  • Jason Wendell Blanchard

    Mr. Hudson is a fine lawyer and person. As a law school student, he gave me the opportunity to work for him during the summer. I learned a lot from Mr. Hudson about how to build relationships with clients, including the importance of always looking out for the best interest of the client. After that summer, he has always made himself available to give advice to me, especially on issues of media law and appeals. You cannot go wrong with engaging Mr. Hudson to represent your legal interests.
