I believe in serving my clients and giving back to my community in ways beyond serving the needs of my clients.  I am currently the President of the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association and formerly the President of the Board of Directors of United Cerebral Palsy of Huntsville.  I have served on the board of several non-profits in North Alabama.  I make as much time as I can for my family.  I love to be outside hunting, playing sports, and on the water any chance I get.  I also love to see the Crimson Tide play football and basketball in person as much as possible.

All of my families needs
Over the years I’ve used I just trial lawyers for many of my families needs. Dan handle the conservatorship and estate needs. Jeremiah helped with a wrongful death suit. And Courtney has helped with the family court cases. I am always amazed at the compassion and quality of legal services Hodges trial lawyers provide. It’s also very convenient to have all of my attorneys under one roof.

Outstanding Attorney and Team
The whole team was fantastic to work with and Mr. Hodges is a tremendous attorney. He took one of our darkest moments and used some incredible expertise to work through very complex issues that resolve our matter well beyond expectations. Couldn't recommend him and the team more!!!

Extraordinary service
Mr. Hodges was recommended by a longtime friend of mine to represent my son in a court appearance for a DUI. Never having been in that situation before, I was so impressed with his professional, no-nonsense approach that resulted in the BEST results we could of hoped for! We are very thankful we were guided his direction and I am hoping that this will help you if you are having to make such an important decision in affairs that could change your future! He is the real deal and he and his paralegal, Denean, were consistently prompt in returning every call and email.

Rescued my divorce case
My divorce case was going nowhere and costing me a fortune in the process. It was becoming clear to me that I was destined to lose big with my current representation. Faced with the prospect of losing my kids and being burdened with unreasonable alimony and support I decided to seek a second opinion. I was referred by a friend to Hodges Trial Lawyers so I gave them a call for a second opinion. They were super responsive and came up with a strategy to win, and win we did! I ended up with ZERO alimony, no support, and a great custody arrangement that favors me and still allows the kids to see their mom.

Great Firm with geat results
I was involved in an automobile accident in another state shortly after I moved to Huntsville; it was complicated. Mr. Hodges was recommended to me by another member of the local Bar and my resolution couldn't have been much better. I felt like I was in capable hands as soon as he took my case. He and his staff anticipated everything that might need their attention and worked quickly to produce a good result. The case sometimes required us to address personal issues and concerns, but our relationship remained comfortable and professional in every way. The entire staff seemed interested not only in the case, but also my health and overall well being . I was informed about changing issues as the case developed, without being overwhelmed with any unnecessary day to day involvement. I had the luxury of healing from my injuries while their Law office pursued the more tedious and technical issues. I have never had a more productive business relationship with such a positive outcome. I am happy to recommend Jeremiah Hodges to anyone needing legal services. Thanks.

Went beyond expectations
In a recent situation, our family needed legal advice. Not only did his staff come to my office to give me some updates, but, Mr. Hodges called me on a Saturday and talked in length about our options. Even several weeks later, he has remembered our situation and asks about it. He and his staff has proven to us that they are a group who does care about their clients. I would definitely use this firm for our legal needs.

More Than An Attorney
My sister was in a horrible, head-on accident last April and almost died. As an attorney herself, she knew the importance of finding good representation so she had her husband call Jeremiah Hodges. He immediately met the family at the hospital and assured us that he would take over everything. He continued to manage the case over the next year and was quite adept at coordinating all the various details among the insurance companies, hospitals, and physicians - all the things you would expect from a talented and dedicated lawyer. But the way he immersed himself into my sister's recovery was what made Mr. Hodges special. He was at her side through all the surgeries and knew all her small victories and setbacks. He went out of his way to visit her and they developed a very special friendship along the way. The kind of bond that is created when you survive a traumatic event with someone over a long period of time. THIS is something beyond what one would expect from ANY attorney. As my sister expected, Mr. Hodges was able to maximize the amount of her settlement so she can not only pay back all the debt incurred along the way, but she now has the financial ability to make the improvements to her home that will make her life much easier. She is finally on her way to an almost complete recovery and I credit Mr. Hodges for a large part of her success. He assumed the majority of the responsibilities involved in this accident so that we, the family, could focus our attention exclusively on my sister and her recovery. It has been a long road, but I am so thankful to have had Mr. Hodges escort us on this journey. We now have more than an attorney. We have a family friend. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Case closed!
Jeremiah and his staff did an outstanding job representing us in our dispute with one of the big insurance companies. Hodges Trial Lawyers (HTL) did an excellent job preparing my wife for trial and really made her feel comfortable. We won the case and couldn't have accomplished it without the excellent representation of HTL.

Professional, Honest and Knowledgable
Jeremiah did an excellent job of carefully analyzing our case and presenting options on potential paths. He presented us with details on each option that highlighted his in-depth knowledge of Car/Auto Accident laws in the State of Alabama. I would highly recommend Jeremiah Hodges and his firm for anyone who has been involved in a car accident. He is very professional and cares about his clients.

great work!
Was dealing with an insurance company that would not reimburse for an accident claim. It was settled without incident after the first letter he sent. Called me twice with updates. Awesome attitude and professionalism.

caring community involvement
I met Jeremiah at a fundraiser. He went above and beyond just donating to the cause. He was very kind and offered to write an article in his company newsletter to help us spread the word about our cause. Later he called with information on ideas to legal help support our cause as well. He is more than just an attorney. Jeremiah is a man who genuinely cares!

Contract Dispute - Failure to Perform
I was referred to Jeremiah by another attorney in Huntsville, with whom I have a long-standing, trusted relationship. Jeremiah represented my company in a dispute that arose following the acquisition of a subsidiary company from the parent company. As a stipulation of the acquisition documents, the Parent was required to deliver certain technology and documentation to the former subsidiary within a given time frame; this requirement was not met, thus making the agreed-to purchase price unsatisfactory. Jeremiah prudently gathered all data relevant to the transaction, formulated a strategy to proceed, and quickly put his plan into action. He consulted with cognizant Subject Matter Experts in the technology at issue, gained an understanding of the value that it represented, and we agreed on his course of action. His personal experience and knowledge, and his dogged preparation, coupled with his extensive network of legal/technical experts, provided the perfect combination for a speedy and satisfactory settlement. After presenting his data/evidence to counsel for the Parent, they quickly agreed to a satisfactory negotiated settlement; this allowed us to avoid litigation and extended legal fees and time to resolution. It is my opinion that Jeremiah's attention to detail, fact-finding, and preparation at the outset enabled him to negotiate a result that I found very fair, and left our opponent with little cause to protract the proceedings. Based on my personal/professional experience with Jeremiah, I would confidently recommend him to colleagues, family, and friends for assistance in areas similar to my case with him. Also, based on this experience, I would also recommend him for cases in any area he and/or his colleagues practice; his talent could easily be applied in any case he accepts.

My lawyer for Life
CONFIDENCE in an attorney is critical to successfully presenting a case, thus, how did Jeremiah Hodges earn my confidence? On my first of three occasions of working with Mr. Hodges several significant characteristics were apparent: 1. his sincerity expressed via thoroughness of his inquiries regarding details of my knowledge / viewpoints of the specifics of my case, 2. layout of his process and timelines for identifying appropriate data from multiple sources; hospital, eye witnesses, defendants personal job history/background and case history, defendant's employer history of its involvement in similar cases, 3. Research of Alabama case law specific to my case to include review of that law with me followed by discussions of alternative strategic approaches to development of my case, 4. his recommendation supported by what I judged to be sound rationale for a specific approach indicated a thoroughness in thinking-through the dynamics of my case, 5. his development of a tactical step-wise process of educating me regarding expectations of the defense attorney's tactics; intimidation, pregnant-pauses during deposition phase questioning designed to elicit rash defensive responses from me which may provide advantage to the defendant, instruction to me regarding timing of my responses to ensure my countenance appeared truthful, confident and in-control. INTEGRITY; this word has a significant meaning for me; it defines a character trait which I have admired and have attempted to replicate in my life. During our first meeting, Jeremiah highlighted to me that his practice of law in this specific geographical area was a life-long pursuit for him...and that he intended to demonstrate himself as a man of integrity. Such a reputation is earned over time and for Jeremiah, professionally it must be earned within the complex legal arena; the judicial system, professional peers / organizations and with clients. The fact that he broached this subject indicated he was a man seriously pursuing the ideal of a life of integrity; Jeremiah's position on the matter is a major reason he is my attorney for life. There is no good substitute for AVAILIBILITY when a client perceives an urgent need for immediate discussion with his attorney. Jeremiah Hodges never failed to answer my calls within a reasonable time frame even when he was out of town. His demonstrated dependability increased with every occurrence of an impromptu or a previously scheduled meeting. Jeremiah was attentive to my concerns, never impatient, and always provided advice that was understandable to me. COMMUNICATION: It is important for a client to understand what the attorney is attempting to share. Effective two-way communication cannot occur if concepts and language being shared is not understandable to the client. On numerous occasions Jeremiah has sensed the need to explain to me in "normal" language certain legal terms and concepts. His willingness and ability to educate and inform me is a task at which I know Jeremiah excels. We communicate well, he does not "talk over my head" and this is another key reason that Jeremiah will be my attorney for life. Jeremiah Hodges has represented me on several types of cases; all outcomes have been successful.
