After receiving his law degree, he clerked for Judge Inge P. Johnson in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama and then practiced in a Birmingham law firm for 10 years. His desire to return home to Madison County grew ever stronger, and in 2010 he came back to launch his current practice.
Throughout his career, David Hodge has focused his practice on products-liability cases and mass torts, but he also has a very strong emphasis on small-business representation and has won several significant verdicts for these clients. They include a $17.5 million verdict for a timber company in a case involving fraudulent representations about a faulty log skidder in 2009 and a $3.2-million verdict in DeKalb County in 2012 for a pig farmer who had received pneumonia-afflicted pigs from a livestock broker.
In all, Hodge has won more than $30 million in verdicts and settlements for his clients and he’s done so in state and federal courts all over the U.S., including California, Oklahoma, Illinois, New York, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
His practice is busy, but he manages to apply his commitment to justice in other ways as well. He is a frequent speaker at legal seminars and has also created two litigation support groups for the American Association for Justice, one dealing with lawnmower accidents and the other with use of Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA) in building materials.
