  • Edgar I Hall

    Ms. Hodges is an excellent and passionate attorney who really cares about her practice area. She is my go to referral for any matter relating to animal law ranging to veterinarian malpractice to pet trusts. Given how few attorneys practice in this area, she is a great resource and someone to who I can refer in confidence.
