Lawyers from across the state comment on beatdown case

August 2, 2014

Our firm is very pleased for our client and very proud of the job done by Jeremiah and co-counsel Hank Sherrod of Florence.  It was a difficult case and we believe justice was served.   Here is what lawyers from across Alabama had to say about Jeremiah and Hank’s work in this matter.  Jeremiah claims he is most proud of the congratulatory call he received from West Africa.

I add my sentiments to those expressed by Tom. It’s comforting to know we still have some Atticus Finches among us. Hank and Jeremiah, I stand in awe of you guys. You’ve made us all take a look at ourselves and ask if we would have had the courage to stand for justice.  -R. Edward Massey, Birmingham

Gotta feel good Hank and Jeremiah.  It is work like this that we go to law school for!  These are VERY tough cases. America is lucky to have lawyers who will work this hard on a  tough case. Everybody who reads that article knows you convinced everybody involved that these deputies were guilty to get that much money. Everybody.  -Thomas Campbell, Birmingham

Congratulations Hank and Jeremiah.  Outstanding result in a venue that is as conservative as they come! –Joel Hamner, Florence

I just wanted to say congratulations to you and Hank.  I agree with all the sentiments expressed by counsel throughout the state.  The comment I agree with the most, and I think is awesome is:  I’m so happy there are Atticus Finches among us today. –Andrew Sieja, Huntsville

A true victory for the weak among us thanks to the efforts of two strong and courageous lawyers! -Wes Laird, Opp

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”    Atticus Finch.               Good work guys.  -Ernest Hornsby, Birmingham

Way to go Hank and Jeremiah!   Talk about fighting the good fight.  Great job again.  -Brent Jordan, Huntsville

To be the man, you gotta beat the man, and Hodges just beat the man!  -Aaron Gartlan, Dothan

The lawyers that are brave enough, strong enough and smart enough to bring down any police departments are truly the giants among us. The poor are continually abused by the power of government and often times by police on the front lines. While I am generally very pro law enforcement the abuse that I see some police officers and departments commit today should trouble us all. The immunity given law enforcement has created a Wild West atmosphere.  Lawyers are the only ones to keep them in check.  God bless you guys.  -Stewart Springer, Birmingham

That is incredible!  I applaud your efforts and success!  -David Martin, Tuscaloosa

I’ve been following this disturbing story through the news since its beginning.  Excellent job, gentlemen.  -Chris Wooten, Huntsville
