Hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, Associate Attorney Hallie Pease joined the firm in 2020 following her graduation – cum laude – from St. Mary’s University School of Law. While attending law school, Hallie worked with our firm as a student clerk, after completing clerkships with Goldstein & Orr and Judge Kevin Yeary at the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals – the highest court to decide criminal matters in the State of Texas. She also served for two years as the president of the St. Mary’s University Criminal Law Association. She managed all of these time consuming commitments while simultaneously representing criminal defendants with the St. Mary’s University Criminal Justice Clinic. Hallie has demonstrated a deep passion for criminal law. Before receiving her license, Hallie was already considered by the firm to be an essential asset at trial, sitting at counsel table through two murder trials the year she graduated from law school. She is presently licensed to practice law in the State of Texas and the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.
