Born in Wakefield, New Hampshire, Hall attended Gilmanton Academy, and in 1851 was graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1855, practicing in Wakefield and Dover, New Hampshire.

Hall served as solicitor of Strafford County, 1862–1874, and as mayor of Dover in 1866 and 1867. He was a member of the New Hampshire Senate in 1871 and 1872, and he served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 1874. He was the United States Attorney for the District of New Hampshire from April 1874 to February 1879.
