Workers' Compensation

When you are injured on the job, it is very important to have an attorney specializing in workers compensation advocating for your rights. Here at Hodges Childress Law, we understand the realities of workers who are injured on the job.  Before an injury, a worker is able to make ends meet, and provide security for his family. However, after an injury, that security is lost. We can say with confidence that we can regain your security. We are sensitive to your situation. Therefore, we quickly create a plan of action to return your security blanket.


If you claim is denied, call us.  We can advocate on your behalf to have your claim found compensable.  If you are not receiving the benefits you are entitled to receive, we can obtain each and every benefit you are entitled to receive.  If you need an appointment with a doctor, we can say with confidence that we can obtain a doctor appointment for you.  Any problem you have, we can resolve for you.


We resolve the majority of our workers compensation claims through settlement.  However, we do not rush to resolve any claim by settlement. It is very important to us that our clients receive proper medical treatment to ensure that they can return to the workforce. Once our clients are medically released, we begin settlement negotiations. Should settlement negotiations not be in our client's favor, we move forward with an administrative law hearing to obtain the best result for our clients.


Family Law 

Unfortunate situations arise every day in everyone's family. Those situations can spiral out of control at times. That's where our firm comes in on your behalf. We are experienced at getting control of your situation. No child custody, child support, no fault divorce, or guardianship is too large or too small for us to handle. We understand that this is a sensitive time for you and your family. Therefore, we will passionately and competently solve your family dispute the first time.


When you bring your case to us, you can rely on us to provide you with peace of mind through our efforts inside and outside of the courtroom. Every matter concerning your family will be treated as time sensitive, and with care. Therefore, you case will be solved as timely and as carefully, as possible.

Criminal Law 

Sometimes you can be at the right place, but at the wrong time.  We can help you resolve your criminal charges, whether your charges are classified as a misdemeanor or a felony. Most charges can be resolved without trial. For those cases that can be resolved without trial, we work aggressively to obtain results which can be expunged shortly after resolving your matter. Those charges requiring a trial are handled with a careful eye.

Personal Injury

We cannot control the actions of others, but we can control how we react to others. A serious accident can lead to devastation, and sometimes, desperation.  Insurance companies know this. That is why insurance companies try to give you money your case is not worth, or worst, deny your insurance claim. We not only fight to have insurance companies found liable, but we fight to get you the money your claim is worth based on your physical injuries.
