking a no-nonsense attorney who will be a zealous advocate for you, then you’ve come to the right place!
Katrice Hall, the principal attorney of the Hall Legal Agency, is a bright, young woman who firmly believes that lawyers are public servants charged with the unique duty of protecting and enforcing clients’ rights. Katrice is a former Illinois state prosecutor. She was raised in Homewood, Illinois and attended Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School. Katrice is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, where she double-majored in African and African-American studies and marketing; and minored in legal studies.
To achieve her law degree, Katrice attended Chicago-Kent College of Law. During law school, she clerked for the Hon. Morton Denlow in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, where she sharpened her writing skills by preparing draft opinions for the judge. She also worked in her law school’s criminal defense clinic under the tutelage of respected criminal attorney, Richard Kling. After learning the criminal defense side of criminal practice, Katrice ventured to the prosecution’s side, where she interned with the felony division of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. To broaden her legal experiences, Ms. Hall worked at the Chicago Legal Clinic where she worked in family law on the behalf of low-income clients; she later returned to this line of work while working in private practice for veteran family lawyer, Gerald Nordgren.
After graduating law school, Ms. Hall worked as an Assistant Attorney General with the Office of the Illinois Attorney General under the Lisa Madigan administration. During her time at the Attorney General’s Office, Katrice worked in the Special Litigation Bureau and handled a wide variety of high-profile, highly complex litigation matters in which she worked to recover funds on behalf of the People of Illinois. Her caseload ranged in nature from white-collar crimes to a multi-million dollar contract dispute with the nation’s largest tobacco companies. After working as an Assistant Attorney General for some years, Katrice decided it was time to realize her dream of opening and operating her own practice. She wanted to address the void of sincere attorneys who fully serve people in their most dire times of need. She discovered that she had the perfect blend of aggression, integrity and precision that would be best utilized working with the people rather than for the people.
Katrice is a participant of the Chicago Bar Foundation’s Justice Entrepreneurs Project and has a concerted focus on serving as a neighborhood lawyer. She describes the Hall Legal Agency as a law firm specializing in “people law.” Hers is a people-centric, humane approach to practicing law that seems lost in today’s industry of “one-size-fits-all” mass litigation. Ms. Hall wants her clients to feel as if they have a lawyer in the family now.
