Crispin S. Hall cannot remember a time that Callenders was not part of his life. As a little boy, he wandered among the books and listened, fascinated, to the words of legal wisdom of lawyers in the firm where his mother worked as an assistant. He knew from the time he entered school that he wanted to practice law.
Today, Crispin S. Hall is one of the most eager and dedicated men in the profession. Although among the youngest members of the Bahamas Bar, he brings to Callenders Freeport an already impressive record in litigation assistance, academic achievement and debate experience, including having won two prestigious awards for presentation and community involvement and having been invited to represent The Bahamas at two international mooting contests.
“People do not appreciate what it takes to put together a case — the research, details, the number of hours that attorneys and their assistants take to prepare their cases and their presentations. I have such an appreciation for the attorneys at Callenders, especially in civil litigation which is my primary interest. I cannot stand to see people demonized or see someone abuse their Parliamentary privilege or other seats of power,” says the passionate idealist.
He was called to the Bahamas Bar in 2015 and joined Callenders serving as a Pupil under Frederick Smith, QC after having interned in the Nassau office with legal consultant Cheryl Cartwright. While he was introduced to Corporate Law, Commercial Insolvency, Maritime Law and Civil Litigation during his internship, he assumed a post in the Freeport office to pursue a legal career in the areas of his passion – Human Rights, Environmental Law, Litigation, Contract Disputes, Judicial Review, Immigration Law, Personal Injury, Employment Law and Criminal Law.
Born and raised in The Bahamas, Mr. Hall earned an Associate of Arts degree in Law & Criminal Justice in 2009 from The College of The Bahamas (Dean’s List), went on to the University of The West Indies where he graduated with an LLB in Law in 2013. Two years later, he graduated from the Eugene Dupuch Law School with a Certificate of Legal Education along with the Munroe & Associates Award for Best Performance in Trial Advocacy.
