Maria D. Hale, Esq.

Maria Hale grew up in Central Florida and has a deep love for her community and its people. After being nationally recognized for her skills as a trial attorney, Maria Hale groomed her talents while working for the Pinellas County State Attorney’s office. As a prosecutor, Maria learned many valuable courtroom lessons and gained hours of litigation experience. Those tools paved the way for Maria to enter the private sector and give back to those who desperately needed her services. As a private criminal defense attorney, she now has the unique opportunity to take what she has learned and “pay forward” the benefit to her clients. As a tough-minded, former prosecutor, Maria Hale now seeks justice for her clients by protecting their rights when charged with a criminal and/or traffic offense. She is the managing partner of Hale, Hale & Jacobson, P.A. In addition to managing the firm and practicing law, Maria serves on the Florida Grievance Committee and the Florida Code and Evidence Committee.

Maria Hale has found other ways to give back to the Central Florida community. As an active member of the Spring of Life Methodist Church congregation, Maria spends countless hours offering legal counsel to the indigent and gives generously of her time to those who are less fortunate. In an effort to impact future lawyers, Maria serves as an adjunct professor at Barry University School of Law, where she also serves as Trial Team Coach. In her spare time, she is an active member of the Central Florida Association of Women Lawyers (CFAWL).

Earlier this year, network television hired Maria as a correspondent on various legal topics. She is now regularly featured on FOX News, HLN and MSNBC, amongst others.
