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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

He dropped me after over a year of trying to get this case taken care of. The only time I met with him was the first visit and I specifically asked him if I needed a lawyer? He told me YES and he would go all the way to trial if need be. Today after the insurance company finally answered back and said they would not make an initial offer, he dropped me as a client! I believe he is a coward and will only go to court if it is 100% sure he will make tons of money. All he had to tell me from the beginning is he would not take my case instead of making me wait over a year while he was too busy to return my calls! As his assistant Ruth told me, he was busy with someone else's case! Now I have all these medical bills that I wouldn't have if he didn't tell me to keep going to the doctor. Trust me, he's not worth it!! If you have to settle your case on your own...this way you will at least get something for your accident!

Mr. Hodges was always very professional and kept me very imformed on changes in my case. If he didn't know answers to my questions he researched it right away. I feel like we received the maximum payout we could get and i would recommend him to anyone. I never felt intimidated or judged by him or anyone in his office like I have with other attorneys. If I need to, I will use his services again. .

Outstanding representation - made the plantiff look like the ass he is.
Cross examined their "expert witness" and got him to admit that he (the expert) would have done what the plantiff failed to do.
