Great experience
I highly recommend Mr. Dodd. He was very kind and professional throughout the claim process. He explained everything in terms that someone completely new to this process was able to understand. He was very helpful and prompt with responding. My experience with him was great!

Highly Recommend!
I would highly recommend Hube Dodd. He was extremely helpful at explaining everything for my case and how the entire process would work. He was quick to respond to any of my inquiries and did everything that could possibly be done to get me into a deferment program and to ensure that I would be able to get a DUI off my record. Many lawyers are only concerned about getting their money, but Hube is sincere and really cares about his clients. If you want a lawyer that truly cares about your best interest, Hube is your guy!

An Attorney For The Ages
"A lawyer without history or literature is a mechanic, a mere working mason; if he possesses some knowledge of these, he may venture to call himself an architect." Sir Walter Scott I like this quote and feel that Hube Dodd encapsulates these lofty words and may endeavor to call himself an architect of the highest order. But this would only serve to partially describe Hube Dodd and his service to the legal profession. To get the full scoope of the man one would need to bring the other virtuous qualities he posesses such as a deep empathy for all people, a quick wit, and keen sense of right and wrong. He is one of the most fully evolved people I have had the great pleasure in knowing and has represented me in the most qualified manner one can expect. He takes his legal responsibilities very seriously without losing his compassion and humanity to serve those who employ his services. He is truly a remarkable lawyer and an even better human being. One can make no better choice for an attorney than H. Hube Dodd.

What a crook
Hube is a crook, liar and a thief. What a moron. He could not even do the basics of any attorney, complete ignorance about my case, leaving me to fight a battle he was paid for. He ignores his calls and lies every time he speaks to a client. What a scam.
