Brittany C. Hall

Attorney at Law

At first, Brittany had her sights set on criminal defense, but once she entered law school she honed in on family law. “For me, I want to feel like I’m making a difference,” says Brittany. “When clients come to me with divorce or custodial issues, their worlds are falling apart. They are in sensitive situations – they may be fighting for their children – so they need an attorney who they can trust and who will help them.”

Meet Brittany C. Hall, Attorney at Law

Some people just know what they are meant to do from an early stage in life. Brittany is one of those people. In high school she could be found in the courtroom, watching the judges and attorneys in action as part of her internship with the Clerk of the Superior Court in Rockingham County, on the North Carolina-Virginia border. It was there, earning a small amount of class credit, that she recognized her internal drive to fight for people’s rights and argue for her beliefs when questioned. Brittany says the clerk there still remembers her sitting in the courtroom as a high school student, listening attentively to every word.

At first, Brittany had her sights set on criminal defense, but once she entered law school she honed in on family law. “For me, I want to feel like I’m making a difference,” says Brittany. “When clients come to me with divorce or custodial issues, their worlds are falling apart. They are in sensitive situations – they may be fighting for their children – so they need an attorney who they can trust and who will help them.”

While in law school and at the age of 22, she took her first flight on a trip to study abroad at University College Dublin in Ireland. There, Brittany lived with six friends in the dorms and explored much of Ireland. She learned that staying in hostels was not her cup of tea, after a single traveler tried to enter their room late in the evening and was mistaken for a thief.

Up for Any Challenge as a Lawyer

Aware that she serves as the voice of her clients in the legal process, Brittany focuses on being a dedicated advocate. She is a self-confessed spitfire, a strong-willed yet personable extrovert who cannot let injustices go unchallenged. Described by her peers as tenacious, ethical and thorough, Brittany values her reputation in the community. She is continuously seeking to grow in her profession. One way she is doing so is by representing parents in Department of Social Services (DSS) cases, providing representation to those who would not otherwise be able to afford legal counsel. She has worked with Janet Gemmell in DSS court several times. Although still learning to appreciate the vast amount of paperwork involved in being an attorney, she is most in her element working in the courtroom on behalf of her clients.

Exploring her Inner Artist and Motherhood

“Artsy” at heart, Brittany is an amateur photographer, taking family portraits in her spare time and exploring natural settings for the perfect photo. She even took some of the firm member’s individual photos – can you tell which ones? Hint – you will see a beachy, local background.

Brittany and her husband, whom she married in 2013, are both history buffs and members of the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society. They serve as docents at the Society’s Latimer House, built in 1852 during the Victorian period. Of course they are making their own history with two gorgeous sons of their own. They cherish Wilmington’s warm weather and try to take both their dogs and their children out for walks, often on the beach.

North Carolina Roots and Education

In just three years, Brittany earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Government from Campbell University in North Carolina, and then attended Elon University School of Law in Greensboro. In 2013, she was admitted to the North Carolina State Bar and has been practicing family law ever since. Brittany comes to Cape Fear Family Law from the Nettleman Law Firm in Wilmington. She has set her sights on someday attaining board certification like Janet. “There is always something else to accomplish,” says Brittany.
