David Hall filed November 28, the first day to file for public office, for a place on the ballot as candidate for Blanco County Attorney in the March 6, 2012 Republican primary. Mr. Hall graduated from the University of Texas school of law and worked in Austin and San Antonio for the Jackson Walker law firm before opening his own law practice in the Old Blanco County Courthouse in 2005. His practice has focused on intellectual property, licenses, contracts, and employment agreements. Pro bono work has included family law and criminal defense cases.
Prior to attending law school, Mr. Hall served as an officer onboard a US Navy destroyer tender and worked for IBM, retiring after 30 years as a Senior Engineer with a Ph.D in mechanical engineering from UT. He served as Vice President and President of Travis County Water Control and Improvement District 17 on Lake Travis for 12 years. He and Ann (Aggie), a retired teacher and his wife of 31 years, owned and operated a private preschool, The Village School, near Lake Travis for over 8 years. They have lived just west of Blanco on a small hay farm since 2002. They have one son, a physician in Wisconsin, and three grandchildren.
“I started with a paper route when I was 10, and I’m not ready to stop working yet. I will be a full-time county attorney, applying the utmost integrity and work ethic to the job.” “I will be dedicated to helping the county judge, JPs, and the commissioners perform their jobs efficiently and legally.” “I will also be dedicated to backing up our law enforcement officers with strong prosecution.”
