The firm that would eventually become Hall, Bloch, Garland & Meyer has been in continuous existence since the late 19th century. It was originally founded by John J. Hall after he returned to Macon from Washington, D.C., where he had been assistant attorney general to the Grover Cleveland administration.

One early client was Georgia Southern and Florida Railway Company, which is now a part of Norfolk Southern Railway Company and remains a major client of the firm.

In the 20th century, Hall hired several new associates: trial lawyer J. E. Hall, Charles J. Bloch, a leading attorney on constitutional law., and Ellsworth Hall, Jr., a specialist in railroad law and governmental law.

From this strong beginning, our firm has expanded our law expertise and areas of practice and now operates as a full-service, fully qualified law firm. In 2011 our team of attorneys merged with the Atlanta law firm of Crowley and Clarida, LLP, retaining the name of Hall, Bloch, Garland & Meyer, LLP, and our reputation of legal excellence.
