"John S. Hall, Esq
Partner

John is a cum laude graduate of the Cardozo School of Law, where he was editor in chief of the Cardozo Journal of International and Comparative Law. His academic concentrations were in Intellectual Property and in Constitutional Law and Rights. At Cardozo, He worked as a legal assistant for the entertainment law firm of Rosalind Lichter. John also did an externship in the legal department of DC Comics, where he helped defend the rights of Superman, Batman, and many other beleaguered superheroes. He recently worked as a legal researcher for the film No Precedent, a documentary about the Bush v. Gore decision.

John is also the lyricist and lead vocalist for King Missile, the germinal* spoken word-with-music band, whose hits include "Detachable Penis," "Take Stuff From Work," "Sensitive Artist," and many others. King Missile recorded three CDs for Atlantic Records and several independent CDs. In this capacity, John has dealt with lawyers, managers, accountants, A&R representatives, publicists, record producers, video directors, radio DJs, MTV VJs, independent promoters, record company presidents, and other "important" figures in the music industry.

John is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey.

* the word "germinal" is the gender neutral form of the word "seminal."

"John S. Hall is one of the most interesting poets ever to come out of the state of New York. Combine that writing skill with the musical talent of Stephen Tunney (aka Dogbowl), and you've got one amazing record. Poet-Rock at it's best!"
Deeply damaged fun

"This is the sort of top-40 music that would emerge in a culture that deified Hunter S. Thompson. It's the funniest disk I own, save for maybe my Holy Modal Rounders stuff; it's warped psychedelia, joyfully infantile, deranged stuff, never afraid to laugh at itself, or cry hysterically, or freak out and hide in the closet all night until the faces on the walls go away. It's also strikingly intelligent, with a very sharp edge for satire, effortlessly incorporating 60's conventions and soooo much more into it's mix. Fun at parties, if your friends have personality disorders or are just... uhm... being "experienced.""
