Eileen Hall is a Texas lawyer who has always been guided by a commitment to community responsibility and social justice. She views "community" in an international as well as a local sense. As a young associate in a major Dallas corporate law firm, Eileen was asked to update the bylaws for the Dallas Urban League. Although she became that firm's first woman partner, she left the firm so that she could represent individuals and small businesses in commercial, family and estate matters, and so that she could have the time and flexibility to extend her leadership to community efforts.
Eileen served as a Board member and President of both the Greater Dallas Community of Churches and the Pastoral Counseling Center (formerly the Pastoral Counseling and Education Center). She also served on the District 6 Grievance Committee of the State Bar of Texas, having chaired the committee in 2012 - 2014. Currently, she serves on the board of Giving Hope, Inc., a nonprofit agency dedicated to reducing and averting homelessness.
Eileen earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of New Mexico. She received her law degree, with high honors, from Texas Tech University in 1976.
