Attorney Robert Hale began his legal career at the Office of the Federal Public Defender, E.D.N.C., in 1994, first as a Research and Writing Specialist, then an Assistant Federal Public Defender, representing people charged with federal crimes.  In 1999, he opened his own practice.  Although he no longer accepts court-appointed cases, his service as a public defender taught many lessons and skills, and served as a guide for his later work as a private attorney.

Since 1999, his practice has expanded to include state criminal charges, primarily in Wake County, North Carolina.  Yet, he has continued to represent people and organizations in federal court.
