ADVANCING A TRADITION
The law firm of Hall, Morse, Anderson & Spinella, P.C. traces its origins to 1935 when two young lawyers, Mayland H. Morse, Sr. and George R. Grant, Jr. first established their law partnership on Main Street in Concord, New Hampshire. In those early years, America was still in the midst of the Great Depression and Concord's residents traveled the street of the state capital by "horseless carriage", footpaths and street cars.
Seventy years later, life in America and Concord has certainly changed and become more complex. Today, Hall, Morse, Anderson & Spinella, P.C. continues its tradition as a well-respected law firm offering legal services in Concord and throughout New Hampshire and New England. The firm is comprised of five attorneys and an experienced support staff of legal assistants, law clerks and legal secretaries.
Our law firm has preserved its original abiding character and commitment as a firm of skilled attorneys dedicated to personally and professionally serving businesses, families, individuals and communities.
Attorneys from our law firm have demonstrated their loyalty and dedication by serving the public and representing the private sector. Several distinguished attorneys from the firm have served as judges. Thomas L. Marble served from 1917 to 1943 as an Associate Justice of the Superior Court and as Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court from 1943 to 1946. George R. Grant, Jr. served as a Superior Court judge for 20 years, from 1953 to 1973. Present attorneys at our office have also served as trustees and directors for non-profit and profit corporations; served on state, regional and local governmental and educational boards; and donated considerable time and service to numerous community-related activities.
We cordially invite you to get to know us and experience the professionalism that underlies our tradition of service. If, as we hope and expect, you find that your matter is treated with the insight, care and attention you believe it deserves, with a satisfactory result and at a fair price, we will have met our goal.
Our clients are drawn from all walks of life, from all over New Hampshire and many other states. If there is one common element that our clients possess, it is that each has sought out qualified attorneys with whom they can communicate easily and trust implicitly. We strive to serve each client with care, sincerity, sensitivity and confidence. If a client's particular legal needs cannot be accommodated within the firm, proper assistance will be provided by referring the client to other qualified professionals.
Our clients include individuals, families, municipalities, industries, banks, insurance companies, manufacturing and producing companies, contractors, real estate entities and public utilities, among many others. The relationship between our clients and our attorneys is one of complete trust and confidence. All work is performed in absolute confidence. Clients are kept informed about the progress of legal services performed on a regular basis.
An attorney will discuss with you at the outset of any attorney-client represenation agreement how fees will be determined and how fees and other expenses will be billed. It is our aim to provide quality services at competitive rates. Professional fees on most legal matters are charged on a time basis. Contingent fees involving a no fee for services until recovery option are available where appropriate and agreed, including representation in personal injury, negligence, workers' compensation and other civil litigation matters. Periodic billing statements showing work performed to the tenth of an hour, where appropriate, are generated. A concerted effort is made by the firm to proceed by the most efficient path. Whether the matter at hand is simple legal advice, putting together a legal transaction, or litigation, our attorneys want every client to understand how the components of each particular matter are likely to translate into fees, and have input into shaping a "game plan" that is sensitive to any budgetary constraints.
