Biography

I was born in Huntsville, Alabama and grew up working in and around my parents’ local small business. I graduated from Randolph School (13’) where I was a member of the inaugural football team. I also played on the golf team and trumpet in the school band. After graduation, I attended Auburn University. I graduated cum laude in 2017 with a Batchelor of Science degree in Business Administration.

From there, I attended Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. During my time at Cumberland, I served as a Junior Editor for the Cumberland Law Review and on the board as the Online Research Editor. I authored an article on Alabama property law and eminent domain titled: “Southern Takings: Alabama Eminent Domain, Inverse Condemnation, and Regulatory Takings” 50 Cumb. L. Rev. 211 (2020). I received seven best paper awards including: Contracts I & II, Constitutional Law I, Property, State Constitutional Law, State and Local Taxation, and Advanced Evidence. I was also fortunate to serve on the Honor Court and as an Academic Support Mentor. At Cumberland, I had the opportunity to study under one Federal Circuit Judge, two Federal Magistrate Judges, and a Municipal Court Judge. I graduated magna cum laude from Cumberland School of Law in 2020.

My wife Alessandra and I were happy to return to Huntsville after I finished law school. We have made our home here and she is working in outside sales for United Rentals, Inc.

I handle personal injury, property, and civil litigation matters. Whether it is a contract, injury case, or real estate dispute; Hodges Trial Lawyers is prepared to guide you through the legal process. I enjoy hearing the life stories of our diverse clients and working hard to achieve their objectives. Being raised around a small business, I understand what it takes to get the job done.

When not practicing law, I enjoy spending time outdoors, working on my old Jeep, and playing golf
