HBL Adds Renowned Los Angeles ERISA Attorney to Of Counsel Ranks

ATLANTA, GA – Serving employers in thirty-nine states, boutique ERISA law firm Hall
Benefits Law (HBL) welcomes Los Angeles-based attorney Alex M. Brucker to the Firm as
Of Counsel.

Brucker boasts almost fifty years as an employee benefits attorney, lecturer, and author,
having begun his career in benefits law in 1974, the same year ERISA was enacted. He has
been recognized seventeen consecutive years (2006-2023) as a California Super Lawyer,
having the Super Lawyer accolade in common with HBL Managing Partner Anne Tyler Hall
and fellow HBL Of Counsel attorneys Nancy Pridgen and Fred Dawkins.

In addition to ERISA legal compliance work, Brucker acts as counsel and co-counsel in
ERISA and tax litigation, and he has been an expert witness in ERISA and retirement and
welfare plan cases in both Federal and State Courts.

HBL Managing Partner, Anne Tyler Hall, shares that, “Alex is a talented, experienced
ERISA attorney. Alex abides by and is aligned with our mission to think creatively with
respect to nuanced and complex ERISA issues. We look forward to a long relationship with
Alex and more opportunities to provide proactive, strategic ERISA counsel for our clients
across the country.”

A Fellow of the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel (ACEBC), Brucker is also
a Director and Officer of the Small Business Council of America (SBCA), a legislative
advocate representing the interests of America’s small businesses and their owners. From
2008 through 2010, on behalf of the SBCA, he actively worked with the Senate Finance
Committee to obtain needed relief from disproportionate IRS penalties. The results of his
efforts were enacted into the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010, for which he
received the SBCA Special Appreciation Award.

HBL’s Chief Marketing Officer, David Hall, adds, “This cadre of talented and experienced
ERISA attorneys, representing HBL’s client-first mission, vision, and values, gives HBL
clients the best experience this industry has to offer, in my opinion. Having Alex on the team
only improves our ability to offer excellence in legal services to clients, regardless of size or
location, and it is fun to watch this team grow and collaborate.”
