In early 2022, managing partner Sam Hall Jr. created a client-focused strategic communications and public affairs consultancy at Milwaukee-based Crivello Carlson S.C., in an effort to manage clients’ public messages along with their
legal issues. 

“Sam Hall is notable not only for what he does, but also for what he doesn’t do,” said Brenda Rykiel, human resources manager at Crivello Carlson S.C. “He doesn’t allow himself to be confined to, ‘Do it the way it has always been done,’ which can be especially true in the legal profession.” 

As a member of the National LGBTQ+ Bar Association, Hall promotes the professional development and advancement of gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender legal professionals. He was considered for appointment as a U.S. District Court Judge in 2019 and received bipartisan support for nomination to the federal judiciary by both Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Sen. Ron Johnson. Additionally, for more than 10 years Hall provided legal advice on LGBTQ+-related issues for the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance.
