Superior knowledge
When we were faced with a job injury and loss of time and wages we sought the council of Mr. Hedrick. We were very anxious about my husbands future. Mr. Hedrick was very thorough and honest with us and helped us through the maze of Workmens Comp. He is very compassionate in his approach. I would highly recommend him.

Great guy and extremely helpful
I cannot recommend him enough. John and Jordana were extremely helpful, professional and punctual. They helped me with a workers comp claim that had been ongoing for 2 years and helped smoothly resolve it. I’d give them 6 stars if I could.

A listening ear with empathy
Mr Hedrick, viewed my workers compensation case and explains the do’s and don’ts before taking my case. He also made all communication from the smallest issue to the most complicated issues. He has a wonderful assistant that also was a wonderful guide to make the hardest situation a lot smoother. I will highly recommend him to anyone. I can’t thank Hedrick Law Firm enough!!

Excellent Experience
Mr. Hedrick and his team helped me with my case from getting me the money I deserve for my disability pay to the final settlement. They were very responsive and professional. I would definitely recommend Hedrick Law to anyone in need. Great experience!

Excellent Attorney and Team
I chose Mr. Hedrick to represent me because someone advised that he sticks with his clients for the long haul. I was severely injured nearly 16 years ago because the requested help to do the job was not provided. Yet when I was injured they denied my claim. Mr. Hedrick and his staff, including Ms. Jordana Mitchell, diligently supported and worked consistently to successfully overcome all challenges brought by the insurance company and their defense. I am very grateful for life saving surgery, medical treatment and all benefits won by Mr. Hedrick and his team.

Fantastic Law Firm!
John and Jordanna were there for me during the whole time my case was in mitigation. Anytime I needed them for information about my case, they were right there willing and able to do whatever it took to solve whatever issues I had. They kept me fully informed. John really went to bat for me when my company tried to lowball me in my settlement. He and Jordanna were always concerned about my family and me not only as clients, but as friends. I highly recommend this law firm if you have any worker’s compensation issues. I truly believe that no one will work harder for you. They are always honest with you about your situation. I’m so glad that the Lord led me to them.

Fantastic Law Firm
I suffered a major injury and went along with the employer's insurance recommendations. After having surgery, I felt there was quite a bit of damage left and the insurance company started to drag out my request for a second opinion. Feeling like I was being brushed off =, I consulted with John and Jordanna about this ongoing situation. John and Jordanna expidited my second opinion to a very competent surgeon who did have to preform a second surgery. Through all of the red tape John and Jordanna were always available and treated me as I were the only client they had.

Beyond excellent service
John helped me through a tough situation. He was very methodical and kept me informed every step of the process. His admin, Jordanna, could not have been more caring and informative. I really appreciate both of them and I would highly recommend their services.

Amazing Firm!
Mr. Hedrick and his staff were recommended to me after an accident at work. I had never had to deal with workmans comp before and it was very confusing! Mr. Hedrick was always there when I had a question or even when I needed to vent! He always responded quickly (even on weekends and also while on vacation!) I would HIGHLY recommend this firm if you have a workmans comp claim!

1st Rate Worker's Comp Attorney
I was injured at work in 2016. I knew this injury could be life changing and possibly career ending. After speaking with my attending doctor, I learned that I would never be able to work in the same capacity again. At this point, I reached out to Mr. Hedrick for a consultation. Mr. Hedrick was receptive, kind, helpful and seemed genuinely concerned for me as a person. As my claim went on, it was apparent that I needed representation because my employer had attorneys working on their behalf looking out for their best interest. I again met with Mr. Hedrick and retained him as my attorney. This was one of the best decisions I made during this very long, difficult process. Mr. Hedrick was there to give guidance, suggestions and advice in what was a life changing situation for me. Ultimately due to my injury, I had to change careers but Mr. Hedrick was there during this entire process. I don't think I could have come to a better resolution in my case and I know for a fact it would not have ended favorably if not for Mr. Hedrick's services. If I had the exact same scenario occur again, Mr. Hedrick would be my first and last phone call.
