I have had the pleasure of working with John and getting to know him and his style of work. He is very innovative, organized and efficient. He cares about helping his clients in a way that leads them to great results. John understands that he will be more successful by tailoring his approach to his client’s needs so that it is a win-win for all parties.

I had John review some very lengthy and complex legal documents for a venture capital investment I was making in a start-up business. I had never done such a thing before and was quite nervous. I wanted to make sure that the documents were drafted fairly and that they didn’t open me up to any liabilities beyond my initial investment. John thoroughly reviewed the documents in short order, walked me through the documents to help me understand them in plain English, and put my mind at ease that the documents didn’t put me at risk for any future or unforeseen obligation. John is a sharp attorney who pays strong attention to detail. He is quick in his turn around and yet is thorough in his review.

I came to Mr. Hodges with an estate planning question last month and was thoroughly impressed with his detailed answer to my question. He provided me with multiple options to resolve my issue and discussed with me the positives and negatives of each option. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, honest attorney in the Des Moines area. Having dealt with several attorneys in the past, his understanding of the law and ability to explain it is superb.
