Born in 1944 on the floor of a coal cellar in Poland where his Jewish parents hid from the Nazis, Andrew Hall was only three pounds when he was born. His family ultimately escaped to Krakow through the sewer system, and after a harrowing journey across multiple borders, made it to the United States. According to Hall, the only thing that kept his family alive was the acts of a heroic person willing to risk their own life to rescue another. It is with that knowledge and gratitude that Hall has never been able to walk away from a victim reaching out their hand in need. Today, Andrew C. Hall is a Miami attorney and a leading terrorism litigator who is internationally recognized for his work in defending victims of state-sponsored terror and lobbying Congress to expand the rights for victims to recover in federal court. Hall is credited with being the first attorney to ever win a case in U.S. court against a sovereign nation for its sponsorship of terrorism. Among the countries he has successfully sued include Iraq, Libya, and the Republic of Sudan. For Andy, as a Holocaust survivor and victim of terror himself, this is as much a personal plight as it is professional. Check out this article from the Florida Jewish Journal to learn more.
