I was born in St. Louis, Missouri where I lived for twelve years. After a two year stay in Glen Carbon, Illinois, I moved to Madison, Alabama. I graduated from Bob Jones High School in 2002 with honors. I received an Auburn Alumni Academic Scholarship to Auburn University. I graduated cum laude from Auburn University in 2006 with a degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering and a Minor in Political Science. After that I took the path less chosen and went from Auburn to the University of Alabama School of Law. I graduated from Alabama in 2009 and have been working in the Huntsville area ever since.
As a lawyer at Hodges Trial Lawyers, I feel it is our duty to help out those in need. Therefore, while at Alabama, I worked with the Alabama Civil Clinic which allowed me to help college students and individuals in the community who were in need of legal assistance. I have also taken cases from the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program in an effort to help those who could not otherwise afford attorneys.
I also feel very strongly about accountability for one’s mistakes. It seems that far too often these days, the focus of a civil case is on how much money an injured person receives, instead of what mistake caused that injured person to become hurt. I believe our juries are important to the American legal system because they hold individuals and corporations responsible for their mistakes.
In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities such as the occasional round of golf or embarrassing myself on water skis. I also captain a local soccer team. I also enjoy letting my three Cairn terriers run around at the dog park.
That’s just a brief glimpse into my world. Please feel free to view the videos on our website to learn more about how you can help yourself and how we might be able to help you.
