On November 16, Michael Hall filed his candidacy for    Fisher County Attorney.  Mr. Hall is running for the seat which will be vacated by Rudy Hamric, who is not seeking re-election.  When asked about why he is running for county attorney, Mr. Hall responded, “I have always believed that public service is one of the best ways to give back to the community.  After many folks approached me and encouraged me to run and after talking it over with my family and Mr. Hamric, I believe the time is right for me to seek the office of Fisher County Attorney and should the voters choose to elect me, to serve this community with hard work and thoughtful deliberation.” 

   Mr. Hall is a 1996 graduate of Sweetwater High School.  He received his B.A. in Public Policy Studies from Duke University in 2000 and his law degree from Boston College Law School in 2004.  Mr. Hall’s Fisher County roots run deep.  He is a fifth generation resident of Fisher County.  His family also has a long history of service to Fisher County.  His great-uncle, Ralph Ammons, was County Judge of Fisher County.  Another great-uncle, Johnnie Ammons, was the mayor of Roby.  His great-grandfather, Hugh Hall, was the Justice of the Peace in Eskota.  His brother, David, currently sits as County Court at Law Judge serving Fisher County. 

   Hall also said that he would bring a strong work ethic to the job.  “Be it in the practice of law, raising children, or anything else you do in life, hard work is always the best policy.”  Mr. Hall has practiced law with his father, Lance, for ten years.  He is a partner with The Hall Law Firm and has tried cases throughout West Texas.  Mr. Hall recently served as counsel in the high profile case in which a Fisher County jury found a Graham attorney and oilman guilty of fraud, breach of fiduciary duties, and other violations of Mr. Hall’s clients’ interests.  He also runs a cattle business with his dad and brothers.  Mr. Hall is married to Amanda Hall, who is a school teacher.  The couple has two young daughters, June and Emily.  

Mr. Hall expounded on the approach he hopes to bring the office of Fisher County Attorney.  “I have always been a big believer in the Golden Rule.  I will approach this job with the vigor, commitment to truth, and thoughtfulness that, as a citizen, I expect of others in office.”

Mr. Hall closed by saying, “I am so grateful and encouraged by the support and prayers that so many people have expressed.  If elected, I intend to work with Judge Holt, the commissioners, the sheriff’s department, and the good people of Fisher County to ensure a strong future for our children.”
