About Me

Mr. Dodd represents clients in both state and federal courts in both civil and criminal matters. Originally starting his career at Jaffe, Strickland & Drennan, he rose from junior associate to become that firm’s Managing Partner in 2009. In 2010, he founded The Dodd Law Firm, where he puts his extensive trial experience to work for a select group of clients. In 2010 he was recognized by the Superlawyer’s Group and Business Alabama Magazine as one of the State of Alabama’s “Outstanding Young Lawyers” in their Rising Star section, an honor they repeated in 2011 and 2012. In 2012 Mr. Dodd was named by Birmingham Magazine as one of the region's Top Criminal Defense Lawyers as well as one of its Rising Stars. Mr. Dodd is rated AV-preeminent by Martindale Hubbell, their highest peer review rating for both professional ability and ethical standards. 


Mr. Dodd was one of the original 75 attorneys to be named to the Federal Northern District of Alabama’s CJA panel. Dodd was invited to attended the prestigious Bryan R. Shechmeister Death Penalty College at Santa Clara University in California, and recently co-authored a chapter in "Defending DUI Vehicular Homicide Cases", a practitioner's handbook published by Thompson West.


In addition to his extensive experience and training in the area of criminal defense, Mr. Dodd frequently practices in the area of civil defense representing both municipal and corporate clients. Mr. Dodd served as defense counsel for Birmingham’s Mayor Bernard Kincaid, and has represented numerous professionals, such as pharmacists, nurses and other lawyers in administrative hearings in front of various state licensing boards. Mr. Dodd is also one of the lawyers retained by the Policeman’s Benevolent Association to represent its members.


Mr. Dodd has represented injured plaintiffs in both state and federal courts as well, having served as lead trial counsel in a number of personal injury cases. The breadth of Mr. Dodd’s practice and experience allows him to provide each of The Dodd Law Firm’s clients with a unique, global perspective


In Law School Mr. Dodd was awarded the Dean Thomas W. Christopher award for Lasting Contribution to the Law School, as well as the George Peach Taylor award for his role on the school’s Trial Advocacy competition team.
