Alexander Hall is learning about the world of medicine through the law. For the past three years, he has taken on greater responsibility with Corneille Law Group in Green Bay, where he focuses on personal injury defense, insurance coverage defense and appellate litigation cases.
“My work defending insurance companies and medical negligence cases is both challenging and complex,” Hall said. “Not every case is the same. One day I could be defending a surgeon and the next could be defending a family practice physician. With each case, I learn different aspects of a specific disease and surgical processes. This is not something you learn in law school.”
He has developed his skill and taken on larger cases in recent years, including large-loss cases, defamation cases, legal malpractice cases and other professional liability cases.
“Alexander has been a valuable asset to the firm,” said Mark Budzinski, managing member of Corneille Law Group. “He is unique in that he brings strong writing and research skills to the firm. At the same time he is a strong advocate in the courtroom at trial. He is apt at handling our larger exposure cases, including long-term care and medical negligence cases.”
Hall graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science from Marquette University in May 2011. He continued on to earn his law degree from Marquette University Law School.
During law school, he was a comment editor for the Marquette Law Review and also participated in the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic, for which he was inducted into the Pro Bono Society.
In addition, he worked as a student prosecutor for the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, where he frequently appeared in criminal court, handling motion hearings and successfully trying cases to verdict.
Before joining Corneille Law Group, Hall served as a law clerk to Justice Michael Gableman on the Wisconsin Supreme Court during the 2014-15 term. Hall says he still draws on that experience in his current role.
He continues to give back to his profession by serving as an investigator with the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation.
“While clerking I gained a true appreciation for litigation attorneys and got to see all aspects of cases at the Supreme Court level,” he said. “Working with the OLR is important and helping the profession self-regulate is important for the future.”
